Fans of urban fantasy should prepare for a new kind of vampire–one that feeds off of tears instead of blood. Descended from an ancient line of creatures that gain their energy from human tears, Cassandra Gray depends on human sorrow to live. Only Cass has grown tired of living this life and wants to live like a human, especially now that she's met someone worth fighting for.
The summary is disappointingly short, but it's enough to pique my interest. Lately, I've been reading lots of fantasy, and one of the vampire theories is that they need to feed off blood (or tears in this case) for human emotions. I'd love to see where Jones is going with this. Plus, there's bound to be romance in this novel too.
Besides, just look at the cover. Doesn't it make the book look so yummy
