about

Enslaved by King Kregant’s army, Dar survived by befriending the fierce orcs who were also forced to serve. Now she has escaped–only to find that the price of freedom may be her destiny.

Calling on her untried leadership abilities, Dar guides the surviving orc soldiers to the safety of their homeland–but the clan leaders refuse to accept her unless she can release their queen from Kregant’s fortress. Shaken by her growing gift for dark prophecy and a fate she feels unprepared to accept, Dar must infiltrate the very heart of the despot’s empire. There she will discover unexpected treachery and an ancient power that threatens the future of all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Second Novel is Even Better than the First! Clan Daughter is the second book in Morgan Howell’s Queen of the Orcs trilogy. This novel offers a change of setting for Dar and the surviving orcs that accompany her. Dar leads the orcs to their lands for safety and freedom, but she must return once again to the land of the king in order to liberate the orc queen who is being held there. It is essential that this trilogy be read in the correct order for complete comprehension of the story! The second book picks up right where the first book ends. The progression of Dar’s journey was fantastic. She embraced her role as a leader, and that is exactly what I wanted to see from her character. The relationships between characters changed, grew stronger, and added more substance to the story. A lot more time was spent exploring the orcs in Dar’s company in terms of their personality, background, and culture. I thought the orc lands and the orc leaders were all so refreshing. It was nice to see the orcs as a kind, peaceful group rather than the stereotypical war lovers that they are in most fantasy settings. One thing that I particularly liked about Clan Daughter was the easy to loathe, strong “bad guys”. I enjoy a story that gives the reader a strong sense of who to hate, and this novel delivered that. Clan Daughter offered a lot of amazing settings that were described beautifully. Certain places were described with vivid detail and I couldn’t help but imagine them as being real. I had a very strong mental image of the land and the cities, as well as the main characters, and this definitely enhanced the rest of the story for me. The storyline progressed a lot, but since Clan Daughter is in the middle of the trilogy, it mainly added more suspense and questions rather than wrapping anything up. There were numerous surprising plot twists that left me super eager to read more. The last few chapters were so filled with action and excitement that I picked up the third book right away. I cannot recommend this fantasy trilogy enough!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad.... This is the second book the in Queen of the Orcs series and as with most movies, it was not as good as the first. The first book was written kind of point formy (yeah i said formy) which is to say it did not flow very well. The action took place and there was little to no fluff in between, it was very to the point. It was kind of what i consider beginner writting (not that i am saying the author is inexperienced). ANYWAYS, i thought that would change a bit in the second book, but if anything it was worse becuase of my expectation. The second thing that bottered me about this book was that it seemed more relationship based. That is one thing that i find irritating in a lot of the other series that i have read. They start out great and then the forcus is truned to the relationships and the sex (which is fine, but there is more to the story, liek the er story!!) In this book Der takes the Orcs home. On the way a few things occur that are not that big of a deal (well maybe to Der they were). We see Der and Kovok's relationship bloom, then they reach their destination and they are held apart. Once Der is accepted into the Orc's place she is coerced into going back to the King's place to rescue the Orc Queen. I'm sure we all see where this is going and we are not dissapointed. Meaning everything happens that we think wil happen and there are really no surprises. Onto book 3. I would suggest picking up this book as it is part of the trilogy. I am leary about continuing, but have heard that the third is better so i will continue.
