Child of the Prophecy product reviews

The outstanding conclusion to the award-winning Son of the Shadows and the international bestseller, Daughter of the Forest.

Raised in an isolated cove in Kerry, the young sorceress Fainne has been sent to live at Sevenwaters and burdened with a terrible task. She must use whatever powers she can to prevent the Fair Folk winning back the Islands, no matter what the cost. Even if it means denying herself the one she loves.

But can Fainne turn her back on the family for whom she has come to care? And, more importantly, can she bring herself to rid the world of the chosen one... the child of the prophecy?

This was the last in a trilogy about the family who live at Sevenwaters...
And much as I hate to say it, I felt this was the weakest of the three books.

In saying that, I did thoroughly enjoy it! Juliet Marillier has an enchanting way of writing, and has obviously researched her works very well, as the mythology that is mixed into this story reads to be very true to what I know of the Irish/Celtic myths and legends of the time.

I lamented the loss of some of the core characters from the first two books - but since it is a generational gap between each story, it's not surprising that members of the core family were lost to the ravages of time...

This part of the trilogy wasn't focused as strongly (at least on the surface) on Sevenwaters, and I had a little difficulty wrapping my head around the change of settings for a while, however, all that was written did eventually lead back to Sevenwaters and the key themes that had worked through the whole trilogy - it just took a while to see some of those treads weaving themselves back together.

Overall, a solid, still an enjoyable read.

Product reviews for listing 3433: A Perfect Blood
Written by Kim Harrison

Product image for A Perfect BloodRitually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realises a horrifying truth - others want to create their own demons and to do so, they need her blood.

She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge.
