Publisher's Summary

Every bloody thread has been leading to this....

I’ve battled a lot of bad guys in my time, both as Gin Blanco and as the notorious assassin the Spider. But I’ve never faced off against anyone quite as powerful and deadly as the dastardly leader of the Circle secret society. 

Just when I finally have a lead on how I can defeat the evil group once and for all, new information comes to light that throws me for a loop. Suddenly, everyone and everything I love is in imminent peril of being destroyed, and I’m racing against the clock to figure out a way to save my friends.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, and the danger has never been greater. Somehow, I need to weave one last strand in my web of death - and kill my enemies before they kill me....

hope it isn't the end

I love these books. gin is an awesome character. I love a good story. it is hard to find a good story without reverse harems or more sex scenes than story. please keep it going. Gin's story has much more steam.

Loved the series but it didn’t need…

The heavy sex. The story carried the day fine without the seemingly mandatory sex scenes to fast forward through.

Just saying.

Good character development and an engaging developing story line. Happy with all the flashback dreams in the last book to tie things up.

Thanks for an enjoyable ride.

Amazing! Was Tempted to Listen All Over Again.

I listened to this series for the first time last year and was waiting for the finale. It didn't disappoint. Gin started out as a powerful heroine with a tragic backstory who became an assassin to get revenge for her murdered family but throughout the series she has struggled against stronger and stronger enemies and made friends along the way. This time she is confronting the strongest elemental she has ever faced and it's nice to see how Gin has grown. She has allies she trusts and has grown into her powers. I wasn't sure how she would beat the mastermind who only recently revealed himself but I think the finale was great because it is the culmination of all she has learned. For her to fight smart, trust in her allies and to do what she finds so difficult; to ask for help. While she can't turn back the past she is finally able to accept that many good things have happened because of it too and she has people who are important to her that she may never have met if the tragedy hadn't occurred.

Last Strand

Now if the series ends with this book I would be happy it was a good place to end it and to give us hope for what is to come.
Gin and the gang are at it again to stop her Uncle from making downtown Ashton into his personal play thing.
I don’t want to give anything way but if you made it this far you know it’s going to be a fight.
Again the narration is good but still wish the voice for Finn wasn’t so off.

great series!

I have listened to the whole series and I must say that it was totally entertaining! the characters were very believable and the seemed to grow with the story line, the story line was always exiting from the beginning to the end. I look forward to listening to more of this author 's books. I highly recommend this series. truly loved them!

The final solution

In this last book for a long while, Estep winds things up pretty well. Gin Bkanco and her friends finally lay The Circle and Uncle Mason to rest. There are a few battles in the story but Gin uses her brains more so to defeat her uncle. Her friends stick with her to the very end and Gin gains another ally. A good read all around but not as spectacular as earlier books. I know this is the last full length novel for a long while but I look forward to the novellas planned for the series. Gin Blanco, alias The Spider, my favorite assassin of them all.

Predictable!

For being an assassin, she's not that quick. She's always, "just a little late", "not fast enough". It makes it hard to believe. She's also got the biggest guilt complex that I have ever seen. Waa, waa, waa.......she spends an exorbitant amount of time crying about how it's her fault!!! I guess it's because she's the center of everyone's universe!
If you've read one book, you've read them all! The same tune.
