**I try to make my reviews spoiler free but in some cases it is not possible. My review below does contain spoilers if you have not read Spider's Revenge.**

I couldn't believe the bitch was dead. 

Mab is dead and Estep gives a glimpse into what happens when the assassin pays her respects to the Fire elemental. It is anything less than a blow out. Between every crime boss circling the cemetery to her own sworn enemies sitting graveside, you know things are not going to go smoothly. 

What I loved about Estep's novella is that you get a glimpse into what direction the next installment of the Elemental Assassin series, By a Thread, is going to go. Gin, aka the Spider, still has enemies gunning for her. Philip Kincaid, who we discover has a past with Owen, and Jonah McAllister, who is without a job now that his boss is dead. We see both Philip's and Jonah's point of view. Loved this brief teaser and it has me licking my lips to open By a Thread!

Thank goodness this little short will be on my Kindle by tuesday! I finished Spider's Revenge and though oh boy now I get to read Thread of Death forgetting there were two more weeks to go for it to release. :(
But soon we also have next full length book and like you cannot wait to get my eyes on By A Thread!
