Rated 5 out of 5 by from <3 Sevenwaters :) ***WARNING*** SPOILER ALERT! (Very vague, slight spoiler; won't ruin the book for you, but if you're a complete purist about not knowing anything at all, then don't read the review.) Scroll down to read.... Love it, just kind of wish there was a little more romance. It's a little anticlimactic to be so enthralled in their love story and then their big happy ending seems like just 3 or 4 sentences long. Not that I want a Harlequin-style scene of super-heated passion, but I like at least a little satisfaction at the end of a long period of abstinence!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enchanting Sequel Heir to Sevenwaters Julliet Marillier This installment in the Sevenwaters saga, takes place a generation after the Child of the Prophecy. It follows the children of Lord Sean, the current protector lord of Sevenwaters, and the forest surrounding them, for the Tautha De Danann the fey of the Otherworld. Clodagh's world is about to be turned upside down, when her mother takes a turn for the worse during a late in life pregnancy. Her mother insisted on daring despite her age, to give Lord Sean the male heir to Sevenwaters. Although, Clodagh has her doubts to her mother's decision and chances of both her and the son she is sure she is bearing, surviving the risky birth. Also, her twin sister is preparing to be married and moving away, leaving Clodagh the burden of running the day to day life at Sevenwaters. Also, her love interest comes to her sister's wedding, the handsome and talented Aidan. Aidan, the second son of a Chieftain may be a suitable suitor, but he has flaws that his less desirable friend has no problem pointing out. This mysterious and contentious character, repulses and intrigues Clodagh. When her baby brother is kidnapped and changeling (that only she can see) is left in his place and Cathal disappears, suspicion is on Cathal. Clodagh, knows that this isn't so, she knows it has more to do with the Fair Folk that they protect the land for. That she must protect and return the changeling, in exchange for her baby brother. While running away from home to find the portal to the otherworld she runs in to Cathal, and they are nearly caught and returned. In order to save her brother, family and lover, Clodagh must break the spell of the Fairy King Mac Dara. Mac Dara, being a not so friendly member of the Fair Folk, one responsible for a rash of incidents that are creating divisions between the Fey and Humans. On her great quest she realizes she loves not Aidan, but Cathal, and she dooms him to stay in the Otherworld, she realizes she will not be happy, nor will her family be safe unless she is able to save him. Out of the four books this one is by far the best in the series, and I think it is because the characters are more well written. They are more relatable, and not so distant, as the characters in the other books. Plus there is tons of action and adventure, that will have you at the edge of your seat. I am looking forward the next book in this series, as the ending is set up to lead to another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's Done it Again If your a fan of Juliet and her "sevenwaters" trilogy, you will not be let down by her latest addition. The only thing I can wish she'd had done differently is had a longer ending because I didnt want Clodagh's story to end so soon. She paints a wonderful picture of places and people that few other authors are able to equal. She did a good job of bringing back previous characters into the plot and leaving suspensful room for another novel. xoxo hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
