I really enjoyed this fantasy novel. I got is as a free Kindle book and will be buying the rest in the series - this does stand on its own as a novel though. The characters are believable and, as the story progresses, you do care what happens to them. The more you learn about Reandn's marriage the more you want him to find Adela. There is enough in the way of politics and history in the back story to make the setting interesting and help bring the story to life. Excellent book!

Doranna Durgin is a mid-list author who deserves much better and if there is any justice at all in the writing world, she'll get it.
Keland is a land where the magic has disappeared, taken away by the unicorns when the main character, Reandn, was a mere lad. Now, years later, Reandn is a Wolf, one of the kings guards, and he is investigating the mysterious disappearance of a young boy from the King's Keep. Reandn doesn't find anything but, while he is searching, he is hit my a roaring in his head that leaves him disoriented. It is later found out that the roaring in his head is an allergy to magic. Someone in Keland has found magic again.
As the story progresses, another boy disappears. Then Travan, the magicians apprentice and Reandn's and Adela's (Reandn's wife) adopted son, disappears. Adela's best friend, Elyn, disappears. Finally, Adela herself disappears. Each time there was a disappearance, Reandn had one of his mysterious bouts of roaring in his head.
When his wife disappears, Reandn finds the evil that is behind the disappearances. Before he can act, he is transported by magic to the far outskirts of Keland where he is left for dead. Magic was supposed to be dead. Reandn meets up with the one woman who believes his story fully, Rethia, who holds the key to the return of magic. But Reandn will do anything to prevent the return of magic to Keland, magic that destroyed his life.
Doranna Durgin is a bright star on the edge of the fantasy universe that deserves all the attention she is going to get.

Very interesting. It's a fantasy chase, a man on a mission to get revenge/save his world. The idea of of setting which just lost its magic is imaginative and works well for the story. It's very good.

Ms Durgin has created a magical read in this book. She has produced a book I will remember for some time to come with her wonderful characters .
The story is all about obsession, and loyalty and mystery. It's topped by great action and the ability to make fantasy seem very real.

I like romance and I like fantasy I don't like reading other peoples sexual fantasies or mushy stuff. This combined great story with good pros and left me wanting more what could more could any reader ask for. I really hope the Unicorn part is expanded.

Reandn's a Wolf, one of the elite group of trackers/soldiers/patrollers, who's put in charge of an investigation concerning the disappearances of two young boys in a time when magic has left the world--or so everyone thinks. Then Reandn's adopted son, Kavan, vanishes, and Reandn's wife Adela is destroyed by the same magic that killed the boys. Reandn, transported to a far distant land by the wizard who killed Adela, Kavan, and the other boys for power, swears revenge on the wizard who destroyed his life. Then he finds out that the very magic that killed his wife and son is going to be brought back into the world...
TOUCHED BY MAGIC is a well-written, tightly crafted novel with fresh, engaging characters and a terrific plot. The author deserves to be placed among such fantasy greats as Mercedes Lackey and David Eddings.
