In Tangled Threads, we learn more about that infamous night which set the wheels of Gin’s life in motion. And we learn the deep, dark secret harbored by her foster father, mentor and friend, Fletcher Lane.
Gin Blanco, a/k/a the Spider, has taken her personal vendetta against Mab Monroe to new heights. She’s chipping away at the mob boss’ power structure and trying to force her out in the open so that she could kill her once and for all for the murder of her family. Unfortunately, Mab is also stepping up the game by hiring renowned assassin called LaFleur. Gin is kept busy keeping her read identity secret, dodging the hired gun and at the same time, trying to find a way to reveal her relationship to Detective Bria Snow, the younger sister she’d long thought dead.
In a world where Elemental magic (i.e., those able to manipulate stone, fire, air and water), Gin is a rarity in that she is able to wield two elements … stone and ice. Will that be enough against the powerful fire elemental who destroyed her family so many years ago?
I’ve read all of Jennifer’s previous Elemental books and found this one to be the best yet. Don’t get me wrong … they’re all excellent, but with Tangled Threads, Jennifer has upped the ante and spun a great tale — pun intended.
