Tarnished (Mass Market Paperbound)
"A wickedly wonderful storyteller."
"A brilliant new voice in paranormal romance."
Author Karina Cooper enthralls with her stunning new series, The St. Croix Chronicles. Cooper, whose haunting Dark Mission novels set a new standard for paranormal romance, carries readers into the shadows of a very different Victorian London, where science skirts the line between magic and mechanics. A magnificent talent writing in the vein of such paranormal and urban fantasy superstars as J.R. Ward, Jeaniene Frost, Gail Carriger, and Meljean Brook, Cooper introduces readers to a truly remarkable heroine: Cherry St. Croix. Debutante by day and bounty hunter by night, Cherry makes a truly smashing debut in Tarnished, as she trawls the seedy underbelly of an alternate London in search of a killer...and finds herself at odds with the dangerous--and dangerously handsome--criminal kingpin, Micajah Hawke, ruler of the Midnight Menagerie.
