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.

I think this was the first Doranna Durgin book I ever read and I got the title from a list of 'best Fantasy' ever from a forum I came across.
I loved this story. The dogs/dog behaviour and human/dog interactions were realistic and engaging. The characters were well drawn and the mystery and magic were believable. The development of the story was really well paced. All in all, a great read.

Really enjoyed this book. It was good entertainment. Well developed central character; realistic portrayal of dogs and the grooming business. Ending was maybe a little too tidy - but it is good not be left hanging.
This is the first Doranna Durgin book I have read - I will be buying others.

A wonderful fantasy adventure about true love, sacrifice and bonding with dogs, as well as the nature of good and evil and its impact on how we live our lives. Brenna's dogs Druid and Sunny will definitely tug at your heart strings.
