Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Returning to the land of the Sevenwaters trilogy (Daughter of the Forest, etc.), Marillier deftly weaves a fey story of human interaction with the Fair Folk. Clodagh, the third daughter of the lord of Sevenwaters, is the practical one who keeps things running while her aging mother awaits the birth of a male heir. At her sister's wedding, she meets rude, closed-off Cathal, one of her cousin Johnny's personal guards. Shortly after, when the Fair Folk replace the newborn heir with a changeling creature, Clodagh and Cathal put their lives and sanity on the line to rescue the child. Marillier's gripping tale of adventure and enduring love bobbles slightly at the start, mostly due to Clodagh's modern attitude and cadence, but slides quickly and assuredly into a grand tale of ancient Erin. (Nov.)

VOYA - Rachelle Bilz
Marillier again invites readers into the entrancing world of Sevenwaters, a place where Celtic mythology, realistic characters, and exhilarating plot lines are woven together to mesmerizing effect. An addition to the Sevenwaters Trilogy, this book is narrated by teenaged Clodagh, granddaughter of Sorcha, daughter of Sean, Lord of Sevenwaters. The story's beginning finds Clodagh preoccupied with the preparations for her twin sister's wedding and the impending birth of her mother's seventh child. When her cousin Johnny arrives for the wedding with guards Aidan and Cathal, Clodagh struggles with her feelings for the young men. After the wedding, baby Finbar is born and soon stolen while Cathal distracts Clodagh and a bizarre changeling is left in Finbar's place. Clodagh, consumed with guilt, decides to visit the Otherworld, land of the Fair Folk, to exchange the changeling for her brother. Long connected to both Fair Folk and druids through ancestry, Clodagh believes herself strong enough to undertake this quest. Seeking a portal to the Otherworld, Clodagh is joined by Cathal. Grudging partners, they aid each other and form a tenuous bond. Once in the land of Fair Folk, the pair battle malevolent magic, meet strange allies, and fall in love. Cathal's secret past and unusual lineage is revealed, and Clodagh learns to be a hero. A heady blend of adventure, romance, and magic, this book is sure to appeal to high school and adult fantasy fans. Although knowledge of the Sevenwaters Trilogy would deepen a reader's appreciation for the tale, this book ably stands alone. Reviewer: Rachelle Bilz
Library Journal

As Chieftain of Sevenwaters, Lord Sean cares for one of the last havens of the ancient Fair Folk. When his wife, Lady Aisling, gives birth to a son and heir, their joy soon turns to grief when the child disappears and a grotesque changeling is left in his place. Daughter Clodagh, who had been the baby's caretaker during Aisling's recovery from a difficult labor, seeks to reclaim her brother by traveling deep into the Otherworld accompanied by a warrior who may hold the key to their success. The Australian author of the Celtic inspired "Sevenwaters Trilogy" and "Bridei Chronicles" brings to life a favorite theme of classic storytelling: the plight of the changeling child. Vividly detailed with strong characters and a firm grounding in Celtic myth, Marillier's latest saga of a young woman's quest belongs in most libraries.

    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

    It was okay...

    I have always been a fan of the sevenwaters trilogy, have read them several times, when I picked up this book I expected the same feeling. It was a good book, but it missed the mark that the others leave when I finish them, the desire to instantly pick them up again. I was a little disappointed in the fast finish up and several of the character developments.

    I recommend it BUT....

    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.

    Juillet keeps true to her formula. In her fourth book, she still shares an exciting story with us that includes finding love. If youre on book four, then youre already in love with Sevenwaters anyway! Stop reading reviews and read the book! You'll love it!

    I love this book, I love all her books but tend to find myself h

    I love this book, I love all her books but tend to find myself having to put them down for a bit and come back. That is not at all the cast with Heir, I keep reading until my dog whines enough to make me realize we are an hour behind on her walk :) I love Clodagh and Cathal's love story. I think it has a perfect sweetness to it that  the other books in the Sevenwater's series are missing. I wish it were longer and wished they had a couple sequels of just them. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    This was probably my favorite of the series so far!

