Child of the Prophecy: Son of the Shadows: Daughter of the Forest: Twixt Firelight and Water: Clodagh, the third daughter of the lord of Sevenwaters, is the practical one who keeps things running while her aging mother awaits the birth of a male heir.
At her sister’s wedding, she meets rude, closed-off Cathal, one of her cousin Johnny’s personal guards. Shortly after, when the Fair Folk replace the newborn heir with a changeling creature, Clodagh and Cathal put their lives and sanity on the line to rescue the child. Marillier’s gripping tale of adventure and enduring love bobbles slightly at the start, mostly due to Clodagh’s modern attitude and cadence, but slides quickly and assuredly into a grand tale of ancient Erin.
She graduated from the University of Otago with degrees in languages and music, and has had a varied career that includes teaching and performing music as well as working in government agencies. Juliet now lives in a hundred-year-old cottage near the river in Perth, Western Australia, where she writes full-time. She is a member of the druid order OBOD. Juliet shares her home with two dogs and a cat. Juliet’s historical fantasy novels are published internationally and have won a number of awards.

I’ve long loved the Sevenwaters Trilogy and was SO excited to revisit those beloved characters – and this book was I don’t know if a new editor worked on this book or if there was some great event in the author’s life to cause her voice to change so dramatically, but there is none of the original magic in this book.
The plot line is interesting enough, but the telling is meandering and inconsistent. There are spelling and word choice errors that jar the reader out of the story at some rather inopportune moments if I ever hear the word “uncanny” again, it’ll be too soon. I will still read the next two, because I really do want to know what happens next, but maybe I’ll search first for summaries or spoilers to see if I can possibly just know the story without having to go through the agony of reading more of such poorly written drivel.
After three days of some pretty hardcore reading, I finished the fourth installment of the Sevenwaters series. It felt really good to return to a story and characters that has been so familiar to me ever since I read Daughter of the Forest nearly four years aevenwaters. I really enjoy the way that JM touches on characters from each generation, showing how time changes things.
Out of the books I’ve read so far, this and Daughter of the Forest are my favorites. Son of the Shadows started out great, but for me lost a lot of it’s steam as it chugged along. I had a difficult time getting through Child of the Prophecy, intriguing and dark as it was, because of the abundance of exposition and long-winded descriptions. The romance in Daughter of the Forest is very subtle and sweet and felt like a realistic, coming of age type thing.
I sort of felt the same with the romance in Heir to Sevenwaters, even though I wish there had been more buildup to it. The thing I did really like about Clodagh and her love interest, is that they are with each other for the majority of the book and their relationship is much more about acts of selfless love than a burning physical desire, which unfortunately dominated Son of the Shadows. The plot was very well-paced, the characters well rounded, and the twists and turns surprising. Becan, the odd baby Clodagh must take to the Otherworld in order to retrieve her new baby brother, became one of my favorite characters.
The strength of Clodagh’s love for Becan was very well expressed, to the point where I was able to feel her tenderness and devotion to him in my own heart. The new villain, Mac Dara, is one evil dude. JM has a knack for creating villains that are so appropriately nasty and worthy of utmost hatred.
Heir to Sevenwaters : Juliet Marillier :
I would definitely recommend reading this book! I was sad to finish it, not quite ready to leave that world. It was so hard to put down, though. I literally forced myself to stay up reading late into the night, before I collapsed with exhaustion. I could say a lot more about this book, but I won’t because it’s rather late and I’m at the point of collapsing from exhaustion, as I mentioned above.
This is, so far, my favorite book of the Sevenwaters series. It pulls ahead only slightly of the first book, Daughter of the Forest, mxrillier of the richly woven trials and tribulations of venturing into the Otherworld of the Tautha De Dannan. This series weaves all the elements of historical fantasy that make it my favorite genere and I am fully invested in the generational characters, their heroics, and love that make up the family of Sevenwaters.
After the rather sometimes trudging third book with it’s disjointed climax, Marillker to Sevenwaters was refreshing, engaging and enchanted. Although Irish lore is mixed with all the books so far, in this book it is clutch in solving the riddles of the Underworld and to it’s current ruler, Mac Dara. The lore is a fantastic accompaniment with the strong and unwavering underlining theme that love really does, so far, conquer all.
One person found this helpful. But author Juliet Marillier created such an evocative landscape with such interesting characters that readers were clamoring for more. Marillier wrote this volume, about hei adventures of Clodagh, the third daughter of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters and his wife Aisling. Clodagh sees herself as a boring, ordinary young woman. But of course, she isn’t ordinary at all. When her baby brother Finbar is taken, and a changeling put in its place, Clodagh meets the challenge of bringing her brother back from the Otherworld.
Along the way, she meets a soul-mate in the form of Cathal, a prickly young man, given to sarcasm and sudden changes in mood. Derisive about the Fair Folk and other supernatural beings, he seems to be the last person who could help Clodagh in her quest to get her brother back.
But all is not as it seems. Whereas Sorcha and Liadan of the first two books seem almost superhuman in their personalities and achievements, Fainne and Clodagh seem more like real people, and therefore more endearing to the reader. In Clodagh, the heroine who is so good at running a household, readers are sure to find a protagonist they will love. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I love all of these books, this one of my favorites though.
So much so that I am writing this. I love how in depth she covered the Otherworld. All of her tales show immense strength of the hero’s and heroines, and this one is wonderful.
At first I didn’t like the practical view point, after the first chapter though, I was hooked. Looking mxrillier to the next! See all reviews.
