Sadly it disappoints me at the end, probably because it was pretty predictable. I expected more tension, more "fights" between Liadan and Eamon (I found him a very intersting villain).
I think the first one, The Daughter of The Forest, was far better than this, but there's another one to be read, and it often happens that the second book of a trilogy is the weakest.
Three stars by the way, Juliet Marillier deserves all of them.
The book is amazing, really. I couldn't stop reading it. Wanna read the 3rd one!
