Gin, an assassin going by the name the Spider, has been betrayed. Her handler has been brutally murdered and everyone from police to gangsters is out to get her. She turns to the one honest cop in the city of Ashland to help her hunt down those who are hunting her.Jennifer Estep has written a dystopian novel filled with vampires, dwarves, giants and magic users. I didn't much like this book. There is a hardness and a cruelty to most of the characters that made the book a bit of a grind. Summing up, it's not my thing but it's a good idea and well executed, therefore 4 stars.
