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.… (més)

I really like the cover of this book! I was impressed at how the story feels like a journey, with the main characters ending up physically where they started, but with a broader view of themselves and of the world. I also thought the fae in this book stayed consistent to the rules the author set and to common fae lore.

I would have liked to see more about why the magic system works the way it does. The fae can't create anything that requires skill and artistry, which sets up the budgeting system and why the humans aren't all dead. I didn't, however, get the sense magic had a limit of how many illusions could be happening. The other thing I would have liked to see would be a more detailed epilogue, I want to know what's happening to these people in 10 years, 50 years. Still, I really enjoyed the journey and the story.

I really enjoyed this! Very good story with a sweet romance. I would definitely recommend this book to people who like faerie stories where they are a bit more devious but still want a romance. I really liked the main two characters of Rook and Isobel. I did want a bit more of Isobel’s family because they seemed very interesting but I understand why that wasn’t a major part and it certainly didn’t take away from the overall story. I almost wanted a few more romantic scenes because those scenes were so well written and I absolutely adored the dynamic of their relationship. Room was sort of petulant at first but I really liked the way he treated Isobel and the trust she was able to put in him because of that. I frequently dislike the romantic subplot of fantasy stories and wish for them to take a smaller role but I loved the way the relationship was really incorporated into the larger plot. I also loved the way crafting and the different talents of the human characters actually served a larger purpose in this world and because of that were seen as increasingly valuable. Instead of painting just being Isobels career, it can actually be a tool and defense for her. I loved that crafts were things that faeries valued because it was something they could not do. A lot of fantasy stories present the mythical creatures as all powerful so it was nice to see a story that presents clear and creepy negative characters in the all powerful faeries, even though one is involved in the romance. The author does not shy away from creating true flaws and drawbacks in being a faerie to show that becoming one will not give you new amazing powers but can actually take things away from you. ( )

"I'd always scoffed at stories in which maidens pine for their absent suitors, boys they've hardly known a week and have no business falling for. Didn't they realize their lives were worth more than the dubious affection of one silly young man? That there were things to do in a world that didn't revolve solely around their heartbreak?

Then it happens to you, and you understand you aren't any different from those girls after all."


This book was cute. The idea that Fae rely on humans for and made goods (clothing, paintings, books etc.) added an interest twist to the typical fairy books I've been reading.

Rook and Isobel are nice (and they make a cute couple), but my favorite characters were March and May I want half-feral goat-child (kid) siblings (I'm not even sorry). ( )

***AFTER READING***
It has been a long time since I've closed a book, sighed and smiled.

This story reminds me of the fairytales I used to read.

It's not... Ugh how do I say this, it is not a 'loud' story. It is a story that you will have to work for to imagine all the great and beautiful things. The descriptions are beautiful but if you're not used to letting your imagination just go wild, it can be lacking. Also I do have read some of them before, but I did not mind them.

This is a very much feel good book. When you want something uncomplicated and something far (why do this autocorrect?) Fae, yup I would recommend this.

***AFTER READING REVIEWS***
I haven't read a court of mist or fury (is that the title?) nor have any desire to do so. It's doesn't seem like I would enjoy that. So I don't know what that will tell you about the enjoyment of this book if you have read that one first.


***BEFORE READING***

I've no memory how this book came into my possession. I opened the door yesterday and there was a package. Apparently I even pre-ordered this... which I can vaguely remember but more like 'SOMEBODY SAID THIS WAS GOOD PUT IT ON YOUR WISLIST' Wich somehow translated to buying it...

I don't know what's it about. I think it totally was a cover buy because SO PRETTY! RAVENS (are they though? Because we have crows who look like that). I haven't read the blurb because I like knowing that Past-Me thought it was cool but Present-Me has no idea. Let's see if Future-Me also thinks that it was the bestest decision evah. ( )

I think I would give this a 3.5. It was good. I enjoyed it. It didn't blow me away though. Having fairly recently finished reading the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and loving that, I didn't feel that this ranked as high as that. ( )
