Blurb (via Goodreads):
When a terror from the past threatens Gin’s friend and body-disposer, Sophia, Gin will stop at nothing to protect her, even if it means walking straight into a killer’s trap. Meanwhile, the rocky romance between Gin and Owen reaches a turning point—can they reunite and rekindle their love? Or will the things Gin has been forced to do in her line of work as the deadly assassin the Spider keep them apart forever? Assuming, that is, she survives long enough to find out…
I previously wrote a review of the last book of this series which you can read HERE. I said this in my last review and I will say it again, if you have been reading the series you basically know how the plot is going to go: badass bad guy threatens someone Gin cares about, Gin goes to kill bad guy, intense battle ensues, Gin barely survives but wins, Gin gets all healed up and back to normal via air magic. There you go, that is the plot right there. If are continuing to read this series it is for one reason and one reason only: you want to know what happens between Gin and Owen!
Don't lie, that's the only reason you've continued to read the series. After the third or fourth book, the plots become almost boring and repetitive. Don't get me wrong, I genuinely love Jennifer Estep and all of her books. She is a fantastic writer and she really knows her way around writing a battle scene, but this series could have been wrapped up two books ago.
For those who want to know what happens between Owen and Gin, well, I'm not going to ruin it, but there is a decision that is made between the two as to what happens next. Do they start seeing other people? Do they get back together? Is there a wedding in the near future? Has Owen told Gin that he just can't trust her, or maybe vise versa? Yeah, so not telling! You have to read the book to figure it out guys! ENJOY!
