An Enchantment of Ravens Review

Check out this teen review of An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson:

“This book was a beautifully written original story about fairies and humans. The author’s treatment of fairy myth was very creative and innovative. The author left an open ending and I would be excited to read any future books she releases. I highly recommend this book to fantasy readers!”

This review was submitted after the reader recieved an advance copy of the book as a Summer Reading prize. Looking for a free book for fall? There are a giveaways in the teen corner of the library, available while they last. And don’t forget to check out An Enchantment of Ravens, available  now.
