Book Review: Flesh and Blood (House of Comarré #2)

From The Back-flap:

“Those born into the comarré life produced blood in rich, pure, powerful abundance…

With the Ring of Sorrows still missing, and the covenant between othernaturals and mortals broken, Chrysabelle and Malkolm’s problems are just beginning. Chrysabelle still owes Malkolm for his help, but fulfilling that debt means returning to Corvinestri, the hidden vampire city where neither is welcome.”

Courtesans, Vampires and Superhuman Vampire Slayers – OH MY!

This is the second book in the House of Comarré Series.
The first book is Blood Rights and it was awesomesauce.
ahsahsalh!!!! Can I please have more Mal and Chrysabelle interaction?! *pouts* I was really looking forward to seeing what happens next between those two but apparently I must wait. And now that Creek, the mohawked Kubai Mata vampire slayer, is in the picture I am wondering who she will choose. It’s a decent love triangle, however I am not digging their willingness to share the beautiful Comarré. I’ll take a little more jealousy and woo-ing, please.

Aside from my frustration with the lack of romance between Mal and Chrysabelle I loved this book! The characters are developing even further and I am really enjoying getting a point of view from all of the main characters, much like the first book. The plot thickens as the search for the Ring of Sorrows continues. The build-up is incredible. This book really just left me wishing the third book was out. You can bet I’ve already pre-ordered it.

If you have yet to read the first book in these series, I would recommend reading that one first as Ms. Painter just delves right into this novel without much explanation of prior events. I really enjoyed that aspect since I don’t need any more explaining but it might be a little hard for someone who hasn’t read the first book.

Lastly, I do find it a tad bit funny that all of the main characters, minus Chrysabelle, have curses on them. I guess this a common thing occurrence in Corvinestri and Paradise City. I’m sure glad I don’t live there!

“I longed to know what it felt like to have one person eclipse everything bad in your life – be a place of pure joy.”

I still highly recommend this book for paranormal book lovers. This saga has so many new spins on the old vampire/shifter/fae stories! And it will surely leave you wanting more.

My Rating:
