The thing I like best Juliet Marillier's writing is that she doesn't let the reader know what's really going on until the end when everything unfolds. It makes the last chapters more interesting instead of just reading them for the sake of finishing the book.

With this last installment (that's actually not) of The Sevenwaters Trilogy, we see a new kind of narrator. Faine, a child conceived through a coupling cursed by blood, is raised in solitude by her sorcerer father. When it is her time to join her other family at Sevenwaters, her grandmother, the Lady Oonnagh who is bent on revenge against the clan, hones Faine's sorceress's powers into a dangerous weapon to be used under her control. Faine's will wavers leaving the reader unsure which part she will play at the last battle. Will she doom the fairy folk and the Sevenwaters clan or be their salvation?
