    One thought on “Child of the Prophecy”

    1. I think this book was at least as good as Daughter of the Forest, although in a somewhat different way DotF was, as I ve noted in that review, a tale of the strength of love for family, of good overcoming evil even when it is at great cost, and of love found along the way Child of the Prophecy is, I think, a book about learning to love oneself, that it doesn t matter how many people might love you because it is all lost if you don t have that inner core of strength and self love.CotP is most def [...]

    2. This is such a hard review to write because I loved this book so much There is something about Marillier s writing that is completely absorbing I ve only read her original Sevenwaters Trilogy so far, but each of those books has succeeded in captivating me with a full range of real emotion The characters are so real, and their trials so heartbreaking and rewarding that I can t turn away She combines tragedy and desperation with hope and love romantic and familial love, love of the forest or the s [...]

    3. There were patterns to everything, if you knew how to look My father taught me that The real skill lay in staying outside them, in not letting yourself be caught up in them Sevenwaters is a family saga telling the tales of the women from the Sevenwaters family The series started with the wild swans fairy tale retelling featuring the Daughter of the Forest, Sorcha and continued with Sorcha s daughter, Liadan in Son of the Shadows Child of the Prophecy tells the story of Fainne, daughter of Niamh [...]

    4. Ironically enough, I wound up loving Child of the Prophecy than its predecessor, Son of the Shadows 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 As someone who left the latter feeling than a little disappointed and was prepared to feel the same way from this installment, Child of the Prophecy proved to be a pleasant surprise A very pleasant surpr [...]

    5. 3 A buddy read with the good folks at FBR.This is not and easy review to write because I really enjoyed the first two books and very much wanted to love this one However, I have to admit I was let down Which is a shame, since I find Marillier s writing very enchanting and absorbing I am new to her as an author and I was pleased to discover an author who is obviously well versed in Celtic Folklore and has a beautiful sensibility, possessing a rare ability to involve the reader emotionally in ever [...]

    6. Reading this book made me realize how perfect the protagonists of the previous Sevenwaters books were Sorcha and Liadan were model women in their community and among their peers They were sure of their identities and the decisions they made They had the uncanny ability to see beyond the actions of their decisions and fully realize the consequences even before they were faced with the choices They were strong women who were able to grab fate in a chokehold, stare it down, and proceed to calmly wa [...]

    7. Este terceiro livro da Trilogia de Sevenwaters devia ter sido o coroar de gl ria da hist ria, contudo, na minha opini o ficou aqu m dos anteriores Nem as personagens tiveram o carisma a que est vamos habituados, nem o final foi o que esperava Impunha se o fechar do c rculo a resolu o de todas as quest es pendentes nos dois ltimos verdade que se resolveu a quest o das ilhas e eliminou se de vez a amea a de Lady Oonagh, no entanto, achei a bruxa pouco convincente os di logos com Fainne muito pobre [...]

    8. This conclusion of the Sevenwaters trilogy is a bit different from the other two It s still narrated by a young woman, Fainne, who is a member of the family of Sevenwaters However, it s a bit different in that Fainne s rather scandalous parentage scandalous even by today s standards , her rather withdrawn personality, and her very powerful magical talents make her an outsider and an object of mistrust to many of the characters we know and trust from the first two novels This sets up a suitably t [...]

    9. I don t think that Juliet Marillier is actually capable of writing a bad book This third book in the Sevenwaters series, while not my favourite of the first three, is nevertheless excellent.Marillier nicely ties up the various threads that have built up over the three generations that span the first three books in the series Whereas in both Daughter of the Forest and in Son of the Shadows the main characters were both strong and self assured young women, in Child of the Prophecy Fainne is plague [...]

    10. Beautiful writing, bringing all the threads of joy, grief, anger and love found in the Sevenwaters family from books 1 and 2 together to fulfil the prophecy needed to save the islands of Erin 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 Fainne has grown up on her grandmother s hate and her father s pain, and in relative isolation far from Sevenwaters Fainne must [...]

    11. Wow I already knew that Juliet Marillier has absolutely beautiful writing that creates a strong sense of place, but I still found myself in awe while reading this of how immersed I was into old Erin.This story follows Fianne, the daughter of Niamh of Sevenwaters and Ciaran, the son of Oonagh the sorceress who bespelled the family in the trilogy 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 [...]

    12. 2.5 to 3 starsBuddy read with the romantasy fans from FBR.I really liked the first book of this series and truly loved the second This one however was a big let down.The MC lacks a spine as well as sound moral values and makes you wonder than once How dumb can someone really be The plot is lacking, to say the least and some of the paths and decisions taken simply don t make sense There aren t any proper explanations given in the end and even though the Oonagh story thread is over and done with [...]

    13. I admit to not being entirely rational about the Sevenwaters Trilogy I first read these books as a teenager and they resonated with me such that I read them all many times While I m not sure I would give this book five stars if I came to it with fresh eyes today, I do so anyway because a an author who can inspire these kinds of feelings in me is doing something very well and b this book is certainly on par with the first two in the trilogy and does not deserve its lower rating While it s helpful [...]

    14. Spoilers Bah, this book was just irritating I skimmed through all the nonsense and repetition, which was basically the whole book and i kept waiting for something or anything unexpected and interesting to happen I was disappointed The ending scenes were badly written I wanted magic since the story was based on Fainne s powers but instead, the final battle was a fight of words Seriously These are 3 powerful sorcerer s and thats the best we get It was just not well done and it had so much potenti [...]

