Lisa McGarrity lives to hunt ghosts.With the able assistance of her loyal ghostbusting team, of course . . . and the unexpected powers of Trevarr, a fiercely driven demon-hunter from another dimension. Their last mission—a supposedly simple haunting that turned into a demonic free-for-all—left them battered and ready for some R&R. But rest has to wait. Garrie and her team are summoned by an old friend in Sedona who desperately needs some occult assistance. Making matters worse, Trevarr has reappeared, bloody and bruised . . . and exiled forever from his homeworld.While happy to have Trevarr back at her side, Garrie is shocked to discover that Sedona’s ethereal breezes are quiet, the usual paranormal activity nearly nonexistant . . . except for some oddball power surges that don’t “taste” like our world at all. Then Garrie’s friend disappears and all hell seems about to break loose as Sedona’s ghosts rise up against Garrie and her team. With Trevarr’s not-cat bond-partner hinting at dire trouble on their trail and Trevarr himself seeing enemies at every turn, Garrie is running out of time to figure out just what’s happening in the Southwest…and to put a stop to it.

Praise for The Reckoners:“Heart, adventure, and buckets of wonder. The Reckoners is what I've been waiting for—a fast-paced urban fantasy romp that sizzles, amazes, and utterly enchants. Don't miss it!"—Julie E. Czerneda, author of Rift in the Sky“Doranna Durgin assembles a fascinating cast of characters, including a strong but imperfect heroine, a mysterious hero oozing sex appeal (and he wears leather!), as well as humans and nonhumans alike. With a marvelous setting and a sit-up-late-at-night urgency, The Reckoners is certain to carry readers along at a break-neck pace that is nonetheless savored all the way.”—Jennifer Roberson, author of the Karavans series “The Reckoners blends ghostbusting, aliens, a mysterious stranger, a fiesty heroine, and world-shaking danger to create a fast-paced story that is an exciting addition to the paranormal romance genre. Doranna Durgin's trademark of characters who have quirks and heart in equal measure is evident here, but my favorite character is Sklayne, the not-cat, who should win the Critter Sidekick Award. Ghosts, aliens, danger, romance, and a not-cat. As Lisa McGarrity might say, what's not to like?”—Anne Bishop, author of the Black Jewels series
DORANNA DURGIN spent her childhood filling notebooks first with stories and art, and then with novels. After obtaining a degree in wildlife illustration and environmental education, she spent a number of years deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Dun Lady's Jess, Doranna's first published fantasy novel, received the 1995 Compton Crook/Stephen Tall Award for the best first book in the fantasy, science fiction, and horror genres. When she's not writing, Doranna builds web pages, wanders around outside with a camera, and works with horses and dogs.
