The book is available in print, audio, and e-book formats from many retailers, including the following:
And here is the book description:
How did I end up in a career where I always have blood on my hands? Well, let me tell you a story about an assassin who thought she could do no wrong. . . .
Ten years ago. A blistering hot August night. I remember like it was yesterday. The night I, Gin Blanco, truly became the Spider. Killing people is what I do best, especially now that I’ve honed my Ice and Stone magic. But back then, I had yet to learn one very important rule: arrogance will get you, every single time.
This particular job seemed simple: murder a crooked building contractor with ties to ruthless Fire elemental Mab Monroe. My mentor, Fletcher Lane, had some misgivings, but I was certain that I had the situation under control . . . right up until I exposed my weaknesses to a merciless opponent who exploited every single one of them. There’s a reason assassins aren’t supposed to feel anything. Luckily, a knife to the heart can fix that problem, especially when I’m the one wielding it. . . .
This book is a prequel origin story that takes place about 10 years before the events of Spider’s Bite, the first book in the series. So readers will get to see the assignment that truly turned Gin into an assassin in The Spider. The book also delves a little deeper into Gin’s relationship with her mentor, Fletcher Lane.
But what I think is the most fun about the book is Gin “meeting” some of the secondary characters for the first time. There are also lots of little Easter eggs and references to people and places in the books that I hope fans of the series will enjoy.
This really was a fun book for me to write, and I hope that everyone enjoys reading more about Gin’s past and her relationship with Fletcher.
Happy reading and happy holidays, everyone!
