Liadan demonstrates the same fortitude her mother displayed in Daughter of the Forest as she makes her way through a path of treachery and shadowss in order An outstanding book that continues the story of the children of Sevenwaters, and another for my favourites shelf. The exquisite poetry of the story is carefully balanced with strong characterizations and more than a nod to Irish mythology.
Warriors,druids,mercenaries,misguided girls,they were all woven in a pattern and Liadan held the key to either destruction or salvation. There were other things that worked but didn’t work for me, too. But when I first started SotS, I was more than a little worried that it was going to be a lukewarm rehashing of DOTF, covering the same ground with “new” characters, and trying to recapture the magic.

In fact, she never uses her alleged fighting skills once in the whole book. I’m no good at this explaining stuff.
