"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)

Generally, I love Sherwood Smith's work. This one ... not quite so much.
On the plus side- it does give some interesting background. On the other hand- I was looking forward to more bout Kim, and even though she was the POV character here, she was mostly peripheral to the action.
Still- it was an exciting and engaging book. I'd recommend it to people who like the Sally Lockhart series; I think this is better, but similar in many ways.
I'm going to continue to read this series... but i'm a sucker for tiny weird countries in Europe (aka "The Mouse that Roared").
