About the Author

Doranna Durgin is an award-winning author (the Compton Crook for Best First SF/F/H novel) whose quirky spirit has led to an extensive and eclectic publishing journey across genres, publishers, and publishing lines. Beyond that, she hangs around outside her Southwest mountain home with a Lipizzan gelding and highly accomplished competition dogs. She doesn't believe in mastering the beast within, but in channeling its power--for good or bad has yet to be decided! She says, “My books are SF/F, mystery, paranormal romance, & romantic suspense. My world is the Southwest, and my dogs are Beagles!” Doranna’s most recent releases encompass the three books of the Reckoners trilogy--a powerful ghostbuster raised by a spirit, her brilliantly eccentric backup team, a cat who isn't a cat, and a fiercely driven bounty hunter from a different dimension who brings them together when worlds collide. Along with a growing numer of originals, these Smashwords editions are author presentations of favorites once found on bookstore shelves.

Don’t miss out on this unique and fascinating fantasy. The tortured hero is ordered to kill his murdered king’s nephews, instead of finding his beloved king’s murderer. The world building is fabulous, the characters well drawn, and the plot keeps the pages turning.

694 nook pages. Excellent story of a man who will go to great lengths to avenge a murdered king. Plenty of action, sorcery, and court intrigue. Dont miss reading this one

Straight forward; not many surprising twists, just enough to keep it interesting; slight hint of romance.

The neighboring countries of Solvany and Therand have long been separated from each other by an almost impassable wasteland known as the Barrenlands. Created by magic, the rift strips sanity from any non-royal person who steps across its boundary without special dispensation from one of the royal families. Getting trade goods from one country to the other has evolved into a tidily profitable market for a few brave traders willing to make the long and treacherous journey through the mountains to the east. Tradition has it that the Barrenlands keep peace between the two countries, but when tentative negotiations seem to spell the end of centuries old hostility, it threatens a fragile balance -- and a profitable sideline. Solvany's king, and the majority of the royal guard are slaughtered. The question of just who is to blame takes Ehren, the only surviving guard, on a journey that may cost him his life, or, if he's lucky, gain him something more precious.A good story which starts with a bang and then lags a bit. Although clumsily plotted in places, it shows promise. I was reminded of Mercedes Lackey's early series. I will definitely look for more from this author.

I am really enjoying this series. This one is the beginning of the story so a prequile. I read this after Dun Lady Jess cause I didn't find it until after. It's ok. Doesn't mess anything up. Might have confused me if I'd read it first.

Boring plot and characters you could not care less about.
