Book Review: The Eterna Files by Leanna Renee Hieber.
Available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and other retailers.
Addicted. I am officially addicted to Leanna Renne Hieber’s writing. I have no problem with this addiction and intend to do nothing but feed it over the coming months.
If you love reading, I would suggest that you also develop this particular addiction. She has seventeen titles available on Amazon. Seventeen delightful things… a few that are out of print as a result of the publisher going out of business. The good news is that her new publisher, Tor, is releasing her lost titles soon. I can’t wait.
I felt in love with her book, The Eterna Files, from the very first page. I wanted to know immediately how Clara Templeton was going to fair in her quest for immortality, not for herself, but for the leader of our beloved nation. Clara’s quest begins in the wake of the Civil War and the assassination of President Lincoln and continues to England’s Victorian Age and an assignment from the Queen Mum herself. Clara’s counter part Harold Spire has been appointed by her majesty’s command to purse the Eterna project. Both are bound by their honor to do what they think is right.
Hieber has a wonderful way of creating rich historical worlds that draw you in and keep you enthralled. You want to know what is happening with both teams as they search for the answers to death. Tragedy has stuck both teams and each believes the others to blame. It is difficult to image the days when America and Great Britain were enemies, but it is barely a hundred years after the revolution and both countries are hunting the same prize. It is easy to see how both would see each other as the enemy and not the ally that they are today.
If you love a mystery, Gothic fiction and an all around good story, you need to read this book. And everything else by this writer, Leanna Renee Hieber.
