The Mysterious Case of Mr. Strangeway: St. Croix Chronicles | [Karina Cooper]

The Mysterious Case of Mr. Strangeway: St. Croix Chronicles

Although I have only been part of Society for two years, I am already desperate to escape its confines and eager for adventure. I will do anything to escape the boredom, even become a collector of bounties. My name is Cherry St. Croix, and I may be young, but I am old enough to know when I am in over my head. My first collection seemed easy: Mr. Strangeway's debts have come due. Yet the wastrel remains one step ahead of me, and my efforts are hampered by another collector. What's more, this simple hunt becomes the forefront of a conspiracy....

Publisher's Summary

"Although I have only been part of Society for two years, I am already desperate to escape its confines and eager for adventure. The world my deceased parents have left me is nothing more than a gilded prison, and I will do anything to escape the boredom, even become a collector of bounties.

"My name is Cherry St. Croix, and I may be young, but I am old enough to know when I am in over my head. My first collection seemed easy: Mr. Strangeway's debts have come due, and the purse for his capture is hefty. Yet the wastrel remains one step ahead of me, and my efforts are hampered by another collector after the same coin. What's more, a simple hunt becomes the forefront of a conspiracy that leads me on a chase through London's low-class streets.

"Not only does my pride demand success, but the well-being of many rests upon the choices I make - failure is not an outcome I can live with."

    "Love"
    Would you listen to The Mysterious Case of Mr. Strangeway again? Why?

    Yes and no, I love getting the background information to set up the whole series but many of these info are also found in the novels so it really depends. But I won't say a straight up no to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I still really favorite Cherry, because we got to see how she grew to be the great collector she became to be in the series. We also got to see more of her innocent side which was fabulous and she still was a strong and intelligent girl that she is at this young age. But Hawke still makes my spine tingle in a good way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'm not sure. I really liked when the action picked up and got going at the end and always when she meets with Hawke.


    If you could rename The Mysterious Case of Mr. Strangeway, what would you call it?

    The Beginning, or Steam

    "Good story"

    Story
    "Steampunk Fantasy"

    You are introduced to Cherry St Croix a fifteen year old laudanum addict and wannabe collector. KC easily meshes historical events with steam-punk elements as we get acquainted with Cherries dramatic past and her first foray into the collection business, a bright young girl being slowly suffocated by overprotective stuffy indomitable staff, she is not sure she can wait the interminable period till she reaches twenty-one to inherit her wealth.

    Resourceful, naive and pigheaded she embarks on her first adventure, though as always, things are not as they first appear.
    The novella kept my interest and is written well it just missed that all important element to get me really excited but tantalised enough to be ready to read the next one in the series.

    Karina Cooper gives life to Cherry so much so that you can easily imagine her shenanigans which kept me listening.
