Product Description

Product Description

On an archaeological expedition, Bayla Gideon, is widowed by a supernatural force and branded with the Hand of Miriam or Knowing Eye. Threatened by evil, she awakens the golem; a mythical man of clay, who protected the Jewish community over three centuries ago.
The golem, Gesher, is surprised. Freedom –by a beautiful, enchanting woman. His desire is to return to the celestial spheres and regain his status as an avenging angel. Yet, Bayla challenges his mind, body and soul. Would he risk his return to the heavens for her?
Besides, dealing with the otherkind, mad inventors and an unrelenting matchmaking aunt, Bayla is equally determined to resist her steamy attraction to the striking fallen angel.
Thrust into a malevolent war, which includes facing Jack the Ripper, they must resist the magnetic pull toward each other, while protecting the world from encroaching evil.

Hand of Miriam
A Bayla and the Golem Novel (book 1)
by Eva Gordon

This is the first Steampunk novel I have read. I have wanted to read one for a while now and jumped at the chance to read this one. I think it was a great look into the steampunk world for me.

The Hand of Miriam by Eva Gordon combines the steampunk world, Jewish Mythology and romance into a wonderful book that kept me wanting more.

I look forward to the next installment of Bayla and the Golem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many distractions in the story. Jan. 10 2014
By Karla E. Patterson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved reading the story, except when the author would take side trip after side trip that did not add to that part of the book. The overall story was good, but should have been more developed by eliminating so many of the side trips.

2.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural burn out May 3 2015
By loneStranger - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel made me realize how burnt out I am over supernatural creatures in steampunk fiction. I couldn't make myself care about any of the characters, which had the effect of making the whole thing seem longer than it needed to be. The plot rambles over many locales, sometimes I missed the transition and had to back up to see how they got there. It just seemed too long, and would have benefited from tighter editing. The action picked up for the last quarter. The mythos was good, and I did learn a few things about Jewish culture!
