As the current queen of the Ashland underworld, you would think that I, Gin Blanco, would know all about some secret society controlling things from behind the scenes. I might be the Spider, the city’s most fearsome assassin, but all my Ice and Stone elemental magic hasn’t done me a lick of good in learning more about “the Circle”. Despite my continued investigations, the trail’s gone as cold as the coming winter.
So when Finnegan Lane, my foster brother, gets word of a surprising inheritance, we figure why not skip town for someplace less dangerous for a few days? That place: Bullet Pointe, a fancy hotel resort complex plus Old West theme park that Finn now owns lock, stock, and barrel. At first, all the struttin’ cowboys and sassy saloon girls are just hokey fun. But add in some shady coincidences and Circle assassins lurking all around, and vacationing becomes wilder—and deadlier—than any of us expected.
Good thing this assassin brought plenty of knives to the gunfight.
Unraveled is complex on story building and character building despite being a tad repetitive on details. Gin is great, you can easily feel the building responsibility she has accumulating on her plate as she struggles to balance her personal life with her position. Gin's emotions feel a bit numb, not quite fully open but as a reader I can understand the hesitation or reservation to be fully open to all of those around her.
I get a kick out of all the social banter of our cast and I love all the fun excitement Estep brings to the table.
I do highly suggest reading the previous books in this series because Unraveled picks up directly where its previous book left off and those readers that are uninformed will not be able to follow this book very well. Unraveled is a definite win.
