I was captivated by the cover of Rogerson’s debut, An Enchantment of Ravens, but was ultimately lukewarm on the book itself. Despite this, I perked up when I heard about the release of Sorcery of Thorns. Not only does Sorcery have a great cover as well, it sounded like my exact cup of tea where Enchantment did not -- who doesn’t love sword-weilding librarians, sentient grimoires, and sassy magicians? I’m so pleased to say that I really, really enjoyed Sorcery of Thorns and am so happy I gave her writing another chance.
I’ll be the first to admit it: I bought An Enchantment of Ravens because of its beautiful cover. I don’t think I’m the only one either -- I kept seeing people raving about the book’s cover rather than the story inside. This ended up being a strange one for me -- I initially really struggled to decide if I liked it or not.
