Publisher's Summary

The 16th book in the New York Times best-selling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls "an extraordinary series...[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre".

If you don't know Gin "the Spider" Blanco, you don't know dangerous female heroines.

Irony 101 - the Spider herself snared in someone else's web...

Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city's underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.

My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I'm not holding out much hope that she's still alive.

A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I'm used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy - one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.

    Story
    "Gin is off her game this time but still fun"

    As always, Gin's never ending battle against evil in Ashland completely dominated everything.

    Usually I can overlook some of her mistakes as just the luck of the draw, but the initial scene at the den window played like slapstick instead of a skilled assassin lurking for information. And when she later stepped on a creaking board in a hall she had been down before while trying to catch an intruder, all I could do was roll my eyes. At this point it was obvious that the author was manipulating the action to fit her needs. Now, I realize that this is something all authors must do, but Estes is generally more skilled and less obvious at the ploy.

    I also figured out a number of the mysteries fairly early in the story and kept waiting for Him to catch up and poverty me right. For once, I was exactly right. The clues were a bit too obvious this time.

    Still, I enjoyed the story and it did a good job of advancing the overarching plot line as well as bringing Gin some new and valuable allies. I will continue to purchase and read this series. And if the author continues to drop references to her Bigtime series, I may even break down and read one of those.

    "You CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS SERIES!!"

    This series is my absolute favorite!!
    Gotta love a strong but sensitive female lead!!
    Gin Blanco Kicks ASS!!
    Really love the little twist in this book.

    Not going to spoil anything, but this one was a little different, and I loved it!!

    There is still plenty of the Super Strong and fearless Spider in this, just a little different problem to face!!

    Awesome as always!!

    "A little predictible"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Gin,
    I respect Gin,
    Gin is normally much smarter than me... BUT ...
    this time the clues were just too darn obvious. I found her mistakes were something Gin would not normally do, and how come she could not put it together about who killed the girls when she told me the damage inflicted was due to a Dwarf or a Giant's blow? I know there is a a bigger story, that Estep is building, but hey Gin should not lose her touch just because she is retired.

    "Spider takes on the Lipstick killer"

    This installment was one of my favorites in the series. It continues this new mystery of Gin's mother Eira Snow and her involvement with the Circle. I love this series and I love the characters. Each book holds my interest because they are action-packed and the mystery Gin Blanco has to solve always keeps me thoroughly entertained.

    The narrator Lauren Fortgang slays again. She just makes this audiobook feel like watching a movie. I don't think I can read the book without hearing her voice as snarky Gin. In addition, I love the way the author Jennifer Estep weaves a story using the past simultaneously with the present. I feel as though Fletcher is alive because he is so instrumental in all of Gin's escapades. Either that or Fletcher was one hell of a sage because he was light years ahead of his time when it came to predicting what his protege would need in the future. Finn seemed to be much better emotionally than the last couple of books after the betrayal by his mother Deidra Shaw. He was back to trading witty repartee with Gin. I found myself chuckling a lot in this book. The snarky delivery by the Spider makes her one of my favorite heroines. She's sassy and smart-alecky but she always gets the job done.

    This book was definitely top 3 best installments in this series. If you love the past books, this one is the same but continuing this slow revelation about the Circle. I'm hoping the leader of the The Circle is as fierce as the legendary fire elemental, Mab Monroe, because no other villain has measures up. I'm looking for a crime lord who will make the Ashland quake in their boots.

    "Best Chapter yet!"

    The saga continues, what was the relationship between her Mom and Tucker.
    And is it possible that her Mom and Sister are still alive. Can't wait for the next chapter. Also, I love how they introduced more characters.

    "Having disliked the previous book"

    Thought the previous book was terrible , too repetitive. Thought to give the series one more chance and glad I did. This was more original by bringing a serial killer (not a spoiler as revealed quickly and the crux of the story) but keeping with the previous stories.

    Good twists and hope that 15 was just a blip.

    Love this series. Love the stories and the brilliant voice of Lauren Fortgane I was once again attached to my headphones for the entire story. Wondering what twists would happen when. I was not disappointed
