A Nook First Book: “Compelling Reads from Authors You Need to Know.”

One man loses everything to magic–and will do anything to prevent it from taking over his world.

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.

“Doranna Durgin envelops her appealing characters with a rare, shimmering aura of mystic legend.”
Romantic Times

“[Durgin] has a magic touch for creating rich fantasy.”
–Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

“I loved Touched by Magic and was sorry to see it end.”
–S.M. Stirling

“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.”
Hypatia’s Hoard

“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

“If you love Game of Thrones, you’ll love Touched by Magic. As with Game of Thrones, the magic doesn’t overwhelm the story and the characters; it enriches them. Durgin populates her fantasy world with people we care about deeply, because they feel so real. VERY highly recommended!” –Kindle 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

“The setting in this book is so real you can all but smell it. The characters are vividly painted. The mystery keeps you turning pages long after dark. There are two books in the King’s Wolf Saga. Get them both because you’re not going to want to let Reandn go after the first one.” –Kindle Reader
