Blood of the Wicked: A Dark Mission Novel by Karina Cooper

Blood of the Wicked scared me, thrilled me, and made me fall in love with the characters. I want more and I can’t wait to see what she writes next!”
—Cherry Adair

Bestselling author Christina Dodd calls Karina Cooper, “A brilliant new voice in paranormal romance.” Karina’s extraordinary debut novel, Blood of the Wicked, is exhilarating, terrifying, mesmerizing, and hotter than hell. Unfolding in an alternate Earth forever changed by mass catastrophes and ruled by repression, bigotry, and fear, the spellbinding story has sworn enemies joining forces—united by need and irresistible passion—to achieve a frightening  goal that almost certainly means death for one of them. A brilliantly imaginative and breathtakingly sensuous tale of witches and witch hunters, Blood of the Wicked immediately rockets Karina Cooper into the elite company of J. R. Ward, Kresley Cole, and Charlaine Harris.

About the Author

Born from the genetic mash-up of lesser royalty, storytellers, wanderers and dreamers, Karina Cooper was destined to be a creative genius. As a child, she moved all over the country like some kind of waifish blonde gypsy and learned how to adapt to the new cultures her family settled in. When she (finally) grew up, she skipped the whole genius part and fell in love with writing Paranormal Romance because, really, who doesn't love hot men and a happy ending?

When she isn't writing about things that go bump in the night, Karina designs Steampunk and neo-Victorian couture for gentleman hobbyists and ladies of questionable reputation. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with a husband, three cats, one rabbit and a passel of adopted gamer geeks.

The first visit to the Dark Mission alternate earth is an exciting dark romantic urban fantasy in which Karina Cooper deftly constructs her mythos inside of the fast-paced and action-packed story line. The lead couple is a terrific taboo pairing as he hunts and kills her kind as being the Blood of the Wicked who destroyed the world; now as he falls in love Silas targets her sibling in Operation Echo Location. This is a superb first act as hot romance and dangerous adventure delightfully merge in the Cooper world. Harriet Klausner
