Before the Witches (Mass Market Paperback)
Not currently shipping from publisher – Subject to future availability
In America, they didnt care about witches. But all that was about to change.
Katya Zhuvova fled a country that feared her gifts, but her escape to Seattle left her at the mercy of a ruthless man. With no one left to turn to, Katya hatches a desperate escape plan. Undercover Detective Nigel Ferris is determined to bring down a prostitution ring, whatever the cost. In order to get the answers he needs, he attempts to win the trust of one of the prostitutes involved but one look at the deceptively sultry Katya and the cool, objective cop disappears. Before either can put their plans into place, Mother Nature shrugs: a cataclysm rocks Seattle, and life is turned upside down.
Brought together by chance, Nigel and Katya are in the fight for their lives. Surrounded by death and fear, shattered by immeasurable loss, they have only a bond forged in fire to cling to as they struggle to survive in a world gone straight to hell.
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 blond gypsy and thrived in the new cultures her family settled in. When she (finally) grew up, she skipped the whole genius part and fell in love with writing because, really, who doesn't love making things up for a living?
One part romance fanatic, one part total dork, and all imagination, she writes dark and sexy paranormal romance and historical urban fantasy. When she isn't writing, Karina is an airship captain's wife and Steampunk fashionista. She lives in the beautiful and rainy Pacific Northwest with a husband, four cats, two rabbits, the fantasy of a dog, and a passel of adopted gamer geeks.
Praise for Before the Witches…
“Chilling, gripping, and totally believable, this e-original novella is an engaging story in its own right and the perfect segue into Cooper’s “Dark Mission” series.”
, “BEFORE THE WITCHES was edge-of-the-seat good and I couldn’t stop reading until I was finished.”
“WOW! What an absolutely fantastic start to this series…it packs a punch and a half in there. Karina rips the world as we know it apart.”
-Thoughts of a Scot
“If you like dramatic, highly intense, passionate novels Before the Witches is for you! Before the Witches is a pulse-pounding, breath-stealing nonpareil feat! I’ll be impatiently waiting for the next story in this incredible series!”
