Why This book?
I am waiting on this book because with the first line of the first book, “My name is Gin, and I kill people.”, I have been hooked. This series just gets better and better. Our protagonist is an assassin and she does kill people, lots and lots of people. They are all bad people though. ;) But Gin has the figurative heart of gold and will go to great lengths to protect and save her family and friends. Watching Gin evolve as a sister, friend and lover has been an amazing roller coaster. If you haven't checked this series out, you need to grab Spider's Bite and see for yourself.
