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.

Praise For Queen of the Orcs: Clan Daughter

“Howell’s depiction of the orc culture is fascinating–these orcs are as big, strong, and dangerous as any in fantasy, but they also have moral and ethical issues of importance. This is a book to think about.”
–Elizabeth Moon, author of The Deed of Paksenarrion
