About the Book: I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.

Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town.

Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back in town, she thinks he’s hers for the taking.

Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.

First thought when finished: Gin has grown by amazing leaps and bounds emotionally since the beginning of the series. This story really shows her emotional highs and lows while ripping your heart out!

Story Talk:

“Always take the most unexpected route” ― Jennifer Estep, Widow’s Web

The one thing the Elemental Assassin series has taught us is that Gin does not always do what we expect. That has especially been true the last few books. I can’t get into much detail here about all the ways that Gin surprised me in this book but I do believe that each time she thought not only as an assassin but as a friend, lover, and family member. There were so many ups and downs this time that I was emotionally drained by the end. Jennifer Estep outdid herself this time! There was nothing left on the floor and we are made to wonder what is yet to come!

Character Talk:

“I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.”― Jennifer Estep, Widow’s Web

Characters are where Jennifer Estep shines even when she is managing to make us not adore a previously lovable character. I want to talk about the new character added to the brood though: Phillip Kincaid. I can’t wait to see how he plays out in the series. I kind of like Gin having a disreputable friend. It is about time she had a friend/liaison/pain in her ass from the underworld that wasn’t trying to kill her. I think I am really going to love him!

Audio Talk:

Narrated by Lauren Fortgang at a length of 10 hrs and 36 mins

Lauren knocked it out of the park. I think this audio was done perfectly from all angles: pacing, narration, production, and emotion. I love this series in audio!

Final Thought:

“I eat haughty, arrogant, manipulative, self-important bitches like you for breakfast, sugar. And then I go back for seconds.” ― Jennifer Estep, Widow’s Web

I hope that Gin continues to eat them for breakfast and go back for more.

    Ok. Just finished #2. I’m ready to dive into #3 but need a break from my back-lit Kindle. So very pumped that #7 in the series is getting a 5 rating!!! I love Gin’s confidence.

    Great review Felicia! I am disappointed in Owen, how he can be so blind when proven that she is just evil. And I think it is high time Jonah McAllister gets killed in a very painful and gruesome way.

    YEAH!!! This was my favorite of the series thus far I think! I loved that we got a peek at Owen’s past – and oh man, what a peek it was. I wanted to do violent things to Salina. Violent. Things. I too loved the addition of Phillip, and I cannot wait to see where things go with him. And a certain someone:) I wouldn’t mind a whole spinoff book with them!

    Gin is feisty and funny (mostly without meaning to be) and, you’re right, she’s grown *so* much from the first book! I love how Estep keeps Gin moving forward and changing the story up on her.
