Child of the Prophecy: The Sevenwaters Trilogy vol 3by Juliet Marillier
Synopses & Reviews
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?
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.
