Which is stronger: blood ties or a battle-tested friendship? That's the question Gin Blanco asks when a friend's long-lost relative strolls into town. The suspicious reunion is a surprise for everyone--and a big problem for Gin. Book fourteen in the New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series RT Book Reviews calls "unbeatable entertainment!"

It's not easy being queen bee of an underworld abuzz with crooks and killers. Wielding my potent Ice and Stone elemental magic will only get me so far--my real secret is my tight-knit makeshift family, a motley crew of cops and criminals, dwarves and playboys. My foster brother Finnegan Lane is my right-hand man, but when his suddenly not-dead relative comes back into the picture, I'm the one on the outside looking in.

It's funny how life works: one minute your best friend is rock-steady, and the next he's doe-eyed and buying into this whole loving-relative routine to the point of ignoring you. I'd like to be happy for Finn, I really would. But all of my instincts are telling me that beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This person might have avoided the grave once, but I'll put anyone who hurts Finn in the ground--for good.

Gin & her Ashland family and friends have a new puzzle to solve & bad guys to kill. Fletcher who seems such an important part of this series even from the grave has left a box of clues and a letter. Finn's mother is back from the dead and nobody knows why.
This installment in the Elemental Assassin series was much better than the last book. While giving me a much needed look into the past it answered some questions as well. The love within Gins group is solid & only helps bring me back to check on them.. There's always someone for her to save and her family is there to save her.
