Leanna Renee Hieber's gaslamp fantasy series continues and the action ramps up in Eterna and Omega.
In New York City, fearing the dangers of the Eterna Compound--supposedly the key to immortality--Clara Templeton buries information vital to its creation. The ghost of her clandestine lover is desperate to tell her she is wrong, but though she is a clairvoyant, she cannot hear him.
In London, Harold Spire plans to send his team of assassins, magicians, mediums, and other rogue talents to New York City, in an attempt to obtain Eterna for Her Royal Majesty, Queen Victoria. He stays behind to help Scotland Yard track down a network of body snatchers and occultists, but he'll miss his second-in-command, Rose Everhart, whose gentle exterior masks a steel spine.
Rose's skepticism about the supernatural has been shattered since she joined Spire's Omega Branch. Meeting Clara is like looking into a strange mirror: both women are orphans, each is concealing a paranormal ability, and each has a powerful and attractive guardian who has secrets of his own.
The hidden occult power that menaces both England and America continues to grow. Far from being dangerous, Eterna may hold the key to humanity's salvation.
LEANNA RENEE HIEBER's first novel, The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker, won two Prism Awards from RWA's Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter: Best Fantasy Romance and Best First Novel and is currently in development as a Broadway musical, with Hieber writing the script. Her YA novel, Darker Still, was a Scholastic Highly Recommended Title, an INDIE NEXT selection, and a finalist for the Daphne du Maurier Award.
This book is up there with the likes of Dan Brown's Angel and Demons and other movies and books of its kind. This is a great cat and mouse/hide and seek game. This all centers around the key to immortality and I have to say that this book blew me away! I really loved how the elements of English and American aspects worked in this book. I really understand now why Rose and Clara seem so much alike. Coming from similar walks of life but being an ocean apart. You will find out in this one if they decide to work together or if they will be standing apposing sides. But only one of those choices will help save the world.
This one hit it out of the park. So much is going on but it will suck you in and keep you there until the last page. I really can't wait for the next book!
Well done Leanna! I knew there was a reason she was one of my fav authors.
