Waiting on Wednesday (2): Blood Spirits by Sherwood Smith

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Blood Spirits (sequel to Coronets and Steel)
Sherwood Smith
DAW Publisher
September 6, 2011

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 book is one that I have been waiting on for approximately six months.  I simply adore Sherwood Smith's work and have never been disappointed with anything I have read that she has penned.  Give me a take-charge-butt-kicking heroine, castles, magic, battles, intrigue, mystery, and the complex heroes that almost seem broody.  The throw in a spattering of romance and I'm sold.  Sherwood's books just deliver!  Coronets and Steel was so amazing that I could not put it down.  I expect no less from Blood Spirits.  

September looks to be a huge month in new releases but I can tell you where I'll be on the 6th; curled up on my comfy couch digging into one of my most waited for books this year.

What book are you eagerly anticipating?
