Rebellion has a price…
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.
Now, 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.

I really don't want to explain a lot of this book because I believe it's maximum power is the fact that it is completly new on its area. I mean, vampires. Check. Shifters. check. Comarré. New. Relation between Comarré and vampire. New. All that comes from it: amazing.
I'm completly amazed by Chyrsabelle. She's this tought super chick (a bit cliché) that finds herself out of her deep when her patron is murdered and she is being accused of it, coupled with the fact that she has to run away and she is a prime suspect. So, she ends up paired with this hot and tortured (another cliché) vampire, who falls for her (cliché, yes, I know) and decides to go with her in exchange of her riding him of the voices on his head (remnants of his killing days).
Apart from all the clichés, the book introduces a new kind of relation between these two characters born from the Comarré thingie. And that's all new. And gosh I loved this world of the Comarrés. Seriously.
And you can also find another "broken" characters, like the shifter that can't shift; or the ghost. Or the mafia vampire. Those are all amazing. All the characters have motivations that move them and makes them very believable.
All the plots that come from the relation of the characters between them are so well done you can actually believe every bit of it. Their motivations, fears, happiness... is all incredible. I really have loved this book so much because of the characters that inhabit on it. And because it may have some clichés, but the way it deals with them turns them kind of unique.
C'mon, read the book! you won't regret it! :)
