Old habits die hard for assassins.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, 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 Mab 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 Ice and Stone magic—and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson—to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a good 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.
My buddy, Braine, of the spectacular blog Talk Supe, and I are doing a buddy read of the entire Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep. Rather than follow our normal format, we decided this time around to ask each other questions about our different takes on the book. Here is my interview with Braine! And don’t forget to visit TALK SUPE to see what fun questions Braine asked me about SPIDER’S REVENGE, book five in the Elemental Assassin series.
SHE-WOLF READS FINAL VERDICT
SPIDER’S REVENGE is by far my favorite book in the Elemental Assassin series. The tension, the emotion, the drama, the everything, had me furiously reading until the final showdown between Gin and Mab. If that showdown was put on film it would be a Western directed by John Woo. All we needed was to have a random dove fly up from somewhere to make that film vision a reality (and you John Woo fans know exactly what I mean). I think this is an end of an era for Gin and Company and I’m uber-curious to see where Estep takes us and whether the remainder of the series can live up to the utter excitement and tension these first five books produced and reveled in. This was also the first time in the series that I got truly emotional in some scenes. Yes, it was a bit dusty in the room while I read. That’s why I needed a tissue. Yup. For all you Elemental Assassin fans out there, does it only get better from here?
