Publisher Comments:

Magic is fading... and the ways of Man are driving the Old Ones to the West, beyond the ken of humankind. The ancient groves are being destroyed, and if nothing is done, Ireland will lose its essential mystic core.

The prophecies of long ago have foretold a way to prevent this horror, and it is the Sevenwaters clan that the Spirits of Eire look to for salvation. They are a family bound into the lifeblood of the land, and their promise to preserve the magic has been the cause of great joy to them... as well as great sorrow.

It is up to Fianne, daughter of Niamh, the lost sister of Sevenwaters, to solve the riddles of power. She is the shy child of a reclusive sorcerer, and her way is hard, for her father is the son of the wicked sorceress Oonagh, who has emerged from the shadows and seeks to destroy all that Sevenwaters has striven for. Oonagh will use her granddaughter Fianne most cruelly to accomplish her ends, and stops at nothing to see her will done.

Will Fianne be strong enough to battle this evil and save those she has come to love?

Synopsis:

The final book in Marillier's trilogy of the Sevenwaters clan--a family whose fortunes are bound into the lifeblood of Ireland--is set against the lush woods of ancient Ireland and culminates in an epic battle between good and evil.

I picked up this novel while i was perusing the local library for some summer reading. I was young at the time and didn't really read fantasy novels but once I started reading I couldn't stop!

The characters are really strong and you really feel for them especially the main one, Fainne. She is young at the beginning and you get to see her grow up and mature and that's nice. For this reason it may appeal more to girls than boys and probably young adults. However, I still think its a great read for everyone.

Juliet Marillier is a really good storyteller and her characters are very well crafted. After I read child of the prophecy, I went back and read the first two books in the trilogy, and now they're some of my favorite books. Every couple of years I pick them up to re-read and their just as fascinating as the first time due to Marillier's excellent writing.

I strongly recommend this book!!
