Retired assassin Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, has just conquered her nemesis Mab Monroe and now every wannabe thug and troublemaker out to take Mab’s place is gunning for Gin. Tired of having to hurt and sometimes even kill these aspiring bad guys Gin gives in to the idea of a vacation with her sister Bria to the small beach town of Blue Marsh where Bria grew up.
Thinking she was in for a relaxing weekend with Owen meeting her the next day, Gin is disappointed when she finds her sister’s best friend being threatened by a powerful vampire who controls most of the town. Feeling pretty invincible from defeating Mab Gin just might be in more trouble than she thinks by underestimating the vamp.
I know, I know, you’re probably tired of hearing me gush about what an awesome series this is but I just can’t help it. I love me some Spider!! By a Thead is the 6th book in the Elemental Assassins series and the books just keep sucking me in further with each new one. They are full of gritty action, hot romance and memorable characters. Jennifer Estep is a genius. Who else can get you to love an assassin? This series is a must read if you love urban fantasies.
