Summary

Beautiful Sorcha is the courageous young woman who risked all to save her family from a wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures. It is from her sacrifice that Sorcha's brothers were brought home to their ancestral fortress Sevenwaters, and her life has known much joy. But not all the brothers were able to fully escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and it is left to Sorcha's daughter, Liadan, to help fulfill the destiny of the Sevenwaters clan. Beloved child and dutiful daughter, Liadan embarks on a journey that shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life.
Liadan will need all of her courage to help save her family, for there are dark forces and ancient powers conspiring to destroy this family's peace - and their world. And she will need all of her strength to stand up to those she loves best, for in the finding of her own true love, Liadan's course may doom them all...or be their salvation.

Amazing story

Brilliant continuation of the Sevenwaters stories - took awhile to get used to the new voice after the first book, but still brilliantly done.

Spellbinding 💫

Juliete is an amazing author, this book series has me completely hooked. The narrator this time was far easier on the ear and was able to pronounce Irish names properly, the story picked up almost 18 years after the 1st book and it felt as if it flowed seamlessly. A pleasure to listen too. I was completely captivated by Liadan and Brans relationship.

Fantastic Narration, Beautiful Story

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

Resoundingly, yes. This is a story that is better to listen to than to read (and I typically don't even enjoy audiobooks). While recovering from a concussion, I downloaded a few of my favorite books (under doctor's orders not to read). I couldn't get into others, but this narration was fantastic and I found myself totally captivated for most of the story.

At the same time, there are just a few parts that drag. Hang on through them, because the story is worth it!

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

I loved this narrator. She's fantastic -- I was sometimes amazed at her ability to do different voices and had to check to see whether she was the sole narrator. She was the voice of Liadan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh, quite a few, but I don't want to spoil it.

Great book!

Where does Son of the Shadows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best! Absolutely great to listen to.

Any additional comments?

Rosalyn Landor did an amazing job. She told the story beautifully, I could hardly stop listening.
