Lisa "Garrie" McGarrity is young woman once mentored by a ghost who now leads a ghostbuster team--all of whom are recently entangled with Trevarr, a fiercely driven demon-hunter from a different dimension.  After tumultuous adventures in San Jose, the team finds themselves much changed and struggling to adjust, while Trevarr returns to this world--and to Garrie--a battered exile.

But Garrie and her team don't head for home; Quinn Rossiter has a lady friend in Sedona who needs their help.  There, in that area of power convergence, Garrie is astonished to find the ethereal breezes quiet, the earth's activity so diminished as to be nonexistent...if you don't count those oddball surges that don't taste like our world at all.  Soon enough, Quinn's skeptical friend soon goes missing...soon enough, their efforts to contain the situation go amazingly awry.  With Trevarr wary and alert, his opinionated not-cat bond partner dropping dire hints of trouble on their trail, Sedona ghosts rising to act out against Garrie wherever she goes, and one living Keharian ethereal breeze detector gone completely amuck and on the loose, she has only just so much time to figure out what's going on before the power plays are too much even for this one-of-a-kind reckoner and her otherworldly partner







 

"Storm of Reckoning broadens Garrie's understanding of herself and what she can handle, leaving readers with a big cliffhanger that is sure to open even more potential paths for her and her team. Durgin deftly focuses on the question of what love can conquer."
--Romantic Times

"It simply amazes me how much action Durgin can pack into so few pages without losing sight of the goal at hand."

--Night Owl Reviews

"The sequel to The Reckoners, Storm of Reckoning continues the saga of Lisa McGarrity (Garrie) and the alien Trevarr, along with assorted friends and the non-cat Sklayne who assumes the appearance of an Abyssinian feline. An urgent summons from Quinn, one of Garrie's team of reckoners, takes them to Sedona to find his friend Robin. They find themselves amidst a storm of ghosts, a dying countryside, and murder....Durgin has created a rip-roaring adventure..."

"...Leaves the audience breathless..."

"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, an Amazon 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."
