Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep

Elemental Assassin Book One

Gin Blanco is a cold hearted stone blooded killer. She’s an assassin who kills the dregs of society for money. When one of her clients double crosses her and murdered her handler, Gin takes on the job of finding out who is responsible for taking the only family she has left.

Estep took an interesting concept and made it come to life for me. Gin is a character similar to Dexter where you shouldn’t care about her or what she is going through, but you do. She’s the killer with a heart of gold who will do anything to protect those she loves. She holds within her a deep responsibility to those whom she considers family.

Urban Fantasy is a new genre for me as a reader, when this sub-genre first emerged I had a difficult time finding a quality in the story that I appreciated. However I have learned to appreciate the world building required in this genre. Estep created an unique world, and characters to populate it.

I look forward to seeing where Estep takes me in WEB OF LIES, and how the story will continue to grow.
