The hotly anticipated ninth novel in the hugely popular Elemental Assassin series finds Gin Blanco on a dangerous mission to rescue a friend.
When I say you’re a dead man, take that literally.
To me, killing people is like a day at the salon: cut and dry. Well, more like rinse and repeat when you moonlight as the assassin the Spider. But my last spa day ended redder than my freshly painted nails after a twisted Fire elemental and his goons kidnapped my close friend Sophia Deveraux and nearly killed her sister Jo-Jo in the process.
Up Ashland’s most dangerous mountains, and deep into the heart of its blackest woods—I’ll track these thugs no matter where they take Sophia. It doesn’t matter what kinds of elemental magic they try to throw at me, my Ice and Stone powers can take the heat and then some. I will get Sophia back, over their dead bodies.
Because anybody that hurts Gin Blanco’s family becomes a body.
Heart of venom
I've been a fan of the spider from day one! I absolutely love how each book is focused on one event without being drawn out and tedious. Even though Gin is an admittedly cold hearted assassin she knows no limits to the love she feels for her family or the sacrifices she will make to keep them safe. Each book draws me deeper and deeper into the life and mind of Gin Blanco and the Spider. I cannot wait to indulge in her next adventure.
Awesome as Ever!
Estep has to be one of the most underrated writers of today. She creates stories and writes them well. This is my favorite genre, my " home away from home" place that I can get away and enjoy myself through the eyes of different characters and various story lines. If I want serious, I'll read suspense/mystery/nonfiction. However, Estep's character The Spider has my attention and, in my very humble opinion, nails it every time she writes about her!
Fast paced and quick read
If you like the gin blanco books you will like it. Though, I am tired of the series, it was a quick read.
