The principal character of the Sevenwaters Trilogy is always a woman (Daughter of the Forest -> Sorcha; Son of the Shadows -> Liadan), and even in this last romance the heroine is a girl: her name in Fainne; she's different from Sorcha and Liadan, because of her voluntair loneliness, her strong will and her rejectment towards love and friendship.
She's the daughter of Niamh and Ciaràn, and she carries the inheritance of four different generations, but she won't understand it. She believes herself an evil creature, because of her sorceress nature.
A person doesn't choose his family. The blood in his veins can't influence his entire life... Or can it? Is it possible to rebel against who use your lover's life against you? Is it right to sacrifice many innocent lifes to save the one you love?
It's a powerful, painful and interesting tale full of death, love, struggle for power and thoughs about our own nature.
I enjoyed this book very much.
