One day a bear wakes up as a 12 year old girl and her life is changedCloud is the human Thrush s daughter but also Lord Stink s the bear king When she awakens as a girl Thrush s current husband Rumble ostracizes her and her Aunt Glory takes her into her own home and teaches her how to be human But when Rumble killed Lord Stink and Cloud s brothers he took on some of Lord Stink s power and that power is corrupting him and the human worldHaunted by dreams of her ghost brothers Cloud must go on a uest to rescue the bones of her bear family and rid the human world of corruption but to do so she must acknowledge both the human and the bear within herBear Daughter combines Native American spiritual mythology with a Western uest narrative that reminded me of the wild swans fairy tale an analogy she also makes in this wonderful interview It s a uniue fantasy novel and I enjoyed the mythology and the connection with the wild I did feel frustrated by the middle Cloud pursues the same uest throughout the novel but the uest is constantly thwarted over and over in countless ways It becomes a bit annoying after a while However I loved both the beginning and end as well as the mythos Thanks to Jalilah for recommending this one 355
