This prequel tale follows Gin Blanco's transformation into the deadly assassin known as the Spider after she learns how to use her elemental Stone and Ice powers alongside old-fashioned human street smarts to become a lethal adversary. Original.

Simon and Schuster
For the first time, the full origin story of Gin Blanco's transformation into the fearsome assassin known as the Spider—book ten in the red-hot Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series.

How did I end up in a career where I always have blood on my hands? Well, let me tell you a story about an assassin who thought she could do no wrong. . . .

Ten years ago. A blistering hot August night. I remember like it was yesterday. The night I, Gin Blanco, truly became the Spider. Killing people is what I do best, especially now that I’ve honed my Ice and Stone magic. But back then, I had yet to learn one very important rule: arrogance will get you, every single time.

This particular job seemed simple: murder a crooked building contractor with ties to ruthless Fire elemental Mab Monroe. My mentor, Fletcher Lane, had some misgivings, but I was certain that I had the situation under control . . . right up until I exposed my weaknesses to a merciless opponent who exploited every single one of them. There’s a reason assassins aren’t supposed to feel anything. Luckily, a knife to the heart can fix that problem, especially when I’m the one wielding it. . . .

I found it interesting to learn the back story, which is referred to many times in the other books in this series. We learn that there are even more connections between the main characters than we knew. I also like the fact that Fletcher is alive in this one and we get more of a feel for his character and how he shaped Gin and Finn into the people they are........

I didn't like this story as much as some of her others. I hope she doesn't do too many retrospectives very often.
