I can't express how much I love this series. I just think that Gin is so awesome and that the world this story is set in is just unique and amazing. The elemental side of this series completely captivates me. Besides being so different from any other paranormal series out there, Jennifer isn't afraid to pull any punches. It's not a fairy tale story, it's dark and has it's brutal moments.
We finally get to see the showdown with Mab. I was very excited over this at first. After I started reading and the further I got, however, I was on pins and needles. I could almost feel Gin's need to look over her shoulder as the story progressed. The story was pure genius. I was anxious the whole book, right up until the very end. Gin gives us some of her snarkiness we all love to lighten the mood when necessary. Have I mentioned that Gin rocks?
Besides the Mab storyline, there are some nice threads of story that are tied up at the end that left me a big ball of melty bits. All the stuff that goes on, it might seem like a lot at first, but I love how well the story is balanced. It flows extremely well and makes it a joy to read. I really do recommend this series to everyone. I have yet to find a series quite like this one. It doesn't get much better than Gin.
