Blood of the Wicked
A Dark Mission Novel
“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!”
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.
