Overview

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.

I loved this book. Every moment was exciting. I couldn't put the book down. I often found myself reading when I should have been sleeping. The whole comarre concept is very unique. I can't wait to read the next book. I strongly suggest reading this series.

It's getting BETTER! The second in this series brings even more excitement. And we are introduced to new characters, witches, as Chrysabelle, Mal and Creek come to a truce. Tatiana is still up to no good and is so deliciously wicked! This series is so original. I can hardly wait until the next release. Thank goodness that is later on this week.

It just keeps getting better!   I love that this story kept right up with where it left off.  Even more twists and turns than the last one and it  was difficult to put down.   I am loving the the connection between the main characters and the bond with all the supporting!  Amazing read and I am delighted to read the next!!

Picking right up, the story continues from book 1. Now I just have to decide, Mal or Creek?

This is the second book in the series. Chrysabelle is a strong character dealing with the harsh revelation that the woman she grew up thinking was her aunt was really her mother, and now she doesn't have the opportunity to know her since she sacrificed herself in Chrysabelle's place. Mal is trying to wait for Chrysabelle to grieve but he has lived with his curse for over 50 years and wants it removed. With the promise of it's removal so close at hand he has grown impatient. Add in a sexy new male character to the sexually frustrating mix and you have quite an interesting read. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to see what comes next.

I don't know if I mentioned this before but I LOVE these covers. Just had to say that. They are the reason I picked the books up to begin with. Sorry, just had to mention that. :-) Flesh and Blood picks up not long - a couple weeks - after the end of Blood Rights. These poor characters cannot catch a break! Things did not end well for them at the end of the first book, and they are not dealing well now. Chrysabelle and Mal should support each other but instead they are ignoring one another. And then we meet Creek. While I don't usually like the "second guy" - in my opinion in books the first guy introduced is the right guy - I like Creek. I still don't think he is right for Chrysabelle but I would not be upset with them being a thing; IF Mal found a way to be happy too. I have a feeling Ms. Painter is going to continue to put us all - readers and characters alike - through the ringer. Tatiana as per usual is a hateful nasty beastly creature. Honestly nothing she does surprises me anymore. She is a fabulous villain, and I really cannot hate her more. I am afraid to say that, because now I am worried she will do something horrible. All in all, Flesh and Blood is a great continuation of the House of Comarré series and I very much look forward to continuing on.

Flesh and Blood continues the story that we met in Blood Rights and the ride just keeps on getting better. With the knowledge that we have from the first book there is even more story to sink your teeth into and a possible love triangle starts to emerge. With all the drama and excitement from the first one continuing through book 2 by the end you are so invested in these characters the cliffhanger is almost unforgivable ..... almost ... but let's be honest ... We all secretly love the anticipation and the wait to see what will happen next. Another 5 star read from Kristen Painter!!! Brilliant!!! V""V
