What I liked best about Deadly Sting was that it takes place over the course of one night! I love books like this! Instead of being approached by someone for a job, and taking time to plan, Gin is forced to think on her feet and execute all of her kills in the moment. This definitely breaks the formula that the previous books had been following, which was nice. It was one action packed and bloody night at the museum!
I really liked that there's next to no repetition this time! We're stuck in the moment with Gin as she sneaks through halls and gardens. There's not much distraction from that. Of course, she does have to mention how Mab murdered her family for the billionth time, but she was at an exhibit for the woman's collection, so I'll let that slide. Deadly Sting also has a nice surprise at the end. Gin is finally able to get her revenge on someone else, and it's not what I was expecting from her at all. It was quite genius.
I think Deadly Sting may be my favorite of the series, even though it's not like the other books. It was fun and exciting, and a very quick read. I could not put it down! The extremely short timeline worked really well, since it didn't allow Gin to make her usual dumb mistakes, or have someone else make a dumb decision that interferes with her work.
