Waiting on Wednesday: Bad Blood by Kristen Painter

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

Bad Blood by Kristen Painter


Samhain approaches, bringing with it the final melding of the mortal and othernatural worlds. No one knows just how much power the night holds...

Violent murders occur in Paradise City as counterfeit comarré are systematically hunted. The police and the Kubai Mata have more than enough trouble to keep themselves occupied. As war erupts at home, Malkolm and Chrysabelle head to New Orleans to recover the Ring of Sorrows. Chrysabelle is forced to make a life and death decision and will realize that her relationship to Malkolm may have fatal consequences.

The clock is ticking . . .


  1. Because I'm only having to now wait 24 hours till it comes out, and I'm getting a bit impatient!
  2. I loved the first book.  The mystery and the difference between Ms. Painter's vampires versus other authors' vampires is wonderful.  
  3. Yes, this book is dark, but the play and flow of the previous book, leads me to hope that this one will be just as amazing!
  4. Look at this cover.  The contrast of the black/gray/white with the blood red and gold.  It is a striking picture.   The beauty versus the deadliness of the cover can't help but hope and wonder if anyone will survive (That and the title asks the same thing!)
  5. I've read the first book, already bought and plan to read the second book, and am waiting for the third book, so of course I'm waiting!

What are you waiting for?

Happy Reading!

  2. Jessica,
    I knew you would like this one! I am dying in wait for it to come out. The fact that I got the first one as a galley, and then I HAD TO GO BUY the actual books says something :P
    Then again, I buy books, like some women buy shoes, clothes and makeup!

  3. I haven't started this series, but I have the first and I plan on reading it soon:)

  4. I highly recommend it... I have the first 2 books, and will be going to get the last one tomorrow... Or this weekend.

  5. Ooh I'm waiting for the first 2 in this series in the mail! It sounds really good!
