ARC Review for The Spider by Jennifer Estep 2014

Ten years ago. A blistering hot August night. I remember like it was yesterday. The night I, Gin Blanco, truly became the Spider. Killing people is what I do best, especially now that I’ve honed my Ice and Stone magic. But back then, I had yet to learn one very important rule: arrogance will get you, every single time.
This particular job seemed simple: murder a crooked building contractor with ties to ruthless Fire elemental Mab Monroe. My mentor, Fletcher Lane, had some misgivings, but I was certain that I had the situation under control . . . right up until I exposed my weaknesses to a merciless opponent who exploited every single one of them. There’s a reason assassins aren’t supposed to feel anything. Luckily, a knife to the heart can fix that problem, especially when I’m the one wielding it. . . . 


*****************************************

Another great book in the "Elemental Assassin Series"  Jennifer Estep once again shows us what an amazing writer she is.  

Gin is such a great character.  She's tough as nails, smart and always has great comebacks.  I like her smart alack comments and witty repartee with whomever she's talking to.

This book actually gives us a look at the younger Gin, it tells the story of how and why she is tougher then ever before.  In her past she was given the job of killing a man but the job wasn't quite what it seemed and it's the anniversary of that assassination.  This read truly gives you a true view of the character that is Gin.

I highly recommend you read Jennifer Estep's newest book in the series.  She continues to get better and better.

5 STARS!!!!
