Karpov Kinrade is the pen name for the husband and wife writing duo of bestselling, award-winning, multi-genre authors Kimberly Kinrade and Dmytry Karpov.

Together, they write fantasy, paranormal, mystery, contemporary and romance novels and hook readers into new and exciting worlds with writing that blends side-splitting humor, heart-wrenching drama, spine-tingling twists and sigh-inducing happily ever afters.

Tell me about YOUR book:  We have many books! But the one we are currently working on is the second book in The Nightfall Chronicles, House of Ravens. (Book 1 is Court of Nightfall.) This is a superhero urban fantasy set in a dystopian future with advanced technology mixed with medieval knights and orders. In this world is Scarlett Night, a young woman who thought her life relatively normal until an Angel attacks her family, killing her parents and leaving her for dead. When a Nephilim, a being part Angel/part human, saves her by turning her into one of them, she is thrust into opposing sides of a silent war. She joins her parents’ secret society of Templars to train as a Knight, and she becomes Nightfall, a Nephilim rebel determined to see justice done.

USA TODAY bestselling author Karpov Kinrade brings together the excitement and intelligence of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and The Mortal Instruments. 

You think you know what is right and what is wrong? Then tell me if this man should die. He is my enemy. He is to be my end. 

He is the one I love. 

I have spent my life in shades of grey. I have died and returned to a world of color. I have fought an Angel and lived. I have kissed the Prince of Ravens. I have faced the Lord of Night and made him kneel. I was accepted into the Four Orders, and I created the fifth. I freed the Shadow of Rome. I sat upon the Twilight Throne. 

The man asks for my surrender. He asks for peace. He is too late. The girl he knew is gone, and death is in her place. I am Nightfall, and this is my story. You think you know it? 

Think again.


About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
