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 in Unraveled, 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 …
deliciously delightful adventure
By all things urban fantasy, I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy of Unraveled. Nothing makes my day like knowing I’m about to immerse myself in the world building and characters of Jennifer Estep’s imaginings. AND, of course, I was not disappointed.
Unraveled follows almost immediately after the events of Bitter Bite. Gin is keep a close eye on her foster brother Finn, especially following the aftermath of his mother’s betrayal. She is also keeping both eyes out for clues on the mysterious “Circle”. The same circle that has ties to Finn’s and Gin’s mother.
Finn receives an unexpected inheritance that includes a Dolly Worldish type theme park. Knowing it is probably a trap but still wanted to learn more about the circle, Gin, Finn and their significants head down to the park to check it out.
Circle assassins are lying in wait and its up to Ginn and her posse to wrangle up the bad guys.
All the key factors are there to make this an amazing read. Magic, mayhem and a group of fascinating friends and family are there to back up Gin and her incredible ability to think her way out of insurmountable odds. There is some romance but it takes the back seat to the amazing tale Estep has woven for us to enjoy. In other words, Estep whipped up a deliciously delightful adventure. 15 novels and quite a few novelettes and this series is still going strong.
I received this copy of Unraveled from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books in exchange for a honest review.
The Wild West is back
This review is from: Unraveled (Elemental Assassin) (Mass Market Paperback)
I received this ARC for an unbiased review. I just love Jennifer's writing voice. I really like this series. She gives us a strong flawed female, even though she an assassin and Queen of the underworld, you can relate to her feelings. I hate giving spoilers in a review, but I want to give a little background. Gin is at a Bullet Pointe theme park and resort, because her foster brother Fin inherited for his mother Deirdre's death. They go there to check out the place and hopefully to find out more about The Circle. I don't want to give any more away because you just have to read it. It well written and pulls you into the story. I highly recommend this series.
Jennifer Estep never disappoints. This book (like every other one is this series) is Amazing! Couldn't put it down until it was finished! 5 stars!
