"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.

Started well enough although with nothing new in terms of world-building. Then the plot totally shows down and turns into to a hackneyed para-romance. If that is what you are looking for, here it is.

Cherry St. Croix (a stripper name, if ever I heard one) is leading a double life. By day, she is a well-to-do young lady plagued by her family’s unfortunate reputation. By night, she is an opium addict and a “collector” or bounty hunter.

In this first entry in the steampunk/thriller series, Cherry is looking for a killer of prostitutes. The killer is particularly brutal, as the victims are found in pieces.

I’m not quite sure what to make of this novel, but I sure do like Cherry St. Croix. Despite her unfortunate name, she is a strong, yet imperfect heroine. She’s got a little bit of Stephanie Plum in her, and a little bit of Anita Blake, too.

An easy, breezy summer read!
