Gothic fantasy meets vampire fiction in this debut novel from Kristen Painter - full of politics, intrigue, and blood. Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a comarre -- a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world...and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks. Now, Chrysabelle and Malkolm must work together to stop a plot to merge the mortal and supernatural worlds. If they fail, a chaos unlike anything anyone has ever seen will threaten to reign."show more

Our customer reviews

I have to admit that it took till Chapter 6 to then get me interested in the book. But after that chapter it was like wildfire! I couldn't get enough from each page. Blood Rights: House of Comarre is an alluring mix of elegance, fangs, seduction, thrill, romance, and some nitty gritty. A series you most definitely not want to miss out! Since birth, Chrysabelle was raised to be a comarre. The most praised of all the comarres. But when her patron vampire nobel is found dead and her being MIA, all eyes are on her for the murder. Limited to whom she can trust and where she can go, she's left to do things she never imagined she would. Going against all the things she's been raised to do for more than a century. Malkolm, an anathema among vampires has his own personal demons. He bares not one, but two curses that ceases to give him a breathe of air. Not that he needs it. But you know what I mean. Curse 1.) For killing his own sire, he is cursed by whomever he sinks his fangs into he will drink them dead. Curse 2.) For every soul he kills through drinking their last drop of life, their names will forever be inked on his body and their voices will plague his mind. Always telling him to "drink" "kill" "feed." An unending struggle to stay sane from all the voices. Blood Rights just beckons you to read it all the way through and begging for more. It's well written, perfectly paced, and the twists are spellbinding. I'm just blown away on how engaged I was. I'm so happy that the series will release a month right after each other. Blood Right Book #1 - October 2011 Flesh & Blood #2 - November 2011 Bad Blood #3 - December 2011 Another one to add to the 2011 MUST READS and Favorites!show more
