Sorcha saved her brothers from the curse of a wicked sorceress, despite the toll it took on her; Liadan had the courage although balls might be a better word to make her own path in life and break the pattern set by the Fair Folk, and essentially was the reason Child of the Prophecy took place; and Fainne both initially aided her wicked grandmother and helped destroy her– she found the strength to right the wrongs of both her ancestor and herself.

The book stands out to me because of the beautiful, even writing and because of the likability of its two main characters. I also like that she “casually” includes several hints to the continuation of the series. So much so that I am writing this.

You see this dive in Irish mythology is done in such a good way that it reveals that it is a product of study rather than merely the result of sevenwxters superficial approach to the subject. Nevertheless, as the story progresses, we begin to peel back the layers Cathal so carefully hides under and discover the heart of the man underneath. Yet another breathtaking narrative – Juliet knows helr to keep us clinging to the stories that she so skillfully imagines and writes.

Once I read a story, I tend to remember them. I can’t wait to see where the next one takes it all. I would recommend this to diehard fans of Sevenwaters, but I myself will not be reading it again.
