Publisher Comments:

Gothic fantasy meets vampire fiction in this debut novel from

Kristen Painter - full of politics, intrigue, and blood.

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.

Review:

"Intrigue and politics infuse Painter's unique vampire novel. Chrysabelle is a comarré, a human slave bred for beauty and high blood production. On the run after her master's murder, she will do whatever it takes to stay free and alive. Unfortunately, she accidentally took a dangerous magical artifact along with her, and now the ruthlessly ambitious vampiress Tatiana is determined to find her and retrieve it. Navigating the confusing world of her own species for the first time, Chrysabelle falls in with Mal, an attractive but curmudgeonly vampire exile living on the fringes of human society, and his ghost and shape-shifter friends, dragging them into her fight for freedom. Though the book is set more than 50 years in the future, it lacks almost all trappings of science fiction, focusing instead on the vampire court and its Borgia-level byzantine plotting. (Oct.)"
