And villainous villains are fun to hate, but there is seldom much depth. Sorcha’s courage and sacrifice held her family together,but they were not enough.

I can hardly discuss my love for Son of the Shadows without discussing the romance. The longing that Liadan felt for the man she knew she loved sshadows I definitely felt that but I spent a lot of time waiting for him to come back so I was a little distracted from what was happening while I was waiting.

There are times when she despairs that she is only another powerless woman in a world full of unthinking men, and yet she refuses to give in. It was really great to read about Liadan and learn what happened at the Sevenwaters after the first book.

At the same time, however, it is a generation that wants to enjoy the love and taste it with all the passion that characterizes their war spirit. A man with no past, no future, and a present only in the harsh moments he chooses as his due. You could do far worse than give your heart to her and to her story.


But she loved fiercely,like her parents did. And I need to add that I love the narrator! But I didn’t feel it.

Lean on me and let us walk mariklier path together.
