Overview

In an ancient African of verdant Sahara plains, warrior princess Jeneba Karamoke has grown up scorned by her people because her father was a leopard man. When she rescues a party of fellow warriors from cannibalistic half-men, she hopes it will finally win her acceptance.

But no...in order to prove she isn't lying about the vanished hero Tomo Silla's part in their capture by the half-men she must make Tomo face the tribe. Can she find him, and then survive more monsters, foreign tribes, war, and a curse on a fabled city to bring him back alive?

"With so many pseudo-medieval European fantasies retelling the "chosen boy saves the world" idea, it was nice to read something different, especially with a strong female protagonist who doesn't waste her time brooding. Very enjoyable all around!" ~ T. Weber

Editorial Reviews

Amazon, author of Chronicles of the la - Laura J. Underwood
...a fast-paced original fantasy with teeth and claws. One cracking good read.
Amazon Top 100 - Hariett Klausner
THE LEOPARD'S DAUGHTER is a terrific refreshing fantasy based on the African mythos. The location and the various fantastic species make for a vastly different quest that readers will appreciate. Jeneba is a wonderful protagonist who must save the world she knows when all she wants is to prove herself worthy to her people.
Amazon - Rixosous Reviewer
It's a lovely fantasy novel that is set in ancient Africa at the time when the Sahara was just beginning to encroach on formerly green and fertile lands. The protagonist is Jenaba, a warrior woman of the Dasa tribe who is somewhat ostracized because she was fathered by a leopard-man.

Meet the Author

Lee Killough has been storytelling since the age of four or five, when she started making up her own bedtime stories, then later, her own episodes of her favorite radio and TV shows. Because she loves both SF and mysteries, her work combines the two genres. Although published as SF, most of her novels are actually mysteries with SF or fantasy elements...with a preference--thanks to a childhood hooked on TV cop shows--for cop protagonists.

    Fantastic

    On the Sahara Plains, in spite of being the niece of their King Mseluku Karamoke, her Dasa of the Imbu tribe always held Jeneba Karamoke in contempt because her sire is a shapeshifting leopard man. Still Jeneba is a loyal strong warrior woman and would die for the Dasa, especially her family. However her prayers to become accepted through brave deeds fail even when she rescues her warrior peers including her uncle from monstrous half-human cannibals because everyone blames her for their original plight instead of the man who failed the tribe Tomo Silla. Ironically Tomo¿s action including his disappearance has turned him into a martyred hero instead of a betraying deserter.------ Outraged and disappointed, Jeneba decides she must find Tomo and force him to speak the truth to the Dasa. She begins her personal mission, but instead she finds she must lead losers on a quest to save the people of the missing city of Yagana that abruptly vanished failure means the end of life as she knows it on the Sahara plains.---- THE LEOPARD¿S DAUGHTER is a terrific refreshing fantasy based on the African mythos. The location and the various fantastic species make for a vastly different quest that readers will appreciate. Jeneba is a wonderful protagonist who must save the world she knows when all she wants is to prove herself worthy to her people. Her companions are delightful as there are not heroic Tolkien heroes, but instead include Tomo and a half-man who should be her enemy. A solid short science fiction murder mystery ¿Afterburn¿ is included though it is seemingly out of place with the prime tale as a bonus that showcases the vast talent of Lee Killough.---- Harriet Klausner
