The Reckoners: A powerful ghostbuster raised by a spirit, her brilliantly eccentric backup team, a cat who isn't a cat at all--and an otherworldly, fiercely driven Keharian bounty hunter turned battered exile, all of whom now face the consequences of their tangled worlds....

Half-breed bounty hunter Trevarr is gone, captured by the Ghehera Tribunal and in the hands of a resentful former companion who will stop at nothing to extract the name of his clandestine partner: Lisa “Garrie” McGarrity, Southwest Reckoner.

Garrie hunts Trevarr with grim intent, determined to find him in spite of the danger. But reckoner teammates Quinn, Drew, and Lucia want her focused on the rising ethereal threats at home, any one of which spells disaster of the cataclysmic kind.

Garrie knows in her heart what her team doesn’t—that Trevarr barely survives, that he needs help—and that they all need him just as much as she does, if they’re to have any chance of stopping the massive invader hunkered invisibly over the mountain beside Garrie’s New Mexico home—trapped, wounded, and infinitely more dangerous than it ought to be.

If only Ghehera doesn’t find them all first.

Praise for The Reckoners:

"Heart, adventure, and buckets of wonder."
--Julie Czerneda, author of Rift in the Sky

"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 Others series

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.

"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.

"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.

I look forward to more in this series from Ms. Durgin." --The Romance Reader's Connection

Prozac & Exotica in a Tattoo Parlor is a modern, urban fairy-tale that takes you on a dream-like, surreal, yet raw and edgy journey through a concrete jungle. Elements of children's stories that entranced us in our childhood magically emerge within a present day urban dwelling. The lives of a dominatrix, a tattoo artist, a singer and a journalist are about to collide.
The story begins at sunset as Mia is grieving the loss of her kindred spirit, who has suddenly passed away. Mia's best friend, Susanna, left her an artistic, scrapbook called the "The Healing Passage." Each page represents a day, and gives Mia a mission helping her to learn to live life without Susanna. On the first day, she is told to go to breakfast at a local cafe. Reluctantly, Mia goes, and ends up running into an old friend, who claims that Susanna sent him a postcard telling him to meet her there for breakfast on that day.
Meanwhile, another damsel in distress is spiraling out of control. Liz is detoxing from her addiction to Prozac, which she accidentally left behind at the Tattoo Parlor she manages. As she sings, imprisoned by her mind is a pre-war tower, a passerby stops to listen to her breathtaking voice. James is instantly mesmerized by the hypnotizing melody and decides he must meet this lady who sings such beautiful sorrow. He finds a way into her building and meets Liz, who orders him to fetch her Prozac that she left at the Tattoo Parlor.
This is only the beginning. Each character receive letters from Susanna after her death. As these artists' lives intertwine, romance blooms and the characters begin to discover that Susanna must be guiding their spirits from beyond the grave for a deeper purpose.

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."
--Kliatt
~~~

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."
