Waiting On Wednesday #20 | An Enchantment of Ravens


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!

This week I’m spotlighting An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. I stumbled across this one a few weeks back and two words had me sold on it before I even finished reading the synopsis – fair folk. I’ve probably said it a million times now but any book with faeries is one that I automatically add to my TBR. That plus the fact that this book sounds like it’s going to be incredible has me beyond excited to read it once it’s released.

30969741Release Date: September 26th, 2017
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Goodreads Synopsis: 

Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. There’s only one way to save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.

Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

You can pre-order it on: Amazon, B&NBook Depository, Google Play, iBooks, and Kobo

    • Awww that sucks! I have to admit I’ve been obsessively checking NetGalley hoping this one would appear on there. 😂 But yes the cover is so gorgeous and same about fae, I have to read all of the books with faeries in them I swear lol. So many books and so little time to read them all! 🙈 Happy reading to your too Lilly!! 😊💕


  2. This cover is freaking AMAZING!! And that synopsis has definitely caught my eye. I love fairy’s and courts so eeeeeeeekkkkk! Cannot wait to read your review on this one when it’s released and you have a chance to read it ❤

  3. I have seen that book around a little bit and it sounds so, so good! I’m getting more and more into fantasy lately, plus, I love the faieries aspect of this SO much. 🙂

  4. Wow this sounds like such an amazing book Melissa, I was pretty much hooked from the very first sentence and reading more of the blurb just seemed to make me more and more desperate to get my hands on this book right this very second. I haven’t read many books with fair folk in but the ones I have I’ve loved (most notably has been anything by SJM, with Holly Black’s book a close second) so I guess I’m looking for more books I can add to my to-read list that feature faeries in them.
    At least it’s not too long until September and until this book is released. I’m sure it will be worth the wait though! 🙂
    Great pick for this week Melissa. 😀 ❤

    • Right? It had me hooked from the first sentence in the blurb too. It just screams being a book that I’ll most likely drop everything to read once it’s released. I haven’t read very many with fair folk in them either. Only four series I can think of off the top of my head. Two of which are both by SJM. I so need to read Holly Black’s fae books soon! I can’t wait for Cruel Prince to be released.
      Have you read The Iron King by Julie Kagawa? That series is really good and centered on faeries. 😁
      I’m so glad it’s not long until September! But yeah this one will definitely be worth the wait.
      Thanks so much, Beth!! 😊💕

      • It screams that for me as well. Granted I’m not a massive massive fan of things relating to fair folk, possibly because there aren’t that many books that feature them, but I love fantasy and this one has everything I love about fantasy books for sure.
        I haven’t no. I think it’s on my TBR list but it’s one of those series I added ages ago and just still haven’t gotten around to. One day, hopefully soon.
        You know the time will likely fly by. That’s all right! 😀 ❤


    • I actually discovered this one through someone else’s WoW a while back so I attribute that lovely meme to discovering books. 😂 It really does sound incredible though so here’s to hoping it lives up to that! I haven’t preordered it just yet. I think I’m going to wait to see a few pre-release reviews first. 😊

  5. I hadn’t heard about this book before reading your post. But it sounds sooo amazing and I NEED to check it out! 😀 Plus the cover is simply gorgeous (which is always a plus)! ❤ Great post Melissa! 🙂


  6. I haven’t heard of this book, but after reading your post I’m intrigued. I’m definitely going to check this book out further. I love the cover as well. Awesome post!

    I’m new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.
