Fianne is certainly a different kind of heroine to Sorcha and Liadan, but I still found her likeable and This one took me a bit to get into Fainne is a bit more prickly protag than Sorcha or Liadan from the earlier books but I ended up loving it and racing to finish. I found it an entirely satisfying Juliet Marillier.

She must use whatever powers she can to prevent the Fair Folk winning back the Islands, no matter what the cost. Even if it means denying herself the one she loves.
