Raised in the ways of magic, Fainne plans to become a solitary sorcerer like her father, but fate intervenes in the form of her grandmother, Oonagh, a sorceress with a penchant for cruelty and a desire to put an end to everything the Sevenwaters folks stand for.

While Maeve is slowly recovering, Fainne and the other young girl cousins are invited to visit Eamonn at Glencarnagh, where Eamonn shows great interest in her. The only reason I’m rating this a 2.

Overall, I found this novel dreary and disappointing, but those readers interested in Celtic lore and fans of family sagas and historical romance might give it a try. Fainne is, in my opinion, probably the most believable of the characters in the three books. I rarely cry for a couple but this two made me shed tears like never before but lets start with the beginning!

Although I was not comfortable with some of the decisions she was forced to make at the hand of her grandmother, I recognized their worth in her growth as a human and, ultimately, appreciate their value. He …more Darragh got saved because the forest people didn’t let him crash onto the rocks. I did not think of this after my first reading.

I can pick up any book in this series any time and love reading it. I want to do it again right now. Now, however, entrusted with the Lady Oonagh’s deadly task, Fianne sends Darragh away, fearful that her grandmother may threaten to harm him next.


I first read these books as a teenager and they resonated with me such that I read them all many times. So despite my objections, I can say that the book leaves me content enough to put the rate you see. It made me lose a lot of respect for not only Eamonn but also Fainne, which is a bit unfair I admit, considering how manipulated she was by a grandmother who did exactly the same thing.

Fainne has grown up on her grandmother’s julliet and her father’s pain, and in relative isolation far from Sevenwaters. Darragh gives up the travelling life and accepts a job taking care of horses.

Marillier’s strong voice chuld rolling, lucid prose seem appropriate for a 10th-century Irish tale, and her command of a fantasy story’s elements make this an julliet conclusion to a fine trilogy.

Child of the Prophecy

Fainne is manipulated by her grandmother to bring the whole family down. The Lady Oonagh still threatens to kill Fainne and is finally turned into a mouse by Fainne and is quickly eaten by a passing bird.

It had me fearing, grieving and hoping all in jiliet. I really liked the first book of this series and truly loved the second. So the question that concerns us for the longest time of reading is which path she will choose, the dark road of selfishness, of the pursuit of more and more power, of indifference to people or that of light, love, altruism and offering. After a mysterious illness strikes Ciaran, Lady Oonagh shows up to torment Fianne.

Even if it means denying herself the one she loves. But Fainne’s growth and prohpecy from beginning to end was a journey that I found totally worth it. Raised in solitude by her distant father, haunted by the death of her mother, and manipulated by her evil sorceress grandmother, julie wonder Fainne is so unsure of herself.

As you can see I am bit confused In the final book in her Sevenwaters Trilogy, Australian Marillier gathers the threads from the first two Daughter of the Forest and Son of the Shadows and weaves them together into a rich tapestry of love and loss, thw loyalty childd personal sacrifice. Paperbackpages. I wound up devouring this over a brief weekend in NYC, unable to set it down on the subway, train, or bus. How will she have descendants she asks?

When she is finally sent ;rophecy Sevenwaters, Fianne must find her place in both her mothers family and in the prophecy of the old ones, accepting both her heritage and her powers, to take her place in the prophecy.

Child of the Prophecy (Sevenwaters, #3) by Juliet Marillier

Oh this is a tough one. I hate it when authors rely on plot devises that suddenly go away if said MC’s knew the secret.

All in all, 3 stars. Thus, to see the character killed off in a quick and hurried fashion, mostly as a matter of convenience, was confusing, to tge the least.

But Fainne’ peaceful life is turn upside down when her grandmother makes an appearance at her door determined to take revenge against the Sevenwaters. She combines tragedy and desperation with hope and love – romantic and familial love, love of the forest or This is such ju,iet hard review to write because I loved this book so much.

Almost to the degree of Sorcha. Child of the Prophecy was not either.
