Daughter of the Forest Juliet Marillier read online review & book description:

Daughter of the Forest is a testimony to an incredible author's talent, a first novel and the beginning of a trilogy like no other: a mixture of history and fantasy, myth and magic, legend and love.

Lord Colum of Sevenwaters is blessed with six sons: Liam, a natural leader; Diarmid, with his passion for adventure; twins Cormack and Conor, each with a different calling; rebellious Finbar, grown old before his time by his gift of the Sight; and the young, compassionate Padriac.

But it is Sorcha, the seventh child and only daughter, who alone is destined to defend her family and protect her land from the Britons and the clan known as Northwoods. For her father has been bewitched, and her brothers bound by a spell that only Sorcha can lift.

To reclaim the lives of her brothers, Sorcha leaves the only safe place she has ever known, and embarks on a journey filled with pain, loss, and terror.

When she is kidnapped by enemy forces and taken to a foreign land, it seems that there will be no way for her to break the spell that condemns all that she loves. But magic knows no boundaries, and Sorcha will have to choose between the life she has always known and a love that comes only once.

Juliet Marillier is a rare talent, a writer who can imbue her characters and her story with such warmth, such heart, that no reader can come away from her work untouched.

    This book is so powerful. It has an strong message that love prevails. It's themes are loyalty, family, and friendship. I think Sorcha is an amazing woman. The author deals with Sorcha's pain and suffering as she goes through her trials. She is a relatable character, who is very strong. The author us very faithful to the original story.

    Do not get this on iBook!!! But do read it in print. This is at least a four star book but I am beyond disappointed in the ebook version! I had it in print and lost it and decided to just get it on iBooks. There are so many typographical errors in the digital version my reading experience was ruined. It seems that it could not have been edited at all.
  • Great Story!!

    This book truly changed my life. The story is a rich blend of life, legend, love and magic. The characters stay alive in your mind long after you've turned the last page. A must read.

    This is by far the most skilled retelling of the Seven Swans fairy tale I have ever read. The author steeps her story in the dark myth and magic of the medieval Celts and her knowledge of the myths and traditions of that period is incredible. Head's up: this is not a book for kids. The themes, while tastefully written, are adult in nature. Be sure and read the rest of the series!!!
