Read full description of the books Das Kind der Stürme:I think this book was at least as good as Daughter of the Forest, although in a somewhat different way. DotF was, as I've noted in that review, a tale of the strength of love for family, of good overcoming evil even when it is at great cost, and of love found along the way. Child of the Prophecy is, I think, a book about learning to love oneself, that it doesn't matter how many people might love you because it is all lost if you don't have that inner core of strength and self-love.
CotP is most definitely a tale of a girl's struggle to find her identity, to figure out what she stands for, and her sacrifice to do what she knows is right despite the horrific cost to herself. Fainne is, in my opinion, probably the most believable of the characters in the three books. She is conflicted and scared, manipulated and manipulating, by turns overly innocent and surprisingly wise. She has otherworldly abilities like many of the other characters who have gone before her, but unlike them, she seems entirely earthly. I think her own doubt about her nature gives her that groundedness, because her insecurities make her feel inadequate and as a result, she doesn't trust those very otherworldly abilities that were almost taken for granted by Sorcha and Liadan. Those women were both completely aware of who they were and what they thought their roles in life were. They had no crises of identity like Fainne, so we never really had the same experience of seeing them decide who they were, as we do with Fainne.
This is also a tale of personal accountability. Throughout, Fainne is coerced to do some terrible things, and she does her best to make amends, to right the wrongs that she caused. She pays a huge price and does so willingly in atonement.
Darragh is, aside from Conor and Finbar, my favorite male character. I don't really get his somewhat slavish devotion to Fainne considering all she put him through, but he is an admirable character and any woman would be lucky to have a man like him. He is clever, well rounded, and brave. He can be a fighter when needed, but his preference is to be gentle and loving with all things.
As always, Marillier delivered another exceptional novel and I'd highly recommend this, along with the other 2 previous books, to anyone who enjoys fantasy, Irish myth, paganism/Druidis, and rich, complex characters.
