Forbidden Blood is the story of Maris and Dominic. This is a great introduction to the Comarre series and one I recommend you read before starting Blood Rights, but then again it may be best you read the first 2 books. I'll leave that decision to the reader.
Though the story is short it has the necessary ingredients to spark interest and keep you reading. Forbidden Blood gives us an insight of the struggles, drama and sacrifices Maris & Dominic had to make in order for her to obtain her freedom.
The one complain I have about the book is how I was left wanting to know more about Maris and Dominic love affair, it was so short and though I know she "loved" Dominic her love for him do not feel as great as his love for her.
Forbidden Blood answered a lot of questions I had after reading the first 3 installment of the series, but it also left a few questions unanswered. I now get to understand why and how Dominic became the man he is. In all, this short read gave me a perspective on Maris's actions and decisions. It also gave me a glimpse into the sacrifices Dominic had to make in order to be with Maris.
All that being said, I was beyond thrilled when I found out Kristen Painter was writing a novella bout Maris and Dominic. Being a huge fan of the series I had questions about their relationship. I wanted to know how they came to be acquainted, why Dominic became anathema and what ultimately caused Maris to seek Libertas. Throughout the series Dominic has come across as a borderline bad guy but we know that he and Maris loved each other deeply so what caused them to separate? What happened to turn him into the outcast vampire I'd grown to know and love?
While Forbidden Blood does answer a lot of the questions I had, it didn't answer them all. I enjoyed getting to know both Maris and Dominic better and it was nice to see him from another perspective. He was so much different than I expected him to be. Noble vampires are usually outcast and made anathema because they've killed one of their own. I guess I expected Dominic to be cold and calculating even as a noble but he wasn't. He was likeable, caring and sweet. Reading this story, watching him fall in love and give everything up for Maris was beautiful and tragic. Beautiful because he loved her enough to risk everything to be with her; tragic because in my opinion she really didn't deserve him. She may have loved him in her own way but she didn't deserve all that he gave up for her.Read more ›
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.
