Danni Metreaux, a smart Paris marshal with a point to prove, and Sebastien Poyager, her loyal, wealthy and handsome partner, keep getting called in to deal with superhumans behaving oddly for no apparent reason, and innocent people are dying. Will they be able to find the culprit before more people die and the secret of the Weeia is revealed?
What others say:
A real page turner!
Smells Like Weeia Spirit is a wonderful addition to the Weeia world and another success for author Elle Boca. Danni and Sébastien are at it again, calming chaos and catching bad guys. A real page turner!

A compelling, engrossing read, I was hooked from the first page.
A compelling and fascinating story with an original plot and likable characters. Danni is strong willed, dedicated to her job and an all around likable woman. She is able to balance her job and personal life perfectly. Elle Boca grabs your attention by blending fantasy and (the) real world to a perfect mix, making a engrossing page turning read. I was hooked from the first page. I highly recommended Smells Like Weeia Spirit to all. A true five-star read.

Thank you Sheri for posting the first review!
Should be entertaining to anyone who likes an investigative adventure with a light fantasy flare
As are the other Weeia books by Elle Boca, Smells Like Weeia Spirit should be entertaining to anyone who likes an investigative adventure with a light fantasy flare.

Danni continues to be a sympathetic character
Boca continues to meld her bespoke variation on urban fantasy with accessible detective action, creating a thriller that showcases the metaphysical without hand-waving away the more routine aspects of investigation.
Danni continues to be a sympathetic character, neither too passive in the face of obstacles to be engaging nor able to shrug off disaster without noticeable pause.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. I recommend it to readers seeking an urban fantasy detective story that focuses more on the investigation than the fantastical.

What a great ride!
I really did enjoy the book and I am completely new to Ms. Boca’s work. Now that I have read this one I will definitely be looking for the first 2. I love that they are stand alone books and you can jump in anywhere to start, but still feel you can go back and read the others. Ms. Boca picks you up on the first chapter and has you sail along with her the entire story.

My favorite one to date
The third installment in the Weeia Marshal’s series is where the novels really seem to hit their stride. Danni Metreaux is finally in her element as the Paris Marshal, she knows the city, it’s weeia residents and has gotten the hang of having a partner. Smells Like Weeia Spirit starts off with some unexpected guests. Danni and Sebastian can’t catch a break, there is hardly any down time (although they do find some time for some delicious french cuisine).
A wonderful installment and honestly probably my favorite one to date. Elle Boca goes above with her descriptions of Paris, the food, and their culture. Truly a pleasure to read and contains a nice little mystery.

Moments of humor, attitude and brilliant dialogue once again will bring start to finish entertainment and adventure when Danni is involved!
Tome Tender review of Smells Like Weeia Spirit – click to enlarge
Elle Boca is back with another piece of the saga that is Danni Metreaux’s life. SMELLS LIKE WEEIA SPIRIT not only demands that Danni step up to the plate once again, but to do it with only the support of her partner as she continues to be treated as a second class citizen by both her superior and her underlings. Danni is the heroine you want to cheer for, to hug and to stand up for. Sure she is a little hot-headed, less than diplomatic, but no one is more dedicated to doing the right thing.
Get ready to learn what most humans don’t, there are those among us that have special powers and there is one small woman determined to keep both worlds safe, while hiding her world from danger. Moments of humor, attitude and brilliant dialogue once again will bring start to finish entertainment and adventure when Danni is involved! Another shiny gem form Elle Boca!

Boca really hit her writing stride with this book because it was just amazing
Ah yes more Weeia! I will always love getting back into this magical world. It never gets old. Danni is still my favorite character and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. She’s such a strong character that it’s hard not to be completely mesmerized by everything she does.
Boca really hit her writing stride with this book because it was just amazing. Danni really seemed in her element and so much more comfortable with her job. She had her hands full in this one trying to stop mere mortals from discovering the existence of the weeia. No pressure Danni. I still adore seeing Paris through the scenes that Boca creates in excellent detail.
Sebastion is a great character too. He and Danni make a great team and they are always fun to read. They worked so well together it was like they were made for each other. All in all, this was a great installment to this series and I can’t wait to read more!

A rollercoaster of action and emotions
Lovely third installment of the Weeia series. A rollercoaster of action and emotions, the Parisian setting is ‘absolument superbe’

An awesome read!
Author Elle Boca has delivered a complex and intriguing mystery for her third Weeia Paris Marshals novel. All of her characters and the amazing abilities they wield seem so real, and her descriptions of Paris make the book come alive. An awesome read!

Smells Like Weeia Spirit transported me into the wonder that is Paris, to the point that it felt I was there instead of my home. Danni and Sebastien had me turning the pages faster than I could read them.
Emotional roller coaster of a read
A great addition to Boca’s Weeia Marshals series. Human politics and conflicts spill over into the not-so-perfect world of Weeia–and of Paris. Once again, Boca has created an emotional roller coaster of a read, with larger-than-life characters, unlikely heroes, and a protagonist that is one of the most memorable characters I have ever met.

I am enjoying this series and am looking forward to reading more of Danni’s adventures in Paris
I am enjoying this series and am looking forward to reading more of Danni’s adventures in Paris. I would recommend Smells like Weeia Spirit to fans of the first 2 Weeia Marshals books and those who enjoyed the Weeia series.

Author Elle Boca delivers a powerful ending
Marshall Danielle Metreaux is back along with Sebastien Poyager in another adventure that will take them deep inside the Academie Superieur de Goin to uncover the mysterious death of a student and the death of an older man who was visiting his sister.
What is causing Weeia to act out of sorts? Where does it stem from and who is creating this powerful thing to change personalities? A specially created scent that aligns with a person’s Henki and when properly applied can make you popular if that is what you want, make you charismatic or anything you want. But, that’s if it belongs to you. When the CUT leader, praises Danni and would love to steal her for his unit, will her loss and what she is enduring make her leave Paris and go in another direction? With her friend Marla, Ernie and her partner and Susanna, will they solve the mystery and will she remain?
Author Elle Boca delivers a powerful ending that lets readers know this is not over yet and there is much more to come but first lets hope that somehow they solve the puzzle of what Smells Like Weeia Spirit?
