In Web of Lies, our retired assassin Gin Blanco decides to take on another assignment, completely free of pay. You see, Gin was just working at her restaurant one day when all of a sudden it gets shot at. She of course thinks that it was meant for her, Gin being the Spider, and all. But whoever shot up her restaurant wasn't aiming at Gin, they were actually aiming at one of her customers, Violet Fox. It turns out that this guy--a bully, really--wants the land that Violet's grandfather owns to expand his mining business. And he wants it bad. Gin helps Violet and her grandfather take out this a-hole with a little help of the goody-goody known as Detective Donovan Cain.
Web of Lies was a great sequel! The writing is amazing, the whole world is amazing with wonderful characters (except for maybe the detective... he still annoys me)… I am definitely falling in love with this series!
But one thing I noticed that there is quite a lot of repetition in the book. It's something I didn't notice when I read the Mythos Academy series, though apparently it was there. I wasn't exactly annoyed by it, but I did end up skimming those paragraphs. Besides that, though, it was just super exciting with a lot of action! Gin is just so badass with her awesome powers--I love her! Speaking of her powers... that thing at the end in the mine... so awesome!
Anyway, I am really loving this series! Especially with that little plot twist there at the end with Donovan Cain. If you've read this it might sound mean, but you know how I feel about him. Gin can totally do better! I can't wait to read more of this series!
