About the Book: Old habits die hard. And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through.
Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen.
Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters she hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second.
Good thing I’ve got my powerful Stone and Ice magic — and my irresistible lover Owen Grayson — to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me…no matter what I have to do to make that happen.

First Thought when Finished:What an emotionally fulfilling entry into the series. The last few chapters were beyond my highest expectations.
“One by one, the others all nodded their heads again, as if we were talking about having a spring picnic instead of going up against the deadliest woman in Ashland and all of her men.”― Jennifer Estep, Spider’s Revenge
Story Talk: It was time for the big showdown between Gin and Mab! Spider’s Revenge did not disappoint in how it all came to head. The whole book was leading to a pivotal fight scene that just had to happen. I was emotionally drained once the story was done but that was totally in a good way. Spider’s Revenge was also full of Jennifer Estep’s signature humor, fantastic characterizations, and quick-tempo storytelling. If you are a fan of the series this story won’t let you down!
“I will destroy you. No matter how long it takes, no matter what it costs me. I won’t sleep, I won’t eat. I won’t do anything but plot your downfall. I will mow down your men like they’re weeds. I’ll kill so many of them so viciously, so brutally, so horribly that no one will dare to work for you. And sooner or later, I’ll get you too.”― Jennifer Estep, Spider’s Revenge
Character Talk: I love the characters in this series. Everyone: Gin, Owen, Finn, Bria, JoJo, Sophia, and thoughts of Fletcher were each done fantastically in Spider’s Revenge. I could wax on forever about these folks but instead I will say that if you haven’t, you should check out this series so you can experience them all on your own!

I love these books in audio format. Lauren does a fantastic job with pacing, emotion, and accents. I love her way of doing Gin. I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing her voice. I will continue this series in audiobook as long as Lauren is doing the books!
“I’m the Spider, bitch—I’m the best there is.”― Jennifer Estep, Spider’s Revenge
Final Thought: Spider’s Revenge is right now my favorite in the series!
