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.

Review quote

"Smart, boundlessly creative gaslamp fantasy. Heiber blends historical fact and paranormal fiction with ease, creating a world that is lush and fascinatingly strange."--RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

"Extremely descriptive; the supernatural plot is intriguing. A rainbow of characters, from the guilt-ridden to the intellectual to the satirical, will have readers chomping at the bit for more."--Suspense Magazine

"Heightens the tension and sharpens the points of contradiction for an age on the cusp of change. Hieber relishes and subverts the late Victorian opulence and decadence of her world. The plot's afoot, [and] more is sure to come."--Locus

"As always, Hieber masterfully details her novels, from conjuring a realistic picture of Victorian New York to outfitting her characters in dresses and frills I continually find myself coveting. There's a little of bit of everything in this series, from romance to action to horrifying dinner parties. This is the Gothic, after all."--Criminal Element

"Hieber includes women of different ethnicity and faiths, including an incredible Muslim acrobat. Eterna and Omega is highly enjoyable, especially for readers that enjoy stories combining science and ghostly figures. Hieber does an excellent job of giving a brief explanation into the previous book [and] Eterna and Omega does a great job of standing on its own."--Fang-girlNation

"As in the first book, Leanna adeptly engages with important issues like equality for women, as well as for people of all races, sexual orientations, and religions, and shows how these issues fit into a Victorian context. I certainly recommend that you check out Eterna and Omega, along with any of Leanna's other works."--The Gothic Library

"Hieber has a knack for creating authentic Victorian atmosphere and colorful personalities that will keep readers coming back for more."--Publishers Weekly
