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.

Hieber's evocative but sluggish third Victorian-era paranormal (after Eterna and Omega) expands the adventures of the American Eterna and the British Omega supernatural investigating teams. In 1882 London, the members of the two groups sail to New York after defeating their nemesis, Beauregard Moriel. Clara Templeton detects something unnatural emitting from the transcontinental cable and Thomas Edison's newfangled electric wires: someone is attaching dark magic onto emerging industrial wonders. Related to these events is the rise of Lady Celeste Tantagenet, an American connected to Beauregard in a tragic way. She desires to control the country and gain immortality. Her dastardly diversions send Eterna and Omega to the Statue of Liberty's flame, Columbia University, and President Arthur's White House. Refreshingly, the team members are diverse and respect their colleagues, who boast an eclectic mix of paranormal powers, so conflict comes from outside. The revelation of the new threat is encumbered by extensive gothic descriptions, but as the story delves more into the amiable characters' backgrounds, friendships, and romances, readers will happily settle in.
