Says it all in title. Glad I spent the money. Five words remaining to submit? Ha! Done.
I really thought this book would be mediocre but it was spellbinding. An action adventure swords and sorcery fantasy novel that I couldn't put down.
What I liked best was the strong female character who lived during the early development of civilization. After the death of her mother, Kelyn went in search of the father she had never known. No matter that Wolverine had the reputation of being almost a superman of that time, Kelyn resented him for not being there and being husband & father to them.I was so drawn into the book that I felt like I was with her as she got into one scrape after another due to her naivety. She didn't understand city ways because she had to take on both roles of male and female just to exist in the wilderness. When she entered the cities, she was perplexed at the division of labor and the subservient role women had.
Kelyn has such a good heart that she is compelled to help others in trouble which land her into hot water again and again.
The people she meets/helps along the way were just as entertaining as she was. If you like a good yarn set in ancient times, travel with Kelyn and meet the "travelers" who take her under their wing while she inadvertently gets them arrested for practicing witchcraft.
There's magic in the air and I was ensnared by it when I listened to this book.
The story takes precedence over the other side lines such as romance,. The romance side is just enough without getting on your nerves. She is not trying to save the world and she doesn't have an army with all the blood and guts. My kind of read found it very hard to get some sleep.
