Theorist, Spiritualist and New Orleans native Louis Dupris leaves his former life behind to join the secret, unorthodox Eterna Commission in New York City as their strange cabal attempts to find the cure for death. Led by Spiritualists and mediums, Senator Rupert Bishop and his enigmatic ward, Clara Templeton, the covert Eterna Commission was created from torturous grief surrounding the assassination of President Lincoln. Over a decade later, with no progress made, Dupris and his unique ideas might give the Commission new life, but his own is endangered in the process. Not only must he and Clara hide a newfound passion for one another, one that has been expressly forbid, but he must contend with the sudden appearance of his long-lost and unreliable twin brother who arrives bringing significant trouble of his own. When Dupris discovers what he believes is an unprecedented breakthrough in localized magic, an incredible, life-saving and protective measure, he awakens a terrible, violent force. He races to alert his forbidden love before his spirit gives out and he’s no use to anyone dead or alive.
