Format: Paperback
Chrysabelle is a comarre and from birth has been trained to be the perfect blood slave for a vampire. When her patron is murdered and she is the prime suspect she has to run from everything she has ever known and take refuge in the human world. She is going to need help if she wants to remain hidden from the vampire nobility but when she meets outcast Mal she gets more than she bargained for. Mal doesn't want or need any new complications in his life. He is already dealing with a double curse - the first that causes him to kill anyone he ever drinks from and the second that has caused all of his victim's names to appear on his skin and their voices to become a constant drone inside his head. He's already on the verge of insanity and the scent of Chrysabelle's blood may just be enough to push him over the edge.

I was really excited about Blood Rights but I have to admit that I found the first half of the book a little confusing. Kristen Painter has built a complicated and detailed world and it took me some time to get my bearings and start to understand how everything fits together. I was fascinated by the idea of the comarre though, they are like geisha's to their vampire patrons - pure blooded, beautiful and trained to be graceful companions. They also have their secrets from their patrons though and I have a feeling we've only just begun to uncover them. I still have some questions about how various parts of the comarre / patron relationship works and I'm hoping these will be answered in future books in the series.

Chrysabelle can be incredibly naive and innocent about the human world, although she is over 100 years old she has had very little interaction with anyone outside vampire nobility and her comarre community.

Blood Rights: House of Comarré: Book 1

You know Amazon have this deal where they send out daily emails on books that are similar to others? Well, most of the time I ignore it as there are very few instances where a story which is compared to an author I'm familiar with, actually is similar - I hate disappointments!! Anyway, this came through last week and if it wasn't for the absolutely stunning front cover of the promoted book, it would have been ignored as per protocol!! Lesson here, NEVER judge a book by it's cover! Ever.

Whomever designed Ms Painter's cover for Blood Rights deserves a Book Cover Oscar (or whatever goes in a publishers world).

This story has a slightly different stake in comparison to other urban fantasy stories. Chrysabelle was born to be a Blood Slave, her (substantial) value based on the quality of her blood and sold to the highest bidder amongst the Nobility. The story doesn't share much insight into her past and true purpose, however as the story progresses we start to see glimpses of her abilities and suspect that the Comarre are much more than they are portrayed.

Set up for a murder she didn't commit on the eve of her Century Ball, Chrysabelle runs away from the supernatural world, hoping to clear her name and start living a normal life. Betrayal and murder follow her and she ends up being forced to accept support from an unlikely source - Malkolm, a vampire who is anethema, banished from his world for an unpardonable crime.

Between them, they need to find the murderer, deal with political intrigue, survive the ghosts (in Malkolms' case, thousands!

Format: Paperback
Whilst Kirsten is perhaps better known for her Romance titles from various E-Publishers, I get the feeling that this series, acquired by Orbit in the UK, is going to be the one to launch her to the reader market as a whole. It has decent pace, a dark world setting and when added to the authors own clever prose as well as dialogue makes this the start of a very interesting series.

As with other books in the genre it has vampires, ghosts, her own equivalent of a Were as well as developing other aspects but for me, it's the characters that are key to driving the title forward as this gang of racial misfits fight their own battles to come out stronger as a whole. It's clever, it has plenty of twists and when added to a bigger picture hinted under the subtext, it's a series that I think will surprise more than a few readers. Watch out for books two and three in the coming months.

If you're a fan of the recent paranormal books you'll probably like this.
Don't be fooled by the cover or the 'fantasy' description, this is another paranormal novel with a bit of romance with all action and no atmosphere.
I liked it at first but the ending seemed flat. I predicted all the little twists/surprises at the end so I was disapointed. At first I thought it was fairly original until the vampire faces changed and turned to dust- like Buffy. Also for all that originality the vampire ancestors are the usual people - Vlad the impaler, and Elizabeth Bathroy. The world seemed very complicted with new creatures added all the time. Too many curses. Sometimes it seemed a bit contrived- a character happenes to have this power just at this point to help them move forward, no mention of it before. The simplest way to review this is do list all the good points and bad points:
bad points:
- cliched, unbelievable character called Tatiana
-cliched evil laughs by evil characters
-Buffy like vampires, no original
-Vampire ancestors not original
-Too many new things added throughout the book, hard to follow
-too many curses
-predictable end
- no atmosphere, just talking and action

good points:
-the comarree are original
-the heroine is not a damsal in distress
-you are hooked and want to read on for the most part

I liked this book at first and I hate to write bad things about it() but I got so annoyed when it fell flat at the end. It's as though the writer rushed it or gave up. You might like it if you read paranormal novels and you don't mind them being all the same. But if like me you prefer books with atmosphere, a world you can see in your mind and you like to be shocked by the story- it not being predicatable.
