What is is about? (Blurb pulled from GoodReads… because YOU try to describe this…)
Imagine searching your whole life for answers, and then finally finding them. A part of you is excited to know the truth. Another part of you is damaged, because you realize why it was so hard to learn answers.
Secrets aren’t usually very pretty.
In the midst of all of it, the four monsters I’ve gotten too attached to are about to be reunited with the one woman they all once loved so deeply that they sacrificed everything to have an eternity with her.
They said they hated Arion, but I never see hatred when they’re around him. I see frustration, resentment, anger, and pain, but never hatred.
They say they hate Idun, but until she returns, I won’t know how true that really is. All the pretty monsters don’t have simple emotions, because everyone has lived so long that it’s gotten entirely too complicated to feel anything too much.
The only way to figure out what happens next is to stop stalling and start doing, while silently hoping it doesn’t cost me everything I never knew I wanted…until it landed in my lap.
My life sucks so hard sometimes.
**CANNOT BE READ AS A STAND-ALONE
I reread the entire series prior to this books publication, just so I would be up to date and ready to role when it hit Kindle. Considering the complex nature of this plot and the details that are so casually thrown down, I suggest you do the same.
Read my reviews of the Previous books in “All The Pretty Monsters” series:

- Gypsy Origins (Book 3) by Kristy Cunning – A Book Review
This book starts with a bang and just keeps going. Violet is THE Female Main Character Urban Fantasies and Paranormal Romances try to craft. She’s tough as nails, yet somehow sweet and genuine, absorbing punches as well as facts – and just keeps right on moving. Her life is a mess and the situation is fast becoming untenable, but she is strong enough to carry the load – if only the guys around her will quite underestimating her!
Each book ups the ante and adds layers to the romance, along with plenty of mystery and enough violence to sate a vampire (cough, cough). I’m not going to talk details or theories, as I refuse to spoil this engrossing series for anyone, BUT, if you DO want to jump down that rabbit hole, this link will take you to the closed Gypsy Moon Spoiler Room. There you’ll find fellow devotees and enough material to keep your Gypsy drowning mind immersed in conspiracies. You’ll see me there too! =)
I can’t say enough about this book or this series. Each installment just gets better and more intense, pulling me deeper into the intrigue and flushing my mind with questions and theories. Who is Violet really? What is Violet? Where is Idun? What is Marta’s game? Are the guys….. ok, won’t say that last one – just visit the Spoiler Room AFTER you read the Book!
First Person, Multiple POV
- Very well written.
- Laugh out loud funny.
- Well edited.

- All the characters! Deep and very human, despite their total lack of humanity.
- THAT COVER!
- 3 week (Or more!) wait for book 5.
- That cliffhanger….
But Vance is a man of fine comfort and unapologetically plans each piece of comfort into his intensely uncomfortable days. (16%)
“That’s sort of the problem. I feel like the conduit for your feelings for them because you have heterosexual body parts with a homosexual mentality. I’m not sure I’m okay with simply being a conduit,” (17%)
His kiss is the kind of kiss that makes smart girls make bad decisions, even when they’re not forged from broken pieces of lies and secrets. (35%)
It’s hard to put the pieces together when you don’t even know what questions you should be asking. (79%)
