Cysgodion (Diaries of the Cwn Annwn Book 6) IS CASSIMIR AS BAD AS HE SEEMS? JO PILSWORTH

Casimir Gosselin. If Fane was bad, Casimir was well beyond that. A psychopath and barely leashed by his sire, the Alpha of the Gosselin Pack. If there was one thing on which both the Cwn Annwn and the Anghelescu Hellhounds knew, it was that Casimir Gosselin was their enemy.

You have the picture? I was the personification of psychopathically evil. Strangely enough, the encouragement to write my side of the story has come from my sister, Alix Gosselin, now mated to Bran Cadwgan, Beta of the Cwn Annwn. Now, I could give you some clues. One thing is certain, I am not some sad, misunderstood being. I own what I have done and to whom I have done it. The question is whether you think that what lies in the shadows is justified.

Cysgodion is a novella of 44,000 words, and ideally should be read before the Hellfire Pack series. Either way, you have to decide what makes Casimir Gosselin tick.

 Method to the MadnessReviewed in the United States on June 23, 2020Verified PurchaseIn this book, we’re given an in-depth look into Casimir’s past, a look that left me with the impression that I had him all wrong. As the middle son to the Alpha of the pack, he was groomed to be Beta while his older brother, Alpha. Pack life is no easy gig though and survival isn’t guaranteed. It’s that which drove him to become Psycho Gosselin.

When he is eventually freed from his role, he feed the need to mend things with his half-sister. I loved the depth of the bonds that Casimir felt for her and his mother. Even though he was largely an unlikeable character, there were glimpses into his personality that made me feel as if he could be so much more. The things his father put him through scarred him deeply, but I was left with the impression that there is hope for Casimir in the future. Even for all he’s been through, I don’t believe he was truly a psychopath.

A. J. Kohler4.0 out of 5 stars Casimir isn’t what he seems to beReviewed in the United States on May 27, 2020Verified PurchaseCasimir Gosselin is the middle bastard son of the alpha of the Gosselin pack. His older half-brother is being groomed to be the next pack alpha, assuming their father lets him live that long. Pierre Gosselin is quite a piece of work and not exactly an inspiring father figure. Casimir is in line to be the next beta – but survival is hard in the world of wolf shifters, and in this pack, even tomorrow is not guaranteed, no matter who you are.

Casimir creates the persona of the Psycho Gosselin, a psychopathic killer at Pierre’s orders. He is so convincing in the role that he utterly alienates Alix, his half-sister, to the point that she leaves the pack completely to live among humans.

Times change, and Pierre and Casimir’s older brother are brought to account. Casimir, now largely freed of the need to keep up the masquerade, can begin to bring his plans to fruition and see if he can mend fences with Alix.

There’s going to be a whopper of a story following this one, whether he succeeds or not.

REVIEW


Gweniver4.0 out of 5 stars Were-Bear Paranormal RomanceReviewed in the United States on July 30, 2018Verified Purchase

Jo Pilsworth has created a very interesting universe of magical creature, with a prominent role for shifters and paranormal romance. In this book we follow the story of the tormented love at first sight two were-bears. There are many characters from other books who show up in the story, which can make it a little confusing if you’re trying to keep up with who is who. While there is a lot of adventure, the focus is on the romantic relationship between Sergei and Kaitlyn/Karma.
