The Reckoners: 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, otherworldly bounty hunter turned battered exile, all of whom now face the consequences of their tangled worlds....
Lisa "Garrie" McGarrity just fought a battle of cataclysmic energies alongside a man who turned out to be not from this world at all. Now she no longer seems quite familiar to herself...or quite under control. But she'd better figure it out fast, because she and her ghostbusting reckoners team have detoured to Sedona, where a friend desperately needs occult assistance--and where fiercely driven, half-human bounty hunter Trevarr keeps glancing inexplicably over his shoulder.
It doesn't help that the intense ethereal breezes and vortexes of the Red Rocks have gone utterly silent--and that the regional ghosts, when they do appear, are targeting Garrie.
With a rogue entity on the loose, Trevarr's not-cat bond partner also hinting at dire trouble on their trail, and Trevarr himself resting uneasily on exile, Garrie is running out of time to figure out just what's happening to herself--and to the Southwest--and to put a stop it it.
"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."
"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..."

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 Smashwords editions are author presentations of favorites once found on bookstore shelves.

Reckoner Lisa "Garrie" McGarrity knows her crew (Lucia Reyes the spiritual empath, Drew Ely the ethereal historian and Quinn Rossiter the supernatural researcher) will be there for her through thick and thin especially when encounters from beyond occur. She believes that even with Drew leaving the team to work with his new girlfriend in San Diego. They travel to Sedona, Arizona to deal with out of control spirits, but humans interfere with their investigation. However, also Garrie wonders about the odd bounty hunter Trevarr who is in Sedona and his even more curious Abyssinian cat Skylane. She thinks he conceals something from her. She wonders why he refuses to leave especially when he has to know how obstinate Garrie can be on an inquiry. Yet he remains with her and her BFFs. Ironically Garrie has been in the haunting business for over fifteen years (see The Reckoning for more background), but is still learning on the job especially what she cannot do. Part of her doubts comes from recent assignments but also Trevarr from entering her life. Her teammates are fully developed especially Lucia as this exciting energetic cavernous fantasy leaves the audience breathless with the heroine and her crew struggling with a paranormal battle when they need R&R while she is somewhat distracted by Trevarr. Stay tuned for there is more to come. Harriet Klausner
