What I liked.
In every book there is at least something I like and for this one it was the swap up of the normal Gin against some insert criminal mastermind here to Gin and the search for a serial killer. It was a good swap up but I totally knew who the serial killer was before mid book and where he was keeping his next victim.
The coroner Ryan is a new favorite character and I like that he seems to be in a very strange Spider Fan Club of sorts. Gin’s entire team are all really good characters. I’d like a little more development on a few of them in particular but maybe that is coming.
Concerns and Little Nagging Things in the Back of my Head.
Well I have a few for this series. One being that I guessed a lot of the plot. But more than that I wonder how many more books JE is planning on cranking out before wrapping it up. I mean am I committed to 20, 25 more than that. I’d really like some sort of end date in mind. How long is it going to take to find the leader of this elusive circle???
My biggest pet peeve with this series is that it seems Gin remembers or flashes back to some super important detail from her past that is the big clue in the present often. I’m usually okay with this a few times in a series but this happens in almost every Gin book. Either she flashes to the past and sees something important or Fletcher has remarkably left some clue she finds even though he died in book 1. I’m a little put out by this one specifically because it revolved again around the night that Gin’s family died. We’ve seen this particular one a few times and every time some new thing happens in that recollection to fit into the current book. It just feels so convenient.
I’d like some movement on the relationship front with Owen and Gin. I mean they are together but I think their relationship has stalled. Owen has turned into some flat paper cut out version of a prefect boyfriend. He shows up to help in everything she is doing, he never has his own thing going on, he supports and agrees with everything she does. They don’t argue or even banter. I mean just a discussion about living together or hey maybe we should both get tested so that we don’t have to use condoms and the pill with sex anymore. Something??? Anything??? Nope it is all perfect in Gin Owen land all of the time now.
I liked the plot line change up but I could do with less flash backs to reveal new information and more assassinating and present day sleuthing to find the bad guys. It isn't a bad book but it also didn't really make me like the series more either.
This book was a bit harder to review because it got stuck a time or two and I felt she was cursed with temporary stupidity to get the plot moved along. Thing is though, the story was addicting and kept me glued to the pages, I would hit one of these "She ain't that stupid" moments and then just move on with the story but it was distracting.
We have started searching out The Circle in earnest and she has at least one of them in her sights but things get complicated and Tucker seems to be a real enigma and I hope he does not get so evil we can't like him just a bit.
Bottom line: Great story, good plot, some stumbles in keeping Gin consistent, really good ending and we get to know a bit more about the night her family died. Hang on folks, this ride is not over.
One of Ashland’s mob bosses calls in the favour that Gin owes her, and things quickly spiral out of control as they go from sketchy to disastrous. The clues keep piling up, but even with Blanco’s entire crew on deck, it took some doing to get to the heart of it all, and the hunter winds up the hunted. I guessed the antagonist pretty easily however, there were so many other unknowns to keep me busy that it didn’t matter.
One of the things that I enjoy the most about these novels is how the author keeps making links to the past while still developing new tangents. Hugh’s been around for several volumes now, but we learn that he and Gin have met before. Estep also takes us back to that awful day when Blanco lost everything, and we discover an interesting morsel about her mom that has the potential to be a game changer.
All the characters get their turn under the guillotine, and this time around it was the Spider’s number that got called. Yes, she finds herself in more life-or-death situations that all the secondaries combined however, in this particular instance the outlook was worse than usual. After a bit of clever maneuvering with her ice & stone magic as well as her knives, we have the name of the Circle’s leader… or do we?
SNARED was as good as book #16’s get!
