In this third book of the series we learn more a out Gin and her background, and she makes some new friends. The action is fast paced, yet Gin has some important personal decisions to make.
I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but young adult and mysteries are also favorites.
I like where things are going. Definitely my kind of book with a great, sarcastic heroine.
gets better and better with each book. love the characters and the storyline. easy to follow while listening and doing other things and moves pretty quickly.
Interesting story, I like strong female leads...however, from reviewing the info on Audible, I cannot figure where this book fits in the series...it was difficult to follow some of the plot because I did not have the background info I wanted ...
I really like the people in these books. At least the "good guys".
I love these stories, but I find the amount of recap of previous books annoying. I think book 3 would have been a third shorter without all the repetition.
If you like a lot of introspection, constantly being reminded what color eyes are or what knives or weapons are made of, then you might like this book. The action was okay but all the repetition kind of ruined it for me, also constantly being reminded how good she is.
At least Owen made a nice addition and Finn is starting to come into his own.

Gin Blanco, a retired assassin named the Spider, returns in book three of the Elemental Assassin series. This time around, she's dealing with the consequences of her actions in book two. With a giant obsessing after a mutual friend, Gin is going to have to give it everything she has in order to save her friend and not expose herself all while somehow living to tell the tale. Add in that Gin's little sister that she thought died when she was a child somehow pops back into her life and this story just got that much more twisted.
The love interest, Owen Grayson had me pushing aside my intrigue/anger of Donovan Caine and rooting for Owen. I have mixed feelings for Donovan at this point, and I'm hoping he stays out of the picture. I'm almost certain JEstep is going to bring him back later on just to f*** with us though so we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Owen seems like Gin could rely on him for support as well as comfort and I can't wait to see where there relationship goes in the future books.
Jennifer Estep manages to weave such an intricate story that you're not sure where it's going to go, you just know you want to get caught in her web. The Elemental Assassin series is everything I could ask for in an Urban Fantasy series. I highly recommend it if you haven't read it yet! I'm already listening to the fourth book (audiobook) in the series.
Loved it! This is probably my third time listening to this series. However, it's been awhile, so I feel like I'm experiencing it again for the first time. I love the her view of the paranormal!
