"Hand of Miriam is a well-written mystery adventure.  I wished the story would continue when I got to the end." ~Bitten By Books

"Hand of Miriam is so action-packed and filled with different fast-paced adventures as well as entities ranging from angels to demons, werewolves to vampires, and the murderous Jack the Ripper, it was impossible to sit still while reading this book. " ~Paranormal Romance Guild

Steampunk, Victorian, with a little mix in of Goth. ~Clarice's Book Nook

Hand of Miriam
A Bayla and the Golem Novel (book 1)
by Eva Gordon

This is the first Steampunk novel I have read. I have wanted to read one for a while now and jumped at the chance to read this one. I think it was a great look into the steampunk world for me.

The Hand of Miriam by Eva Gordon combines the steampunk world, Jewish Mythology and romance into a wonderful book that kept me wanting more.

I look forward to the next installment of Bayla and the Golem.

This novel made me realize how burnt out I am over supernatural creatures in steampunk fiction. I couldn't make myself care about any of the characters, which had the effect of making the whole thing seem longer than it needed to be. The plot rambles over many locales, sometimes I missed the transition and had to back up to see how they got there. It just seemed too long, and would have benefited from tighter editing. The action picked up for the last quarter. The mythos was good, and I did learn a few things about Jewish culture!

I loved reading the story, except when the author would take side trip after side trip that did not add to that part of the book. The overall story was good, but should have been more developed by eliminating so many of the side trips.

In Hand of Miriam Ms. Gordon blends actual history but twists it to give it a paranormal and mystical quality that will have you wondering what will happen next. It is action plotted with a female hero that is timeless. Love is in the air, but is it attainable when danger stocks Bayla?

Hand of Miriam is a great mix of steam punk and romance with just a twist of religion to keep it even more interesting. Bayla Gideon has been marked with the ability to sense evil with a touch. Bayla is unique from women of her time in other ways as well. She is an academic that loves to go on expeditions looking for antiquities. One of her late husband's great prizes is a golem. When Bayla's new abilities begin to lead to threats to her life she decides to give life to the golem, never realizing what his true history really is.

There is a huge storyline in this book - almost too much. It involves the presence of Jack the Ripper - only his victims aren't only human. He's been killing vampiresses as well (oh yes did I mention there are vampires, werewolves, ghouls, demons, all sorts of fun stuff). Bayla and her golem, Gesher, are out to try and find out just what is going on - madness ensues with lots of fighting and lots of Gesher saving the day. And all along the way they are slowly falling love - but if they follow their desires he will never be able to return heaven - major issue.

The story is how they deal with the baddies, resolve their love delimma, and end with a mostly HEA. It is a series so there has to be more to the story somewhere. The only downfall for me was there was one too many "endings". I thought for sure she had written a fantastic ending that I loved, loved, loved, and then there were another 50 pages and another ending that just wasn't quite as satisfaying for me. I think the extra bit was important to the overall storyline though.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This was my first book by Eva Gordon and I must say I'm impressed. The book was fast paced, tight, and engaging. The steampunk aspect was there, but wasn't plot-centric. More like a part of the environment. Exactly what you would expect of a book casually mentioning things that are commonplace in the world. It made me able to concentrate more on the story. And the paranormal aspect of this story was intriguing. Someone who can see the evil within all men and a fallen angel trying to get back to heaven are two people you wouldn't necessarily expect to see together, yet for some reason it not only works, it sparks. I also found the Jewish aspect to the story fascinating. So many books about that period of time simply focus on Christianity and pretend that no other religion exists. It was refreshing to read a story that not only included a minority religion, but made the main characters a part of that religion. Also, since I have loved ones that practice that religion, it made me happy to see the details that made me remember my own interactions with the faith. I really enjoyed this book.
