This is the 15th book in this series and while it would probably be best to read them all prior to reading this one, you don’t have to. (I’ve read the first four or so and then this one and I loved it.) Yes, there are a few details that you won’t have but the overall story is terrific and easy to follow. Gin becomes a larger than life character that you can’t help but love. She cares about her friends and family and it shows. However, Gin is definitely deadly to those who cross her. So, don’t expect a warm and fuzzy story because there is plenty of violence in this one. But, I still loved it. It’s fast paced with a complex plot. There are multiple plots going on a once giving this story a great deal of depth. Not all of these plots are contained to just this book. Several are going to be seen in multiple books. This is not a bad things but it will have you wanting to read more about Gin. This is a unique world that is part of this one…..kind of an alternate reality. It seemed no sooner did I start this book and it was finished. That doesn’t mean that it’s short, it means that I was so wrapped up in it that I didn’t notice the time going by. This is a terrific fantasy with a kick-ass heroine.
When Finn learns that he has inherited a theme park, he decides that a weekend away with his foster sister, Gin and their significants would be relaxing. Little did they know that they were being set up and the weekend would be anything but relaxing. Suddenly they are involved in locating some missing jewels as well as fighting for their lives. It’s all hinged on Gin and if she can figure everything out. If not, some of them may not be leaving!
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 …
