OUT FOR BLOOD is the fourth book in the House of Comarré series and I really enjoyed it. The pace was quicker, the POV changes were handled more smoothly, and the plotlines were integrated much better.

Chrysabelle has had the Ring of Sorrows melted down and stitched into her skin as signum. It is giving her some odd powers, but she is still more concerned about searching for her brother. At least she has a lead now; she believes it is Damian, the comar kidnapped by Daciana and Tatiana. He just happens to be in the same place as the half-vampire child, Lilith. The KM are determined to have the child and they are not above forcing Chrysabelle to retrieve her.

At the beginning of the book, I was worried that Mal and Chrysabelle's relationship had devolved, but Ms. Painter quickly turned it around and finally gave us the smoochies we had been waiting for. I really enjoy Mal and Chrysabelle as a pair; they work well together and are dedicated to one another. I loved seeing them both finally admit to their feelings. There were some really beautiful moments between the two of them in this book. The ending was a complete game changer though and I already cannot wait for the next book.

Fi and Doc were sweet together as always though I don't think their story has finished playing out. I feel like there will still be repercussions from the events in this novel and especially from the mate fight in the arena. I can't wait to see how Doc develops as pride leader.

I'm not sure I see how Yahla was really necessary for the plotline, but I am happy that a new KM section chief has been appointed at the very least. A basilisk, who would have guessed?

The first House of Comarre book in the series was great: a tight plot, nice world building and a lead hero and heroine who had depth. Unfortunately, each succeeding book has been worse and worse and I finally gave up on this series with this book.

Chrysabelle's actions become more selfish and childish as the series progresses. In the first book, she seemed like a strong character with depth, but each succeeding book opens with her brooding in her house and deciding to embark on another adventure for poorly explained motives.

The first book focused on only a few characters to good effect. However, this last book took the cake as nearly every character-major and minor-had a storyline that needed to be followed, expanded upon and needlessly discussed. And the ending of the book had me rolling my eyes-too obvious and dramatic. It felt like I was reading Twilight.

All urgency from the first book lessens as the series progresses. Everyone makes a big deal about Samhain and the breaking of the Covenant but those events take a back seat to all the character drama.

The main plot of the book could have been intriguing but between all the meandering threads for the ever-increasing cast of characters, it got lost. All in all, I felt like I was reading a really bad soap opera.

Oh. I am still recovering from finishing the next to last installment in the House of Comarré series. The author did an amazing job at adding twists along the way. There was one point, near the beginning, where I was blindsided and then one toward the end where she really threw me for one. It hasn't happened much lately, where an author can throw curve balls at me that I hadn't at least suspected. But damn, kudos to Kristen Painter for this. My mind is still trying to grasp the last curve ball...that one...wow.

However, while my mind is still reeling over those surprises, it's also weeping. Yes, my mind (and the rest of me) are weeping. The ending was like a stake to my heart. With one more book left though, I know it will all work out. Well, maybe not all of it but what matters most to me, better work out! :)

This book is filled with a lot of craziness of what people are willing to do for family. Basically every character is dealing with something family related and they all go through different lengths to make sure they protect those they care for most. It's very touching though sometimes idiotic. But, like they say, people go to great lengths to protect those they love and it's the absolute truth.

I do have to say this is probably the first book where I didn't mind reading from Tatiana's point of view whereas all the previous books I was just like argh, enough of you. Taking care of Lilith surely has changed her and not for the better. (Well, I mean that in the sense that she's not as cold as she once was, which will be her downfall)

If you like vampires and are looking for something different and maybe more mature, then I highly recommend this series. Though it's categorized as adult, I do believe younger readers can also enjoy it.

Out for Blood by Kristen Painter is the 4th book in her House of Commare series. This story picks up shortly after Bad Blood left off.

Chrysabelle is still trying to discover the ramifications from using the Ring of Sorrows gold as her signum. After she initially pushes Mal away again, she regrets her actions and tries to make amends. She finds herself in a situation, that literally kills her, and Mal thinking he has lost the love of his life, watches in amazement as she comes back to life.

Finally as the story progresses, we get to see the romance between Chrysabelle and Mal comes to fruitation. Mal loves Chrysabelle with everything he has, even though the voices of the beast inside him push him to be evil.

But Out for Blood has many continuing stories ongoing, with the characters we have come to enjoy in the earlier books:

Tatiana is the villain, and her usual nasty self, but now she has a child she adores, a child who becomes the first born vampire, and whom will also be a daywalker. Tatiana, who is feared by all, will stop at nothing, even plot to kill those against her, who stand in her way.

Chrysabelle is also determined to find her brother, and save him from Tatiana, and asks Mal and friends to help her. With her unusual signum, which has given her abilities that she needs to find more about, Chrysabelle is now one of the strongest Commarre's. Tatiana of course wants her.

Doc, who is a feline shapeshifter, and Fi, who is a ghost, are the other romantic couple, and now that Doc becomes the leader of his pack, the laws require him to marry the former leaders wife. Fi must go over and beyond to find away to free Doc, even if it means putting her own life on the line.
