The daughter of a forbidden romance, Fianne has been raised in isolation and trained in magic by her loving but remote druid-father, Ciaran, and her ruthless sorceress-grandmother, the Lady Oonagh.
They send Fianne to Sweetwaters to live among relatives who had no knowledge of her existence and who may have instigated the death of her mother, their sister Niamh. Fianne has pro;hecy to carry out her grandmother’s long-planned vengeance on the clan–and on the Old Ones, who are the source of Ireland’s mystic power.
Despite her mother’s death, Fianne is reluctant to harm her Sweetwaters kin. But if she lets them live, the Lady Oonagh will kill both her father and Darragh, the handsome young horse tamer who has captured Fianne’s heart. Child of the Prophecy works as a standalone novel, but readers will benefit by first reading its equally accomplished prequels, Daughter of the Forest and Son of the Shadows.
The saga of the guardians of the forest at Sevenwaters takes up julief story of Fainne, daughter of the former Druid Ciaran and the lost Niamh. Raised in the ways of magic, Fainne plans to become a solitary sorcerer like her father, but fate intervenes in the form of her grandmother, Oonagh, a sorceress with a penchant for cruelty and a julite to put an end to everything the Sevenwaters folks stand for. A prophecy tells of a propnecy to preserve the old magic, and Lady Oonagh is willing to trick her granddaughter and torture her own son to break it.
Though Fainne is forced to bow to her grandmother’s will, the love of her family and her own strong ethics help her remember her true nature, as she learns about herself, her powers of sorcery and the part maril,ier plays in a prophecy that has tested three generations of women.
Though the romance elements marillieg dominated The Son of the Shadows occasionally appear, this book centers on personal growth and filial marilllier it can be enjoyed as a read-alone book, but is better understood with the preceding titles. Marillier’s strong voice and rolling, lucid prose seem appropriate for a 10th-century Irish tale, and her command of a fantasy story’s elements make this an excellent conclusion to a fine trilogy.

I found the long length of the book really showed itself here. There julket times when I almost abandoned it. Some editing was definitely in order. Besides that, I found the main character, Fainne, was difficult to relate to.
However, the story itself held my attention and I was eager to find out what would happen next. Juliet Marillier’s novel’s tend to jjliet around in directions you don’t expect and can’t predict.
They mraillier different than other novels and have a unique voice. At times this works so beautifully and other times wanders aimlessly. I do love the way these tales weave magic, action, adventure and passion together in a wonderful way that captures the imagination. Some passages are so detailed and well described that you feel as though you are there. There was a long way to go to get to the conclusion of this trilogy and it ended in a mostly satisfying way.
One person found this helpful. The last book in the trilogy is stronger than the second one, but neither lives up to the emotional depth of the first. Sorcha by chilc is the most memorable heroine of the three.
The love story between Sorcha and Hugh was by far the best, as well.
Fainne is at least a more interesting, deeper character than the perfect Liadan. She makes some devastating mistakes, some of which can never be undone, or perhaps even forgiven. She doesn’t always make the best choices, and she has to live with the ones she does make. I did not like the love interest in this story at all. The way he followed her around like a puppy, he seemed less than a man to me. He hardly even had his own personality. I won’t spoil anything, but I felt his actions at the very end of the book were extremely out of character.
Nonetheless, in spite of these flaws, I still enjoyed the read very much, as I have all three of Marillier’s books I’ve read.
I do like this Author and her style of writing. It certainly keeps one interested and can’t help but to turn page after page. I enjoy being in a world of the past and also escaping reality and problem. It is like Meditation for me. I do recommend reading especially this series. The first book in this trilogy seemed slow at the prpphecy, but the story soon had me in its grip.
I loved the first book so much, I was worried the second would not stand up to my expectations, but ai loved it even more!
Surely the third would be good, but how could it be better? Fiction does not make me cry easily but by the end of the third book tears of sorry and then joy were streaming down my face. Also-I switched between reading and listening to the audio version and I highly recommend both but the audio was my favorite, it really brought out the feel of the story. Told from the point of view of Fainne, daughter of Niamh and Ciaran, it tells of a sad tale of a young girl whose love for her father is used as a weapon against her.
Fainne is a sorceress-in-training, taught by her father. But when she reaches her fourteenth year, he decides that she needs a woman to be there for her. As her mother is dead, he invites her grandmother to stay. Unfortunately, that grandmother is the Lady Oonagh, whom we first met in the first Sevenwaters Chronicle, the one who cast the spell turning the six brothers into swans.
Child of the Prophecy
Juliet Marillier is a gifted author who not only writes gorgeous prose but also can create well-thought-out plot-lines and tough, believable characters. In Fainne, we have a lonely young girl who is trying to do the right thing against enormous odds.
This is the 3rd book of the Sevenwaters chilx, and it is an outstanding book. Marillier, is nowadays, the most “gifted” epic writer. This book surprises you in everyway you can imagine, druids, wizards, seers, witches, all within the acceptable, no magic wands or flying brooms, this is a portrait of ancient Ireland and their ancient belives of Druidic lore. The main char is Fainne, Liadan’s niece,she is 3 in one,a withch, a shape shifter and a druid’s daughter. On the contary of what she’d been told, her family loves her,she struggles against herself, destroy, don’t destroy?!!
I have been waiting to get this book at a reasonable price and as soon as the paperback came out I snatched it up. The first two books in this series were amazing! This book came from a darker point of view. This book had less romance yet still written from a headstrong teenage girl’s point of view, so it echoed a lot of feelings that were in the two other books in this series.
This series seems to be all about Denying love until all hope is lost and the day is saved So it would have been nice to have a differant main plot, but this book was excellent in tying up marllier Sevenwaters trilogy.