    This book had a great story of adventure, love within family and a growing love between unlikely lead characters, and the wonderful old folk tales & mystic world lore all wrapped up in a book i couldnt put down! I would read the first 3 in the series before this one. The tale of the Sevenwaters family does build from one book to the next. This author does a great job of quickly getting me hooked right into the story. Shes such a good story teller, and i love 1st person books! And this series has been in the voice of a different character for each book. The women are powerful, yet real and have such love. No whining feel sorry for themself love story here!

    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.

    Juliet Marillier Does It Again!

    A truly wonderful read again from Juliet Marillier. Heir to Sevenwaters falls right into place in the Sevenwaters Series. It has the same characters that we all know and love from the first three books with a whole new generation of Sevenwaters children, drama, love and adventure. A must read. Great for a rainy day, a sunny day, or any other day if you are looking for great adventure and a book that is hard to put down.

    heir to sevenwaters

    Picking up this last (or most recent) book in Juliet Marillier's fantastic Sevenwaters series, I was totally geared up for a much desired in-depth look at Laiden and Bran's son (from Son of the Shadows), Johnny. As I started reading and found out, no this is his cousin's Clodagh story, I sorta scratched my head and felt a little cheated. Boy howdy, was I ever wrong about being disappointed. (Of course) Clodagh's story was sublime, beautiful and probably my favorite so far. I should simply be grateful for any story Marillier tells and stop having expectations becuase frankly, any story she writes comes out magic.

    In the midst of her six sisters, Clodagh is happy to be known as the 'domestic' one, usually to be found helping her mother organize and run the Sevenwaters household. So it's natural that she fills this role as her mother becomes ill with an unexpected pregnancy late in life. Her mother, Aisling, is convinced she carries the long awaited male heir she has previously failed to deliver. Clodagh and her family are anxious for their mother's health but when the baby is born and is taken suddenly from their home while Clodagh was keeping watch, suspicion and hurt abound as everyone is devastated by his disappearance. Clodagh alone is convinced that the baby was not stolen by a rival clansmen for political gain but by the Fair Folk and so she sets off on a perilous journey to bring him back. Not alone, Clodagh is accompanied by the prickly Cathal, one of Johnny's painted men, who she is stumped as to why he would 1) not only believe her tale but 2) be willing to help her accomplish her goal as he has been nothing but rude to her. Cathal has his own secrets (more than your average painted man's) and it quickly becomes apparent to Clodagh that she can't succeed without his help.

    Clodagh and Cathal's story was exactly what I wanted even though I wasn't expecting it. Clodagh is resourceful, stubbornly loyal, and so compassionate I couldn't help but love her as she faced impossible challenges. At one point even her own family distrusts her and she never stops loving or trusting them even though their coldness has devastated her. After reading this unexpected book I find myself hoping Marillier has plans to revisit Sevenwaters again. In the near future, that is. Please hurry.

    Juliet Marillier is...

    ...a wonderful author. She tells a well-crafted fairytale with consistently strong female characters. Add to that a touch of romance and you've got a quick and enjoyable read. I own the whole series and will happily re-read it!

    A great addition to the Sevenwaters collection

    Where should I start... I loved reading these tales created by Juliet Marillier. From "Daughter Of The Forest" to "Son Of The Shadow" to "Child Of The Prophecy" and now "Heir To Sevenwaters". These tales all begin in the magical, mysterious & wonderful land called Sevenwaters. You'll go along on journeys with generation after generation of the family sworn to protect this land. Along the way you'll meet the many characters of Sevenwaters and be woven in to a world of love, family, friendship, struggles, battles & a little magic.

    Sevenwaters Capivates Once Again

    I have read all the books by this author, and this series never ceases to captivate me. I also read the first book three times. Out of the series, this latest book has the same magic, if not more so in some ways, than the first book. <BR/><BR/>If the author reads these reviews, I sincerely hope that she builds upon the new plots she laid out in this story. And thank you for continuing this series!
