URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: House of Comarre 2: Flesh and Blood - Kristen Painter

Release Date: 06/10/11


With the Ring of Sorrows still missing, and the covenant between othernaturals and mortals broken, Chrysabelle's life outside the realm of vampire nobility is about to take another downhill slide. She's vowed to help the outcast Malkolm find a way to lift his curse, but that means returning to the home city of the vampire who's trying to kill her. The breaking of the covenant has also activated an ancient organisation designed to protect mankind - the Kubai Mata. And when Kubai Mata Thomas Creek comes to Paradise City, Chrysabelle finds herself torn between the need to save Malkolm and the desire to stay on the path of light. Finally fulfilling her vow to Malkolm proves devastating for Chrysabelle. If she survives, what's left of her life will never be the same.


The second book in the House of Comarre series and one that will enhance the authors reputation with the way that she weaves her eldritch spell upon the reader. The principle character is complex with emotions running sway with what many would deam common sense, the choices have far reaching outcomes and when added together with a fast moving plot as well as the authors own writing style, it’s a title that won’t let go.

Add to this some great prose, a passion within where love and treachery go hand in hand alongside a whole host of new problems that require solutions and it was more than satisfactory for this reader.
