I've given this five stars for several reasons.
One: A reunion between Gin and Owen! (I'm so happy!!!)
Two: Sophia's backstory with the Grimes siblings played a huge part of this and it was nice to know--but not necessarily nice reading--how she came to be how she is.
Three: ...Two's enough, right?
Anyway. I'm so glad that Gin is the way she is, that everyone she classes as family--whether related or not--are treated rightly and if not, she will go out and get them justice.
As for book 10, I may put it off for a few books as from what I've read it delves into Gin's history and how she became The Spider. I'll come back to it at some point though :)
