“As Gin Blanco, aka the assassin the Spider, I’m used to having a target on my back. But ever since I started investigating the secret society known as the Circle, that target seems bigger than ever.
Still, I’m trying to relax and enjoy the events leading up to my friends’ wedding when I learn that an old enemy has returned to Ashland. And that’s the just beginning of my latest nightmare. Soon, I have Circle goons watching my every move, but I have no choice but to continue searching for a key piece of evidence against the evil group.
The deeper I dig, the more horrifying secrets I uncover, and the more dangerous things become for me and my friends. Just when I think I finally have a handle on things, a shocking revelation shatters my heart and leaves me with an ugly realization—that betrayal is the sharpest sting of all …” – Amazon
I have been following along with Gin’s adventures since book one, Spider’s Bite, so you can say that I am invested in Gin and all of her friends… and enemies. As with any series there are some books that aren’t as great, but Sharpest Sting by Jennifer Estep is another great addition to the Elemental Assassin series!
As with any long running series I find my review to be short because I don’t want to spoil anything for those who have been along for the ride with me and to really say anything other then, very well developed characters and awesome world building, to those starting the series, well, it won’t mean much.
So if you are new to the series, buy this book right away to support an excellent author, but also start with the first book so you can be like the cool kids and have all the inside info.
And if you’ve been enjoying Gin from the beginning, this book throws a major bomb at you in regards to the Tin Man. Gin ultimately handles it well, but dang!!! And of course there’s the awesome fight scenes and love scenes. One other thing I’ll leave you with is I am loving the flirtation between Silvio and Gin’s hired muscle… Wait. What?!? Gin hired someone to protect her highly feared assassin self?!??? Grab yourself a copy of Sharpest Sting, and you can thank me later.
