    "Don't Annoy The Spider!!"

    The spider is back and back with force.... You get to finally know a big-ish secret, and you get to know that if you annoy the spider too many times, then she will just finish you.... So stay away from the spider everyone.

    I'm going to spoil this book if i say anything else... So lets just say that it was much much better than the previous one, and it established few things which will make the upcoming ones more exciting.

    "will she ever get better at using her powers"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I will be getting the next book. I'm starting to get tired of the filler and reiterating of who she is and I'm stunned on the fact of her powers and how she beat Mab Monroe who was the st strongest elemental in 500 years and she is now the strongest and has trouble with everyone else that was scared of Mab. The stories are great except the filler just the fights with the bosses could be more believable and it would be nice to see her learn more about her magic and actually use her full potential besides one time out of what 12 books now.

    "Another Good book"

    I liked the book, went by fast. My only problem is that the book somewhat veered from the previous books. I say that because of her capabilities in the other book should have allowed her to do certain things that in this book she could not (don't want to ruin the book for anyone). That being said, I do enjoy the series and will continue to listen.

    "The Spider doing her thing"

    Another action packed installment of the Elemental Assassin. It's Gin's Birthday book, Happy Birthday Genevieve Snow!

    I love Lauren Fortengang's interpretation of the Spider so I had preordered this book at audible. Definitely a wise decision if I may say so. This audiobook was all that I had hoped it would be. I had been waiting for this enemy for awhile and this book resolved many issues and paved the way for a new war.

    Someone is dealing drugs, a new kind of drug called Burn, and it is worse than anything Ashland and South town had seen in a long time. When the Pork Pit waitress, Catalina, was accosted by her friend and forced to sell drugs, Gin stepped in to help Catalina. Of course, this inserted the Spider into Ashland's underworld, and again forcing her to clean up the mess the Ashland PD couldn't.

    What I liked about this book was that Gin finally reached a comfortable place in her tenous relationship with Bria, her baby sister. Bria is a judgmental, self righteous cop (the female Donovan Caine) and everything was just black and white with her. In this book she finally saw the shaded areas Gin lived in and she was finally humbled (or smacked her off her high horse).

    My favorite part was the fact that the focus of this book was on the Spider and that is when Gin is at her best--Kicking Ashland underworld butt. Everyone connected to Gin makes an appearance and we finally get to meet MM Monroe. It's sad but I am excited because MM is definitely her mother's daughter. There is another surprise to MM Monroe too. I am excited for where this series is going.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Always entertaining"
    Any additional comments?

    Gin and the crew are back and adding members again. Pretty soon all of Southtown will be part of Gin's family. This is a hilarious and entertaining series. If you like female bad asses who have a very practical moral code and comfort food, you will like this series. I hope we see a Spider Cookbook someday. I also find it hilarious how often Gin thinks people have read her mind. If anyone assumed that much non-verbal communication in real life, s/he would be constantly frustrated by misunderstandings and criminally inefficient communication.

    "Once again a 5 star performance!"
    Any additional comments?

    Once again Gin is drawn into helping people who are close to her, fighting another drug lord wanna be to save the ones she loves, make this book a good listen. Great narration as always.

    Story
    "Another Spider does the deed..."
    Where does Poison Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That is a hard question, simply due to the amount of a-books I have (over 380). I can say that it is up in the upper 20%


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gin (like the liquor) does not disappoint. The story with its subplots moves right along. I like how the author is able to keep her story lines fresh using the same characters. This is very smart writing and I am already waiting for the next release.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    She has a southern drawl down part, living in New England for the first part of my life then spending the last 30 years on the west coast of FL I've heard my share of accents. She can bring a character to life with the little nuances.
