Son of the Shadows is the sequel to Juliet Marillier's evocative first novel Daughter of the Forest. It continues the saga of beautiful Sorcha, the couragous yong woman who risked all to save her family from a wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures.

It is from her sacrifice that her brothers were brought home to Sevenwaters and her life has known much joy. But not all the brothers were able to escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and those who did were all more--and less--than they were before the change.

It is left to Sorcha's daughter Liadan who will take up the tale that the Sevenwaters clan is destined to fufill. Beloved child, dutiful daughter, she embarks on a journey that opens her eyes to the wonders of the world around her...and shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life.

Liadan will need all of her courage to help save her family, for there are forces far darker than anyone chould have guessed and ancient powers conspiring to destroy this family's peace--and their world. And she will need the strength to stand up to those she loves best, for in the finding of her own true love, Liadan's course may doom them all...or be their salvation.

Everything I could ask for

Juliet Marillier is an amazing author! This trilogy has been everything I have been looking for in books. With its thrilling adventures, longing romance, phenomenal story line and a magical world... I can forget about the life around me and be taken away into a place that keeps me dreaming of greater things in and outside of these books. Julie Marillier wrote everything in moderation that left me wanting more... Now, on to the next!

Another excellent read

Loooove this series so much...can't remember the last time a book has kept me up all night because I just cannot bring myself to put it down, and both the first and second installations in this series are responsible for sleepless nights. I'm not even exaggerating--I read until 8am tonight (today?)...though I should disclose the fact that I'm on holidays, so I can sleep in as late as I want; if I had to work I'm sure I'd have forced myself to stop reading around 2 or 3am.
