Book two in Ms. Painter's series finds Mal and Chrysabelle at odds over her delay in keeping her promise to help him find a way to remove his curse. The Covenant has been broken and the veil between humans and other-naturals is gone. As more and more humans discover the reality of vampires, shape-shifters,fey and fringe, the inevitability of war between them looms. Into this mix comes another group, the Kubai Mata, specifically in the person of Creek, a human ex-con recruited by the KM to recover the Ring of Sorrows. The triangle of Mal, Creek and Chrysabelle seethes with emotions barely held in check and confrontation between Creek and Mal over Chrysabelle threatens their uneasy truce. Meanwhile Chrysabelle is determined to do two things - help Mal to find the cure for his curse, and kill Tatianna, the vampiress who killed her mother. Miss Painter juggles these multiple plot lines like a master, keeping this reader turning pages far into the night. The pacing is excellent and the characters so well-drawn, you'll expect them to knock on your door. (If it's after sundown, don't answer.) I put no spoilers in this review to prepare you for the surprises at the end, but can only suggest you read and enjoy. This vampire series with a twist promises to become one of my favorites. If you haven't read the first book in this series,Blood Rights (House of Comarré) is more than worth your time and money.

* If you haven't read Blood Rights, I don't recommend reading this review unless you don't mind spoilers!

I enjoyed Flesh and Blood even more than Blood Rights! Much more! I guess it could be because there was much less explaining of things. Painter just delved right on in.

This book takes place not long after the events of Blood Rights. Chrysabelle is living in her deceased mother's home now, and Mal is still living in his dilapidated barge on the water - with Doc, of course.

Chrysabelle still owes Mal for helping her. She promised him that she would help lift his curse by visiting the Aurelian, and eventually she finds out the only way left for her to do that requires a blood sacrifice: her own blood.

Mal still refuses to drink from Chrysabelle, and neither of them are even sure that he owns her blood rights now that Fi is dead. Not to mention the weird sexual tension going on! These concerns are pushed to the back burner once these two are brought back together for a greater purpose. Not only do they have to make the sacrifice required to go see the Aurelian, but Tatiana has gained more power, and with the covenant broken - she is free to wield it against anyone she wants. Not only that, but issues with Dominic arise, issues that involve Doc.

Doc has problems of his own. Fiona is dead, yet he still sees wisps of her ghostly form floating around the barge, and eventually finds out that she is reliving her death at the hands of Mal every single night. Doc makes it his goal to bring her back, and has to visit the witch (a voodoo witch who lives out in the swamps, eck!) who cursed him to do it. In finding out what she wants in return, Doc is faced with an impossible task.

We also have a brand new character in this book. Creek.

In Blood Rights we read an original story but in Flesh and Blood the author uses two tools which I particularly don't like a love triangle and cliffhanger .

Chrysabelle and Mal have a strong connection and the other part of the affair Creek isn't a strong one to unbalance that no matter how much he tries.

Creek is a member of the Kubai Mata a secret organization to protect the humans from all the othernaturals, they are trained and capable of facing all kinds of dangers and they have a deep knowledge of things, he is actually a cool character but around Chrysabelle he acts like a love sick puppy. Oh and I forgot to mention that the Kubai Mata wants the ring of sorrow!.....

In the beginning of this book Chrysabelle and Mal are mad with each other but soon they accept the fact that once more they must work together not only to visit the Aurelian to get the answer to Mal's curse but also to save Doc from Dominic.

Tatiana is still a bitch!

Other than that, the way this books ends is the main reason for the two star review. I understand when a cliffhanger is necessary; I know when the author needs some loose ends to continue the story. In this installment everything is left unanswered, we have so many things unresolved that the final act with the witches was totally unnecessary .

The unfortunate thing is that I have already bought the third one of the series Bad Blood and it's the only reason I'm going to continue reading.

P.S I really like Mal!

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.
