Old habits die hard for assassins.
And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through.
Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen. Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second. Good thing I’ve got my powerful Ice and Stone magic—and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson—to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a good chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me . . . no matter what I have to do to make that happen.
Oh, the whining and repeating. It almost made me DNF the book and the entire series because I just couldn’t take any more whining. For an assassin, Gin sure complains a lot. And if I have to listen to the story of the night Gin’s family died one more time, I’m seriously quitting this series. There is only so much repetition I can take.
If those two elements were taken out though, this was a thrilling, and very series advancing book. A lot happens, and it really pulls Gin’s whole chosen family together. It seems that with each book Gin’s friends get closer and closer, and this book really brought them into one tight family. It was very heartwarming to witness.
It will be interesting to see where the story line goes from here since there is a huge story arc wrapped up. I think the next book has the potential to either make me relove the series, or quit it altogether.
