I received this ebook from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


The tenth book in the bestselling and “outstanding” (Romantic Times) Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series finally reveals for the first time the origins of Gin Blanco’s career as the deadliest of assassins.

For the first time, the origins of Gin Blanco’s career as the deadly assassin “the Spider” are revealed in full. In a story that pre-dates the other nine books in the series, Gin Blanco goes through her paces to become the most feared assassin in the Ashland.



This is currently one of my favorite series and every time I finish a book it’s the saddest moments because I remember the waiting for the next one is going to be real long. Usually I get an ARc and let me tell you it’s an emotional moment and I love to share the news. Jennifer Estep is my Idol at the moment and her two series are my addictions. I don’t even want to think about saying goodbye to Gin and Gwen.

So I had my doubts about this particular story because it’s set in the past, precisely ten years and Gin is starting to create a name for herself as an assassin. Don’t get me wrong seeing Gin in action is always perfect, but I was thinking about those sidekicks of her that I love, like Bria and Owen. I think is clear for everyone my love for this big family, but now imagine my surprise when I get to see them playing a part in this story? I was so happy to see Xavier again and Owen.

I loved seeing a different Gin, she’s a little insecure, but clearly is still learning her way in this dangerous assassin world. Fletcher was another great surprise in this book, the story for me was made for Gin and her big heart, because the moment she discovered a girl was in harm’s way everything changed. I loved seeing her falling in love, because we can see she’s just human and make mistakes like everyone.

    I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve almost started reading the first book. Now there are 10?! Wow. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I should get my butt in gear and start the series.
