Review: By a Thread

Gin Blanco returns in book six of the Elemental Assassin series. After killing Mab Monroe, her cover as The Spider has been blown and she has all the wannabe thugs out to get her in attempts to prove themselves. Talk about annoying, you'd think her taking out a big villain would cause people to not try messing with her. Anyway, she desperately needs a vacation due to all the pesky people. Her and Bria hit the road and head back to Bria's old stomping grounds. They meet up with Bria's BFF, only to find out that Callie, Bria's BFF is being threatened to sell her restaurant or else a vampire will do something bad like torch the place and kill her.

Gin and Bria are having pretty bad tension in this book. I've noticed similarities between Bria and Donovan in the past and knew he'd make a reappearance sometime soon. Much to my surprise, he actually reappears in this book as Callie's fiance. Gin basically has to deal with Donovan's bs while trying to kill the vampire that is out to get Callie. As per norm, there is a lot of plotting, fighting, and a big blow out near the end. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, and will be getting the next one in the near future. If you're a fan of Urban Fantasy, I highly suggest this series.

  1. I really liked this one. Didn't we learn more about Sophia in that book? GAH, I really need to catch up, and I think at this point that means another reread. *headdesk* At least these are quick reads, right? Anyway, I'm glad you're still enjoying this series. Great review!

  2. This is one of those series I know about but never got the chance to put my hands on...I'm glad you're loving it and, since I love urban fantasy, I'll probably have to make some space for it!

    1. I would think so!! They didn't mess with the villain since she was a badass, so why would they mess with the lady that killed her?! *shakes head*

  6. I am so happy you are having a blast with this series!

    Bria can be a piece of work although I understand her moral dilemma but still!
