"Child of the Prophecy: Book Three of the Sevenwaters Trilogy (The Sevenwaters Trilogy)" by Juliet Marillier

Book Cover

A myth combined with fantasy. That's a very short description of whatthis book is.

The story and plot is important, but the writing and the journey is moreimportant than finding out what happens. And that's a really good thing,since I picked this book up not realizing that it was the third in atrilogy. I was a good 40 pages into the book before I entered it on thissite and discovered it was the final book of a trilogy. It obviouslystands on its own. Some of the characters of the first two books are inthis book and I'm sure they would be more interesting if I had read thefirst two books.

At any rate, the book is set in Ireland and concerns a girl who israised by her father, a sorcerer. She learns from him, and from hergrandmother. She's sent to her mother's family with a task assigned toher by her grand mother. But will she manage to carry out that task? Itis a wonderful tale, well written and worth the reading.
