Everyone’s favorite sword-wielding California girl returns-from the author of Coronets and Steel.

With the man she loves set to marry a look-alike princess, Kim Murray returns to California from the magical country of Dobrenica to heal her broken heart. But family politics soon have her leaving for London, where she is forced into a duel with a Dobrenican nobleman. He reveals that her great sacrifice, leaving Alec, was a disaster. To fix her mistake, Kim returns to Dobrenica, but what she finds there is far more shocking and dangerous than she ever imagined. Not just politics and personalities but ghosts and magic, murder and mystery, await her as she struggles to understand the many faces of love. Once again Kim has to take sword in hand as she tries to make peace and learn the truth. Only, whose truth?


"This fantastic adventure is quite a delight." — Locus

“From the very first page, I was swept into the story.” — Night Owl Reviews

"Blood Spirits is a fully satisfying read, a tale to be savored…. The tangled and engrossing plot (involving vampires, ghostly animals and many of the characters readers loved in the first book) leads inexorably to a stunningly delicious conclusion." — Fresh Fiction

"Sherwood Smith is a world-building genius…. [The] detail didn’t just flesh out the world; it also made the characters and their motivations much more comprehensible." — Fantasy Works
