Daughter of the Forest introduces us to the couple whose future offspring feature in subsequent novels. If those are not what you like, and fairy-tales are not your thing, maybe give this one a try when there is nothing else around to read The prophecies of long ago have foretold a way to preve Child of the Prophecy is the thrilling conclusion to Juliet Marillier’s award-winning Sevenwaters Trilogy.

I purchased Child of the Prophecy at my own expense at audible. While this may indicate the presence prophefy evil, what it really indicates is a character who is confused and afraid.

Fianne, who has known little of love in her life and has seen its destructive hand in her family, will now discover the true power, both of family and, most importantly, of love. No I love you’s or even “I was wrong and I’m sorry I treated you so badly. What to say about this marvelous book? She has two children, a boy and a girl. I could definitely see other people loving chiild and five-starring it.


Child of the Prophecy

May 30, Lata rated it really liked it Shelves: I have very mixed feelings about this book. After shrouding this evil sorceress for two novels and building up her legend, actually meeting the woman was a disappointing shock. This is such a hard review to write because I loved this book so much.

Marillier ponders the value and purpose of storytelling in oc life, but her books are not self-reflexive meditations on narration as a device, per se. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that this is perhaps the most subtle of Marillier’s romances, but one of the most beautiful nevertheless.

Raised in an isolated cove, Fainne has been prophefy to live at Sevenwaters and burdened with a terrible task. Although I don’t parade as a hopeless romantic, the truth it, the sheer longing and uncertainty and love and affection between these two had me shaking with emotion near the end of the novel, despite the lack of emphasis it was given in the book. More about Juliet Marillier.

Child of the Prophecy – Wikipedia

She is the shy child of a reclusive sorcerer, and her way is hard, for her father is the son of the wicked sorceress Oonagh, who has emerged from the shadows and seeks to destroy all that Sevenwaters has striven for. Fainne is the daughter of Niamh and Ciaran, and is a dangerous combination of four races. For many, this original concluding foray into Sevenwaters was a disappointment, sadly lacking in comparison to the beauty that was Daughter of the Forest and the epic that was Son of the Shadows.

Without a doubt, Fianne’s growth as a character is the best this series has delivered so far, and likely will be for her circumstances lend themselves to so much room for improvement.

This third book in the Sevenwaters series, while not my favourite of the first three, is nevertheless excellent. Although I loved revisiting the old characters from the previous novels, it was just missing something. The third book in the epic and compulsively readable Sevenwaters series Child of the Prophecy is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to the winner of the Aurealis Award Son of the Shadows and the international bestseller Daughter of the Forest.


Additionally, the death of a major character, both from Son of the Shadows and this novel, was dealt with very sloppily, in my opinion. But can Fainne turn her back on the people she has come to care for? I want to do it again right now. The sheer idiocy of this plan is never accounted for in the novel. Fainne is a sorcerer’s daughter growing up in Kerry. Also, the partial loss of the romantic element leaves a void, but our heroine’s internal struggle is quite emotional to make up for it to some extent, giving the author the opportunity to write equally beautiful.

More the shame, as the trope of coming to terms with oneself, growing to like oneself without glamour or magic is a trope that could have been very interesting if written with depth and skill and Ms Marillier surely has both. When I first read the Sevenwaters books I immediately bought every book she has written. The last third of the book had me completely glued to the pages, hardly breathing.

In the conclusion to the Seven Waters trilogy Fianne, finds herself the puppet of her grandmother, Oonagh in her plot to destroy the Fair Folk. What makes Child of the Prophecy a difficult novel to like is the fact that it is a difficult novel to enjoy.
