About Ghostspeaker Chronicles Books 1-6

The complete series omnibus of the Ghostspeaker Chronicles.

As daughter of a river trader in the kingdom of Saarland, Johanna doesn’t want to marry or do “ladies’ things”, she wants to take over her father’s business.

The choice is not hers to make. The kingdom is in trouble. The crown princess has died and the king’s only other child, prince Roald, is unfit to reign, because he is “not good in the head”. In his despair, the king has given a lot of money to magicians and others of dubious repute who made even more dubious promises about curing his son or resurrecting his daughter, and plunged the kingdom deep into debt.

Johanna’s father has money. He has a daughter. Johanna agrees to a dance with the prince.

No, she does not fall in love–far from it, but love is the last she needs to worry about. First, she has to deal with betrayal, ghosts, fire demons, wizards and necromancers.

Here is a sample:

An unfamiliar coat hung on the stand. A man’s coat. Black. A very finely-made one with a very small pin on the coat’s collar: the rooster, the symbol of the Carmine House.

In the stairwell, on the landing halfway between the ground floor and the second floor, was a little door that led into a low-ceilinged storeroom that had been built between the floors. The servants used this to store items of furniture that they didn’t use anymore, or spare plates or tableware that didn’t fit in the cupboards. This room was directly above Father’s office.
Johanna paused at the stairs, looking carefully if anyone could see her. Then she opened the door quietly, went in and shut it again so that it became dark and stuffy inside. In the little cupboard-like space, she wriggled off her shoes and carried them in her hand while she very slowly climbed up the couple of steps to the room. The steps were odd, at an angle, and uneven. They were made of rough wood that creaked badly unless you were very careful and very slow.


The storeroom was barely tall enough for her to stand in. Father would have to bend his head to avoid hitting it on the ceiling beams. There was a window in the far wall. Half of it vanished below the floor and the bottom part of it was the window in Father’s study below. The light that shone through silvered items of furniture covered with sheets and various boxes and crates. One of them had Estlander writing on it. It had belonged to Johanna’s mother, Lady Sara Aroden, a minor duchess of the Estlander court.


The sound of father’s voice drifted up through the floorboards. Johanna sank to her knees, trying to make not the slightest of sounds, and put her ear to the floor. It was very dusty.


Father was speaking. “. . . We can provide loans, certainly. But I don’t know that we have the capacity to do what you ask.”
