“Doranna Durgin envelops her appealing characters with a rare, shimmering aura of mystic legend.”
Magic has never been a part of Reandn’s life. Almost gone from Keland when he was born, there is no trace of it left by the time he patrols the Keep lands as an elite King’s Wolf.
*Magic has never been a part of Reandn’s life.* Until the people under his care start dying. Until the threat extends to his family-and then turns on him. Someone, somewhere, is trying to draw magic back into Keland, and they don’t care what-or who-is destroyed in the process.
But Reandn does.
“[Durgin] has a magic touch for creating rich fantasy.”
–Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
“I loved Touched by Magic and was sorry to see it end.”
“Mystery, suspense, and loyalty fill out the plot, but primarily this novel focuses on the dangers of obsession. it also deals hauntingly with loss: of loved ones, of home and status, of entire ways of life…. It will keep you guessing right to the end, and there are no simple solutions to the complex problems presented.”
“It’s been years since I read this. I remember I loved it…Mostly, I remember the characters – because rich characterization is one of Durgin’s best skills. One of many, of course – she also writes great action scenes, and moves the plot along briskly. I can’t wait to read this again!” –B&N Reader
“An excellent read! Touched by Magic has a Game of Thrones quality, combining gritty realism with ethereal fantasy in a rich and suspenseful journey of a man haunted by the past.” –B&N Reader
“I LOVED Touched by Magic! Doranna Durgin is one of those rare and gifted fantasy authors who create vibrant characters you really, really care about. I’d give this book ten stars if I could.” –B&N Reader

About the Author
Doranna Durgin is an award-winning author whose quirky spirit has led to an extensive publishing journey across genres, publishers, and publishing lines. Fantasy, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, Mystery, a batch of tie-in books and a smattering of Science Fiction in both novel and short story forms--you can find them all in her fifty-plus titles, always with a special nod to the animals and natural world we all love. She's best known for the Changespell series featuring former equine Jess, and her most recent release completes 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.
Beyond that, she hangs around outside her mountain home with horse and 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, and romantic suspense. My dogs are Beagles, my home is the Southwest, and the horse wants a cookie!”
