It’s assassin vs. assassin in the fourth chapter of Estep’s outstanding Elemental Assassin series. Gin Blanco is one the most intriguing heroines on the scene today. As the action heats up, Estep thoughtfully reveals additional aspects of Gin’s character, showcasing her evolution. If you have not gotten on the Gin bandwagon yet, do so today!
After the most recent defeats she has suffered at the hands of the Spider, it is not surprising when mob boss/Fire Elemental Mab Monroe brings in the big guns. As Gin and her foster brother Finn surveil a planned hit, they spy deadly electrical elemental assassin Elektra LaFleur. After learning that LaFleur has kidnapped a child and is planning on assassinating Gin’s still unacknowledged baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, Gin goes on the warpath.
