Emerging Legacy: A Story of the Wolverine's Daughter by Doranna Durgin

This short story features the Wolverine's Daughter: 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.

First published in the award-winning Random House anthology YOUNG WARRIORS.

About Kelyn in the novel WOLVERINE'S DAUGHTER
(soon to be a Backlist eBook):

"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.... And 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."

About the Author

Doranna's quirkiness of spirit has led to an eclectic publishing journey, spanning genres over 30 novels to include mystery, SF/F, action-romance, paranormal, franchise, and a slew of essays and short stories.

Beyond that, mostly she still prefers to hang around outside her New Mexico mountain home with the animals, riding dressage on her Lipizzan and training for performance sports with the dogs. 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...

I am a fan of Doranna Durgin and this very short story did not disappoint. Kelyn is part of a group that spends time hunting on the mountain. One day they are captured by slavers and the story of how Kelyn, the one considered a klutz, manages to save the group. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and thank LibraryThing for the copy of this book to read and review.
