From childhood, Violet Rychman has dreamed of a coming war, of death and battle on an unimaginable scale. She has seen and heard ghosts, who have loved and guided her. Now the future she dreamed has come to pass. World War I rages across Europe. Millions of people are dying; entire villages are disappearing. A great and terrible vision sweeps over Violet, offering powers heralded by the Muses of antiquity. The ability to impact people's memories, even shape their thoughts. To guide their souls. To pass between the world of the living and that of the dead and to bring others through that passage. These and other gifts once belonged to people Violet loved. Now they are hers, and she must use them to attempt to stop death itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Leanna Renee Hieber's Strangely Beautiful books:

"Tender, poignant, exquisitely written." --New York Times bestselling author C.L. Wilson

"A strangely beautiful tale indeed! An ethereal, lyrical story that combines myth, spiritualism and the gothic in lush prose and sweeping passion."--Kathryn Smith, USA Today bestselling author

"A delightfully lush and richly imagined tale. Transcendent."--Fresh Fiction

"I cannot recommend this book, this series or this author enough."--True-Blood.Net

"Strikingly rich, dark, and beautiful imagery."--Alethea Kontis in Orson Scott Card's Galactic Medicine Show

"A secretive, gothic, paranormal world...a character who will resonate with anyone who has found the beauty in being different."--Booklist

"Rich in conceits as anything from Alan Moore, Hieber's novel mixes action and the emotional lives of its characters into a fascinating stew. Anyone who enjoyed Paul Cornell's London Falling will certainly cozy up to Hieber's parallel depiction of questioning savants and heroes versus the forces of anarchy and despair."--Paul Di Filippo in Asimov's Science Fiction on The Eterna Files

"Smart, boundlessly creative gaslamp fantasy. [Hieber] blends historical fact and paranormal fiction with ease, creating a world that is lush and fascinatingly strange."--RT Book Reviews (4 stars) on The Eterna Files
