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...

The Elemental Assassin series can be counted on for a ton of action. The kind of action that has you sitting on the edge of your seat. The Sharpest Sting installment is no different. There are so many twists and turns that just when you think you know what is going on, BAM! Something happens that either threatens someone’s life or is a total game changer.

I loved how all of Gin’s friends and family come together to work through this dilemma. They even make surprise, “thank goodness”, appearances. Sharpest Sting took me on an amazing journey and I loved every minute of it. It was exciting and anxiety-filled all the way.

The audio is spectacular! Lauren Fortang is one of my favorite narrators. Her voice and tempo really take the suspense and excitement one step further.
