Red is definitely my color. Good thing, because in my line of work, I end up wearing it a lot.
Most people shy away from blood, but for an assassin like me— Gin Blanco, aka the Spider—it’s just part of the job. Still, it would be nice to get a night off, especially when I’m attending the biggest gala event of the summer at Briartop, Ashland’s fanciest art museum. But it’s just not meant to be. For this exhibition of my late nemesis’s priceless possessions is not only the place to be seen, but the place to be robbed and taken hostage at gunpoint as well. No sooner did I get my champagne than a bunch of the unluckiest thieves ever burst into the museum and started looting the place.
Unlucky why? Because I brought along a couple of knives in addition to my killer dress. Add these to my Ice and Stone magic, and nothing makes me happier than showing the bad guys why red really is my color.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
Gin hates to shop and she is getting ready to go with Finn to a big Gala event later, so they go to find Gin the perfect dress for the Event. As in regular fashion trouble finds her were ever she goes. She is in the dressing room trying on a hideous yellow dress , when she has to do her special brand of killing. After the threat is taken care of in the dress shop, her dress is covered in blood, anyway she didn’t like that dress it wasn’t her color. This book was a fast-paced, roller coaster ride from page one.
Jennifer Estep does it again! I love the storyline and the character development throughout, and each book gets better and better. If you have not read any of the books you will be lost. This book deals with some of Gin and Owen’s relationship, and how it has taken a big hit. Gin had to kill his ex-fiancé that he had not seen for umpteen years, even though she was a homicidal killer. The Elemental Assassin series is an awesome. I want to be Gin when I grow up. I give this book 5/ 5 stars.
