About the Author

Viola Carr is the author of the Electric Empire trilogy. She was born in Australia, but wandered into darkest London one foggy October evening and never found her way out. She now devours countless history books and dictates fantastical novels by gaslight, accompanied by classical music and the snoring of her slumbering cat.

"This debut electropunk monster mashup gives you exactly what you never knew you wanted: The classic story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with a genderbent twist."--barnesandnoble.com
"There's plenty of twists and turns, with a dash of magic and a wink at the classic literature."--Parkersburg News & Sentinel
"I was utterly hooked and happily stayed that way for the next four-hundred-some pages. ...It's dark, intense, and sometimes disturbing, and man is it awesome."--Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger

"...Ms. Carr takes us into an almost-familiar world, drawing us further into the dark just a bit at a time. If you thought steampunk was played out, here is an utterly convincing revivification."--Wall Street Journal
