    Before reading it WANT After reading it My goodness, everything is Sevenwaters and everything hurts I mean, the last Sevenwaters book okay, maybe it s not the last one who knows , but I can t help but feel like it s the end of the world somehow Without a surprise, Flame was an emotional journey for me, 20% because of Maeve, 70% because of other characters and references to previous books in the series, and 10% just because you know I was in possession of a brand new JM book.I knew it would be painful to go back to Sevenwaters and, Gods help me, Harrowfield, but I didn t expect to almost drown in my tears before page 30, which so happened Honestly, when at some point Maeve says that to cross the sea she set sail from a sheltered bay half a day s ride from Harrowfield, I lost it LOST IT dramatization of said moment A sheltered bay A sheltered bay as in SORCHARED S BEACH Oh God Half and hour later I managed to get back to my reading, just to receive the news a character dear to my heart was dead and about to be buried, which of course lead to another hour of crying and feeling sorry for myself After that I tried to focus on Maeve, a character I waited so long to get to know again after Child of the Prophecy, where she burned her hands and face, there were ...

    I can t tell you how much I ve loved the original Sevenwaters trilogy, all of which are still among my favorite books For that reason I ve read most of Marillier s other works, which range from good to mediocre Seer of Sevenwaters was disappointing, but I hoped it was an outlier after all, Seer is a middle book and Marillier wrote it during cancer treatment And I d been hoping for years for a book about Maeve As it turns out, Flame is a lot like Seer.In Flame of Sevenwaters, Maeve the sister injured in the fire in Child of the Prophecy returns home after ten years with her aunt and uncle The first half of the book focuses on Maeve s homecoming, her discomfort in her parents household and her bonding with a pair of stray dogs In the second half Maeve journeys into the Otherworld, and we get the conclusion to the Mac Dara plotline begun in Heir to Sevenwaters.In all fairness, this book does wrap up the dangling plot threads left by the previous two and presents a reasonable end to the story But even by Marillier standards it takes a long time to get going, and while the action eventually picks up, the plot never grabbed me Which is symptomatic of a larger problem the characters Marillier relies heavily on our previous affection for them, but in this book itself they don t come to life They re all alike thoughtful, sensitive, open with their feelings leaving them a bit flat and recycled rather than real and human With everyone working hard to anticip...

    OMFG, ANOTHER SEVENWATERS BOOK Ms Marillier, I only have one thing to say to you

  4. says:

    No, it s not the same caliber as the original Sevenwaters trilogy, but that s a pretty high standard to live up to The later three books are along the lines of YA Fantasy, not as complex or deeply emotional, but still superior to others in their class I ate all three of ...

    If I were telling a story of Sevenwaters and it would be a grand epic told over the nights of a long winter I would surely end with a triumph Happy ending, all well, puzzles solved, enemies defeated, the future stretching ahead bright and true With new challenges and new adventures, certainly, because that s the way things always are But overall it would be a very satisfying story, one to give the listener heart Flame of Sevenwaters finalises the Sevenwaters series As far as the endings go, it is not the worst However, since starting with the third instalment, the novels started to look like clones of each other, the things that distinguish this grand finale yes, this is sarcasm are minor details like the name of the main protagonist This is a story about a girl with crippled hands and a skittish horse and her journey to find love and happiness The journey is both literal brace yourselves for travelogue in the mundane and the fey realm and metaphorical in the sense that it involves character development and overcoming daunting challenges It is a tale meant to convince you that if you are brave and good and wise you can face anything It is a tale about a geas, a curse bestowed upon a person It is also a tale of magical creatures and strange happenings And dogs Every dog lover will adore this tale, this I promise Maeve is not as bad as other Sevenwaters heroines but she is far from somebody I co...

    An amazing finish to one of my favourite fantasy series I don t even know what I was expecting, but this book really made me sorry to be done with the Sevenwaters family.Marillier continues to be one of my favourite authors This book, like so many of her others, hit such an emotional place for me Maeve was a strong heroine, and the portrayal of living with a disability was done so well Maeve s attitude towards her family, her circumstances, and her injuries rang...

    Creo que es mi preferido de la segunda trilog a de Sieteaguas, Marillier le ha dado un muy buen final a la saga.Lo que m s me ha gustado es que Maeve es una protagonista muy diferente, es una novela m s pausada que las dem s y por suerte el romance no es ni de lejos tan importante como en los libros anteriores Las ltimas 150 p ginas no pod a parar de leer y hay unos bu...

    PROBABLE SPOILERS AHEAD.I would just like to preface this review by briefly saying how much I love Daughter of the Forest and Son of the Shadows, and how much I respect both Ms Marillier and the writing she gave us in both of those books, which remain, easily, two of my favorites of all time.I approached Flame of Sevenwaters uneasily The last two or three I remain unconvinced about Child of the Prophecy books I have read from Ms Marillier have left me unsatisfied I truly believe that something has shifted in her writing style or in the way she approaches her stories that has dramatically affected my enjoyment All of the characters have begun to blend together there is no crisp edge of interest any I believe this was present in Seer of Sevenwaters and the other installment of this trilogy, which I can t even REMEMBER the name of, and this too, the last I don t want to write a long piece about how much I disliked this book I will be as blunt but brisk as I can Maeve is no Sorcha In DotF, we see Sorcha grow and evolve through her suffering to a place where she becomes someone to be respected and idolized We do n...

    So good SO good No other words Except that I hope there will continue to be Really, if this series went on forever, I ll be beyond happy Thank you, Ms Marillier, from the bottom of my heart, for your wonderful, magical, beautiful, sweeping tales of Sevenwaters.

    This book would be fine if it wasn t for the weird romance that happened.
