Why this book?:

I love the Elemental Assassin series.


This is just short of being a prequel, with the introduction and conclusion coming after book 9.

Gin tells Owen a story from her past.  One that shows all the attitude of the invincible and infallible that youth can possess.  And that shows the fall her hubris brought, and the lessons learned that helped make Gin who Gin is  The story is also a who's who of several characters seen throughout the story.  Making connections that the reader might never have seen and explaining how some characters met others.

I'm not a big fan of jumping back in time like that, even if it is a new story.  Especially because I could see where Gin was blinded LONG before she discovered the truth.  Even, apparently, before Fletcher (Gin's mentor, still alive in this past scene) saw the way of things.  But it was okay, and I was happy to see things with Owen are still going okay (in those little bits I saw of him).

I look forward to book 11, Poison Promise.
