Editors sometimes make authors keep their manuscripts under heirr certain length so the book will fit into a standard display rack in the supermarket. By reading your novels i have drawn strength during the dark times in my life, when the world to me was seeming so jaded i felt a calm from your work that i cant explain you have a gift with words!
It felt really good to return to a story and characters that has been so familiar to me ever since I read Daughter sevehwaters the Forest nearly four years ago. This fourth novel in the series recaptured the magic of the family that I felt was lost in book 3.

I still plan to read all the books in this series. I have used traditional stories a few times, though rewritten in my own words, but more often I have made up new stories in iuliet mode of folklore. I was excited to spend time in this setting.
Yes, the lovers still end up married happily, but there is a shadow hanging over them. I did leave things open for a sequel or two.

Next to Sorcha and Red, these two are the most fleshed-out, well-deserving, and beautiful couple in this series.

I had a difficult time getting through Child of the Prophecy, intriguing and dark as it was, because of the abundance of exposition and long-winded descriptions. I just made sure my guesses were historically feasible and culturally appropriate.
I adored this book. Clodagh is not a healer, or a seer, sevenwatrrs by magic, or possessed of any special ability. Son of the Shadows started out great, but for me lost a lot of it’s steam as it chugged along.

Heir to Sevenwaters (Sevenwaters, #4) by Juliet Marillier
I couldn’t believe it when I heard that Juliet Marillier was writing another Sevenwaters book. You have to be one of my favourite authors- u always create such a deep, rich and encapturing story that i cant help but escape into your world and forget everything else for a while.
Many of your books seem influenced by fairytales and folklore. You could always read it again, I suppose: The themes are truthful and real, and that is what makes your works stand out among the same old wizards and dragons fantasy out there. And Faolan, as a father figure!!! I read it in one sitting and then I went back and reread it again! The fact is that the books left me wanting more and i was wondering if you could shed any light on this topic? Readers may be interested to know I have a new series coming out as well — the Shadowfell series, set in a magical version of ancient Scotland.
I love those strong, silent warrior types.
