Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ms. Hieber's latest saga was impossible to put down and, as a sequel to 2015's The Eterna Files, did not disappoint. Featuring delightful cameos from across her various series, Eterna and Omega is a hurtling, espionage-and-action filled journey lit by gas lanterns and undaunted, inimitable souls. Her trademark immersive scene creation is at its peak, and her characters are as endearing and human as ever before. While this story can stand alone, it is recommended that the reader first read The Eterna Files, if nothing else. The experience is further enriched by prior reading of the Darker Still saga most especially, but also the three existing Strangely Beautiful books. Strongly recommended for lovers of Gothic fiction, Poe, Lovecraft, and Shakespeare.
