To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I think Marillier can do much better. I was sad to finish it, not quite ready to leave that world. The fourth book of the series is the most Celtic and seevenwaters darkest of all until now. It has advantages, surely, as she is impossible to be mistaken with another author. Although she is known as the daughter whose sole skill lies in her household duties, as Sevenwaters sinks into sevenwatets, both of a political and emotional nature, Clodagh manages to hold her own and stay strong for her family, remaining a constant rock of support for them.

When you start a story, do you have in mind whether it will be best for young adults or adult audiences, or does that develop as the book does? It is all the more strange when one contrasts the impaired sisterhoods with how expertly the Author mastered the brotherhood right from the start and was able to write the complexity of feelings as well as the strong, unwavering bonds between the six brothers in the first instalment of the series.

The chieftains of Sevenwaters have long been custodians of a vast and mysterious forest, one of the last refuges of the Tuatha De Danann, the Fair Folk of ancient story. The Tuatha De Danann are still equal parts otherworldly sevejwaters terrifying.

But in fact I slipped right back into it with no trouble, picking up the action a few years after the events of Child of the Prophecy.

The new villain, Mac Dara, is one evil dude. My primary focus is always on the characters and their relationships. And the baby, too It sort of dragged near the middle, but soon picked up. Clodagh is a strong geir with pronounced individual traits sevnwaters set her apart from the healers with supernatural abilities we have had before. I just thought that Marillier was above creating a character just for the sake of a love triangle.

But at times it just made the females in the story seem like chopped liver. Instead, I got half of a novel about her, and half of a novel about her fawning over Cathal. Accompanied on her quest by a warrior who may prove to be more than he seems, Clodagh will have her courage tested to breaking point.

For instance, if Cathal said something cryptic about his father and seemed conflicted while saying yo, Clodagh would think about all the possible reasons why Cathal might be conflicted, all the possible people his father could be, all the possible meanings of his cryptic speech, and all the possible ways it might involve her. Yet upon her return, she finds herself in the middle of a strange struggle, the heart of which lies in the Otherworld.
