New York Times bestseller Jennifer Estep continues her Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series with a novella starring Silvio Sanchez, the vampire assistant of Gin Blanco, as he goes on a holiday date that turns out to be more deadly than romantic.
Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.
All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.
Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies...
I was so excited when I found out that we were getting Silvio’s story, and it didn’t disappoint. I loved every second of this book, and read it pretty quickly.
It’s a novella, so it’s not very long and can be read in one sitting. We always think of Silvio as Gin’s bookish assistant. But this book shows that he can pack a punch if he needs to. I also loved that we were seeing a possible love connection for Silvio. All he does is keep Gin’s life in order, and I was happy to see him make a little time for himself.
I can’t say too much more because of those pesky spoilers, but this novella is a great addition to the Elemental Assassin series. There’s sweet moments and action. Some of my favorite things when it comes to these books. I can’t wait for the next book!
