Mal is a vampire but a low class vampire who killed another of his kind. How can this outcast help a murder suspect?
Review: House of Comarré … what can I say. I really wanted to fall in love with this series but there is just something there that makes this series very … one-dimensional. Yes, the characters were well written. Yes, the plot was good. But there were big holes in the plot, questions that were not answered, and an ending I saw coming from a mile away AND called about 1/3rd of the way into the book. It was ok but it wasn’t fantastic!
In my opinion, this book gets:
