Kim Murray is happily planning her wedding when she finds herself pulled two centuries back in time. It's 1795, the rise of Napoleon, and Kim is now a guardian spirit for a 12-year-old kid who will either become Kim's ancestor...or the timeline will alter and Kim will vanish, along with the small, magical European country of Dobrenica. What? Yes, the child called Aurelie de Mascarenhas must get to Dobrenica, or more than just one family will vanish.
Kim hates time travel conundrums, and knows nothing about kids. How is she going to guide a kid born on Saint-Domingue, with whom she has nothing in common?
From Jamaica to England to the Paris of the early 1800s, Kim and Aurelie travel, sharing adventures and learning more about Vrajhus, the Blessing, and the Nasdrafus than is known in Dobrenica's modern times. Along the way to wedding bells or annihilation, Kim makes a shocking discovery....

"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 on the Dobrenica Series)
I think it is not the first book in the series. Starting with first mite have helped. I do like books for young people this one seemed for some one to young. Also not fond of first person stories do not reject out of hand.
Something on wish list or a sci fi book that comes out soon
I am not a expert voice is pleasant she did nothing I found unpleasant.
None it was back ground and stile If I new how to make me connect to a book I would writing them.
If at all possible start with the first book in a series.
