Book Description

Set in the world of the House of Comarré, Kristen Painter gives us a new novella about the price of freedom.
Maris's life as a comarré has come down to three options: escape her patron and spend the rest of her days looking over her shoulder, fight him for her freedom with the understanding it could mean her death or undergo dangerous experimentation to transform her blood into something even more powerful.
Before she can make a decision, she discovers the vampire who's been charged with sunproofing her blood isn't so fond of her patron either. In fact, Dominic is unlike any vampire she's ever met, but is she desperate enough to put her trust in another noble? Her heart says yes...

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction. September 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A nice introduction to her work. Interesting story line. Not the type of story I usually read, but it was entertaining to read something a little off the normal beaten path.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to reading the rest of the series... February 24, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I discovered this book series at the small bookstore that I often frequent. After I got home and looked it up, I found out that this prequel existed. It was short and didn't explain too much about the Comarré except that they are blood slaves to vampires. It does sort out the first part of the story which seemed to be missing from the first book. I would definitely recommend reading it, but probably after Book #1 (Blood Rights). I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really need more! July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this novella would help tie me over until Out for Blood comes out in October. I thought wrong. All this did was make me want it even more. Which is absolutely not a bad thing.

If you have NOT read the previous books in the House of Comarré series please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

In Forbidden Blood we get a new look in to how Marissa (or Maris) and Dominic came to fall in love. It's actually a beautiful story. It's funny how similar mother and daughter truly are even though as Chrysabelle grew up she had no idea who her mother really was. As a Comarré both she and her mom fell in love with a vampire, which is unheard of. Both worthy vampires, in my eyes. I do believe after reading this though, I have a new view and respect for Dominic. I was always iffy regarding him but I can say I am no longer thinking the worst of him.

You knew, having read the other books, that Maris was strong but I had no idea how strong. This novella just shows you how strong and determined she was for her freedom. Though it wasn't just her freedom she had in mind.

Is it October yet because I really need more. This is a series I absolutely love and I can't believe we're over halfway through it. Just two more books and it's over; this makes me sad thinking about it.

I recommend this to anyone who has read Blood Rights, Flesh & Blood and Bad Blood. If you have no read these, then I do believe it's best you read them first.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts well, weak ending July 15, 2014

A little disappointing - started off well but a weak ending. Left with a feeling that it was finished in a hurry.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book! November 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this book was great for a sneak peek kind of before the story kind of thing. I liked the relationship between Marrissa and Domenic and the whole Comarré - Vampire relationship as a whole was intriguing. I like stories where people break the rules and this series seems to be all for look forward to reading the rest!

My daughter loved reading this book. It only took her a couple of days and she was done. Every few pages she was running up to me, "Mum, guess whats happening now?" and then would give me a whole chapter worth of information!
