The Wolverine’s Daughter is hard-tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile Keturan mountains; she knows nothing of the Outlands, or of her father...or of the curse behind her puzzling clumsiness. But she’s about to find out what it means to visit those Outlands...and they’re about to find out what it means to have her. "When a sword and sorcery book begins with humor, it's fairly well guaranteed to be an excellent read.... This book whips along with impressive fight choreography, excellent background descriptions, and fascinating plotlines." --Kliatt ~~~ Kelyn of Ketura. Daughter of a legendary warrior who left the mountains before she was born. Brave. Strong. Tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile, craggy Keturan mountains. And plagued by moments of enormous and puzzling clumsiness. "Find your father," the local wisewoman tells her. "To find your true self, find the Wolverine." Angered by his abandonment, Kelyn doesn't care about her father--but the lure of adventure in the Out Lands calls to her, just as it called to the Wolverine before her, and she accepts the challenge. New languages, new weapons. Magic. Witch hunts. The treacheries of civilization. She doesn't know just how much of a challenge it'll be. ~~~ "With this new book, Doranna Durgin ventures into classic sword & sorcery -- and turns the subgenre upside down..... I like Kelyn, who could kick Red Sonya's steel bikini-clad butt from introduction to epilogue. Fantasy fans in general will love this book, but it has extra appeal for feminists and for warriors of the female persuasion." --Hypatia's Hoard

The slavers who capture Kelyn's youthful hunting pack also threaten her village--which depends on the meat and trade pelts the pack brings in from the harsh land of Ketura. But except for Kelyn, the pack is drugged…and Kelyn's nickname is Kelyn the Clumsy...

"A captivating series!" ~Jennifer A. Nielsen, NYT bestselling author, The False Prince Bargains. Only the desperate need them. Only the desperate make them. And always, the desperate pay. The silence and never-ending dark of winter are all Elice has ever known, for she is the daughter of the Winter Queen. Isolated in a northern queendom with only the seals for company, she dreams of color and music and life. So when a whaling ship crashes just offshore, she doesn't hesitate to rescue the lone survivor, Adar, who quickly becomes her friend. She must keep him hidden from her mother at all costs, for if the Winter Queen discovers him trespassing, she'll kill him. When her mother reveals just how dark her soul has become, Elice realizes she is as much a prisoner as Adar. To ever know true freedom—to ever become the woman she was meant to be—she must flee with him. But in their flight, she begins to see hints of something more nefarious. The darkness that has taken hold of her mother is spreading, staining the world with its influence. Unbeknownst to Elice, a bargain was made long ago. A bargain she was born to fulfill. In the Fairy Queens Saga, each book features a mortal who makes an ill-fated bargain with the fae to save someone they love. And each time that mortal is drawn a little deeper into an immortal war. By the final books, those mortals find themselves pitted against each other in a race to save a dying world.
