Publisher's Summary

"Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I'm Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I'm retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day, when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren't aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox.
"Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, Im beginning to wonder if Im really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I'm a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn't made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man...dead or alive."

What the Critics Say

"The second chapter of the first-person 'Elemental Assassin' series is just as hard-edged and compelling as the first. Gin Blanco is a fascinatingly pragmatic character, whose intricate layers are just beginning to unravel. Estep has truly hit the jackpot with this outstanding series!" (Romantic Times)

The powers are out at last

Gin is an ice and stone elemental and at last you are starting to see her powers. You are starting to feel the character now and her "brother" Finnigan and her cook Sophia you are also starting to warm too. I am still not convinced by her romance with Donovan Cane which is boring, however there seems to be a sniff of a new love interest which is very intriguing. In fact I will endeavor to go to book three to see how this plays out.

It does frustrate me that she doesn't practice her powers as I am sure this would mean that she would be able to beat some of her opponents instead of coming close to death all the time. Thank goodness for JoJo.
