Meet THE ETERNA FILES - Advanced Reader Copy contest!
(Wed, 15 Oct 2014)
I am so thrilled to have received my beautiful Advanced Reader Copies of THE ETERNA FILES today from Tor, so there simply must be a contest to receive an ARC
of your very own!
Check out how Tor Books featured THE ETERNA FILES at New York Comic Con this year!
About the book: (From Barnes & Noble) - And YES - It's available for Pre-Order!
"Imagine The X-Files meets Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series and set in Victorian London and New York City—welcome to The Eterna Files, written by Leanna Renee Hieber, “the brightest
new star in literature”(True-Blood.net)
London, 1882: Queen Victoria appoints Harold Spire of the Metropolitan Police to Special Branch Division Omega. Omega is to secretly investigate paranormal and supernatural events and persons.
Spire, a skeptic driven to protect the helpless and see justice done, is the perfect man to lead the department, which employs scholars and scientists, assassins and con men, and a traveling
circus. Spire's chief researcher is Rose Everhart, who believes fervently that there is more to the world than can be seen by mortal eyes.
Their first mission: find the Eterna Compound, which grants immortality. Catastrophe destroyed the hidden laboratory in New York City where Eterna was developed, but the Queen is convinced someone
escaped—and has a sample of Eterna.
Also searching for Eterna is an American, Clara Templeton, who helped start the project after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln nearly destroyed her nation. Haunted by the ghost of her beloved,
she is determined that the Eterna Compound—and the immortality it will convey—will be controlled by the United States, not Great Britain." (Releasing 2/3/15 in hardcover and digital, both formats
available for pre-order across all platforms)
