I thought this was absolutely lovely. Sibeal, the fifth daughter of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters (Sorcha's son, Liadan's twin, Fainne's uncle) , has been training her whole life to become a drud, ever since the Lady of the Forest appeared to her as a child. She has been sent to Inis Eala, which her cousin (Bran and Liadan's son), Johnny for a summer by her mentor and kinsman, Ciar¿n. She has only been on the island five days when a Norse ship wrecks, with only three survivors; Knut, who seems trustworthy and normal, but hiding a terrible secret, beautiful, tragic Svala who ill not speak, or can't, and a handsome stranger who cannot remember anything, not even his own name, who Sibeal rescues personally, who is hanging on by a thread. The plot of this book unfurls beautifully, the characters are realistic with their, well, overall…just plain outstsndingness and flaws—did I mention both Sibeal and Felix narrarate story?—and this book is written wonderfully, just like all of Juliet Mariller's other books. It could work as a stand-alone but I wouldn't reccomend it. Go and read the other books of the Sevenwaters Series. Do it. And I would of course want you to read this. I loved it, and you will too, so please read this wonderful book, and have fun!

I love Juliette's previous works, but was initially unmoved by this work. The story seemed too slowto unfold, and felt a bit cliche to me. Still, I did find myself reading with more anticipation as the climax neared.

A little slower than the other books but still worth the read.

A full, passionate story-- with characters, whose individual tales make them come alive. An whose plot bears a resemblance to "The Odyssey" by Homer. Recommendation: "The Lost Years of Merlin" by T.A. Barron

I've been a fan of Juliet Marillier ever since I picked up her book 'Daughter Of The Forest' back in the year 2000. I followed the Sevenwater Series up to this book and was finding it very hard to continue on seeing as I never found the characters as compelling as the first novel. Seer of Sevenwaters rekindled my love for this series. Sibeal is an amazing character filled with fortitude of the mind and body. Her dreams of becoming a druid are powerful, yet she is so determined in this vision that she is blinded to all other alternatives. She is stubborn, a bit pretentious, but wholeheartedly supportive of family and friends. The romance, which is bound to happen in a Juliet Marillier book, is a little too fast for my liking but it develops beautifully. The tale closely resembles that of the selkies, yet is its own entity. Well worth reading for its vision, crafting, and voice.

Another great addition to the Sevenwaters saga! In this one we follow Sibeal on her path to become a druid ,Ciaran has sent her to the island of Inis Eala to spend the summer with her sisters before she makes her final pledge to become a full druid. But as with all daughters of Sevenwaters her path takes some twists and turns. Also in this book we had some continuation of Clodagh and Cathal's story but their story is far from over so I look forward to more from them. This was a really good story and I loved the look back in stories that were told in the hall it made me remember some of the details I had forgotten from the previous books since it has been awhile since I've read them. It also reminded me how many generations of the Sevenwaters family I have come to know and love. Sorcha's great grandchildren were born in this book and I guess I'd kind of forgotten just how far this story has come. The story did wrap up but there is definitely more story to tell and look forward to the next book in this wonderful series. 4 ½ Stars

The fifth daughter of the Lord of Sevenwaters, teenager Sibeal of Sevenwaters has always dreamed of becoming a druid. Thus she is excited when she completes her training as all she has left to do to fulfill her goal is to take the vow. However, Sibeal's Uncle Ciaran directs her to drop her study in order to contemplate if she really wants to become a druid; as there is no change of mind once you commit. He sends her to the island of Inis Eala where her married sisters live for a summer of reflection in isolation. Sibeal is angry with her mentor who she believes is punishing her although she cannot fathom why. A storm causes a shipwreck leaving several stranded voyagers. Sibeal is confused by the behavior of Knut the Norseman and his wife Svala who seems deathly afraid of her husband. The other survivor pulled safely from the water suffers from amnesia. To her shock Sibeal is attracted to this stranger with the memory loss, but also wonders what secrets have the married couple and perhaps the other survivor conceal from her and her family. The latest Sevenwaters' family fantasy (see Daughter of the Forest and Heir of Sevenwaters) is an engaging entry starring a delightful intelligent daughter who must make choices not easy to select from as her life passion has a new passion. The story line starts off slow with much of what has gone on before overly rehashed to the chagrin of fans and glee of newcomers, but once Sibeal steps to the plate, the game accelerates. This is an entertaining romantic fantasy as the audience will wonder whether the heroine will select Druidism or love while also pondering who the amnesiac is. Harriet Klausner

Definitely 5 Stars! Very enjoyable! Whenever I've read a J. Marillier book [ 6 so far] each one turned out to be a 5 Star! Actually, since I now have the complete Sevenwaters (5- star) series it will be a joy to read them all again this summer.

A deeply moving adventure.
Eilantha_Le_Fay on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I feel that this book is something more like an introduction for something that is still to come. It¿s the story of how Sibeal grows up and finally understands what becoming a druidess involves. She must choose between a normal life, with a husband and babies, an extraordinary one.While the mistery and adventure part of this book was quite exciting, the romance for the first time let me down. Sibeal falls in love with this stranger, and I don¿t know why. I love Sibeal, but I didn¿t fall in love with him, and that was new to me, because I always get so involved with my characters¿ I really didn¿t care much about this one. I know that all male characters can¿t be heroes, but I wound¿t really mind if it was so. Felix is too self comiserating for my taste, I¿d rather Sibeal would find someone better.It was amazing to see Ciarán again and remember his love story with Niamh. Though sad and screaming for tragedy, that was one of the most beautiful moments in Sevenwater¿s history.In the end, though I complain, I believed in this book as much as in any of the other ones before, even if I didn¿t love it as much. And I really want to know what happens next.
