Overview

Son of the Shadows (Sevenwaters Series #2) by Juliet Marillier

Son of the Shadows continues the saga of beautiful Sorcha, the courageous young woman who risked all to save her family from wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures.

It is from her sacrifice that her brothers were brought home to Sevenwaters. But not all the brothers were able to escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and those who did were all more—and less—that they were before the change. It is left to Sorcha's daughter Liadan to take up the tale that the Sevenwaters clan is destined to fulfill. Beloved child, dutiful daughter, Liadan embarks on a journey that opens her eyes to the wonders of the world around her...and shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life.

She will need all of her courage to help her family, for there are forces far darker than anyone could have guessed and ancient powers conspiring to destroy this family's peace—and their world. And she will need the strength to stand up to those she loves best...for in the finding of her own true love, Liadan may doom them all...or be their salvation.

About the Author

Juliet Marillier was born in Dunedin, New Zealand, a town with strong Scottish roots. She currently lives in a rural area of Western Australia, sharing her house with a cat and a dog. A university graduate in music and languages, she has had a varied career that includes working for government agencies, opera singing, and raising four children. Juliet now writes full time. Her lifelong interest in myth, legend, folklore and traditional music is a strong influence on both style and theme in her writing. A passion for early British history, reflecting her Celtic ancestry, is evident in her choice of settings.

Juliet Marillier achieved international recognition in 1999 with the publication of her award-winning novel Daughter of the Forest. This is the first book of the Sevenwaters Trilogy, a historical fantasy set in Ireland and Britain in the ninth century, and is loosely based on the traditional fairy tale, The Six Swans. The second book in the series, Son of the Shadows, won the 2000 Aurealis Award for best fantasy novel. Child of the Prophecy completes this trilogy.

Juliet Marillier's second series is based on the first Viking voyage from Norway to Orkney, and weaves history and folklore into a saga of adventure, romance and magic. The series is made up of two novels, Wolfskin and Foxmask. Juliet is currently working on a new trilogy set in the north of Britain in the time of the Picts.

Juliet is a member of the druid order OBOD and of the Australian Greens Party, reflecting her commitment to environmental causes.

Although, it has much more graphic physical scenes then any of the other books of the whole series as far as I've read (i still need to read Child of the Prophecy). Liadan is a very admirable character and the story plot will have you reading the book nonstop. It does get a bit slow in the middle but it's enjoyable nonetheless in my opinion. I wish we would of gotten to know Ciaran's character more in this book but i'm hoping I'll know more about him in the next one. I give it 4 starts instead of 5 because some parts were too graphic for my taste (i'm not just talking about the gory scenes).

A perfect sequal to the first book, a beautiful story of courage, love, sacrifice, & creating one's own destiny.

I love how Juliet Marillier interweaves Irish/Celtic myths into stories that are still relevant, perhaps especially to women

I loved the first book in this series, and this one was just as good! A great story of love for the family and for the man of her dreams. I love a leading woman that has a fierce love, but also a gentleness that makes her real. This daughter has that and more. Can't wait to read the 3rd book in this series :)
