The Reckoners: Reckoners Trilogy, Book 1

Free sample

The Reckoners (Author Cut): A powerful ghostbuster raised by a spirit, her brilliantly eccentric backup team, a cat who isn't a cat at all...and a fiercely driven bounty hunter from a different dimension who brings them together when worlds collide.

"Heart, adventure, and buckets of wonder." --Julie Czerneda, Aurora-winning author of the Reunification Trilogy

Skilled ghosthunter Lisa "Garrie" McGarrity not only sees dead people, she wrangles them into submission. But her beloved ghostly mentor moved on years ago, and the Southwest has gone quiet under Garrie's hand. Garrie and her team have grown restless and...well, face it. Maybe willing to take a risk or two.

So when the relentlessly mysterious and fiercely driven Trevarr (and his not-cat!) shows up asking for help, Garrie is inclined to listen. And when he describes big trouble at the San Jose Winchester Mystery House, she's inclined to go with him, even if it splits her team along the way.

But she doesn't expect a mansion crammed with spirits on the brink of madness, and she doesn't expect to face off against the powerful and unfamiliar energies of semi-ethereal beings from another dimension. She definitely doesn't expect the fabric of her own world to unravel around her--with no one but her to stop it.

And truly, she has no idea how deep Trevarr's secrets run.

"The Reckoners is certain to carry readers along at a break-neck pace that is nonetheless savored along the way." --Jennifer Roberson, author of the Karavans series.

"Ghosts, aliens, danger, romance, and a non-cat.  As Lisa McGarrity might say, what's not to like?" --Anne Bishop, author of the Black Jewels series

"Heroic figures with problems even bigger than they are." --Jacqueline Lichtenberg, The Monthly Aspectarian

"Readers will enjoy the humorous dialogue and ghost-busting lingo..." --Publisher's Weekly

"THE RECKONERS is an original paranormal adventure which will fuel your imagination on every page." --Single Titles

"Delightful beginning to a new series that's funny and lively with a memorable cast of characters." --Fresh Fiction

"Doranna Durgin makes her mark with her new urban fantasy series, THE RECKONERS. The delicious debut titled, THE RECKONERS, features a topnotch ghost-hunting team, a tracker from another world, his mysterious sidekick, and all sorts of paranormal activity. The pacing is excellent and the plot engaging. Ms. Durgin’s word-building is edgy and she provides some interesting takes on supernatural elements. Overall, the central mystery is complex, the action plentiful, and the developing relationship between the protagonists satisfying....  It is an exceptional read." --Romance Junkies

"Like all of Durgin's books, Reckoners has glorious 3D characters. It has all the joy of Ghostbusters, all the incredible monsters of the paranormal, and a delightful romance that never lets you down. Durgin deftly avoids cliché, and builds a rock-solid high-tension story. Best of all, it comes with an excellent twist at the end that will leave you begging for more." --Adrianne, a reader

"THE RECKONERS is the first release in Ms. Durgin's new ghost buster series. It is an original and fresh take on the spiritual world and is intense from page one. I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters and the sexual tension between Trevarr and Garrie is extreme. I look forward to more in this series from Ms. Durgin." --The Romance Reader's Connection

"Doranna Durgin begins a new urban fantasy series with The Reckoners, featuring feisty heroine and ghost hunter Lisa McGarrity known to her friends as Garrie. At age ten she learned of her talent to corral and manage ghosts. Rhonda Rose, a ghost, helped her to understand and develop her abilities. Now she heads a team of three: the empath Lucia, Drew who can sense the history of a place, and Quinn who ferrets out data they need...Durgin takes the reader on a wild ride with plenty of twists and turns." --Mel Jacobs at SFRevu

The Wolverine’s Daughter is hard-tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile Keturan mountains; she knows nothing of the Outlands, or of her father...or of the curse behind her puzzling clumsiness. But she’s about to find out what it means to visit those Outlands...and they’re about to find out what it means to have her.

"When a sword and sorcery book begins with humor, it's fairly well guaranteed to be an excellent read.... This book whips along with impressive fight choreography, excellent background descriptions, and fascinating plotlines."

Kelyn of Ketura.

Daughter of a legendary warrior who left the mountains before she was born. Brave. Strong. Tempered by her struggle to survive in the hostile, craggy Keturan mountains. And plagued by moments of enormous and puzzling clumsiness.

"Find your father," the local wisewoman tells her. "To find your true self, find the Wolverine."

Angered by his abandonment, Kelyn doesn't care about her father--but the lure of adventure in the Out Lands calls to her, just as it called to the Wolverine before her, and she accepts the challenge.

New languages, new weapons. Magic. Witch hunts. The treacheries of civilization. She doesn't know just how much of a challenge it'll be.

"With this new book, Doranna Durgin ventures into classic sword & sorcery -- and turns the subgenre upside down..... I like Kelyn, who could kick Red Sonya's steel bikini-clad butt from introduction to epilogue. Fantasy fans in general will love this book, but it has extra appeal for feminists and for warriors of the female persuasion."
--Hypatia's Hoard 

Intégrale de la série "Les griffes de l'ombre" de Doranna Durgin.

Le chasseur des ténèbres - Tome 1
Surgi de l'ombre, l'homme s'avance vers elle avec la souplesse d'un félin et, de sa voix de basse, la conjure d'accepter sa protection... Pourtant, en dépit des dangers dont elle se sent entourée, Meghan refuse de le suivre et réprime avec peine sa colère. Comment ose-t-il se présenter devant elle ? Comment prétend-il la protéger, alors que lui et ceux de son clan ont laissé sa mère se faire tuer en dérobant aux forces du mal un manuscrit aux pouvoirs maléfiques ? D'autant que rien, absolument rien ne lui garantit que cet homme aux yeux d'or ne poursuit pas le même but que ses ennemis : découvrir grâce à elle le lieu secret où sa mère, avant de mourir, a dissimulé le précieux grimoire...

L'appel du crépuscule - Tome 2
Debout devant la demeure de Joe Ryan, Lyn songe à la mission dont ses chefs l'ont chargée : gagner la confiance de cet homme, et prouver qu'il a tué son coéquipier et trahi son clan - leur clan - pour rejoindre les forces du mal. Mais brusquement la porte s'ouvre, et Lyn découvre le visage de celui qu'elle est venue confondre. Impressionnant, puissant, il la domine de sa haute taille et la scrute de son regard clair. Un regard auquel Lyn, troublée, tente tant bien que mal de se soustraire. Car un sentiment étrange vient de naître en elle, une pulsion incompréhensible et terriblement dangereuse qui la pousse vers Ryan et risque de faire d'elle sa proie...

Dans les pas du loup - Tome 3

Mais bientôt elle chasse l'espoir fou qui grandissait en elle, pour revenir à la réalité crue de sa destinée brisée : elle n'est qu'une louve sauvage, enlevée à sa meute par un sorcier malfaisant. Une créature hybride, mi-bête mi-humaine, née dans un laboratoire et dressée pour tuer... Et même si Nick vient à bout de son tortionnaire, leurs routes se sépareront bientôt. Car sa place est loin d'ici, auprès de sa meute, et jamais elle ne sera capable, comme Nick, de vivre dans le monde des humains, cruel et corrompu...
