Review--Flesh and Blood by Kristen Painter

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.

It's been months since I read Blood Rights by Kristen Painter, the first in her new House of Comarre series, so it took me a bit to remember what's what in Flesh and Blood. But it wasn't long before I was totally sucked in!
We have a new guy on the block, Creek, who's very mystery and apart of the KM. But that's only the beginning, there's still lots of problems going on and Chrysabelle and Malkolm are still getting back on their feet. Plus Tatiana is still hot on their trail, wanting the ring of sorrows.

There's so much that happens in this book since it's told in multiple third person p.o.v.'s, and yet it's not nearly as chaotic as I might be making it sound! Really if you've read books with multiple third person p.o.v.'s then you know what to expect. There's just so much, it's hard to pinpoint the highlights! And just as you get sucked into one p.o.v. you get sucked into another!

The ending was pretty heart pounding too! So many things were happening, each event as serious and important as the last! Such as Chrysabelle trying to help Mal rid himself of his curse. And there are some shocking developments throughout the book! One was pretty huge that happened fairly early on! Oddly enough, it didn't have a huge placement in the book though, perhaps in the next one.

Also there were a few cliffhangers at the end. Things happened that were just like wow! So naturally at the very end you're left wondering what the hell will happen next! Not in any real agonizing way though. Nothing totally torturous! And since the next book comes out tomorrow, there's really no killer wait for me! Yet I will be moving on to other reads before I get to that one!

Overall rating 4/5 stars
