Publisher's Summary

I'm not all that special, really. I'm sure there are a lot of girls with old gypsy blood who see the dead, have killer cults hunting their family, and turn into something that gets scary when they panic. Yep. I'm just an ordinary girl. I wish people would believe that. 

I've been labeled as one thing or another for most of my life: Death Girl. Crazy Gypsy Girl. Gothic Chick. Monster. 

It took my mother's death for me to finally start getting answers about what's really been going on. Unfortunately, most of the answers come from men . . . who aren't just men. Somehow, I've gone and landed myself in a world truly filled with monsters, and I'm starting to think this is where I should have been all along. 

Only . . . I don't understand what's going on. I'm walking into the middle of a story that's thousands of years old, and I'm the new girl on the block who doesn't have a clue how this world even works. My only guides happen to be the most lethal of the bunch. 

I've gone and drawn attention to myself, and the ones paying attention are the ones everyone else seems to fear. How do these things always happen to me? 

Contains mature themes.

***All the pretty monsters***

I can't get enough of this series, its hilarious, sexy and smart. I love Violet and Anna their both hilarious lol and the four alphas well their hot as sin. Melissa Moran is perfect as Violet while it took me a while to warm to Shaun Grindle with all those accents it's just weird at first. I would have preferred a manly deep voice for the alphas but I'm liking it now thanks.

Promising start

I enjoyed the overall story but found some parts were missing. The character/s suddenly seemed in one place or doing something with no explanation how it happened & made me think did I zone out & miss that part. Also every sentence seemed to include the words portacole / gypsy. I wonder if the author got a bonus for every time those words were used, because we're constantly reminded she's a portacole gypsy, it became monotonous. I did love the comic relief of ghost Anna & her sexual imagery. I liked the female narrator & took me a while to warm up to the male narrator as its told from different POV.

couldnt finish

although I find this book interesting, I couldnt get past the narrator's. the female was ok I've listened to books by her before but the Male voice was too much. I couldnt really distinguish who was talking when he was reading..like which character. the female had no accent for them and I hate that. if one has an accent so should the other. I'll go physically read the book because I was about 9 chapters in and I'd like to see what happens but definitely cant deal with listening to it.

Fantastic!

Gah! I've been following these books as they've come out hoping for the day they might hit audio. The story is fantastic, unique, and thrilling. A wonderful mixture of classic horror stories, with a sense of humor that beats all others in my book. Twisted and delightful. I eagerly await the rest on audio!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I love this series. Like, I want to have babies with it and buy it gifts just so it knows how special it is. These books are on my reread list because they are so fantastic and the audible is another way to enjoy. Do yourself a favor and read/listen to them all ASAP.

Phenomenal

I absolutely LOVED this audio book. The performance was extremely well done and was very pleasantly surprised as this is the first audiobook that I am aware of by Kristy Cunning. I was amazed at how the narrators captured the tone of what the characters were feeling. I am extremely excited about being able to listen to the other books that this author has come out with as I will probably end up getting them all!

Great start to a great series.

I love this story but I do not care for the guy narrator. It is too much. There is so many pauses and weird exclamations of phrases.

No spoilers

I've listened to book 1 and 2 so far. At first I had trouble getting into this book I think it was the narration Morgan was fantastic but Grindell took some getting used to. Cunning/Owen always writes a good story but this one starts slow very slow for me it took me towards the end to fully get into it but I stuck with it and ended up loving the book and even came to really like Grindell. This story is complex the information you get is very much needed. My advice is to stick with it because it takes off and you won't want to stop listening. This story is not a standalone. So be ready. This series is going to be fantastic in true Cunning/Owen fashion.

Great book, meh performance

I adore this book series and was excited to see the audiobooks getting released. While both the readers have good voices their reading styles grate on the nerves a bit and clearly neither are big fans of the book because they don't follow the cadence of the writing. I don't begrudge the credit I spent, but this isn't an ab I'll be listening to over and over. The books I've read a dozen times and recommend them highly in that format.

Not my kind of story

I tried to get into Gypsy blood but all the characters were lacking to me. Even the main heroine was not enjoyable for me. The narration was good though. I won’t be continuing this series

Dull and poorly read

I ended up returning this one without even finishing it. The male reader is particularly dreadful at accents and the story was too dull to hold my attention enough to put up with it.
