Book description: 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 neither of them is welcome in.
The discovery that Chrysabelle has a brother could mean reneging on her promise to Malkolm, something that might make him angry enough to loose the beast living inside him. And fulfilling her vow could prove devastating for Chrysabelle — especially when you throw in power hungry witches, dead fringe vampires, and the Kubai Mata.
Review: Flesh & Blood is the continuation of the first book of the Comarre. It starts right off where Blood Rights ends. Like in the first installment of the Comarre series this book is filled with action. I enjoy reading this book just as much as I enjoyed reading the first one. There is uniqueness to Kristen Painter’s writing style.
In this installment of Flesh & Blood we are introduced to a whole new set of conflicts and emotions. Stakes are high and the action that follows some of the characters is a lot of fun. We are also introduced to new characters, characters that add excitement and purpose to the story. The plot is as enjoyable as the characters are; there is not a dull moment in this series.
Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty romance in the story, desires and wants from all characters. The passion builds up, the feelings between characters are slowly developed and well set, the wants and desires are well played and the realization of certain wants brings the necessary passion to make this story a page turner.
There is a lot going on in this story, a vampire starved for power, a comarre trying to come to terms with her new life, a shifter who is willing to risk his life to help his beloved ghost, a vampire who still doesn’t get used to his heart beating, and the Kubai Mata (a secret society). All this can get confusing if you do not read Blood Rights (first installment of the Comarre Series).
Chrysebelle and Mal have a whole new set of obstacles to overcome. New feelings and old feelings come to play an important role in the story, sacrifices are made and paths are chosen. This is a nonstop action pack read; one that introduces new challenges, new heroes and more evil.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a kick-ass, nonstop action, complex characters and witty heroine read, the House of Comarre has it all.
Great series and it totally deserves 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (hearts)
