After the shocking revelations of the previous book, Bitter Bite, the world of Ashland’s become even more sinister, and Gin Blanco (aka Ashland’s most fearsome assassin, the Spider) no longer knows who—or what—she can count on. Only one thing is for certain: danger and new enemies await Gin inUnraveled, Book 15 in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls “unbeatable entertainment!”
What could go wrong when you’re trying to unravel a decades-old conspiracy?
As the current queen of the Ashland underworld, you would think that I, Gin Blanco, would know all about some secret society controlling things from behind the scenes. I might be the Spider, the city’s most fearsome assassin, but all my Ice and Stone elemental magic hasn’t done me a lick of good in learning more about “the Circle”. Despite my continued investigations, the trail’s gone as cold as the coming winter.
So when Finnegan Lane, my foster brother, gets word of a surprising inheritance, we figure why not skip town for someplace less dangerous for a few days? That place: Bullet Pointe, a fancy hotel resort complex plus Old West theme park that Finn now owns lock, stock, and barrel. At first, all the struttin’ cowboys and sassy saloon girls are just hokey fun. But add in some shady coincidences and Circle assassins lurking all around, and vacationing becomes wilder—and deadlier—than any of us expected.
Good thing this assassin brought plenty of knives to the gunfight …
Still absolutely love this series. Gin is still the queen of the underworld, even if she doesn't want to be. A vacation seems like just the thing they need so she, Owen, Fin and Bri go to a theme park Fin's mother has left him. I swear I yelled at them that it was a trap, but these characters just didn't listen! Gin's paranoia that they all make fun of her for really is what keeps them alive half the time. The flashbacks and explained a lot.
I wanted to know more and more about the circle and I was a bit surprised by how involved certain characters were. The theme park made me laugh, I 'saw' all the cowboys, cowgirls, and whole wild west theme in my head. I just love how involved I feel in the story. The way the author writes, I feel like I'm there joining in (I wish!). The action is awesome, the friendships are amazing and the story line is great!
It is a 5/5 for me. Of course you should start with book 1 but really any of these books are good.
