a strong entry in a magnificent saga

In the Sevenwaters and Glencarnagh that contain the forest where the Tuatha De Danann Fair Folks dwell, Chieftain Sean is excited and frightened as his wife Aisling carries what he prays is the HEIR TO SEVENWATERS and his beloved survivies as she is on the wrong side of age for childbearing. With his oldest daughter Muirrin the healer married to Evan the healer and his second offspring Deirdre about to marry Southern clan chieftain Illann, Sean depends on his third oldest daughter Deirdre¿s younger twin capable Clodagh to maintain the household and to to care for her mother.------------- Sean¿s twin sister, her chieftain husband and their son Johnny, the current heir to Sevenwaters, attend Dierdre¿s wedding. At the gala Clodagh meets Johnny¿s personal guardsand she takes a dislike for the uncouth Cathal. Soon after the vows are exchanged, Aisling gives birth to the new heir but the Fair Folk abduct the newborn and replace him with a changeling. Clodagh and Cathal team up to try to save her brother by entering the insane to humans Otherworld where Prince Mac Dara has begun a dangerous ploy.--------------- The fourth Sevenwaters romantic fantasy (see DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST, SON OF SHADOWS and CHILD OF PROPHECY) is a strong entry in a magnificent saga. Juliet Marillier once again shows her skill in writing an exciting ¿border¿ thriller that enable readers to believe in the Tuatha De Danann mostly because of how the humans behave towards the Fair Folk. Sub-genre fans will want to accompany the heroic duo as they enter hostile territory on a quest that challenges their lives and minds as their senses cannot be trusted with a different perception than on their side of the thin separating veil.--------- Harriet Klausner

Good. But not fantasic. Usually after one of the sevenwaters books I feel as though I know the characters front to back.I feel there pains, and there happiness with them. That was not true in this story. Instead the characters seemed distant, and the story line lacked the emotional charge that was present in the other books. Dispite this, I enjoyed the heir to sevenwaters. Juliet Marillier is a great writer, and I would recommend this series to anyone.

    Lover of the Sevenwaters Series

    Juliet Marillier has a gift for painting a picture of folklore, fantasy, and magic. I wasn't a fan of fantasy fiction until I read her. Heir to Sevenwaters was a good story. Not my favorite by Marillier, but not bad either. Clodagh, daughter of Chieftain Sean of Sevenwaters, leaves the protection of her home to journey into the realm of the Fairfolk to retrieve her newborn baby, the true male heir to the Sevenwaters throne. The story starts off slow, picks up when the baby is abducted, then slows again. But the ending is filled with twists, turns, surprises, and does not disappoint. I recommend the previous 3 novels to bring one up to date if you haven't read them all ready. My favorites are Daughter of the Forest, #1, and Child of the Prophecy, #3.
