    "Another great installment in series"

    Rosalyn Landor did a great job on the narration as always, Mac Dara’s voice had just the right amount of contempt for humans and venom when he was crossed. She gave Clodagh a dignity and fragility at times that was a nice blend. I always enjoy all her different voices male and female.

    When we venture back to Sevenwaters the household is preparing for the wedding of Dierdre to a nobleman, the house is full of people among them Johnny and some of his men including Aiden and Cathal, Aiden has eyes for Dierdre’s twin Clodagh and his rude foster-brother Cathal seems to have a lot to say about this. As was decided by Lord Sean, Johnny son of Liadan & Bran would be the heir to Sevenwaters since he and wife Aisling have only had daughters but an unexpected late in life pregnancy produces a son they name Finbar. The pregnancy has been worrisome to the whole household because of Aisling’s age but when everything goes well with the birth the whole household celebrates and sighs with relief, until the day Cathal comes to say goodbye to Clodagh in the nursery and in that second her brother Finbar is gone and in his place a changeling made of sticks that only she can see is a real child from the otherworld. This begins Clodagh’s journey into the otherworld to rescue her brother with Cathal’s help.

    This one had much more otherworldly/magical beings and worlds than the last couple books have had which I enjoyed, most of the book is spent in the otherworld with forest beings and the evil King of The Oaks Mac Dara who wants something but it isn’t Finbar or Clodagh . Cathal was an interesting character because in the beginning he is so rude to everyone especially Clodagh but as the story goes on we see why he was like he was and his reasoning’s behind it all.

    Clodagh’s journey is interesting because unlike all the other daughters of Sevenwaters who did battle with otherworldly foes this is this first one that did their fighting in the otherworld, she has a long harrowing journey and I was glad that years and years hadn’t passed in the real world while she searched for her brother!

    "Least fav of series so far"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd only recommend this one if you were reading the whole series, but not the book by itself. I really love the Sevenwaters series, having read the first 3 years ago, but I found this one to be a little overly predictable. The self doubt and pining after men got to be a little much after a while. The book isn't bad, but compared to the others I thought it was a bit lame.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Juliet Marillier? Why or why not?

    Yes, I plan on finishing the series, though I hope the next one is more interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I thought the performance was really quite good! I loved her accent and finally understood how to say the names. I did however think the editing was a little poor? There were times when she re-read something she had messed up and it wasn't edited out. Also there were like no pauses between transitions which was pretty confusing at times.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only if it was the whole series.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall not a bad book, though so far the worst of the series in my opinion. Still looking forward to reading more of Sevenwaters.

    "Gripping read"
    Where does Heir to Sevenwaters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Most of the books that i have got so far i have enjoyed as the person reading the book keeps you gripped until the end of the book


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and the love that the two main people in the story and that she gets her brother back from the Lord of the Oaks


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    1. She changes her voice for different people in the book so this makes it more interesting
    2. Her Irish accent makes you feel that you are in Ireland
    3. She keeps you hooked


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How that she looked after the changling until she could get her baby brother back and then she goes back to get the of live of her life. It follows on from the previous books in the series


    Any additional comments?

    If you look a good story please dont be put off as it Si-Fi book as it very interesting once you listen to it.

    The only thing that spoils the books are the preview of the next book as it just nice to not knowing about the first chapter.
