"A wickedly wonderful storyteller."
--Jocelynn Drake

"A brilliant new voice in paranormal romance."
--Christina Dodd

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.
