Hello fellow book lovers! It is time for yet another prompt drawing. I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of seeing these because we still have 13 more to go this month. I’ve really enjoyed doing these prompt based readings and may even incorporate it into another monthly challenge sometime later this year. I hope I draw an easier one today, because these past few have been pretty difficult to choose books for. Fingers crossed!
“Read a book with less than 350 pages.”
Hmm. I’m not sure if I would consider this easy or hard. Easy because the book will be shorter which will really help me to catch up on my reading. Hard because there aren’t a ton of books to choose from on my tbr that are less than 350 pages. But then again, maybe not having too many options will make it easier for me to just pick one.
Now I must browse my tbr for this little baby of a book! Wish me luck..
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
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.
At 300 pages this will hopefully be short and sweet (Bonus points because it’s a standalone!) Also I am so excited to read another story from Margaret Rogerson. I read Sorcery of Thorns and fell in love her writing style. I can’t wait to get to this and experience another world created by this author. And it’s about fair folk and as you probably know by now: if it’s Fae, it’s for me.
If you have read this, please let me know your thoughts! I feel like i haven’t heard much about this and want to know more about it! As always, thank you and Happy Reading 🖤
