Review: Blood Rights by Kristen Painter
By: Kristen Painter
Publication Date: October 1, 2011
Description: Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a comarré -- 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.
My Thoughts: Blood Rights is a book that takes a common theme, and turns it into something so amazingly uncommon you can't help but love it.
I can't even find words to explain how I felt about this book. It's so different, yet so familiar. I absolutely love the idea of a vampire food source that's bread to be so. We all know vampire stories and what to expect, but trust me, you don't know this book at all. I loved the characters and genuinely cared about what happened to them. My heart sped at the right times and I (almost) cried at others. It was absolutely great and refreshing.
Blood Rights is told in multiple points of view. Although I am not really a fan, it didn't take anything away from the overall feel of the book. It was realistic and, like real life, there was not always a good ending or a bad ending, things just happened naturally. The storyline was really thought out and at times it was so fast that I may have missed a few points (I'll just read it again, don't worry *wink*) This book is a must read in my opinion. I can't wait to read the next one. You should read this one!
