    "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.

    "Bria *sigh*"

    Listened for Fun (Audible)
    Overall Rating: 4.00
    Story Rating: 4.50
    Character Rating: 3.50

    Audio Rating: 5.00 (not part of the overall rating)

    First Thought when Finished: Loved the story in Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep but Bria needs to get over it already! Either accept your sister or move on.

    Story Thoughts:There was a whole lot of kicking ass in Poison Promise and I liked it. Drug King needed taking down: Gin's got it taking care of. New characters in the fold that could go either way: Gin's got that too. A whole lot of twists, turns, and snark: Gin can handle it. It was just another great adventure for Gin and crew!

    Character Thoughts: Let me be specific: every character was downright awesome except Bria. Seriously, I know it sucks that you are a cop and your sister is an assassin. Also, it sucks that she knows it is better for her to do things her way than you. JUST SUCK IT UP ALREADY. Can you tell she annoyed me a bit (or a lot) in Poison Promise? :)

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Lauren Fortgang / Length: 11 hrs and 8 mins


    If you haven't listened to Lauren narrate this series, you are seriously missing out.

    Final Thoughts: Ready for the next adventure because I think I have a new side boyfriend. Finn is still my main man!

    Story
    "So far the best in this series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've followed this series since it started. Some of the books were kind of weak, and I didn't enjoy. Out of the 11, I returned two because the story line annoyed me, and I thought Gin was made to look stupid. This one was really good. Had many twists and turns and showed Gin's growth as a person and maybe it makes her weaker because she cares so much about those close to her, but it makes her stronger because of the bond she feels. I really think this was the best in the series so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gin of course. The way she interacts with her friends and relations, her growth and strength from learning to care and go the extra mile for the sake of being true to her feelings, and for what is right. (However she's still not afraid to kick some butt to show that she's still has it)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several, but the best was at the end when she meets the daughter of her nemesis M. Monroe.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to how Jennifer Estep will continue this story with this new group of villains, who are all related to Gin's past. They seem to be stronger and more powerful than the old ones, and I'm afraid that some of the people Gin knows will be eliminated in the next few installments. It was promised in this one and the only way to continue the story would be to make it happen. Who will be eliminated, or tortured by Gin's enemies? We'll have to wait and see.

    "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.

    "LilyElement Book Reviews - Poison Promise"
    Any additional comments?

    Gin Blanco returns in book 11 of the Elemental Assassin series. This time around Gin is dealing with a drug lord that has a new drug on the street called Burn. It affects everyone, but Elementals are affected strongly. Beauregard Benson, the drug lord in question is a crazy villain. But with Gin and her posse of friends at her side, you know there will be an epic battle. I was hoping we'd find out and fight M. M. Monroe in this installment, but it's pretty much guaranteed it will be in the next book.

    I only have one real complaint in this book and it's with one of the characters. Oh Bria (Gin's sister), how I thought I was liking your character and we return to the I'm going to smack you if you keep acting like a fool. She finally accepted Gin for who she was several books back and I started enjoying her character, now it's a complete 180 and I just want to fast forward through her bits. I didn't, but I wanted to. All in all this was a solid addition to the series and I enjoyed it. I'd suggest this series for someone that enjoys Urban Fantasy.

    Story
    "For the love of cheesuz!"

    This is book 11, she takes birth control (we GET that) but does it need to be inserted EVERY TIME she and Owen are about to do the nasty? Especially if he ends up being the responsible party on safe sex in that scene?? It would be better to leave out that section instead of including taking that "little white pill."

    Apart from that, love the series. I just do an inner cringe before going onto the next book in the series because the above will more than likely make an appearance somewhere in the new one.

    For this book, we find out that Mab Munroe isn't entirely gone from Gin's life and makes out for an interesting storyline. Slow to start, but picks up after a few chapters.
