What was meant to be a peaceful visit is quickly transformed as a shipwreck on a nearby reef sends three survivors esvenwaters the island, including a mysterious amnesiac who Sibeal finds herself caring for.
The Sevenwaters Trilogy
My heart go out to them and I feel their pain, love and loss. We see his sarcastic tongue emerge and his ominous warnings about if own friend cause us to doubt his character.
But it seems I was wrong. Cathal is a warrior from Johnny’s team and the childhood friend of Aidan. I just thought that Marillier was above creating a character just for the sake of a love triangle.
Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier
I’d recommend this book to fans of the original Sevenwaters trilogy and Juliet Marillier, but if you haven’t read anything by her before definitely start with Daughter of the Forest. Gostei tanto ou mais que “A Filha da Floresta”: Like all of us, I suppose, except Muirrin, because the first one must be special. After reading the adventures of her grandmother, aunt, and cousin, Clodagh just seems rather…. The root of this problem might be that Marillier has a distinctive writing style.
And instead of following its predecessors and taking place a generation after the previous book, Heir to Sevenwaters would be set just three years after the events of Child of the Prophecy.
To set things to rights for her family and for all the people of Sevenwaters, Clodagh must enter the shadowy Otherworld and confront the powerful prince who now rules there. Although, after a point, it would be difficult to come up with new tales, I know the story I’m going to tell her when I see her next. With her mother pregnant, Clodagh fears the worst since Aisling is well past the safe age for childbearing. There’s the usual drama with chieftains and land, but the story brings in a lot more Irish mythology when Clodagh’s new baby brother and Sean’s heir is stolen and replaced with a changeling.
The reward may be far greater than she ever dreamed.
Heir to Sevenwaters (Literature) – TV Tropes
Though Clodagh isn’t gifted as a seer or with magical abilities, she is perceptive to the Otherworldly beings that share the forest around her home, sometimes seeing things others can’t.
I felt that this lack of specialized skills made it easier to put the reader in her shoes. To view it, heor here. The book made me cry especially when Mac Dara made Cathal walk in when Clodagh screamed. While Clodagh and Cathal slowly, tortuously, sevenwatets in love, the perfection of their union is made all the more obvious. Similarly, Clodagh is willing enough to look beyond the facade that Cathal puts up and see that he is, in every way, her equal.
As Cathal and Aidan continue to stay at Sevenwaters, Clodagh cannot help but notice how srvenwaters and distant Calath is. And Clodagh……well, she did help to save her brother, which is worth noting, but after that her role in the book is questionable, because Cathal takes the reins completely.

Wildwood Dancing Cybele’s Secret Seer of Sevewaters 6. There is ample room for another Sevenwaters book, and I do hope that it Marillier’s intent. Keep working at your craft.
Admittedly, she was constrained by the frame of the fairytale back then. Clodagh shares a psychic mind-link with her twin sister Deirdre Dair-drajust as her father, Sean, shares with his twin Liadan. All of a sudden he went from sardonic antihero to crusading potential hero of the Otherworld, a sudden departure that seemed so….
Sibeal’s comment I think really sums it up quite well: Deord from Blade of Fortriu. Instead, it is her perseverance despite the burdens placed before her that make her such an engaging heroine. Clodagh knew what she had to do and didn’t hesitate to do it, but she had fears the whole time. The process is a bit like this: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Along the way, however, she will uncover more not only about her companion, Cathal, but also about, surprisingly, herself.
Yes, more time had passed in the Otherworld than in the mortal world between Clodagh’s visits, but it seems Cathal didn’t only leave years behind in the Otherworld– he also left anything that truly distinguished him from his, I’ll use the word ‘predecessors.
Child of the Prophecy Juliet Marillier. Son of the Shadows 3. But then, I guess that would slightly alienate readers, not to mention Clodagh. Clodagh has no other options; she must take whatever help she can get—and deep down, she can tell that Cathal is not behind the kidnapping. Marillier only kept the characterization long enough to bring about sexual tension, then dropped it completely.
The Tuatha De Danann are still equal parts otherworldly and terrifying. For example, through the story, it is clear that the gods as they perceived at that time were not necessarily human assistants, nor did they represent the way people functioned; instead, they were considered creatures outside human logic, so much higher than us that they could not perceive our psychology.
Or the baby might be a girl.
