THE WARRIOR'S DAUGHTER, loosely based on Irish myths, is the gripping story of Luaine, daughter of the feared warrior Cuchulainn.

In her young life, she faces war and the first hints that her father may not be invincible--and those are only the first few hardships endured by young Luaine. Her life isn't always bad, though. She is looked after by the powerful druid Cathbad, and given care of his raven, Fintin, who is always a friend to Luaine, but may turn out to be even more than he seems. Luaine is forced to grow up much too quickly, but she does it well, remaining strong and (eventually) true to herself.

THE WARRIOR'S DAUGHTER is, I believe, Holly Bennett's best book yet, and I loved her first two (THE BONEMENDER and THE BONEMENDER'S OATH). It's full of interesting, three-dimensional characters, and it takes place in the fascinating world of ancient Ireland.

Holly Bennett has an obvious gift for world-building as well as characterization. She is a talented writer, and I can't wait to read her next novel! ( )

Good book; it does an excellent job of retelling a medieval myth with an interesting new twist, while still being plausible and true to the source material. ( )
