Overview

Dun Lady’s Jess–all horse, all woman, all heart…and the only one left who can save her disintegrating world from magic gone awry.

“…A splendid example of how speculative fiction can let us deal with difficult topics at a safe remove. It’s not preachy, it’s not heavy- handed, it’s just a wonderful picture of people screwing things up and then trying to unscrew them…. Most highly recommended.”
–Hypatia’s Hoard
~~~~~

Arlen of Anfeald is dead–or so his friends believe, for Camolen’s Council of Wizards has been cut down in a treacherous ambush of twisted magic…and the only surviving witness is a palomino stallion named Ramble.

Convinced that the twisted magic is a threat to all of Camolen, Carey--Anfeald’s Head Courier–-plans to question the palomino, using the now--forbidden spell that can change a horse into a human. This is the same spell that once turned Dun Lady’s Jess from horse to human as it took her from one world to another–-from Camolen to the American Midwest.

But once Cary, Jess, and the palomino leave Camolen, racing to obtain the crucial information that can save their world, the damaging magic spreads, blossoming to engulf the unwary and corrupting even the simplest of spells.

Even the spell that can take them home...

Praise for Changespell:

“Doranna Durgin is one of the freshest new voices in fantasy fiction. Her style is clean, uncluttered, and effortless. Changespell is a full-bore, straight-ahead, fast and furious read. I want more!”
–Jennifer Roberson, author of the Karavans and Sword Dancer series

“Durgin tells this deeply insightful and touching tale with a deft clarity. Her eye for detail will delight and astonish you…”
–Hypatia’s Hoard

Praise for Dun Lady’s Jess:

“….Dun Lady’s Jess is unique. Durgin has created a character who is utterly believable as both horse and horse-in-human-body. The setup is brilliant: the magic that causes the transformation is not in the horse, but external, and the creature that is Dun Lady’s Jess must adapt, must find an identity that works in both paradigms. Humans who encounter her, in either body, must also adapt to the reality that created her and that she represents. She cannot be, any longer, just another mare…she cannot be, ever, just another woman….”
–Excerpt from Elizabeth Moon’s Forward for Dun Lady’s Jess

“A thrill ride with a fantasy twist, neatly done by a knowledgeable author – short, sweet, and paced at a gallop, Dun Lady’s Jess can’t help but to win you over.”
–Janny Wurts

“Horses, heroics, and magic–a great combination! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dun Lady’s Jess, a spirited and daring novel. I couldn’t put it down.”
–Kristen Britain, author of the Green Rider series

“Dun Lady’s Jess is a wonderful read for those who are horse fans and those who are just plain fantasy fans or fans of great writing.”
–Josepha Sherman, bestselling author/editor

“Dun Lady’s Jess is everything a great fantasy ought to be: Exciting, moving, and utterly original. Doranna Durgin has spun a marvelous tale, set it in a world that feels as real as our own, and populated that world with characters who will stay with you long after you read the final page. An excellent book, which I highly recommend.”
–David Coe, author of Winds of the Forelands & the LonTobyn Chronicle

“Jess is a tale of wonderfully diverse and riveting characters embroiled in extraordinary events, told with a deftness and care few authors can achieve. Once you begin, you won’t be able to put it down until you know what happens — and then you’ll wish it never stopped. I highly recommend it.”
–Diana Pharoah Francis, author of Path of Blood

Meet the Author

Doranna's quirkiness of spirit has led to an eclectic publishing journey since that her first award-winning novel, spanning genres over 40 novels (and climbing) to include mystery, SF/F, action-romance, paranormal, franchise, and a slew of essays and short stories.

Beyond that, mostly she still prefers to hang around outside her New Mexico mountain home with the animals, riding dressage on her Lipizzan and training for performance sports with the dogs. She doesn't believe so much in mastering the beast within, but in channeling its power. For good or bad has yet to be decided...

Along with the occasional original, these PubIt editions are author presentations of favorites once found on bookstore shelves.

    Really -- a marvelous series.  I read these books in paperback (they are stored in my basement) and now have purchased them for Nook.  Durgin's characters are well-rounded and solid and her created world believable and consistent.  I recommend these book to anyone interested in a  well-written, enjoyable story.  In fact -- I've enjoyed ALL of her books!
