Tangled Spirits offers a unique insight into the world of 10th century Japan, and one that held me spellbound with its intriguing main characters and sense of danger.” M J Porter, best-selling author of the historical fiction series Eagles of Mercia

“I have huge admiration for the way Kate Shanahan has woven her fictional story into known history to create a fabulous tapestry of a novel.” Lynn Bryant, author of The Peninsular War Saga

Journey to the imperial court of Japan as Kate Shanahan skillfully blends fictional and historical figures and events into a time-slip tale of intrigue, personal sacrifice, and a friendship that spans a thousand years.

Two spirits. One body. It’s harder than it looks.

2019: Anxious and insecure, college student Mina Cooper wants to change her life, to change herself, but she gets more change than she bargains for when her spirit is pulled into the past and into someone else’ body - in 10th century Japan. And now she has a lot more to be anxious about. Like exorcism. And bandits. And chaotic magic by an inexperienced shaman.

999: Desperately lonely after her mother and sister die in an epidemic, aspiring shaman Lady Masako attempts to call her mother back from the spirit world, but gets possessed by Mina instead.

After a struggle for control and a failed exorcism, the two spirits agree to cooperate long enough to get help from the Royal Astrologer, the only person powerful enough to send Mina home.

But his help comes at a cost. If Mina doesn't pay it, she risks her spirit fusing with Masako’s. And if that happens, she’ll never get home.

Readers have this to say about Tangled Spirits:

Tangled Spirits is a rare book, one that combines our modern-day hectic life with that of non-high-tech medieval Japan, and makes it all seem natural and real.”

“This tale captivated me from start to finish.”

“The idea of two people, with totally different life experiences, inhabiting the same body and learning to ‘live’ together was fascinating, humorous at times and poignant at others.”
