My Favorite Series in 2011

When I was preparing yesterday's post I realized that I would have to create this post otherwise one series would have dominated my Top Reads in 2011 so I'm highlighting that series here today.

This year I read Tangled Threads (review) and Spider's Revenge and am currently reading an ARC of By a Thread. Spider's Bite (review), Web of Lies (review) and Venom were all read in 2010.

I'm telling you guys this series is AWESOME!! If you love urban fantasy these books are for you. I fell in love with Estep's Big Time series which are hokey romance books about superheros but this series is way different. It's really dak and sometimes gory but it's suprisingly well done. Our heroine, Gin Blanco, is a retired assassin but that doesn't mean she doesn't kill anymore. You have to trust me on this one and READ THIS SERIES!! I cannot get enough and promise that if you love urban fantasy you will too.
