Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.
Every spellbinding performance extracts a piece of actress Marie St. Jean’s soul. But trapped in Paris during a Prussian siege – and her mother's theatre – she has no choice but to take the stage. Then a ghostly spirit promises to fix Marie’s affliction – for a price.
Marie’s other problem – her attraction to alluring violinist, Johann Bledsoe, a temptation she dares not explore, particularly as the phantom grows jealous.
Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, murders and revelations from the past drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what really lurks below the stage, and what dangers hang over their heads. Their only hope could lie in exposing their darkest secrets—and surrendering to the Eros Element in a way that could push them to the edge of madness.
Clockwork Phantom is the second book in the Aether Psychics, a thrilling steampunk series with puzzling mysteries and hints of magic. If you like historical mysteries with a scientific – or is it supernatural? – twist, then you'll love Cecilia Dominic's Aether Psychics series.
