“for those who love magical beings living among humans and the things that could go wrong. Boy, can I assure you things go wrong.”

Byrd Nash does it again with this witty, fantastical Young Adult book! 

As always, Byrd goes above and beyond in her details and intricate storytelling.

Even better than the first book, Nash takes her fae characters to deeper levels of magic

The author does an amazing job at building a world full of fantasy and magic that I just don’t want to put down.

A Study in Spirits is packed full of excitement and hard to put down!

The story is entertaining and fun, the characters are real but not too pretentious, and there is of course a talking cat, which just pushes it over the edge for me.

You will feel as if you are surrounded by magic and fantasy the whole time you are reading.

I love the world this author has created… It tickles the funny bone and engages the grey matter.

Byrd Nash has a wonderful imagination and a great ability to put her thoughts into amazing stories.

A Study in Spirits is available in print and ebook formats from you favorite online retailer

Read a Sample

Ladislas was turning it over in his hands, stroking the smooth wood.

“A longbow made of wych yew. Some see it as inferior to traditional yew, but wych yew makes a flatter, wider bow. Makes a better balance when you draw.”

Continuing in an instructive voice, he nocked an arrow. It had an obsidian arrow-point and black fletchings.

“These arrows are exceptional. A unique blend of three Elements: Wind, Wood, and Stone.”

With an easy, smooth draw, Brigit’s father brought his hand to his pointed ear and aimed the arrow’s tip at Logan. “The enchantment makes each arrow always strike true.”

“What about Guest Right?” Logan reminded him. Angry, he stood up, moving so the tip was a hands-breath from his heart.

“As humans say, better to ask for forgiveness. Your family can come to me for redress.”

The knuckles of the king’s fingers tightened.
