Rebellion has a price.
lacy gold mapped her entire body. A finely wrought filigree of stars,
vines, flowers, butterflies, ancient symbols and words ran from her
feet, up her legs, over her narrow waist, spanned her chest and finished
down her arms to the tips of her fingers.
Born into a life
of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a
comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When
her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her
running into the mortal world...and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast
vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.
Chrysabelle and Malkolm must work together to stop a plot to merge the
mortal and supernatural worlds. If they fail, a chaos unlike anything
anyone has ever seen will threaten to reign.
Chrysabelle is a Comarre’ that is on the run. A Comarre’ is a Hybrid Species
that’s body over produces Blood which makes them perfect for the Vampire
society, but they are only for the Noble Vampires. Her Patron Algernon has been
Murdered and some of the other Noble Vampires think she’s the prime suspect. She
is relying on her Aunt Maris whom is a freed Comarre’ to help her prove her
innocents and live as a free Woman. She ends up at a Bar called Puncture in
hopes of finding a man that her Aunt has told her could help but just her luck
he hasn’t been seen for a few nights. Trying to adjust to the Kine or Human
World is not easy since all Chrysabelle has known is the Vampire World.
Malkolm is a Vampire that lives is solitude and is haunted by the kills he's made in the past thanks to a curse that was put on him years ago. He's a very unstable being but just might be the only person that can help Chrysabelle obtain her freedom. The dynamic between the two main characters is kind of push pull which I enjoyed. I like to see them overcome their stubborn side and let fate have it's way. This book is full of supernatural being like Shifters, Faeries, Ghost, Vamps and some I've never heard of before! I recommend this book for all Paranormal Lovers. Fast paced, new twist to Vampires that I haven't read before, and the relationship between Chrysabelle and Malkolm will leave you running for the next book in the series!
