Child of the Prophecy – Wikipedia

Refresh and try again. Sevenwaters 3 Child of the Prophecy–Finished? Her stories are like a spiderweb: I do recommend reading especially this series. As her mother is dead, he invites her grandmother to stay. They had no crises of identity like Fainne, so we never really had the same experience of seeing them decide who they were, as we do with Fainne.

propnecy A prophecy tells of a way to preserve the old magic, and Lady Oonagh is willing to trick her granddaughter and torture her own son to break it. Every read and this was the fourth, I like this one better each time.

She is socially and emotionally impairedand these are two huge disadvantages, especially that bearing the blood of four races Fainne believes herself to be set apart from the ordinary people and destined to mariillier evil.

Child of the Prophecy

It didn’t feel real and i was disappointed with that because the relationships of the characters in the previous books were well written. But to me this makes her interesting: And the ending was perfect. Child of the Prophecy was often not an easy book to read. Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought it took a man, as well as a woman, to juilet a child.


Fainne becomes close friends with Dhild, one of the tinkers who returns every summer. He can no longer hear the heartbeat of the earth, his mother. You are already emotionally invested in the characters and then their appearances in subsequent novels is awesome because you can really see what propheecy characters did and how they grew after the last book.

Child of the Prophecy (Sevenwaters, #3) by Juliet Marillier

Whereas in both Daughter of the Forest and in Son of the Shadows the main characters were both strong and self-assured young women, in Child of the Prophecy Fainne is plagued with doubts about herself and her place in the world. She focuses on witches, gods, madillier magic and puts romance in as a side plot rather than letting it consume and bog down the entire story. I’m continuing to love this series and so happy that I still have three books to read!

So it would have been nice to have a differant main plot, but this book was excellent in tying up the Sevenwaters trilogy.


Her characters are realistic and she puts them through hell and back, making all of us go through their experiences propnecy we do not leave the story unaffected.

I can do morally ambiguous protagonists. Published June 16th by Tor Books first published August 1st Fainne is a sorcerer’s daughter growing up in Kerry. The last book in the trilogy is stronger than the second one, but neither lives up to the emotional depth of the first.

Oh this is a tough one. Jan 06, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: Despite Fianne’s inherent goodness Oonagh uses magic to poison her mind and twist her.

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. They were strong women who were able to grab fate in a chokehold, stare it down, and proceed to calmly walk down the path of their own destiny.

I liked Fainne not only because she is not pretty, 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.
