15th book in the Elemental Assassin series. Finn still has questions about what happened with his mother so when he suddenly finds himself inheriting her Wild West theme park and hotel, he's suspicious but it seems like too good an opportunity to pass up to possibly get some answers about her. Gin is extremely suspicious but since she has hit nothing but dead ends in her search for information on The Circle, she agrees to go along. Of course that means that Bria and Owen come along as well. It doesn't take long before the real game has been sussed out by Gin and her friends and the deadly stakes are known. Now Bria, Finn, and Owen have been drugged and kidnapped and Gin has just barely escaped with the help of an unexpected ally. She will need friends and allies if she wants to save them and live to fight another day.
A fun, quick read. The basic plot was pretty standard for the series and not much headway was made on the overarching Circle plot but there was a bit of expose of Gin's mother's past and much less of her usual repetitive drivel so that made for an overall better reading experience.
