The hotly anticipated ninth novel in the hugely popular Elemental Assassin series finds Gin Blanco on a dangerous mission to rescue a friend.

When a terror from the past threatens Gin’s friend and body-disposer, Sophia, Gin will stop at nothing to protect her, even if it means walking straight into a killer’s trap. Meanwhile, the rocky romance between Gin and Owen reaches a turning point—can they reunite and rekindle their love? Or will the things Gin has been forced to do in her line of work as the deadly assassin the Spider keep them apart forever? Assuming, that is, she survives long enough to find out…

Review

The past couple of books have been enjoyable but not my favorites. Heart of Venom got me back on the “I freaking love this series” train of thought. There is so much that happens in this book.

  • Gin learns exactly what happened to Sophie when she was younger
  • Gin goes in guns blazing to protect Sophia
  • Gin has reservations regarding Owen
  • Owen isn’t as big of an asshat as he’s been in the last couple of books
  • The loyalty her friends and family shows her is amazing
