It's been said before, and like Ms. Estep, I guess it needs to be said again, the concept is fun,and has a lot of potential, but the story lines are thin. The repetition of back ground material and what has gone before ruined this series for me. Just read the last one and you will know all that has gone before. drat.
I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.
This book is among the top 10% the narration and tempo were great.
The moment when Gin finds out that her baby sister is a detective on the Ashland police force and how this will change her life. Then at the end of the book he has to forget that her sister will start hunting her when she takes claim to a killing of a minion of the Fire elemental who not only scared her hands but killed her family. But revenge is more important at the time than trying to mend fences with her sister especially since her sister doesn't know Gin is her sister or that she is the Spider.
I have listen to the first two books of this series and continue to listen to this series not only because of the storyline but because Lauren's narration is naturally flowing that the story just comes alive and the characters become interesting and worth the time to invest interest in.
Can she find love, revenge, and family or is Gin going to have to kill to get one or all.
If you enjoy Urban Fantasy you will enjoy this series this some adventure, some romance, and definitely some killing.
I have always been a reader, until my 3-hr a day round trip commute. Now, I am a listener - and I am hooked on audio books!
Overall I like these books, but my goodness! She goes on and on and on about how much planning she did and how smart she was and how successful as an assassin, yet makes so many mistakes, or overlooks simple things. It gets kind of annoying, but if you can get past that, it is a pretty good story!
I've made it through 3 of these books now and, for me, they are getting better with each book. I'm happy to hear in this book much less of the erotica that has been in the other two, erotica that was a little blatently crass, in my opinion. I'm hoping future books continue to focus on the evolving storyline, shaping the characters, and furthering the relationships between all the characters.
This is Jennifer Estep's third book in her Elemental Assassin Series. Pretty good book. Some nice twists here and there that keep it interesting. II really like the southern accent the narrator uses and since this takes place in Ashland it makes sense. The characters are well fleshed out and likeable. She's got some literary quirks like using characters full names a lot and it bugs me but not enough to keep me from reading the rest of the series.
Each book so far in this series has been wonderful. A pleasure to listen to and one of my favorite series. I hope they keep comming
Love this series. Jennifer Estep knows how to keep you hooked. I couldn't put down my iPod. The story gets better with each book. I like the way new characters are introduced and kept in the stories. The narrator is fantastic! I highly recommend this series!
This book is the best of the series. The writing and characters have a new depth. Lauren Fortgang, the reader, continues to be perfect for this series. I'm looking forward to the next book!
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
