Review: 54. Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep…

It’s time to find out what trouble finds our favorite elemental assassin Gin Blanco next… Because, you know, she never goes out looking for any! πŸ™‚

deadly stingdrey’s thoughts:

Gin Blanco is no longer an assassin in the shadows – it’s way past anonymity for her since she dispatched Mab Monroe. Not that she’s too worried about that, she can take care of herself. She only wishes Owen were still in her corner, but that’s something he needs to work through on his own…

Then Finn invites her to a “do” – one where Mab’s will is to be read and her treasures displayed. Gin reluctantly attends, and finds herself in the middle of a heist. It’s not long before she’s traipsing and tiptoeing around the building and gardens, trying to figure out what’s really going on…

Deadly Sting is ninety percent action and plot, and ten (ok, maybe twenty) percent character development, which isn’t as balanced as I normally like my books but it works and it gives us a few questions that will hopefully be answered soon. I cannot wait for the next one!

drey’s rating: Pick it up!

  1. I am a little confused by the header and WWII comments, but always like a good Jennifer Estep read! Thanks!

    1. Sorry, I forgot to remove it – the post template was a copy from another, and I’m usually pretty good about “cleaning up”! Fixed now… πŸ™‚
