“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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 28, 2012 – Switching gears from the postapocalyptic setting of her Dark Mission series (All Things Wicked, etc.), Cooper s first St. Croix Chronicles steampunk urban fantasy brings readers to affluent Victorian London neighborhoods elevated on steel beams to escape the pollution of the industrialized underbelly. Cherry St. Croix works as a collector, disguising herself and descending via steam-powered sky ferries to the dangerous docks and pleasure gardens, where she captures thieves, miscreants, and the occasional murderer in exchange for bounties to fuel her opium addiction. Aloft, she struggles to play the role she was born into: the eccentric but socially acceptable daughter of an insane scientist. When Cherry tries to catch a serial killer, she puts herself in even more danger than usual. Readers expecting romance in an Avon title will be disappointed; Cooper s urban fantasy lays the groundwork for future romantic interludes but focuses more on Cherry s attempts to control her addiction and stay alive.
