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.

Once again I am out of words after reading one of Kristen Painter's books. I have so many things to say yet I can't find the way to express how much I loved it. Kristen Painter's knack for writing fantastic prose is what puts her in the list of awesome writers of urban fantasy.

Her House of Comarre series has proven to be one of the hottest urban fantasies series out there. As usual, her ability to make these characters come to life is amazing. Out For Blood starts right off where Bad Blood ends. The action & drama in this book won't disappoint, Chrysabelle and Mal are still working together and defending each other's back and of course their proximity and attraction only adds to the sexual tension that exist between then.

The plot follows the same line of events as in the previous book. Now that the bad guys have taken possession of a very rare vampire breed the action begins. Expect the same quality of writing, the characters dialog and interaction is fascinating. Their struggles and needs only increase the tension, and this mix of emotions creates an awesome read. If you haven't read the first three books in this series you really need to get to it. The characters are fantastic, smart, sexy and quite skilled. This series have so much to like, shifters, vampires, demons & fae, the list goes on.

Get ready to enjoy Mal and Chrysabelle's interaction; there are plenty of changes in their relationship. Their trust for each other only increases their feelings and the undeniable attraction that exist between them. The Kubai Mata still keeps an eye on everything otherworldly and has promised retaliation, and my oh my the possibilities are endless with the introduction of a new characters.
