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 mountains. And palgued by moments of enoumous and puzzling clumsiness.
Angered by her father's abandonment, Kelyn doesn't care about her father, but the lure of adventure in the Outlands calls to her, just as it called to her father before her, and she accepts the challenge. New languages, new weapons, magic, witch hunts--the treachery of civilization. She doesn't know just how much a challenge it will be . . .
An interesting slant on the 'youth questing to adulthood' novel.
