Description Copperhead de Tina Connolly:
Stuck in a marriage with the wealthy and controlling Alistair, she lives at the edges of her life, secretly helping Jane remove the dangerous fey beauty from the wealthy society women who paid for it. But when the chancy procedure turns deadly, Jane goes missing - and is implicated in the murder. Meanwhile, Alistair's influential clique Copperhead - whose emblem is the poisonous copperhead hydra - is out to restore humans to their rightful place, even to the point of destroying the dwarvven who have always been allies. Helen is determined to find her missing sister, as well as continue the good fight against the fey. But when that pits her against her own husband - and when she meets an enigmatic young revolutionary - she's pushed to discover how far she'll bend society's rules to do what is right. It may be more than her beauty at stake. It may be her honour...and her heart.
TINA CONNOLLY lives with her family in Portland, Oregon, in a house that came with a dragon in the basement and blackberry vines in the attic. Her stories have appeared all over, including in "Strange Horizons," Lightspeed, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. She is a frequent reader for Podcastle, and narrates the Parsec-winning flash fiction podcast Toasted Cake. In the summer she works as a face painter, which means a glitter-filled house is an occupational hazard.
