Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Juliet Marillier’s Sevenwaters series has been praised as a “magnificent saga” (Alernative Worlds) that is a “gripping tale of enduring love” (Publishers Weekly). Now, Marillier returns to Sevenwaters with the story of a young woman destined to unlock the secrets of the Otherworld…
Maeve, daughter of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters, was badly burned as a child and carries the legacy of that fire in her crippled hands. After ten years, she’s returning home, having grown into a courageous, forthright woman with a special gift for gentling difficult animals. But while her body’s scars have healed, her spirit remains fragile, fearing the shadows of her past.
Sevenwaters is in turmoil. The fey prince Mac Dara has become desperate to see his only son, married to Maeve’s sister, return to the Otherworld. To force Lord Sean’s hand, Mac Dara has caused a party of innocent travelers on the Sevenwaters border to vanish - only to allow their murdered bodies to be found, one by one. When Maeve finds the body of one of the missing men in a remote part of the woods, she and her brother Finbar embark on a journey that may bring about the end of Mac Dara’s reign, or lead to a hideous death. If she is successful, Maeve may open the door to a future she has not dared to believe possible...

Beautifully read - interesting heroine

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would not because I think that this is not as good as the other books in the series - it is still a good book and probably worth reading/listening to especially if you liked the others - it does have some satisfying twists and an interesting main character but it lacked something of the spark that made her earlier books so wonderful - I did really like the way that it was read however - it really brought the book to life


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have focused on the villain and made the struggle between the factions of faery and the main characters more central rather than focusing almost entirely on the human concerns - I felt that more magic might have added to this story


What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She brings an authentic accent which brings the main character to life and also I am certain I would not have been able to pronounce one or two words correctly such as geis


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really but then it was a very long book! I certainly enjoyed listening to it


Any additional comments?

I would recommend reading the earlier books

Breathtaking.

Loved it from beginning to end. The narrator is magnificent and breathes life into all of the characters. I'm going back to the beginning to relish it all over again!
