Eterna Files, Book 3
Synopsis: The exciting conclusion to a sumptuous gaslamp fantasy series
Leanna Renee Hieber brings Victorian London and New York to life and fills both cities with ghosts and monsters. Two groups of paranormally talented investigators discover that the Eterna compound—thought to be the key to immortality—is, instead, a powerful protective charm. That protection is sorely needed, for both England and the U.S. are under attack by dark forces.
Having vanquished the demonic pretender to the British throne, the now-united forces of the Eterna Commission and the Omega Department reach America ready to take on a new menace. But like the United States itself, this evil is rapidly spreading from sea to shining sea. Will the new magic our heroes have discovered be strong enough to defeat it?
With its blend of Victorian details, complex plots, and compelling characters, Hieber’s fascinating historical fantasy continues to earn critical acclaim and has a dedicated readership.
Review: After reading the first two volumes, I was curious to embark on this third and last opus. As always, we find all the characters that we took pleasure to discover in the previous volumes. Besides, I really appreciated the fact that the story focuses mainly on Rose and Clara. I always find them both very interesting!
Our heroes are facing a new affair here and they will have to make every effort to manage this new threat. In addition to that, we will also follow the relationships of the young women and I admit that it was very touching to see Clara and Bishop turn around clumsily throughout the story.
I had a little trouble getting into the story for the first two volumes and it is true that I had the same feeling with this last novel. I can not really point the reason but it’s true that I still have some problems with the story. In any case, it was a really interesting trilogy and the author has created a really fascinating universe in this series!
I’m not entirely sure because of the trouble with the story, but I can tell it sounds like an interesting fantasy, so I might try it one day 🙂
I hope you’ll like it if you try it!
That does sound interesting. Some books are harder to get into than others.
I love historical paranormals and it sounds good. Yeah, I’ve had that happen with some books just feeling off to me and I can’t fully love them though I don’t know why. Glad you could enjoy the two characters.
I have read this author in the past and there is something about her writing, it just never grabs me. Sounds like you struggle with it as well.
yeah I think it’s the same for me
Amazing cover! And ooh gaslamp… 🙂
Haven’t tried this author before and for some reason I like that cover a lot lol
I tried something by her aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago
Glad you enjoyed it despite having a little trouble immersing in the books.
This sounds really interesting. Too bad it was kind of hard to get into.
Sounds like a really interesting book – but sorry you never really fell in love with the whole series.
Hmm, doesn’t seem like an ending that really pays off. I read the first one, but I felt the same as you with regards to having trouble getting into the story. I doubt I’ll continue then.
I felt the same about the whole series
Haven’t read anything from the author yet but I really like the idea of this trilogy, too bad the ending wasn’t a blast
Such a short review!
Always weird when there’s *something* and you just can’t put your finger on it. I think I have a couple of her books somewhere.
