It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most. To the public, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker—Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists. At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer . . . who is about to save her life.
What I thought:
These are just getting better and better the more I read. The heat is on and there is no turning back for Gin after this novel. I loved the dynamic of the characters and the introduction of Detective Coolidge. Estep has created a wonderful plot and has written it to perfection.
I just love novels that have a continued theme. And at the same time I don't. I just want to know what happens, but I love the whole process and all the details and planning that go into stories as such as this series. I'm a bit sad that the next book, Tangled Threads, is scheduled (for now) for May of 2011. But this is definitely one series that I will be revisiting and an author that I will be keeping an eye out for. Jennifer Estep has definitely earned a place on my favorite author list. If you haven't tried this series yet, you really should pick it up! You won't be sorry!
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
