Rate this:
The hotly anticipated ninth novel in the hugely popular Elemental Assassin series finds Gin Blanco on a dangerous mission to rescue a friend.

When I say you're a dead man, take that literally.

To me, killing people is like a day at the salon: cut and dry. Well, more like rinse and repeat when you moonlight as the assassin the Spider. But my last spa day ended redder than my freshly painted nails after a twisted Fire elemental and his goons kidnapped my close friend Sophia Deveraux and nearly killed her sister Jo-Jo in the process.

Up Ashland's most dangerous mountains, and deep into the heart of its blackest woods--I'll track these thugs no matter where they take Sophia. It doesn't matter what kinds of elemental magic they try to throw at me, my Ice and Stone powers can take the heat and then some. I will get Sophia back, over their dead bodies.

Because anybody that hurts Gin Blanco's family becomes a body.

I love this series. That's just the plain truth and this book was interesting because it explored Sophia's story - why is she the way that she is, what damage occurred to change her so drastically. A new villain, and barely in time rescues by Gin and her posse ask you to just sit back and enjoy the unreal, well woven story telling.

I wish that when creating assassin protagonists, authors didn't feel the need to "humanise" them so much. It makes for a mass of contradictions and also for a not very efficient assassin. I'd admire her more if she harboured less angst and scruples.
