"Smart, boundlessly creative gaslamp fantasy. Heiber blends historical fact and paranormal fiction with ease, creating a world that is lush and fascinatingly strange."--RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
"Extremely descriptive; the supernatural plot is intriguing. A rainbow of characters, from the guilt-ridden to the intellectual to the satirical, will have readers chomping at the bit for more."--Suspense Magazine
“Heightens the tension and sharpens the points of contradiction for an age on the cusp of change. Hieber relishes and subverts the late Victorian opulence and decadence of her world. The plot’s afoot, [and] more is sure to come.”―Locus
“As always, Hieber masterfully details her novels, from conjuring a realistic picture of Victorian New York to outfitting her characters in dresses and frills I continually find myself coveting. There’s a little of bit of everything in this series, from romance to action to horrifying dinner parties. This is the Gothic, after all.”―Criminal Element
“Hieber includes women of different ethnicity and faiths, including an incredible Muslim acrobat. Eterna and Omega is highly enjoyable, especially for readers that enjoy stories combining science and ghostly figures. Hieber does an excellent job of giving a brief explanation into the previous book [and] Eterna and Omega does a great job of standing on its own.”―Fang-girlNation
“As in the first book, Leanna adeptly engages with important issues like equality for women, as well as for people of all races, sexual orientations, and religions, and shows how these issues fit into a Victorian context. I certainly recommend that you check out Eterna and Omega, along with any of Leanna’s other works.”―The Gothic Library
"Hieber has a knack for creating authentic Victorian atmosphere and colorful personalities that will keep readers coming back for more."--Publishers Weekly--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Agents from the New York based: Eterna team up with the British Omega in order to prevent an apocalyptic uprising of the Undead.
A Gas Lamp fantasy that mixes electricity with magic.
Eterna and Omega picks up exactly within moments of the first book. Clara, a spiritualist wakes up from exhaustion due to the over abundance of spirits surrounding her in the cemetery when she was burying sensitive information from her former deceased lover Louis. At the start of the book, Clara and the American Eterna team are still investigating the death of Louis and his colleagues and what happened that fateful day when their building blew up. And thanks to Clara’s gifts she was able to communicate with Louis and discovered that evil shadowy creatures, The Summoned were the cause of their death and that without some sort of protection/wards, the creatures will wreck havoc across the country.
On the opposite side of the world in England, the Omega team is getting ready to set sail for America by order of the Queen. The Queen has made the Eterna team out to be the villains and that Omega must retrieve all of Eterna’s work to secure her the cure to immortality. But little do they know that the real threat is the Queen herself. The two teams finally collide with one another but instead of working against each another, they join forces together to beat The Summoned that threaten to take over their world and stop the agenda for an old world.
The stakes are higher in this follow-up to The Eterna Files. Hieber subtly paints a countdown clock without the unnecessary bells and whistle. There weren’t crazy action scenes but I felt the urgency of the plot bouncing back and forth between Eterna and Omega nonetheless. Readers finally get a better understanding of what’s going on and why certain things are happening, especially with Moriel. Like with most stories, I love it when people put aside their differences and work together. I found the most enjoyable party of the story was when Eterna and Omega started working together.
Eterna and Omega was an excellent addition to The Eterna Files Series. I enjoyed it way more than I expected. This is a wonderful Gaslamp Fantasy series (fantasy/historical fiction with Victorian/Edwardian Setting) and if you haven’t tried this genre yet, Hieber’s novels would be a great place to start!
