An Enchantment of Ravens
By Margaret Rogerson
My review: 4 of 5 stars
An Enchantment of Ravens is a romantic fantasy with fascinating folk lore about fairies. For the most part the story was exciting, mysterious, and witty. The plot and characters were not complex nor deeply developed, but it kept me interested enough to read straight through. The heroine displayed strength and intelligence throughout. The romance wasn’t entirely believable, but it was sweet nonetheless. The pace of the novel was primarily fast, and at only 300 pages, it was a quick read. The revelations about fairies provided the most entertainment. A great escape for a relaxing evening. Note: The book contains some mild swearing and brief sexual situations (although no actual sex).
“I paint not because I want to, not because I’m good at it, but because it is what I must do, what I live and breathe, what I was made for” (p. 33).
“Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us?” (p. 168).
