Izabel and Naeva find themselves right where they wanted to be in Mexico: captured and held in the slave compounds owned by the Ruiz family. But the two are soon separated and forced into very different—but equally dangerous—situations. Izabel spends the next three weeks playing a role she never expected she would get the opportunity to play. But her luck runs out when Naeva’s life hangs in the balance, and only Izabel can save her.

But at a terrible cost.

If Izabel chooses to help Naeva, it will expose a lie she has been carrying on her shoulders since she met Victor Faust. A lie that will not only potentially make everyone in Victor’s Order distrust her going forward, but one that will also blow her carefully constructed cover In Mexico, and get her killed.

Fredrik, still looking for his serial killer, does not have to look long—the killer finds him. And Niklas’ past catches up to him when an old enemy comes back for revenge.

But it will be Victor’s actions that shake up those left in his Order, and ultimately, be its downfall.

This series is definitely a favorite of mine, I drop everything and read the newest addition when it is released. ‘Spiders in the Grove’ was no exception. Each book in the series typically focuses on one or two main characters, while the other characters are involved in a side scene, similar to that of a movie or tv serial. The writing is stellar and her characters are thoroughly developed.

Redmerski’s anti-heroes are twisted, psychotic and take no prisoners (unless it is to torture them). The only thing that seems to have the power to bring them down, is love. Her heroines are feisty, strong and independent. No matter what jam they find themselves in, they will figure a way out of it and be stronger because of it! If they let a man in their life it is as their companion, never will a man control or manipulate them.

I hate to say that SPIG did not fare well in comparison to the first six in the series. I found myself skimming some parts and found the characters didn’t have the same “feel” as they did in the first six books. Some of their thoughts and internal dialogue made them appear weak, and weak is something these characters are not. I expected more and perhaps I set myself up for disappointment. Regardless, I cannot wait to read the next book!
