Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.

Marie St. Jean's supreme acting talent comes with a price: Every spellbinding performance extracts a piece of her soul. When she reluctantly steps into a role abandoned by another leading lady, she encounters the ghostly spirit that caused the other woman to flee in terror. And who promises to fix Marie's affliction – for a price.

Marie's other problem – her attraction to alluring violinist, Johann Bledsoe, a temptation she dares not explore. However, with the Prussians surrounding Paris, she is well and truly trapped.

Johann left disgrace and his gambling debt behind in England, but a murder outside the Théâtre Bohème makes him fear he's been exposed. He'd love nothing more than to claim Marie as his own, but after the siege is over, his past will catch up to him again.

Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, more murders drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what really lurks below the stage, and what dangers hang over their heads. Their only hope could lie in exposing their darkest secrets--and surrendering to the Eros Element in a way that could push them irretrievably close to the edge of madness.

Clockwork Phantom is the second book in the Aether Psychics, a thrilling steampunk series with puzzling mysteries and elements of romance. If you like historical mysteries with a scientific – or is it supernatural? – twist, then you'll love Cecilia Dominic's Aether Psychics series.

Scroll up to buy Clockwork Phantom to continue this addictive and charming steampunk series today!

Note: Clockwork Phantom was originally titled Light Fantastique and picks up a few months after Eros Element ends. Our group of misfits is stuck in Paris due to the Prussian siege, and although they've solved the secret of stabilizing aether, it holds other more dangerous mysteries.

This is the second edition of the book Light Fantastique originally published by Samhain Publishing in December 2015

I'm really enjoying this series. The characters are well developed and there are lots of twists and turns that keep you turning pages long after you should have stopped to go to sleep. I continue to find Cecilia Dominic's writing style very similar to the dearly missed Anne McCaffrey. Each book is a stand alone but would best be enjoyed if read in order.

Marie St. Jean is known as a great actress but it is isn't just a matter of talent as she uses her soul in producing her great works. Johann Bledsoe is a violinist who has made some poor choices in life but it currently fascinated by Marie. They are both stuck in Paris which is surrounded by the Prussians. Also stuck with them are Iris McTavish (an aspiring Archaeologist), Professor Edward Bailey (man who is developing the Aether side of things), Patrick O’Connell (an Irishman who is helping Edward) and Doctor Chadwick Radcliffe (an African American medical doctor). The Focus of this story is all about Marie and what has happened in the past. There is also progress on figuring out the Eros Element. This was well written and there was a lot of expansion on what was given as hints in the past, but we now get the facts and understanding of the emotions that came to play at that time. I felt by the end of this book both the characters and us as the readers understood them much better. I did get a little lost at times and that is why I only gave this a 4 and not a 5.
