I’m secretly a huge fan of assassin plotlines.
Yeah, I’m one of those authors who will have a hard time explaining their search history if the police come knocking. But I’m not just looking up fast-acting poisons, I’m also looking up the exact specifications of your regular marble. Standard research.
So, this book really caught my eye because of the assassin protagonist but she’s also an elemental. Haven’t read anything like this before!
This one came out literally yesterday and it’s already pretty high on the charts. Take a look.
Title: Sharpest Sting
Author: Jennifer Estep
Genre: Urban fantasy
Release date: 8th October 2019
“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…”
Where can I get it?
On Amazon right now it has e-book and paperback formats which is actually quite unusual considering it’s only a day old. Having said that, the prices are a bit on the high side and although I’m dying to read it, personally, I’ll be waiting a little while to see if the price goes down. But considering how well it’s doing in the charts, it might not happen any time soon.
Thanks for reading!
