Sharpest Sting

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

The truth won’t set me free—but it will probably get me killed ... As Gin Blanco, aka the assassin the Spider, I’m used to having a target on my back. But ever since I started investigating the secret society known as the Circle, that target seems bigger than ever. Still, I’m trying to relax and enjoy the events leading up to my friends’ wedding when I learn that an old enemy has returned to Ashland. And that’s the just beginning of my latest nightmare. Soon, I have Circle goons watching my every move, but I have no choice but to continue searching for a key piece of evidence against the evil group. The deeper I dig, the more horrifying secrets I uncover, and the more dangerous things become for me and my friends. Just when I think I finally have a handle on things, a shocking revelation shatters my heart and leaves me with an ugly realization—that betrayal is the sharpest sting of all ...

Assessment:

Plot: This thrilling novel offers an intricate, absorbing plot that takes readers literally into an atmospheric world of assassins, vampires, and other beings. As this is the second of a series, new readers will need to catch up; while sorting through a large cast of characters and key events leading to the timeframe of this work is a challenge, it is truly worth the effort.

Prose/Style: The author is a gifted writer, demonstrating great command of language, action, dialogue and grammar. Her words and the storyline flow, making this a highly enjoyable read from start to finish.

Originality: The author has created an entirely new realm, unique and complete. She has done an admirable job crafting an original story, with distinct characters and a captivating plot line. This is an author at the top of her game.

Character Development: Estep clearly understands characterization. All players in the story, whether significant or minor, are created with finesse and distinction. Estep's protagonist--an assassin who runs a BBQ restaurant and is eagerly anticipating her friend's wedding--carries both depth and contradiction. Her rare abilities are somewhat less intriguing than her other characteristics.
