Editorial Reviews


“Smith’s story moves along at a pleasant pace…. The period in which the novel is set is more than interesting enough.”
(RT Book Reviews)

"Revenant Eve works on two fronts: as a terrific time travel thriller and as a Dobrenica entry (see Coronets and Steel and Blood Spirits). The mentor and the mentee are fully developed so that the trials and tribulations of both seem genuine.... Fans will relish this exhilarating thriller while newcomers will find this a fine taste of Dobrenica."
(Midwest Book Review)

"Recalling The Count of Monte Cristo and The Prisoner of Zenda in plot and theme, this cross-world fantasy/romance should appeal to YA and adult fans of the genre."
(Library Journal (for Dobrenica series))

"History aficionado and champion fencer Aurelia Kim Murray investigates her taciturn grandmother's European roots and her own identity in Smith's sweeping, feminist Ruritanian romance....Kim is thrust into the complicated and potentially deadly politics of a small, haunted kingdom threatened equally by its neighbors as by its scheming ruling families. Smith engages readers with humor and rapier-sharp wit, and extensive details from Central European history…make the nation of Dobrenica terrifically real.... A lively heroine, mysterious ghosts, and a complex and intricate plot."
(Publishers Weekly (for Dobrenica series))

"This is a rousing adventure of doubles, political intrigue, and doomed romance.... Quaint customs, handsome noblemen of uncertain trustworthiness, intrigues, and a rather backward country where cell phones and the Internet refuse to work provide the necessary Old World backdrop, while more ghosts and hints of other supernatural doings add a welcome soupçon of fantasy (and a hint of Brigadoon). It’s a delightful romp, with just enough loose ends to leave some hope that the doomed romance might not be so doomed after all."
(Locus (for Dobrenica series))

"Kim is a brash, bold and utterly irreverent character as she confronts a variety of situations outside the scope of her experience and frequently preserveres. Fast pacing bolstered by a broad range of occasionally predictable twists and turns, this lighthearted fantasy with just a touch of romance and magic will leave readers wondering what’s next for Kim."
(Monsters & Critics (for Dobrenica series))

Kim Murray is sidetracked on her way to a meeting to plan her marriage to the soon to be Crown Prince of Dobrenica and becomes a duppy to Aurelie, her ancestor in the Napoleonic era. A duppy is a spirit guide, not a ghost. But that is the easiest way to think of her. There are adventures in the Caribbean, in England, in France, especially in Paris and on the way to Dobrenica. There is a battle with demons to determine the future of Dobrenica. This is a difficult book to characterize. On the hand it is a coming of age and romance story about Aurelie. On the other hand it is a quest for Kim. On the gripping hand, it is a historical adventure set in a very interesting age where you get to meet some very interesting and important characters. There is a lot of appeal to the period, the geographic setting and the action that takes place. But, I didn't give it 5 stars. That is because the very nature of the concept puts us on the wrong side of the looking glass all too often. We are removed from the action. The person who most important to us because of the two previous books in this series is essentially a powerless observer for most of the book, asleep for years on end. The result to me was that I had a feeling of disconnection, a lack of emotional involvement and a sense of anomie. This is the difference to me between a 4 star and a 5 star rating.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I looked forward to this one and, while it was well-written as usual, it was not my favorite. The first 2 books in this trio ... Coronets and Steel and Blood Spirits were a kick and a half! Lots of action (loved the swordplay!), plenty of humor, creepy characters both alive and dead, and love lost and found were great fun! This book chucked the heroine of the first two books, into a very different time-travelling, half-ghostly dimension where she was more an observer of events than the active participant. It was an interesting trick of the trade, and while the new protagonist was interesting ... I felt the story dragged at times until well toward the last couple of chapters. Perhaps this book is best read BEFORE you read the first two books in this series.

Generally, I love Sherwood Smith's work. This one ... not quite so much.

OK, the title is a little misleading. If you are a horror fan, like me, the word "revenant" conjures up vengeful spirits, out for blood (cue scary music). While this book does involve spirits, demons, vampires and betrayals, that is not what this story is about.
Imagine, being called out of your body and sent into the past. So that you can be a guiding and protective spirit to a girl who, if you can't convince her to go to Dobrenica, the country will never have existed for you to go to and find your love. We have a wild child sent from Jamaica, to England. Her mother is a rather successful pirate and her father was an escaped slave. Unfortunately, when these facts are discovered, her relatives that are supposed to be protecting her take the entire family on a trip to Paris and abandon her, after taking her dowry money. She is left abandoned and alone in Dieppe, France, shortly after the revolution. Her education and upbringing in England over the past years, unfortunately brand her as a possible member of the hated nobility. Luckily, she is able to get an introduction to Josephine and joins the Bonaparte household for a time. Sherwood Smith does a wonderful job of reminding us that history is not just about dates and facts, but about people.
This is the third book of the Dobrenica series. While it does work very well as a stand-alone, I would recommend reading the others of this series as well. If you enjoy historical fiction, with a good bit of fantasy thrown in, you will really enjoy this book. Have fun reading! © Night Owl Reviews - [...]

I really enjoy this author for the characters and the whimsy. Unusual story combines vampires, the multi-verse, magic artifacts, spirits and yet feels like a fairytale. Pot of tea optional but recommended.
