Bad Blood by Kristen Painter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Really Chrysabelle could have saved herself a lot of grief if she had just meet the comar that she allowed to stay at her house as a favor to Dominic. I don't think anyone is going to be surprised to learn that Damian is her brother.
Most of the book revolves around Mortalis, Mal and Chrysabelle going to New Orleans to get the Ring of Sorrows. The fae that is holding it insist on Chrysabelle doing a favor for him before he will return it. Once she gets it they go back to Paradise City and Chrysabelle gets her signum redone. By using the gold from the Ring of Sorrows combined with her blood being contaminated with Mal's a strange reaction occurs and Chrysabelle recovers much faster then normal. She immediately returns to the Aurelian (Nadira) to learn her brother's name. Nadira refuses to tell her and kills her. Velimai sends Mal after her and he brings her body back, but then Chrysabelle returns to life.
