Waiting on Wednesday: Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.


I’ve been waiting on this book for months! I can’t wait to get my hands on it! Also, FYI- I found this book cover image via a Google search, so I’m not sure if this is the final version.


Title & Author: Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith

Genre: Fantasy Lite (according to me)

Publication Date: September 6, 2011

Description: 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?

Why I’m Stoked: I read and loved Sherwood Smith’s Coronets and Steel, which I read earlier this year. This book left me on a killer cliffhanger, and I’m seriously DYING to find out what happens!! Gah! If you love a dash of history and a whole heap of lovin in your fantasy, then I would definitely check out Coronets and Steel pronto! :)

    I haven’t heard of this, but it seems like a good read! I hate it when books have a cliffhanger, but you have to wait so long until the next book comes out. Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!

      Cliffhangers really are rough, but if the pay off is good, then I can forgive that a little! 😉
