I loved this book. It's set in a familiar American south, but the population is unusual. Elementals, dwarves, vampires and giants live along side humans in all segments of society. Gin is a stone elemental; she can feel the stone and draw power from it. She is also an assassin.

She's been hired to take out a man who's been embezzling from his company. When she shows up for the hit, everything goes wrong and sets in motion a series of events that leaves her on the run, her handler/foster father dead and a cop as her partner. Not her usual day.

Also working along side Gin and Detective Donovan Caine, is her foster brother Finn Lane. He works as a banker, though has received the same career training as Gin. He's a good man to 'have your back'. Complicating the case ,s Mab Monroe. She is wealthy, an elemental and has her fingers in every pie in town. Not a woman to be crossed.

I read this book over the course of two days and loved every minute. I was glad to learn that this series currently has 12 books as well as some short stories to fill in a few story gaps. Visit author Jennifer Estep's website for a complete list.

i was intrigued by one of the sandwiches that Gin makes for the boys. Peanut butter and pumpkin, sounds strange, but tempting. I just had to try it. I didn't think there was anything that could make a peanut butter sandwich taste better, but now I know, it's canned pumpkin.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sandwich

Mix equal amounts of peanut butter and canned pumpkin.
Spread on one side of one slice of bread.
Top with slices of banana.
Drizzle with honey and then dust with cinnamon.
Top with another slice of bread or eat open face.

Her main cover ID is Gin Blanco. Unknown to all, except an elite few, she is the infamous assassin-for-hire called the Spider. In her down time she works in the Pork Pit, cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, she can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel she walks upon to the Appalachian Mountains.

The Appalachian Mountains cut through most of the city. It makes for a beautiful place. But looks are deceiving, more often than not. Take Mab Monroe for example. Mab is a young, lovely woman. She is also a powerful Fire elemental. Mab runs this town. Heck, Mab OWNS Ashland. Her true nature is hidden behind fund raisers, charity donations, and winning smiles. Mab never hires assassins, like the Spider, to do her dirty work. Mab prefers to personally deal with anyone stupid enough to cross her. In fact, Mab could kill someone in front of a room filled with cops and walk away without any interference.

Gin stays out of Mab's way. The Spider is NOT stupid. She has a few morals left. Gin never kills children or animals. Gin's handler has chosen her assignments for well over a decade. He is one of the few she trusts with her life. So when an Air elemental double-crosses Gin and kills him, Gin is out for revenge. Gin will find out who is behind it all, one body at a time.

Detective Donovan Caine is probably the only cop in Ashland that is not corrupted. Donovan wants the Spider dead for personal reasons; however, he agrees to help he assassin for even more personal reasons. But once this is over all promises will be null and void. The Spider will continue her deadly trade and he will do all in his power to arrest the assassin and put her behind bars forever.

***** FIVE STARS! Wow!

This is the first in the series of several and the Gin Blanco character is awesome. Its a dash of Buffy, a dash of Kill Bill and a dash of steamy-ness all rolled into one. It starts off with a rush and leaves you wanting more of the Gin Blanco series. C'mon, a girl assassin? Hot men? Evil villans? Whats not to love?

This is the first, and last, time that I shall knowingly read a book by this author. The writing does not flow well [one is often 'hung up' on phrases that land with a 'clunk'] and the poor syntax impedes the story line.
