Gin is a elemental assassin and head of the underworld, so
keeps quite a busy schedule. When her foster brother Finn's
mother, who supposedly died thirty years ago, shows up, she
knows something is not right. Finn is drawn in by his
mother's charm and stories, while Gin fakes the kindness
tries to find out the truth. There are not many people in
world she cares about, but Finn is one, and she will do
anything to protect him.
If only life could be as easy as killing everyone who
her, Gin would have a lot less problems. But instead she
juggle family problems along with the issues that come with
running the underworld and having people always looking
way to overthrow you.
Things heat up as the perceived threat becomes real and Gin
along with her sister and boyfriend Owen must save not only
themselves but Finn.
I really enjoy this tight group of family and friends who
use their skill, strength and smarts to keep themselves and
those around them alive. Jennifer Estep has delivered
great book in the Elemental Assassin series that you
want to put down. BITTER BITE includes enough information
if you haven't read all the others in this series you will
still be able to
follow the story and enjoy the book.

Itís not easy being queen bee of an underworld abuzz with
crooks and killers. Wielding my potent Ice and Stone
elemental magic will only get me so farómy real secret is
my tight-knit makeshift family, a motley crew of cops and
criminals, dwarves and playboys. My foster brother
Finnegan Lane is my right-hand man, but when his suddenly
not-dead relative comes back into the picture, Iím the
one on the outside looking in.
Itís funny how life works: one minute your best friend is
rock-steady, and the next heís doe-eyed and buying into
this whole loving-relative routine to the point of
ignoring you. Iíd like to be happy for Finn, I really
would. But all of my instincts are telling me that
beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned
charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The
whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This
person might have avoided the grave once, but Iíll put
anyone who hurts Finn in the groundófor good.
