    One thought on “Coyote's Daughter”

    1. Perhaps I've spent too much of my life running and participating in writing workshops. Maybe that's why I didn't start reading this book the instant I downloaded it. The author is someone I've come to deeply respect as a smart friend and creative collaborator. What would I say if I didn't like her book? How would I frame my "dangerous but useful" feedback? Luckily, my fears were for naught. Coyote's Daughter takes place not far (and yet very far) from where I live, so I appreciated the careful a [...]

    2. Coyote's Daughter by Corie J. Weaver is filled with magic and adventure in a tightly woven story that's nearly impossible to put down. What Rick Riordan has done with Greek, Egyptian and Norse mythology, Weaver does with the legends of the native culture of the American Southwest, blending the stories and characters of old with a modern, young protagonist into books that are both compelling and (say it softly) educational.Even better, Weaver applies her writing craft with as much style and talen [...]

    3. This excellent young adult fantasy struck me as the reverse of 'Twilight' in that Maggie leaves coastal San Diego for arid New Mexico. Her father will be working in an Anthropology Department and her mother with rockets in a lab. So it's just Maggie and her collie-cross Jack who will be displaced. Maggie is a seasoned hiker as she and Jack wander off along irrigation channels in Albuquerque, but not without telling her parents where she will be and bringing a pack of essentials including drinkin [...]

    4. Summary: Young Maggie has just moved from California to New Mexico. To her, the move couldn’t have been any more dramatic. Now she has to get used to arid desert with a Native American flair as well as attempting to make new friends. But try as she might, she can’t seem to break into the friendship groups already formed between the neighborhood children, so she finds herself exploring and taking long walks with Jack, not only her dog, but her constant companion and without him she really wou [...]

    5. I really enjoyed the lore and premise behind the story. My only disappointment was that the main character and "savior" was an outsider.

    6. Coyote's Daughter by Corie Weaver is an urban fantasy with deep roots in Native American legends for the middle grade through high school set. In the middle of summer twelve year old Maggie and her family move from San Diego to Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is less than thrilled about the move, but is an experienced hiker and explores her new world with her dog Jake. While exploring around the Rio Grande the pair discover Ash, a strange boy stuck in a trap. After freeing and befriending him Maggi [...]

    7. My copy was provided by Netgalley.Maggie just moved to New Mexico because of her parents. She lost all her friends except for her dog Jack and she isn't sure she wants to make any new ones. To occupy her time, Maggie and Jack explore the woods near her new home. What they discover change their lives forever.One day, they find a boy named Ash who comes from a different world entirely different from Maggie's. In Ash's world, there is magic, shape shifters, and power. Myths and legend come alive in [...]

    8. An Engaging Modern ReinterpretationFor a younger reader it can be hard to read original myth and legend collections. Often the stories are incomplete, allegorical, or ambiguous - which can be frustrating for a reader who is just starting out on more demanding fare. I sometimes think this accounts in part for the popularity of modern books that recast Grimm fairy tales, or rework old Celtic and Arthurian tales. Well, that can be true for Native American, and especially Puebloan, stories. You have [...]

    9. First of all I don't know if I was just too old to appreciate the book for it seems like it may have at one time caught my attention. That and the fact that it reminded me of yet another book that is similar but more related to adult reading while taking place on the Pacific Coast instead of in the Southwest Desert. The idea was charming and original otherwise while bringing in a new type of environment for a genre that has seen plenty of readers. Although it holds similarities to may other book [...]

    10. What a pleasure Coyote’s Daughter was to read. Here is an example of why self-published authors should not be stigmatised and instead given a go. Straight away I was appreciating several elements of the story; being able to see how well written grammar and sentence structure wise it was within the first few pages, being introduced to the main character Maggie and being able to glean an idea of her personality while the story was carried forward as opposed to pausing the narrative to introduce [...]

    11. Maggie loves to hike with her dog, Jack. On a hike she meets a Native American boy, Ash, and gets drawn into the horrible tragedy that's struck his village. Shriveled Corn Man has taken all the villagers and wants to complete his victory by taking something Ash is protecting. Ash, Coyote, and Spider Old Woman task Maggie to help save them all.It was a good story. Native American mythology, religion, and history were treated with respect. But--and I come back to this every time I read a story lik [...]

    12. As an avid sci-fi/fantasy reader, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. With the believable characters and smooth story line I was engrossed in the story so much I could not put the book down. I found Maggie easy to relate to on many levels, and drew similarities between her decisions and my own. This was an easy enjoyable read that can be appreciated by all ages. The ONE thing I would change about this book it seemed to end too quickly. After all the suspense and the long [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this book, yet as I try to write about why, I am finding it difficult to do so without spoiling the plot. It is a journey of adolescent self-discovery with all of the required elements, and the First People's theme makes it a refreshing read. The story moves along in a gentle and entertaining way, and suddenly the book was over and I was left wondering where the time went. Suitable for even the youngest YA readers, this book could easily become a classic.

    14. don't know why it was called coyote's daughter. but anyway. this is a brilliant book that I just happened to find for free on amazony took an hour to finish, but don't let that put you off. as I found this book to be wonderfully original and a bit of fresh air. will be looking forward to more from this author.

    15. I picked it up on a whim. I'm a mythology nut, so when I read the synopsis, I liked the idea, and I wasn't disappointed. It's obvious it's a YA novel, but the plot, mythology and writing's all good enough that I'm giving serious thought to buying the next one(s) in the series. We'll see how my finances pan out in the next couple weeks.

    16. Simple, lovely, vivid. So nice to have a YA fantasy with a female protagonist who isn't dithering over this boy or that boy. Nicely crafted in setting and mythology.
