Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, is a semi-former assassin. There’s just one more person left Gin needs to kill – Mab, the woman who murdered Gin’s mother and sister. After missing a prime change to kill Mab, Gin discovers that Mab has not only a bounty on her head but her sister Bria’s as well. Mab wants to use Bria as bait to lure the Spider and finish her once and for all.
For as high a body count as Gin has collected through the series, she’s also collected an eclectic group of friends and family. Estep’s characters are incredibly vivid and continue to develop. Gin and Owen still have great chemistry and their relationship continues to mature.
This latest pulse-pounding adventure with Gin and her crew finally has Gin’s big showdown with Mab. With a couple of twists along the way, fans will be excited about this climactic battle. And thankfully, despite a final showdown, the series will continue. This is a must-read for urban fantasy fans. Estep’s world of elementals, giants, dwarves, and vampires is truly inspired and always entertaining. Action-packed, with plenty of humor, magic, and heart, this latest installment is no exception.
Probably not a good book for a child, with it's overall theme on assassination. However Jennifer Estep has a series set in the same universe that is written for teens, maybe some pre-teens. It is the Mythos Academy young adult urban fantasy series. I recommend you check it out for your kids!
