5 stars – I loved it!

It’s only been a year since this series began with Spider’s Bite and Gin is about to celebrate her 31st birthday. This book kicks off a new wave of enemies for Gin. She has to deal with another of Ashland’s crime lords,  the drug dealer Beauregard Benson, who is bringing a new drug to the streets.

This was an action packed and dangerous mission for Gin. She has to deal with a mad scientist who is also a different kind of vampire. Beauregard ended up being a real challenge for Gin but I loved how she took him down because it really showed the world how dangerous she could be. Also I love that she uses an Aston Martin at one point as a battering ram because that is sad for such a beautiful car but also a hell of a way to take someone out. 

We also have a step back with Gin and Bria’s relationship in this one. Bria is determined to deal with things through the law but refuses to listen to anyone else’s opinions about it. This causes some real tension with her relationship with Gin and with Xavier. She also almost gets herself and others killed in her fight for vengeance. There is some resolution at the end of this book between them but I really hope she gets over this because her self-righteousness is starting to get annoying. 

This book was just nonstop action and I loved every minute of it. Eleven books in and I am still surprised by this wonderful world that Estep has created. Also I love that Gin seems to be expanding her circle of friends, especially now that she has gone public. I am really looking forward to seeing who they all work together to bring down their enemies.
