Acho que ao longo do desafio se tornou claro que a saga de sevewaters me marcou de forma incontornável. O nome do blog ‘Bran Morrighan’ tem inclusivé, em parte, origem nestes livros. E também porque todas as histórias mitológicas de Bran estão relacionadas com corvos e o corvo é o símbolo da minha deusa, Morrighan. Por isso aqui fica a descrição da personagem Bran, do livro ‘O Filho das Sombras’, aos olhos de Liadan, uma das personagens femininas mais fortes e com mais carácter que encontrei até hoje na literatura fantástica.
“This was a face such as I had never seen before, even in the most fanciful of dreams, a face that was, in its way, a work of art. For it was light and dark, night and day, this world and the Otherworld. On the left side, the face of a youngish man, the skin weathered but fair, the eye gray and clear, the mouth well formed if unyielding in character. On all the right side, extending from an undrawn mark down the exact center, an etching of line and curve and feathery pattern, like the mask of some fierce bird of prey. An eagle? A goshawk? No, it was, I thought, a raven, even as far as the circles about the eye and the suggestion of predatory beak around the nostril. The mark of the raven. If I had not been so frightened, I might have laughed at the irony of it. The pattern extended down his neck and under the border of his leather jerkin and the linen shirt he wore beneath it. His head was completely shaven, and the skull, too, was colored the same, half-man, half-wild creature; some great artist of the inks and needle had wrought this over many days, and I imagined the pain must have been considerable.” Juliet Marillier em O Filho das Sombras (retirado do Goodreads.com)
