It is hard to express just how awesome this ENTIRE series is, or the twists and turns that creep up on you and smack you in the face as Book 6 unfolds. Well written and epic in scope, this is a book… or rather, a series…. you should definitely put at the top of your TBR pile. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
After spending the vast majority of my life lonely, I came to this town to find answers about my mother, and instead, stumbled upon a secret society full of monsters I never knew existed outside of dark tales.
Now I’ve built a sanctuary, gotten in the middle of an ages-old feud between various monster factions, and somehow ended up with an ancient, queen-like tyrant targeting me, because my life sucks sometimes.
I don’t know how these things keep happening to me. They just do.
Tensions keep climbing, and everyone’s on edge while waiting and watching to see what Idun Neopry does next.
In the midst of all that, the secrets spill, the lies unravel, and the half-truths finally come to full fruition. It’s been one hellish snowball ride to make it this far, and I’m mostly ready for anything that comes next.
That’s a lie, actually. But I’d like for it to be the truth. For now, hoping for the best is all I have. Well, I guess that’s a lie too. Hope’s not all I have.
I also have a Van Helsing, who can slay a small army without wrinkling his shirt. Then there’s a Morpheous, who can toy with my mind in ways I never imagined. I’ve got a wolf, who makes it a goal to keep me human-ish. And there’s a vampire, who enjoys killing and stabbing.
Ancient alphas, old vendettas, super-complicated histories, mass-death threats, and a lot of personal baggage. That’s become a Tuesday morning coffee break to me by now.
Like I said, my life sucks sometimes.

Thoughts on Gypsy Truths
The conclusion to the epic and sweeping Gypsy saga finds us with Gypsy Truths, where all those wonderful, pretty monsters come out to play – including a few monsters we didn’t expect. It answers questions, ties loose ends, threads the tale and smacks a pretty bow on a story that has captivated so many of us. Even at a hefty (thank you, thank you!) 600+ pages, this is a book that you will want to read again and again… even if only to catch those subtle clues that are dropped like breadcrumbs along the way. It’s hotter than hot, action packed and exciting in a way only CM Owens can contrive.
It has been two days since I finished this book, and I am STILL mulling the complicated and convoluted tale. Details keep hitting me and clues are creeping out of the wood work, causing me to dip back into books 1-5 to catch the nuances I obviously missed along the way. I have even reread a few parts of Gypsy Truths, this time with a clearer understanding of just what I am reading, which offers a different perspective – and somehow makes the whole thing even more delicious.
It’s diabolical, twisted and so bloody perfect you’ll be humming creepy playground songs long after you finish the last page. Wonderful!
She’s barefoot and in a sheet again. It’s becoming entirely too normal for such an abnormal thing. (17%)
Oh fuck my life. I have a camel toe problem. I have a leather jumpsuit camel toe problem. (24%)

What are you reading today? Have your read this series yet? If not…. why? Seriously, get to it! =) How about other books by Kristy Cunning, a.k.a. CM Owens? There are so many to choose from, which one is your favorite? You can narrow it down to a series if you like. At the moment, All the Pretty Monsters is topping my list, but the Wild Ones also holds a place in my heart. *sigh* Love this woman!!!
