Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters co-author Ben
H. Winters is back with an all-new collaborator, legendary
Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, and the result is Android
Karenina an enhanced edition of the classic love story
set in a dystopian world of robots, cyborgs, and
interstellar space travel.
As in the original novel, our story follows two
relationships: The tragic adulterous love affair of Anna
Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the more hopeful
marriage of Nikolai Levin and Princess Kitty Shcherbatskaya.
These characters live in a steampunk-inspired world of
robotic butlers, clumsy automatons, and rudimentary
mechanical devices. But when these copper-plated machines
begin to revolt against their human masters, our characters
must fight back using state-of-the-art 19th-century
technology and a sleek new model of ultra-human cyborgs
like nothing the world has ever seen.
Filled with the same blend of romance, drama, and fantasy
that made the first two Quirk Classics New York Times
best sellers, Android Karenina brings this celebrated
series into the exciting world of science fiction.
