Doranna Durgin

Dun Lady's Jess

Dun Lady's Jess: all woman, all heart…all horse.When hikers Dayna and Eric find a naked and terrified young woman, they're sure she's the victim of foul play. But the truth is much more shocking: she isn't human at all. She's Dun Lady's Jess, a horse transformed into this new shape by the spell that brought her and her rider, to whom she is utterly devoted, into this world.Possessed now of human intelligence but still a horse deep inside, Jess desperately searches this world for her master and rider, using her fiery equine spirit to take on human idiosyncrasies--and human threats.Other books in this series: Barrenlands, Changespell, Changespell LegacyWinner of the Compton Crook Award for Best First SF/F/H; with special forward by Elizabeth Moon, and brand new remarks from Jess's second edition editor, Julie Czerneda &quote;….Dun Lady's Jess is unique. Durgin has created a character who is utterly believable as both horse and horse-in-human-body… She cannot be, any longer, just another mare…she cannot be, ever, just another woman….&quote; --Excerpt from Elizabeth Moon's Forward for Dun Lady's Jess &quote;A thrill ride with a fantasy twist, neatly done by a knowledgeable author — short, sweet, and paced at a gallop, Dun Lady's Jess can't help but to win you over.&quote; --Janny Wurts &quote;Horses, heroics, and magic--a great combination! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dun Lady's Jess, a spirited and daring novel. I couldn't put it down.&quote; --Kristen Britain, author of the Green Rider series &quote;Dun Lady's Jess is everything a great fantasy ought to be: Exciting, moving, and utterly original.&quote; --David Coe, author of Winds of the LonTobyn Chronicle &quote;Jess is a tale of wonderfully diverse and riveting characters embroiled in extraordinary events, told with a deftness and care few authors can achieve.&quote; --Diana Pharoah Francis, author of Path of Blood &quote;Dun Lady's Jess is an adventure story with heart. It's a unique idea, imaginatively explored. The characters are charming, and humanly flawed… Doranna Durgin offers the reader an unusual viewpoint of impressive versimilitude.&quote; --Vonda McIntyre, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author of The Moon and the Sun &quote;Durgin never fails to entertain with solid characters, good action, well-conceived plots, compelling narrative — and her expert background in horses always provides a real — and realistic! — treat for readers. Jess is one of the most complex and likeable characters in fantasy fiction.&quote; --Jennifer Roberson, author of the Sword Dancer series
