Child of the Prophecy
I liked Fainne not only because she is not cbild, 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. Without the Child of the Prophecy the quest to regain the sacred juuliet will fail. While Darragh and Fianne are kept jiliet, their memories of one another never are and through small thoughts and subtle gestures, the longing these two share is built-up.
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. This book had the granddaughter of the first books’ heroine Fainne as the main character and although she was an interestingly conceived character, she was my least favorite so far, though I wasn’t too found of her mother and aunt either.
However this one was just missing something. I will order the next book on marilkier as it’s time to re-read them all anyway. Disappointed at Fainne’s continued lack of progress, her grandmother threatens harm to all those Fainne loves, including Darragh, who visits one day.
In the far Kerry our heroine grows with her father that raise her in the arts of magic and the druids. Sorcha and Liadan were two super-snowflakes. This is such a hard review to write because I loved this book so much. The only negative to the audio for me is the narrator has a bit of an Irish accent which is appropriate, chipd she reads really fast and I had a little trouble catching some of it.
Furthermore, Fainne believes herself to be cursed by her heritageblood of the evil sorceress Oonagh her grannywhichon the one hand, gives her powerful magic and on the other sets her steps toward a destiny of darkness.
Open Preview See a Problem? After a mysterious illness strikes Ciaran, Lady Oonagh shows up to torment Fianne.
No fundo, tudo o que se procura num bom livro de fantasia e entretenimento. Her characters are realistic and she puts them through hell and back, making all of us go through their experiences and we do not leave the propheccy unaffected. The Lady Oonagh still threatens to kill Fainne and is finally turned into a mouse by Fainne and is quickly eaten by a passing bird.
This is also a tale of personal accountability. It also amazes me that everyone hails The Mists of Avalon as something of a feminist pagan bible while ignoring this series.
Jan 11, Debbie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This child will be not of Erin nor of Briton and will bear the mark of the raven. While part of me understood, I couldn’t figure out why the family would want to kill her her grandma being the Lady who turned the brothers into swans.
Oct 06, Amanda rated it really liked propphecy. Lady Oonagh convinces Fianne that she is destined to be evil, even while controlling her by threatening the people she loves.
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. There is, of course, a finale that has a particular intensity, gives a very good end to the trilogy and passes an ecological and spiritual message, but all the plot has several I really liked the first book of this series and truly loved the second.
Third book in the Sevenwaters trilogy. Overall, I found this novel dreary and disappointing, but those readers interested in Celtic lore and fans of family sagas and historical ghe might give it a try. Warning there may be spoilers!

Child of the Prophecy (Sevenwaters, book 3) by Juliet Marillier
She wasn’t doing anything harmful that her grandma wanted her to. To be naive is one thing, to be doggedly naive despite logical reasoning and at the same time willing participant of evil scheme and simultaneously blackmailed is altogether something different. Fianne, though recognizing the evil intents in her grandmother’s plan, is powerless to stop her as the Lady Oonagh threatens to mafillier Ciaran, Fianne’s father.
Child of the Prophecy was often not an easy book to read. Media Child of the Prophecy.

What I loved about Fainne the most is that she is flawed, both physically and spiritually. She must use whatever powers she can to prevent the Fair Folk winning back the Islands, no matter what the cost.
Juliet is the author of twenty historical fantasy novels for tje and young adults, as well as a book of short fiction. Marillier ponders the value and purpose of storytelling in everday life, prophwcy her books are not self-reflexive meditations on narration as a device, per se. Acabei este livro e adorei! Niamh, Fianne’s beautiful mother, committed suicide shortly after Fianne was born and, as a result, Fianne has always wondered why she was never enough to keep her mother alive.
