Review: Blood Rights by Kristen Painter

Book: Blood Rights (House of Comarre Series #1)
By: Kristen Painter
Publication Date: October 1, 2011
Publisher: Orbit
Description: Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a comarrĂ© -- 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.
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!

I'm not usually a fan of multiple POV books either. I get really irritated when it gets to a good bit and the POV changes and is slow again. But this one sounds awesome and the cover is to die for! I can't think why noone else has ever come up with the idea of vampire breeding their meals. It's genius.

Lan: I do too! It did that a bit in this book too, bt it reminded me more of a tv show when the commercial breaks come. You get annoyed but then "Oh look thats an interesting idea. I should buy that" and then Bam! back in the action!

I'll admit, I got it because of the cover. I stayed because of the story.

Yeah, I loved it, too! I actually read it from galley a few months ago & although I've been planning to buy the trilogy & re-read this one & finish the series, still haven't, but I'm hoping to get them soon! I hope you'll love the other books just as much!
