Which is stronger: blood ties or a battle-tested friendship? That’s the question Gin Blanco asks when a friend’s long-lost relative strolls into town. The suspicious reunion is a surprise for everyone—and a big problem for Gin. Book fourteen in the New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series RT Book Reviews calls “unbeatable entertainment!”It’s not easy being queen bee of an underworld abuzz with crooks and killers. Wielding my potent Ice and Stone elemental magic will only get me so far—my real secret is my tight-knit makeshift family, a motley crew of cops and criminals, dwarves and playboys. My foster brother Finnegan Lane is my right-hand man, but when his suddenly not-dead relative comes back into the picture, I’m the one on the outside looking in. It’s funny how life works: one minute your best friend is rock-steady, and the next he’s doe-eyed and buying into this whole loving-relative routine to the point of ignoring you. I’d like to be happy for Finn, I really would. But all of my instincts are telling me that beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This person might have avoided the grave once, but I’ll put anyone who hurts Finn in the ground—for good.

“You should know this,” I said in a cold, hard voice. “When you hurt Finn, I will kill you.” She gasped again, her blue eyes widened, and her hand flew to her heart, as though she were truly startled by my poison promise. Bitter Bite proved why the exciting Elemental Assassin series is such a popul...
Gin Blanco is back. This time she isn’t fighting bitter enemies. This time she’s trying to not lose her brother Finn when his mother mysteriously re-appears from the grave. After reading a number of books about the same character, I tend to lose interest, but not with Gin Blanco. This is the third ...
For the most part, I've enjoyed the Gin Blanco series, but this story wore very thin, very quickly. I realized a good way through the book that it was a bit of a rehashing of the Owen/Salina story, just with different characters. It did impart some new information about some of the major characters,...
And no one to blame but myself. This is the 14th book in the series. And, oh my, has it been going stale. Constant deja vue and "yes, I know exactly how this will play out". It was not a bad book. It is just time to either really re-new this series with a fresh direction or let it die a dign...
