Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon.

I'm Gin Blanco.

You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I’m retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren’t aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox. Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I’m a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn’t made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man . . . dead or alive.

This will be a short review because I am way behind on things right now and I have to get the post for Vemon going :) I liked this book. Not as much as I liked Spider's Bite but enough to want me to keep reading. From the blurbs on Venom and Tangled Webs...I want to get the Tangled Webs, looks very cool.

I like Gin's balls. She is a strong character and has a good sense of right and wrong (mostly). I like Finn, he is one of my favorite characters. I did have a problem with Donovan...he is just becoming more and more of a tool and I say good riddance! I enjoyed Ms. Estep's writing style, it feels a bit hard-boiled, which I liked. I can't wait to read Venom :)

  1. We had opposite feelings on this book. I liked it much better then Spiders Bite. I thought it moved at a much faster pace. I can't wait until my copy of Venom arrives.
