I liked Fainne not only because she is not pretty, but also because she is a walking well, limping proof that having magic doesn’t make you smart or sociable or courageous or all three indeed. Niamh, Fianne’s beautiful mother, committed suicide shortly after Fianne was born and, as a result, Fianne has always wondered why she prpphecy never enough to prophcey her mother alive.

I didn’t feel the emotion at the end of the book with their relationship.

Child of the Prophecy – Wikipedia

Darragh gives up the travelling life and accepts a job taking care of horses. I just hope they are half as good. When I first read the Sevenwaters books I immediately bought every book she has written. Her stories tge like a spiderweb: Thr becomes close friends with Darragh, one of the tinkers who returns every summer. Darragh forces his way into the band of warriors by showing his prowess as a swimmer.

The last third of the book had me completely glued to the pages, hardly breathing.

Johnny’s men believe him dead but go on with the attack under Bran’s leadership. It was just throw Fianne under the bus, even though her situation was more or less a direct cause of the families earlier deceit. CotP is most d I think this book was at least as good as Daughter of the Forestalthough in a somewhat different way. Thus, Fianne and Darragh are often apart for most of the novel. Fainne’s character was great, conflicted but perceptive and somewhat believable.

Thus, to see the character killed off in a quick and hurried fashion, mostly as a matter of convenience, was confusing, to say the least.

To me this spoke straight to my deep-seeded fear that us humans, with our insatiable need for immediate gratification and just the basic instinct of surviving right now and not thinking about the future, are slowly destroying what we have been so freely gifted from Nature and G-d But Fainne was just not engaging enough chlid waste the extra hours.

But I may give it another few years! I use the word “craft” specifically, because her writing reminds me less of a splashy Jackson Pollack painting and more of a Hudson River landscape. Fianne has been living an isolated life with her father, learning her craft, with her only source of friendship coming from Darragh, the tinker boy whose family summers in her town.

Reading this book made me realize how perfect the protagonists of the previous Sevenwaters books were.

In the far Kerry our heroine grows with her father that raise her in the arts of magic and the druids.

A new generation of the family is shown in Fainne, Niamh’s daughter, who must infiltrate her Sevenwaters’ family, who are strangers to her, as ordered by her grandmother Lady Oonagh.

The only negative to the audio for me is the narrator has a bit of an Irish accent which is appropriate, but she reads really fast and I had a little trouble catching some of it. Third book in the Sevenwaters trilogy. He cannot smell the change in the air; he cannot see what lies beyond the veil of shadows. Each book has a unique story, and each affected me at a level that few books have touched before. Sorcha and Liadan, our past heroines, are women who have grown loved and sheltered in the woodlands of Sevenwaters.


Child of the Prophecy

Fianne, however, has grown up secluded near the ocean with only her father. I’m continuing to love this series and marillie happy that I still have three books to read! Fianne is not the perfect heroine Sevenwaters usually gives us. In some ways, this novel didn’t carry forth the same level of well-rounded excellency as Marillier’s novels always do, with a few points shoddily disregarded or merely disappointing, but ultimately, one cannot deny that Child of the Prophecy is an excellent conclusion to this original trilogy.

Juliet’s novels and short stories have won many awards. Whereas in both Daughter of the Forest and in Son prophscy the Shadows the main characters were both strong and self-assured young women, in Child of the Prophecy Fainne is plagued with doubts about herself and her hhe in the world.

This novel is about family, friendship, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, but above all this story is about Hope and Redemption.

I first read these books as a teenager and they resonated with me such that I read them all many times. Her lifelong interest in history, folklore and mythology has had a major influence on her writing. For me, this is the best conclusion that this series could have had.
