4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but enjoyable Sevenwaters story 29 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover
Flame of Sevenwaters is the (probable) conclusion to the Sevenwaters saga and focuses on Lord Seán's fourth daughter, Maeve, and her return to Sevenwaters after spending ten years with her Aunt Liadan in Britain, convalescing after being badly injured in a fire.

If you liked Marillier's other books you'll like this one too. While not as breath-taking as Daughter of the Forest or Son of the Shadows, the books is pleasantly written, engaging and well-paced, and I found the heroine Maeve more realistic, confident and more likeable than her sisters Sibeal and Clodagh from the previous books. I would probably put it as my 3rd or 4th favourite in the series, roughly on a par with Heir to Sevenwaters, and better than Seer of Sevenwaters or Child of the Prophecy. Overall the book was very enjoyable, although I found the climax a bit of a let-down which was dragged out for too long with too much talk and too little action. Also, if you are hoping for the grand romance of some of the earlier books this is not the book for you, as the romantic plot plays back-seat to the main story-line, which while disappointing in some ways, also makes this book stand out from the others. So, overall an enjoyable book and a fairly satisfying conclusion to the series, if you enjoy Marillier's books it's definitely worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flame of Sevenwaters 10 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Juliet Marillier's books and I was eagerly looking forward to reading her latest, Flame Of Sevenwaters,feeling quite sure that my long wait would be more than amply rewarded. Maybe,of course, that was the trouble -my expectations were just too great. I was hoping for something with the drama , the romance and the magic of the earlier books and instead I found a rather tired facsimile.Oh, don't get me wrong, its a good read - Juliet is incapable of writing anything merely mediocre. But at the same time, for me at least, it was a disappointment. The familiar ingredients are all there,which is great, but there are differences too, maybe because Juliet has either become a little bored with her setting and her characters or, alternatively, determined not to repeat too assiduously the elements and patterns of her most loved and most successful novels. To start with,I don't much like Maeve. She is courageous,honest and resourceful but so were her sisters and THEY, for all their admirable qualities, were not boring!Maeve lacks charm or charisma and it has nothing to do with her physical disabilities, which she copes with very well. As for the love interest - well, Maeve's prospective husband is hardly fashioned from the stuff of romantic heroes like Red, Bran, Cathal and Ciaran!I cannot say more without giving away the story's twist (though its fairly obvious anyway} butIhave to confess that I found it almost impossible to suspend total disbelief.Shape-shifting is a favourite ploy of Juliet's but I can't help feeling that this time she has simply overstepped the mark. Oh, and to make matters worse (or better, depending on your point of view) Ciaran just outshines everyne else : the book really only springs to life when he appears upon the page.

4.0 out of 5 stars This can't be THE END - 15 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Surely the Faery folk (and Juliet M.) will find a way - and this will be only the latest of this fantastic series, and not the last?

My own favourites of the series may be "Daughter of the Forest" and "Heir to Sevenwaters" but I love all these books, and there's scope for them to go on - and on!

Let yourself feel the magic of this wonderful storytelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Wonder 18 Mar 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Sevenwaters series is truly excellent!
It is filled with Celtic magic (and well understood, since Juliet Marillier is actually a druid)
and heartfilled emotions - I've read all 6 books in less then 3 months which is
really quick for me - I just could not put them down!
A must read for all who love magic (and Ireland!!!)
