Sexy Mal might have his dark-hansome-and-dangerous routine to perfection, when it comes to placating an angry Chrysabelle. But he might have just run into some competition when a mysterious man enters Chrysabelle's life. Creek is a human with some extraordinary abilities working for the Kubai Mata, a society dedicated to exterminating otherworlders. He's currently on assignment, but his interest in the comarré is definitely more than the job description.
Trouble between Chrysabelle and Mal is only the tip of the ice berg in this action packed novel. The secondary plot was very good too. It's all about Doc trying to bring Fiona back, but to do that he has to get into some deep trouble. Trouble that involves betrayal, and deceit. Sadly the third string of the story is about Tatiana, who continues to be her annoyingly evil self. Again, I found myself skimming along her POV sections.
Overall, Flesh and Blood is an exciting continuation to the Comarré novels. If you loved the first book, you'll definitely love this one too! More action, more drama, more sexy men, and most importantly, more Malkom! And if you haven't read this series yet I strongly suggest you do.
Her relationship with Mal also continues to grow and we see more instances where their need for each other can only end up in an explosive capitulation - whether for good or bad is yet to be seen. I totally adore Mal, he's so tortured yet so strong when controlling his inner demons around her. The two of them are the epitome of opposites - him so bitterly dark and her filled with glittering golden light - so delicately intertwined that one could not survive the other.
Bring in Creek, a sexy-as-all-hell Seminole who has been indoctrinated into a sect (Kubai Mata) with the primary goal of protecting humans while wiping out the vampire race, and you have the makings of a very interesting love triangle. Does he balance the light and dark? Can he be trusted even though he seems pivotal to Chrysabelle's development? Strangely enough, they both suit her and each provide something Chrysabelle needs - gonna be interesting to see how this one pans out as Ms Painter hasn't given any indication on who Chrysabelle's main squeeze would be :-) ... but my heart is set on Mal!
With the covenant broken and the veil between humans and othernaturals down, the story is blown wide open - war is inevitable as othernaturals struggle for power, evil sees further opportunity and humans come to grip with a world previously hidden from them.
I enjoyed this book just as much as the first but there were few things that I personally found distracting. On the plus side, Ms Painter is introducing so many new threads I am reassured of a long and (hopefully) enduring reading relationship as those threads come together. However, I don't enjoy jumping between different POV continuously - it's ok every now and then but this story got to the point where every few pages you'd switch to another character and/or subplot. The subplots are so involved, and influence the rest of the story so much, there are times it feels as if Ms Painter has actually combined several books into one...
Which brings in Doc and Fi. I love them, their relationship is dark, painful and yet filled with so much hope. The lengths they will go to just to be together - it breaks my heart to see Doc trying so hard, taking so many risks, just to make Fi happy.
Apart from that, the book is very well written, the world building is really good and the concept is original and very interesting. I am so looking forward to starting book 3, Bad Blood, later today.
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!
