Child of the Prophecy

Historical fantasy for adult readers

Child of the Prophecy is the eagerly awaited follow-up to the award-winning Son of the Shadows and the international bestseller Daughter of the Forest.

Raised by her father in an isolated cove and taught some unusual skills, Fainne is sent to live at Sevenwaters and burdened with a terrible task. She must use whatever powers she can to prevent the Fair Folk from winning back the Islands, no matter what the cost. Even if it means losing the one she loves.

But can Fainne turn her back on the people she has come to care for? And can she bring herself to rid Erin of the chosen one: the child of the prophecy?
