Snared by Jennifer Estep
Length: 10 hrs and 30 mins
Date Read: April 2017
The sixteenth book in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls, “An extraordinary series…[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre.”
If you don’t know Gin “the Spider” Blanco, you don’t know dangerous female heroines.
Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web…
Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.
My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.
A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I’m used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy—one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.

Quick Thoughts: I am becoming a huge fan of Jade (I bet you thought I would start with the standard Gin crew). She is such a complex character and this story really brought her to the forefront. Gin was on her A-Game this book including driving Silvio crazy! I liked how this moved forward the Circle storyline while also having a strong stand-alone case. This one made me tear up a bit (all for good reasons) and after so many books I am really glad this series is still going strong!
Narrated By Lauren Fortgang / Length: 10 hrs and 30 mins
I don’t think there is a single thing I haven’t said about Lauren’s narration of this series. She is a perfect match for these characters. This time I will add: I waited for this to come out on audio even though I had the book early. I think that probably speaks volumes about how much I love this series on Audio!
There wasn’t a sample of this book so here is another from the series.
