After the shocking revelations of the previous book, Bitter Bite, the world of Ashland’s become even more sinister, and Gin Blanco (aka Ashland’s most fearsome assassin, the Spider) no longer knows who—or what—she can count on. Only one thing is for certain: danger and new enemies await Gin in Unraveled, Book 15 in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls “unbeatable entertainment!”
What could go wrong when you’re trying to unravel a decades-old conspiracy?
As the current queen of the Ashland underworld, you would think that I, Gin Blanco, would know all about some secret society controlling things from behind the scenes. I might be the Spider, the city’s most fearsome assassin, but all my Ice and Stone elemental magic hasn’t done me a lick of good in learning more about “the Circle”. Despite my continued investigations, the trail’s gone as cold as the coming winter.
So when Finnegan Lane, my foster brother, gets word of a surprising inheritance, we figure why not skip town for someplace less dangerous for a few days? That place: Bullet Pointe, a fancy hotel resort complex plus Old West theme park that Finn now owns lock, stock, and barrel. At first, all the struttin’ cowboys and sassy saloon girls are just hokey fun. But add in some shady coincidences and Circle assassins lurking all around, and vacationing becomes wilder—and deadlier—than any of us expected.
Good thing this assassin brought plenty of knives to the gunfight …
Unraveled begins when Gin, Finn, Bria, and Owen all take a vacation to a theme park that Finn's mother left him. They all know that trouble could happen when they get there, they just didn't realize how quickly it would happen.
Now, Gin must doing everything she can to find some diamonds and avoid not getting dead in the "Wild West." This time Gin will be smarter than the enemy and one step ahead or die trying.
This was another great addition to this series that has us learning a lot more about Finn and Gin's mothers. They have a past that neither knew about and both of them are very curious to find out. However, they may be getting closer to the truth, but there are still several more questions that are unanswered.
I thought this book was good overall. I loved how Gin got to kind of play around in this one, and how she was very smart as well. I'm very interested to learn more about her mother and what happens, but this one sets us up for the next books and how she's going to go about taking care of the Circle.
I look forward to more in this awesome series. And I highly recommend it if you love Urban Fantasy, kick-ass heroine, and some great humor as well.
