The Heroka are an ancient race of shape shifters, drawing their powers and vitality from their animal totems. Gwyn Blaidd, a Heroka of the wolf totem, has been a recluse ever since a deadly battle years ago with the Tainchel, the covert government agency that hunts the Heroka?a battle that cost him the only woman he ever loved.

But when Gwyn is asked by the head of the Heroka to stop an old friend from killing a powerful logging baron, it begins a chain of events that will force Gwyn to again confront the Tainchel?and his own dark past.

Note: includes an afterword by the author and excerpts from many of his other stories

REVIEWS

"A vivid and wonderfully written tale about Native Canadian spirits, in the vein of Thomas King." ?Challenging Destiny

"The characters are intriguing and the story beguiling. I would like to read more about these characters." ?SF Crowsnest Book Reviews

"Works on both intimate and epic levels (including a great, high adrenaline battle between armed humans, shape-shifters and forest animals). ... Smith's Heroka are expertly realized and an interesting take on the shape-shifter mythos, and each individual character within the story is just as carefully and finely crafted. Relationships are complex and many-layered, as Doug is able to weave a rich back-story into the lives of his characters... Love, sex, action, intrigue, humour, the complexities of life, tragedy of death, and wonder of rebirth are all packed into 'Spirit Dance'." ? Rainbow Dragon Recommends

"An [example of] the author?s ability to place the possible and impossible side by side to excellent effect in an action packed story." ?Hellnotes
