"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.

She is an amazing storyteller, and this is a very engaging, competent and honest protagonist. Can't wait for the third in the series.

Juliet marillier is an excellent author. She has a way of putting together stories that touch your heart. Emotional,surprising twists, human betrayal, deep love, courage and cowardice. But most of all the love and trusts of the bond between siblings. A very good series.
