I debated between the four and five star option. . . And ended up with four. This books is amazingly well-done. Hooks you as quickly as possible. Never disappoints as far as plot-depth, language, characters, etc.
The only thing that detracted from the quality for me was the certain even which happens half-way through the book. While it was a great plot point, I felt like it could have been handled better. I might be wrong. I just felt that she did an admirable job with Simon's early story without being as graphic and I felt that it could have been better. I might very well be wrong. . . ( )

What a beautifully written story-The story of Sorcha of Sevenwaters, 7th child of a seventh son and the only daughter. A re-telling of the Fairy-tale The Six Swans.

Set in Ireland in the 12th century this is a story of family and faith and a wee bit of magic. If the Fantasy MPG shies you away, don't let it. This is more folklore than fantasy and as I said beautifully written. A strong, determined, female lead character put the icing on the cake.

There were times it got a bit "long winded" for my taste, which led to my dilemma to round up or down. What I am sure of: I will find book 2 and I will continue the story. ( )

I didn't remember much from the first time I read this book but I do remember loving it. This re-read confirms it. ( )

{First of 6 in the Sevenwaters series; YA, fantasy, folktale}

A retelling of the story of the Six Swans (The Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen), set in Ireland at the time of the high kings and Ethelwulf of Wessex (Alfred the Great’s father).

Twelve year old Sorcha is the seventh child of a seventh son, Lord Colum of Sevewaters. When he remarries, his new wife seems to have him under a spell and sets about doing the same to the rest of the people of his holding. She knows that Sorcha and her six brothers are versed in the ways of the Fair Folk and could thwart her plans so she casts a spell to turn them into swans. But Sorcha escapes and is told that if she can create a shirt for each of her brothers she can set them free; but she must weave them from a thorny plant that destroys her hands, she must do all the work herself from harvesting to spinning and weaving to sewing and she must allow no sound to cross her lips in the meantime. But she has to do it over many years without the support of her brothers - but after a couple of years she moves away from the forest and is found by a Briton, assumed to be an enemy, and taken across the seas to his lands, all the while continuing with her task in silence. He turns out to be a protector (from a villain who, I felt, was not so much evil as a sly, insinuating bully) and the damsel does rescue the princes in distress.

Richly detailed and I thought the romance was sweet. Sorcha, having been assaulted by local boys in her home forest earlier in her ordeal which caused her to mistrust men (be warned; this scene is written in the book), took a long time to register it and Red was sensitive to this.

I found the scene where her brothers were discussing whether Sorcha should remain in Britain or return to Ireland ironically funny. There were some story lines left open that I would have liked to know the ending of and I don't know that they were finished in the sequels (from what I've read of their synopses).

My favourite passage comes just after this, but that would be a spoiler (although I’ve posted it on Litsy) so I’ll leave you with this:

They appreciated a good tale; and this was told with feeling, though somewhat haltingly. Janis had her eye on the teller. I heard her whisper to one of the kitchenmaids, “That’s a man and a half, that is. If she doesn’t want him, I’ll be the first to offer him a warm bed for the night.”

And then I felt the inner voice of Finbar, whom I had thought scarcely listening, so distant was his expression.
This is a good man, Sorcha.

and I agree; he is a man and a half, in his character and personality.

Another DNF... I got over halfway on this one though because at first I genuinely enjoyed it. The fantasy element played on my childhood nostalgia, but eventually the flat characters and predictability made me wonder how I would keep with it for another 200 pages (nevermind that this doesn't appear to be able to pass the Bechdel test). Onward and upward. ( )
