Tangled Threads Review

Title: Tangled Threads
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assasin #4
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Elemental Magic, Assasins, Vampires, Giants, Dwarves.

Tangled Threads the 4th installment of the Elemental Assassin series as usual follows the some "sequential patterns" as with the previous. The books start when Gin and Finn where on a job to kill a dwarf who handling a shipment of illegal items for Mab Monroe which was later revealed to be a trap to lure "the Spider". The trap was setup by Mab's newest hire the electric elemental Elektra LaFleur.

It was later reveal that the one who spread the info about a shipment of illegal stuff was Vinny Volga an ice elemental who work as a bartender for Roslyn Phillips in Nothern Agression. It was reveal later on that Volga was coerced by LaFleur to spread the rumors about the trap or else she will kill her daughter Natasha. Volga attempted to escape but was caught by LaFleur's giants. As usual, Gin rescued Vinny from the giants and set her sights on rescuing her daughter from LaFleur (another pro Bono job for our heroine).

A twist in the story came when Jonah McAllister visited the Pork Pit along with LaFleur for a meal which in reality, LaFleur was scouting the place as she plans to kill Gin at the behest of Jonah McAllister as he still suspect Gin was the one who killed his son. It was later revealed that LaFleur plans to kill Bria Coolidge too as part of Mab Monroe's plan.

Gin gets to kill LaFleur in a showdown between two elemental on the same train yard where Natasha was held captive.

Gin finally reveals to Bria that she was her long-lost sister as well as the "Spider" who killed Elliot Slater, etc. The revelation did not initially did not bode well to Bria because of her principles as a cop.

On the romantic side of the story, Gin has finally accepted Owen Grayson as his boyfriend.  It was also reveal that Bria was also smitten with Gin's foster brother Finnegan Lane.

Overall this book is great penultimate to the series as arc as I feel that this feud will come to an end very soon.
