Excessive repeat background information.
I don't usually write review, almost never but this book frustrated me so much, I have to share my thoughts. The book is slightly shorter than the others in the series and half of it was repeat materials. I do appreciate author is trying to recap events giving readers a bit of background, from her last book(s) in the series but too much time spent explaining stuffs from before to the point of abusing the reader patience make me feel cheated. If a reader is that lost that need to be reminding of every single little detail about character and event, then he/she should move on to another series or go back to the previous books as after all, this is a book belong to a series. My other complaint is Gin, the main character was constantly talk about how tough and deadly she is pushing arrogant and when the actual fight happen, she is barely able to handle one or two supposedly just minions, bodyguard. How will she able to go up against the lethal assassin or the big boss when she's so weak? I feel as if the writer doesn't read her own work; either that or she doesn't know how to play up the character strength and weakness for us reader to make it clear that Gin is a strong, unique fighter but she is not quite in the big, bad guy league yet. An assassin with her status can't whine about how hard to take out a giant, for example. Her threats seemed empty when the fight sound too off balance, this has ruined the plot, the story and the book for me. The series has potential and I was enjoying my reads but I can say this is my last book. Patricia Briggs and Ilone Andrews are so much better at what Jennifer Estep is trying to do with her main character.
