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
