And yet, at the same time, despite its sea monsters and memory loss, despite its strangers and sea tides, Seer of Sevenwaters leaves something to be desired in the wake of its predecessors, each more stunning than the next. Her voice variations, especially for male characters and creature were grating, annoying or laughable when they weren't meant to be funny. I love Juliet Marillier, and I love her Sevenwaters books.

First of all I'm really sorry to have rate a Marillier book a 1 star.
Terrible events hinder her progress and oc take her further and further away from her home. Book blogs need to back each other up!!
The Sevenwaters Trilogy
The plot is so slow, that I swear continental drifts move at a faster pace. Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Fantasy The plot was fine, however I did not find myself drawn to the book. Here we had two sides of the same story, and this is a bit harder to accomplish without repeating oneself. The first one is recovery and getting to know oneself again. When he does finally regain it, though, the tale he has to tale is one so fantastical it is nearly impossible to believe.
Despite a fearsome reputation, these strange warriors aren't abusive or even rude to her--all they want is for her to heal their friend, a wounded blacksmith. Jul 07, Kate Forsyth rated it really liked it Shelves: It's as if she will live a life unfulfilled unless she is married.
The outlaws respect her greatly--except for one, their Chief, the notorious "Painted Man". I enjoyed this novel immensely; there sevenwateds no denying that, but not as much as esvenwaters predecessors. Sibeal is an interesting heroine whose introspection forms an integral part of the narrative.

Seer of Sevenwaters – Book Review – Blame Chocolate
She makes the characters seem weak. She is certainly churning out books much faster than she has in the past, which doesn't bode well, and I think her recent books suffer from a lack of time and effort put into their plots. Which character — as performed by Terry Donnelly — was your favourite? Sibeal is a young woman, determined to be a druid.
I got really attached to them in the previous book. She also has four adult children and seven grandchildren. Like that Knut was a lying sevdnwaters and that Svala was not his wife, but clearly someone he'd abducted and was keeping against her will. I can see why the reviewers so far have liked the book: Everything she did or experienced was often boring and uninspiring.
Seer of Sevenwaters – Book Review
After the birth of baby Finbar, everyone is relieved to see that serr and child are both healthy and safe—until the newborn disappears suddenly while Clodagh is babysitting him. The story itself has few surprises. I loved seeing the camaraderie of Inis Eala. As the island's healers struggle to keep Felix alive, he and Sibeal form a natural bond.
I never had the feeling that I was reading the same thing over and over again. When strangers die in a shipwreck nearby, everyone speaks in hushed voices and loses sebenwaters appetites for days; there's a constantly voiced concern about whether people are "ready" to talk about traumatic events; characters are forever telling each other how wonderful or brave they are, and showing open admiration for anyone who does anything remotely challenging.
There are many references to this. Sibeal got annoying at timesespecially towards the end when she was actually going to give Felix up.
sevenaaters She has made an informed decision to follow a certain path of life because of her sight but a the decision has not been final and b there are no reasons not to change it. If you really liked the first 3 books then it's worth it to finish the series.
