Gin, Gin, Gin! Gin is back and she is ready to get her assassinating on. The spider is well known by Mab Monroe now, but Gin Blanco isn't. The book was really fun and fast paced. I like the blossoming relationship between Gin and Owen. Is she, dare-I-say IN LOVE? Gin is also faced with the decision to tell a certain someone who she is. I always hope things will work out perfectly for Gin, but they never do. I really want this whole Mab Monroe thing to come to an end. I am kind of sick of it. I know there are other storylines that take place during her vendetta against Mab, but I am personally done with the storyline. The book is excellent and I just hope Estep wraps up the whole Mab thing in the next one, because I am beginning to feel like I am reading stretched out stories to fill a void of some kind. Like I said the story is great and it isn't tired yet, but it is starting to get the feeling that it might be. Maybe I am just silly, but I am tired of certain lingo the author is using. Like 'Luck being a capricious bitch' or Gin's obsessive counting. I am not saying this book is bad at all, but I am looking for a bit of a change up. Not too much, but I was her get Mab already!
I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.
But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead.
Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too.
The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. .
