If you’re a huge Sarah J Maas fan like me, than you’ll LOVE An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson! Like ACOTAR, An Enchantment of Ravens also follows a girl who gets pulled into the faerie courts against her will. Isobel, like Feyre, is a strong and independent individual who stands up for what she believes in and never backs down. The male protagonists are both enchanting and brooding, and everything you want from your male lead. You’ll be sucked into the story from the first page and won’t be able to put it down. Rogerson creates a faerie court in An Enchantment of Ravens that’s completely her own, it’s extremely different than ALL the faerie books I’ve read!
Bonus! The same designer helped created BOTH of these fabulous covers! Charlie Bowater inspired the dress on the cover of A Court of Thrones and Roses, and later did the artwork for the ACOTAR Coloring Book. She also created the stunning artwork on the An Enchantment of Ravens cover!
Here is the full description of An Enchantment of Ravens. Trust me, you DON’T want to miss this one.
A skilled painter must stand up to the ancient power of the faerie courts—even as she falls in love with a faerie prince—in this gorgeous debut novel.
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. 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—and that love violates the fair folks’ ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight 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.
