Book Description

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 be in those Outlands...and they’re about to find out what it means to have her. Award-winning author Doranna Durgin has over 49 novels & stories.

"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."

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."

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice! October 11, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Wolverine was a legendary warrior. He was also Kelyn of Ketura�s father. He had left her mother before she was born. Kelyn cared nothing for the Wolverine or his legends. She wanted nothing to do with him. She grew up in the mountains of Ketura learning to survive, like her father before her as her mother wished. She had to practice much harder than the others of the village due to her occasional bouts of clumsiness. Where others did things gracefully, she was awkward. Where others learned quickly, she had to practice often and thoroughly.
When her mother died, the village witch told her that she must find her father if she wanted to find herself. So she began her journey. Kelyn did not wait for trouble to find her. She followed trouble to find the Wolverine. Once found, a battle of witches, barbarians, and sorcery began! Kelyn also found out WHY she was often clumsy. However, she could not understand why that clumsiness vanished at times of danger and battle. One thing was for certain, the Wolverine could not deny she was his daughter and he had definitely met his match!
**** Excellent! Like watching Xena and Hercules side-by-side! I plan to look up other books by this amazing author! Highly recommended reading here! ****

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn Good! January 9, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent story about Kelyn, who was raised by her mother and needs to search for her father - the Wolverine - in order to really find who she is. Since she's pretty handy in the wild as well as with self-defense, this sounds like a cinch...with the exception of a little curse placed by someone close to her... Loved it! Can't wait for the sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice fantasy elements, though lacking some story May 15, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was impressed with the other reviews of this book and went out and bought it, not a total mistake; though after finishing the book I feel there was a lot that seemed to be edited out of the finished product. The hardest time that I had with the book were all the lapses of time between each chapter. (i.e. going into battle [end chapter], [next chpter] out of battle and on the road again) This example goes to a little extreme however it is not far off. I felt that there were too many circumstances that were barely brushed over, if not skipped entirely, that would have only added to the overall storyline. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the book, there was just things lacking. I know that this review does not tell anything about the story, there are many other reviews that summerize the story, this is a review about the fluidity of the book. The way that the book was, either edited or written, leads me to think that Doranna Durgin was aiming possibly for a more young adult audience.
I did fully enjoy the elements of fantasy within the novel. The magick, myths, and the fact that Kelyn was human and made (many) mistakes and was not a goddess incapable of error. Ironwood, great use of the magick (or lack thereof).
Thank you, Ms. Durgin, for not following many with the whole series concept. I have been wainting for someone to write one novel and leave it at that. Thanks again.
Overall, try your local library first before running to purchase. If after you have read it, and you still love it, add it to you home library to enjoy over and over. I will certiainly try another book by Doranna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action, Adventure, Exciting January 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was about a young women named Kelyn who struggles to live up to her father's legend. Raised by her mother in her father's land she becomes a worrier who lives off the land. She sets out on a journey to discover who she really is and to find her legendary father. I thought that this book was packed full of adventure, emotions, and the struggles of living with mistakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old time books April 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't often write reviews because I am always moving on to my next book and so forget all the gritty details I loved or hated about the book I've just finished. I'm an old time Fantasy/Science Fiction reader. And this is one of the books I found a long time ago when I was in High School/College (20 years pre-2000). So you will have to forgive me if I don't remember the details or recognize the new cover. There aren't many books I hate (maybe 5-10 at most), but there are a great many books on the do not read/buy because I don't like the way they read or the writing style. I loved this book and put the author on my permanent to buy list along with Ru Emerson, Barbara Hambley and a great many others. Like I said, I'm easy to please. If you love to try out new authors and strong heroines, this is the book for you. You may hate it, but it will give you a good ride getting there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to my bookshelf October 30, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kelyn's father was the legendary Wolverine, but that doesn't mean she wants to be like him. In fact, she wanted nothing to do with him. Growing up in the mountains of Ketura taught her how to survive almost anything--even her clumsiness. She trains herself to be more careful than all the others, better than all the others, stronger than them and quicker, because not to do so would be death in the cold unforgiving mountains of Ketura. As the years pass, she becomes confident in her hunting and tracking abilities, and happy... until her mother dies and reevers try to desecrate her body.
Kelyn is told by someone she trusts that to find herself and her destiny, she must find the father she despises. Wolverine had left before she was born, left her mother to fend for herself. She wants nothing to do with him... and yet, to leave the mountains for adventure in far away lands has a strange appeal.
Kelyn did not wait for trouble to find her, instead she uses a talisman that she took from the dead reevers to go looking for it! She knows from stories of the Wolverine that wherever there is trouble, Wolverine won't be far behind. She finds trouble aplenty, and her father, but he isn't what she expected at all. The Wolverine is a hard battle scarred warrior, just as she had thought he would be, but he is also what she would call a cocker (a foolish male or idiot) When she declares herself his daughter, he doesn't believe her! Then she learns he is fighting for the very people he professes to despise--witches.
Well, Kelyn couldn't leave it there. She had to tell him what a fool he was, but he won't believe anything she says... until she forces him to see the truth and everything changes. Suddenly, her lifelong clumsiness is gone. She learns that far from being a simple matter of clumsiness, she was under a curse--making her father acknowledge her as his daughter has broken its hold on her... or has it?

More About the Author

Doranna responded to all early injunctions to "put down that book/notebook and go outside and play" by climbing trees to read & write.

Such quirkiness of spirit has created a wandering path through the publishing world, spanning genres and form to include nearly 40 novels and counting--mystery, SF/F, action-romance, and franchise, including the Compton Crook-winning Dun Lady's Jess--and a slew of essays and short stories. She also co-manages the Backlist eBooks collective of traditional authors presenting their backlist.

But after all that, mostly she still prefers to hang around outside with the animals. She doesn't believe so much in mastering the beast within, but in channeling its power. For good or bad has yet to be decided.
