When killing people is your job, there’s no such thing as a vacation. Then again, how often does an assassin live long enough to enjoy her retirement? In this line of work, you either get lucky or you get dead. And since I destroyed my nemesis Mab Monroe a few weeks ago, all of Ashland’s lowlifes are gunning to make a name for themselves by taking out the lethal Spider—me, Gin Blanco. So I’m leaving behind my beloved barbecue joint and heading south with my baby sister, Bria, to cool my heels in a swanky beach town. Call it a weekend of fun in the sun. But when a powerful vampire with deadly elemental magic threatens an old friend of Bria’s, it looks like I’ll have to dig my silverstone knives out of my suitcase after all. Complicating matters further is the reappearance of Detective Donovan Caine, my old lover. But Donovan is the least of my problems. Because this time, the danger is hot on my trail, and not even my elemental Ice and Stone magic may be enough to save me from getting buried in the sand—permanently.

It is a transition book, that is very clear, and it does tie up an old thread from the first five books, but s...
Cheering for Gin seems to be a regular occurrence for me with this series and this was certainly no different, either with the bad guy or with the reappearance of one Donovan Caine--total arse!Go Gin, go Gin, go Gin.That last bit with Donovan was so good!Can't wait to read more of the series.
It’s no secret that I love this series, so here are a few things I liked. I still cannot stand Donovan Cain. He’s a pompous ass! Bria and Gin have a lot of things they need to work out. Gin starts feeling second best after meeting Bria’s BFF Gin still manages to kick ass while she’s on v...
