Omar Bakhoum, a man with many lives and many names, leaves his vast and mysterious empire behind to join a dangerous airship expedition to the glaciers of Europa.

There, he hopes to find a mythical island where he can continue his studies of the aether mist that reveals the souls of the dead to unlock the secrets of immortality. But howling storms, rampaging beasts, and a deadly samurai stand between him and his goal. Armed only with an aetherium blade, Omar has more than a weapon, he has an army. Locked within the sword are the souls of countless warriors and scholars, each of whom lend Omar their knowledge or skills when asked... or when forced. But when Omar is accused of murder over the north sea, his quest for answers may end in a watery grave. Welcome to the world of AETHERIUM, where strange machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous prehistoric beasts roam the earth, and the restless dead whisper to the living. Similar to our own world in the sixteenth century, AETHERIUM explores a reality in which many of the megafauna did not die out, including terror birds and saber-toothed cats, and in which a devastating Ice Age continues to ravage Europe while Africa enjoys cool rains and the Sahara is no desert at all. But strangest of all may be the science of seeing, hearing, and controlling the souls of the dead using a golden metal with many names: sunsteel, orichalcum, and... AETHERIUM!

Europa

Joseph Robert Lewis

Fantasy / Science Fiction / Young Adult

All three books in the Europa trilogy of dark fantasy adventures: Book 1 - Omar the Immortal In the dazzling and dangerous land of Marrakesh, globe-trotting scholar Omar Bakhoum joins an airship expedition into the freezing north in search of a fabled country called Ysland, but howling ice storms, legions of ghosts, and a deadly samurai stand in his path. His journey has barely begun before the members of the expedition team begin dying of a strange and sudden disease, and as the last remaining foreigner on board, Omar is accused of these murders. The one thing that can help him find the real killer is Omar's ancient sword, haunted by the souls of thousands of dead sages and warriors. But this sword may be the very thing that dooms the entire expedition to a watery grave. Book 2 - Freya the Huntress In the snowy highlands of Ysland, Freya's sister is attacked by a diseased creature. Now, Freya has only a few hours to find a cure before her sister becomes a monstrous fox demon. With her husband Erik and the young witch Wren, Freya explores deserted cities full of ghosts, meets lonely survivors on the edge of madness, and finally seeks answers in Rekavik where she meets the witch queen Skadi and her cruel warrior Leif Blackmane. Freya learns that the only person who can cure the demon plague is a certain traveler from a distant land, but he was murdered five years ago... Viking warriors and ravening demons threaten her on all sides, but not even death itself will stop Freya from saving the people she loves. Book 3 - Wren the Fox Witch The young witch Wren follows her mentor Omar across the frozen wastes of Europa to the warring cities of Constantia and Stamballa, where war is the least of her problems. While Omar leads a desperate battle against an undead army, Wren must face the immortal witch Baba Yaga, who has gone mad grieving for her son, Koschei the Deathless. During their duel, Wren confronts the spiteful souls of her dead teachers, her own secret fears made flesh, and the waking nightmares of Baba Yaga herself. But Omar has taught her how to control the aether mists that reveal the souls of the dead, so if Wren can somehow defeat the mad crone, she may gain the power to end the entire war by herself.
