I read the first in the series 6 months ago and loved it. I have so many books to read and finally got around to reading Son of Shadows, it was just as good as the first one. She is an amazing writer, She can truly spin a story. I ordering the 3rd book Child of the Prophecy immediately! Can't wait yo continue the saga and see how everything works out.
This is the second novel, after Daughter of the Forest.
This is the tale of Liadan, a medicinal herbal healer like her mother Sorcha, who gets thrown into an adventure with a bunch of outlaws. She befriends the crew on the way, and creates a strong bond with the leader. A unlikely companionship who comes from different sides of propriety. They struggle against the forces of what is right and proper to the Sevenwaters family - and their own feelings toward each other - and those that are willing to tear them apart and keep them apart at all costs.
Love finds them, and it is stronger than the forces that try to bend their path differently
Excellent book! Once again Juliet Marillier sucks you into the story with all the great characters. Most of the characters from the first book also make an appearance, or at least are mentioned. Liadan, the heroine, is a mini version of Sorcha, though has to overcome a whole new set of obstacles. Like the first book, you are caught up cheering for her all the way.