    15. What to say about this marvelous book This book was the one of all the books in this series that had the REAL magic in it, once, Fainne, the protagonist is a REAL sorceress.Fainne is a very complex character, but she is also amazingly simple about her values and about what she wants At first, she is introduced to us as a dark character, what makes us think that she will be the Villain of the story, but as the story unfolds we realise that she is the hero, a really strong, generous and unbelievab [...]

    16. 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 Despite Fianne s inherent goodness Oonagh uses magic to poison her mind and twist her She must find the strength to fight Oonagh s evil influence and end a war that has been waged for generations Another good instalment to the Seven Waters series and the end of the first trilogy I m not sure if I ll continue I mean is it worth walking away while I still l [...]

    17. Pode n o ser t o grandioso e entusiasmante como os anteriores, mas n o deixa igualmente de me encantar e de me tocar na alma 5

    18. 3.5 stars that I m rounding up because overall this series is fantastic This one was my least favorite of the first three and the only one where I had a lot of trouble with empathy for the MC but it s still a solid entry in the series and I will be happily moving on to the next book.

    19. 4.5 StarsI didn t love this one quite as much as the first two books it took me a long time to get into it, one aspect really creeped me out, and I guessed the ending , but I still really enjoyed it Now I have to decide whether I want to read the second trilogy

    20. Acabei este livro e adorei Senti me transportada, como nos 2 1 s livros, para outras eras e outras paisagens Um hist ria bem desenvolvida e que deixa vontade de saber mais.

    21. A great conclusion to the Sevenwaters trilogy Marillier builds tension not only within the book, but across a three book arc The woman is a master of her craft I use the word craft specifically, because her writing reminds me less of a splashy Jackson Pollack painting and of a Hudson River landscape A sort of back to basics, solid foundation feeling These books are not necessarily part of the contemporary literary tradition Marillier ponders the value and purpose of storytelling in everday life [...]

    22. Third book in the Sevenwaters trilogy.Unlike the heroines in the first two books, Sorcha and Liadan, Fianne is not perfect and completely self sacrificing While some other reviewers thought this detracted from the story, I found her a interesting and complex character Fianne is the daughter of Ciaran and Niamh, with a heritage that includes the strength and goodness of the Sevenwaters clan as well as the darkness of Lady Oonagh She was raised in solitude by her father after her mother s early d [...]

    23. I haven t read past this book in the Sevenwaters series or trilogy or whatever so only apply what I say to the original three These books seem to take place every generation This book s MC is Fianne, Niamh s daughter If you haven t read book two, Niamh is sent away in an effort to keep her away from her love because view spoiler he s her half uncle, conceived when the evil stepmother took over seven waters, and after she turned the brothers into swans hide spoiler Her new husband is terribly abu [...]

    24. Quem l os anteriores, repara de imediato que este tem um in cio lento Mas que tem de ser, de modo a mais tarde compreendermos o turbilh o de acontecimentos do fim.Mesmo assim, este livro uma obra excelente S uma grande autora consegue retratar e construir personagens t o carism ticas e realistas.Uma s rie das melhores que alguma vez li.

    25. 2.5 5I m repeating myself, but the writing s still beautiful and yet the book could be shorter This time around, though, the romantic plotline was weak, the Big Evil of the trilogy seemed at times almost caricaturish, and by the end of the book I was than ready for the overarching plot to wrap itself up because I was kind of over it I still plan to read the other three books, but I need a breather.

    26. Depois de ter lido os dois volumes anteriores durante o ano passado, foi com grande entusiasmo que peguei no terceiro volume desta fant stica hist ria sobre a fam lia de Sevenwaters N o novidade o meu apre o pela autora e pelas suas hist rias, por isso era dif cil eu n o gostar deste livro.N o sei se n o ser um dos livros mais belos que li da autora N o t o grandioso como o primeiro A Filha da Floresta , talvez porque h uma do ura e uma ingenuidade enormes nesse livro, mas gostei muito deste por [...]

    27. Actually a reread for me I love this series and Ms Marillier s work in general I loved this book except I really wanted to slap Fainne when she just won t trust those she loves.

    28. Child of the Prophecy is the third book in Juliet Marillier s Sevenwaters series Originally the series was intended as a trilogy I loved all 3 books, but this one is my favourite It s difficult to explain why exactly because it is the most painful of the three to read Perhaps the very things that make it difficult to read also make it the most endearing Fianne is very different from the other two protagonists, Sorcha of Daughter of the Forest and Liadan of Son of The Shadows Fianne is the daught [...]

    29. Terminei mesmo agora de ler A filha da profecia , e j estou cheia de saudades desta maravilhosa trilogia N o s das personagens, mas tamb m do seu ambiente m tico Todos os livros me encantaram N o houve um que eu achei mais fraco Apesar de muitos leitores dizerem que este ltimo n o prende tanto como os anteriores, eu achei que ele estava ao mesmo n vel Fainne a protagonista Ela filha de Ciar n e Niamah, e neta de Lady Oonag normal ela parecer mais fr gil do que a sua av e tia Pois ela n o nasceu [...]

    30. This book along with the previous two of the Sevenwaters trilogy really has taken me places It has been a strange, beautiful, romantic, and moving journey.In Child of the Prophecy , we see the world of Sevenwaters through the eyes of Fianne She s not as morally unshakable as Sorcha or Liadan Because she is not only a daughter of the forest but also the grandchild of the evil Oonagh Her uncertainties can get annoying or depressing, to an extent But that is what makes Fianne so interesting She s a [...]
