The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Elemental Assassin series—“an extraordinary series… One of the most intriguing heroines in the genre” (Romantic Times Book Reviews).
Keep your friends close but your enemies within stabbing distance.
One important lesson I’ve learned in the assassination business is that to be the best you have to roll with the punches. Now that I’m queen of Ashland’s underworld—by default, not by choice—a lot more punches are being thrown my way. But I suppose that’s the price of victory for taking down some of the underworld’s top dogs. Good thing I have my Ice and Stone magic to help me survive my volatile new position. Just when I think things are finally settling down, someone tries to murder me during a hush-hush underworld meeting. But the real surprise is how strangely familiar my shadowy assailant seems to be.
My job is to maintain order among killers, crooks, and thieves, and soon I’m embroiled in a bloody game where the ability to keep secrets could be the greatest superpower of all. My enemies have all sharpened their knives and laid their traps, waiting for me to fall. But this Spider weaves her own webs of death…

Quick thoughts

Gin is definitely still a bad ass.  That doesn’t change with her new title.  She’s definitely had to up her game since everyone now wants to kill her for her spot in the underworld.

You definitely have to keep an eye on your enemies, even when you don’t think they pose much of a threat.

This one didn’t focus much on the romance, and that’s completely okay with me.  There were so many other things going on that I didn’t even miss it.

Past events can still haunt you today.  Gin knows that better than anyone.

And holy shit that ending!  I NEED the next book now!!!!
