The story is painted with wide brush strokes of mystery and adventure. The world building is excellent and you literally feel as if you have pulled the curtain back and gazed into a well-established environment. The story kept my attention and I found myself wondering where it was going to lead.
I enjoyed the fact that the author was not initially drawn into an obvious “romance” with one of the male characters. It is all too easy to peg a female lead in that way. But Keelin is defiant, unapologetic and stronger than all her male counterparts. She was “kick-ass”. It was refreshing to see that none of the male characters reduced her down to her gender, but showed a true respect for her ability to hold her own against any male.
In summary, this is a well-written, robust adventure. If you enjoy fantasy-adventure, this book is for you.
I look forward to the next book in this series and I hardly ever say that.
Hutson's ability to thread words together to bring to life a tale of courage, discovery, loss, love and death, in ways only true master storytellers can, is...well, I have no word for it. Words such as amazing, outstanding, brilliant...are trivial and doesn't come close to describe her writing. I couldn't put the book down, and when I had no choice, the story nagged at me constantly until I was able to return. The characters, those of human and drackan kind, are vivid and full of colors. Their fears, needs, wants, joy and frustration becomes yours and you will find disconnecting with them a difficult task.
You will discover Keelin and how she came to be raised by an elderly drackan. When she begins to have blackouts that she can't explain, the world of man pulls at her to find her answers. Her loyalty is tested, her fear becomes her strength. She becomes divided. In the world of drackan she is Keelin, in the world of man she is Kaht-Amvir. Two different women, one body and soul.
Keelin's story is a complex one, but is expertly told with ease. Her's is a story well captured and should be released over and over again by many. Ms. Hutson is a true storyteller.
There is a preview of the sequel included at the end that is so tantalizingly delicious and insanely cruel I wanted to reach out and strangle the storyteller. Well played, Ms. Hutson, well played.
Mrs. Hutson is skillful in character development. You forget that these characters are on a page. She masterfully writes from several characters point of view which allows you to understand their motivations, drives, and dreams. They aspire to accomplish their life's work and they do so with zeal. Rarely have I seen as much thought and consideration poured into each character in a story. Even ancillary characters come through as lively as the main ones.
Plot is amazing. It is ruthless. Then again, so is the main character, but you love her for it. You will cheer for her all the way to the end. You will not want to see the last page coming because you will definitely want to read more. Thankfully, more novels are planned in the series, and I will be keeping my eye out for them. There is action, violence, self-discovery, epic battles with drackans and men. There is an allure to the main character that is not easily explained, but powerful.
I really can't recommend "Daughter of the Drackan" enough. You will miss out on one of the best fantasy novels out there if you continue on without buying it.
