Publisher's Summary

"Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I'm Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I'm retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day, when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren't aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox.

"Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, Im beginning to wonder if Im really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I'm a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn't made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man...dead or alive."

What the Critics Say

“The second chapter of the first-person ‘Elemental Assassin’ series is just as hard-edged and compelling as the first. Gin Blanco is a fascinatingly pragmatic character, whose intricate layers are just beginning to unravel. Estep has truly hit the jackpot with this outstanding series!” (Romantic Times)

    "Excellent! "

    Fantastic audio book with spice, heat, action, violence. Gin really does bring out the violence. Yet as an assassin she should. I simply love Owen and I think Donovan is an idiot. Gin wants the idiot but for the life of me I can't figure out why. Bring on Own and Bria.

    Interesting story with an assassin as the lead character. Good character, plot, and storyline. More of Jen's handler's history is revealed, people are saved, and some problems are resolved.

    Any additional comments?

    Like the last book, the story and characters were addictive. I ended up starting and finishing it within a day. I prefer waiting to begin a series once it is already established so that I can "binge" it. I can say that this one was so awesome that I ended up purchasing all of the books and reading them all within a 2-3 week window. Both the author and the narrator did an awesome job.

    "Good story"
    Any additional comments?

    It took me a bit to get into this installment, but it got better as the story progressed. The main character is likeable and relatable despite her being an assasin. She's surprisingly down to earth and she's got her weaknesses just like everyone else. I also like the secondary characters except the detective, who I was happy to see leave by the end.

    My one complaint is the author's need to repeat details and backstory over and over. That gets old. I do like the unique style of the narrative and dialog, though, and the narrator does a great job of bringing the story to life with the various voices of the characters. I'm definitely going to listen to the next book.

    "Better than the first"

    I enjoyed this book much more than the first one. Gin is badass! I only have one complaint. The Caine/Gin fiasco. I hated it in the first book and I hated it here. I respect Caine for staying true to himself and not brushing aside his morals and values just to be with Gin. I never understood her determination to be with him when he was so clearly not the right person for her. At all! They didn't even get along, it was just attraction. So I lost a little respect for her through her interactions with him and the way she acted when he was trying to make a good decision for both of them. Didn't like it all. Hopefully that is truly taken care of now. I'm thinking the next book is gonna be a good one!

    Story
    "I Really Wanted To Like It"

    I really wanted to like, heck love, Web of Lies, I really did, but I found myself sort of bored with the story.

    With the way Web of Lies started off I was like, “YES, Gin might’ve retired, but she still ain’t no one to play with,” but then that went down hill when she gets lumped with trying to save Violet and her grandfather, who had a connection with her mentor, and the story sort of stood still.

    Another thing that I hoped that wouldn’t carry over into Web of Lies was this romance, or possible romance, that Gin had with the detective. That man pissed me off so much with his holier than thou attitude in Spider’s Bite that I really hoped we wouldn’t have to deal with his shenanigans in Web of Lies. Sadly, Gin got it in her head that she could actually see a future between them and was in her feelings a lot more than I think she should’ve been towards him. To be honest I think she should’ve held all of those hopes she had for a possible future with them and waited for someone to come along who would’ve been worth the effort, like Owen Grayson…he’s yummy.

    Regardless of what all I’ve been saying about Web of Lies it wasn’t a filler story, nor was it full of the sequel curse I’ve heard about and experienced with a lot of second books in a series, but on the heels of Spider’s Bite I thought that Web of Lies was going to be more explosive. The beginning started off with such promise but then it waned and continued that way till the very end. I am confident, though, that Venom will definitely bring that savagery that I read/listened about in Spider’s Bite, since Web of Lies brought Gin a huge step closer in formulating her plan in confronting Mab Monroe.

    "Addicting but hoping next is better"

    Listening to this book got me hooked again. I do get tired of hearing of her past over and over again, but hearing how she became an assassin was better. Another thing that I got frustrated with was how she thought everything was about her and what she wanted and what was being done to her. I will be reading the next one, these characters are easy to get addicted too and the narrator voice of this book is so good! Even though Gin can frustrate me, these books obviously is doing its job of getting me hooked and involved with the characters.
