(mini review for a mini book!)
Gin Blanco, aka the assassin the Spider, might have finally killed her nemesis, Mab Monroe, but that doesn't mean that it's smooth sailing. Gin goes to Mab's funeral to say her goodbyes and runs into some of Ashland's most notorious underworld power players, including Jonah McAllister and Phillip Kincaid. McAllister wants her dead, and Kincaid has his own murky motives when it comes to the Spider, and Gin once again finds herself fighting for her life. Only this time, she might wind up in the cemetery right next to Mab.
(Minor spoilage in first paragraph if you haven't read Spider's Revenge #4)
This is a short novella that fits right after Spider's Revenge and right before her upcoming book, By a Thread. It deals with her feelings about Mab's death and her role in it. It also deals with her recuperation and the aftermath of several of the city's underworld rulers. There is non-stop action and an opening that you know leads you right up to the next book. Seriously, this is a great in between novella. One that gets you a little more information as to what is going on in our heroine's head as well as... surprise surprise... Jonah McAllister and Phillip Kincaid. I really enjoyed that.
Only complaint? Not enough Owen. But then again, it isn't his book... I'm just a greedy wench and want more Owen. :D Seriously, if you love this series, you need to pick up this novella to go with it. It's currently $1.99 where you buy your ebooks.
PS... If you are curious about the next book By a Thread, I'll have the review coming up in March and a blog post by Jennifer Estep on March 5th. There will also be a giveaway involved. Just sayin'... ;D
