Wat een geweldig eerste deel van deze nieuwe serie door Juliet Marillier. Ik heb er echt van genoten. Het heeft alles wat een fantasy boek moet hebben. Magie, faeries en een queeste om op te lossen. Liobhan, Brocc en Dau zijn moedige jonge mensen die deze queeste ondernemen. Zij moeten in het kader van hun opleiding als strijder een gestolen harp terugbrengen voor dat op de dag van de Zomerwende de zon ondergaat. Deze harp wordt gebruikt om de nieuwe koning van het volk van Breifne uit te roepen volgens de oude tradities van dat volk toen ze zich nog bewust waren van de aanwezigheid van het volk van de faeries. Spannend en heel erg goed gedaan.… (mere)

This is book 2 in a trilogy. It’s been a very long time since I read book 1, but it’s not really necessary to have read it, as it’s the next generation that is followed in this book vs the 1st. I remembered nothing from the first book, and I don’t think it mattered.

Liadan and Niahm (pronounced Nee-av – have to say I was happy to have the glossary and pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book!) are sisters. When Niahm falls in love with a druid and disgraces herself by giving herself to him (all in secret), her family hurriedly marries her off to the older man they want to make an alliance with. Liadan accompanies Niahm part-way to her new home, but is kidnapped on her way back. She is a great healer and has been asked to help some “outlaws” heal one of theirs. While there, Liadan becomes friends (and more with one) with them, and hates to leave, but needs to go home to her dying mother.

It took a bit at the start for me to get into this. I’m not always “into” fantasy (Liadan also has a “sight” of a kind), and difficult to pronounce words (thank you, glossary!) also make things harder. But once Liadan was kidnapped, the story really picked up for me. There were a few times I kind of lost interest, but there were many happenings that made the book “enjoyable” for me. I’ve never been a fan of a “story within a story”, and this one does contain a bunch of those (oral storytelling is popular in Liadan’s family). On rereading the review of the first book, I wasn’t sure if I would continue the series (obviously I did), and I do plan to continue on from here. It looks like it was originally meant to be a trilogy, but has expanded beyond that.

It has been years since I read the first in this series, Daughter of the Forest, so it was nice to return to world of Sevenwaters however by about 60% I was a bit bored and skimmed the rest. I want to finish this series, or at least the first three books - I will be back!
