    “Ghost hunter Lisa McGarrity can’t understand what’s gotten into the undead recently. Ectoplasm-flinging spirits and ghouls with grudges seem to be coming out of the woodwork, and she’s been run ragged trying to calm the unusually outraged spirits. Tired of dealing with the disgruntled dead, Lisa is determined to take a break from all things metaphysical.

    So when the mysterious and sexy Trevarr appears on her doorstep requesting her assistance in an urgent matter, Lisa is less than thrilled. Who is this man, and why is he so interested in her “kooky” hobby? What does he have to gain by visiting paranormal hot spots with her? Whatever he wants, Lisa can’t help being drawn to Trevarr, and as they start working together they stumble upon a house filled to the brim with ghosts driven to the edge of madness. Now Lisa and Trevarr must figure out what’s behind this ghost population explosion, before their mutual attraction causes explosions of its own.”

    My Thoughts:

    I really enjoyed this book. It’s a great mix of Urban Fantasy and a bit of Sci-Fi and Paranormal Romance. Garrie and her Reckoner crew were a blast to read about. Trevarr and Sklayne were definitely original, fun and interesting! And it didn’t hurt that Trevarr is all alpha and sinfully sexy! Garrie’s a fire cracker and I liked her dedication and courage.

    The plot and pacing, the characters, the scenes and the conflict and resolution were all really well written. The only thing that I felt could’ve used a bit more development is the dialogue. I found it to be a bit stinted at times, but I enjoyed the story. I’m hoping there’s going to be more books in this series with these characters! (I just saw on Amazon that Reckoners Book 2 is due out in December 2010 – sweet!)

    Doranna Durgin is the author of several Paranormal Romances, TV/Movie tie in’s and Romance novels. I believe that The Reckoners is her first Urban Fantasy, (I could be wrong), but I loved it. Find out more about Doranna and her books at her website.
