I was definitely expecting more from that. I had fairly high expectations for An Enchantment of Ravens since I've seen so many positive reviews for it. While I didn't hate it, it definitely wasn't a favorite at all. In fact, I actually thought it was kind of boring - I probably zoned out a few times while listening to the audiobook. There's definitely instalove here which I found pretty annoying since the two leads don't really know anything substantial about each other while they're declaring their undying love From there on in, the story really revolves around their romance which I wasn't invested in. I did think the way the eerie Fey are presented is interested is a fascinating one. I haven't had the opportunity about their limitations in regards to craft before, but it was certainly intriguing. Overall, I had hoped to like this one a little more. There were some elements of the Fey that I found myself interested, but the romance at the heart of this story didn't hold my interest.
I listened to this audiobook from February 14 - 15, 2018 and my review is also on Goodreads.
