Book Description

In book eleven of her New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series, author Jennifer Estep continues “one of the best urban fantasy series going on the market” (Fresh Fiction).

Gin Blanco is hard-nosed, sexy, and lethal. Nicknamed “The Spider,” she’s a stone elemental assassin who brings her unique mix of magic and tact to every assignment, no matter the target.

There’s a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name “Burn” sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight…

    2.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 26 July 2014
    By Ashley
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I tried really hard to enjoy this book as I really liked the first ones in the series, but it's all getting a bit repetitive.

    Gin goes to work, has to kill some would be attackers in the alley at the back of the shop, someone threatens her family/friends, she gets in a fight, gets hurt, Jo Jo heals her, she makes a nice meal from scratch, she has a few flashbacks to her times living on the streets, she goes back and against terrible odds still kicks the bad guys butt and saves the day.

    In fact it's so repetitive that even the new characters added at the end....are quite literally a rehash of some of her original enemies. I just found I really stopped caring about any of the characters, the show down fight was the best part of the book, but not enough to save it and I'm really put off by her new/but really the same old nemesis, so I'm not going to be continuing on with this series.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better and better! 26 Aug. 2014
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Jennifer Estep....I love Jennifer Estep. I don't think she's ever written a book that I haven't liked? Mythos Academy is one of those series that I repeatedly re-read whenever I need a pick me up, and Elemental Assassin is swiftly turning in to one of those as well.

    While I wholeheartedly think you should read the whole series, if you where inclined to read this as a standalone it could probably work. The book has a concise but informative description of what's gone on in the previous books so you can grasp where we're at in the current book.

    Like all of Esteps books, Poison Promise is fast paced, with a slick flow and is utterly engaging. Estep expertly mixes action and romance, with a dose of the supernatural and enough humour to make it a bad idea to read this in public! It's literally the perfect combination of genres, it's the perfect book for any mood really.

    I love Gin, she's just perfect. She's the kind of protag I love, and Estep always writes the best leading ladies! Gin has everything I love in a leading lady, she's strong, she's feisty, she's badass and she's snarky. Perfect blend of traits is perfect!

    Owen continues to be ridiculously amazing, he's supportive, he gets her and he's just adorable. Their relationship just gives you all the feels and all the warm and fuzzies and it's just squeee.

    Finn is my favourite. I love him. I couldn't love him more if I tried. He makes me flat out cackle/snort laugh/ugly laugh whatever words you want to use!

    All of Esteps characters are well written, jump off the page, they're colourful and full of depth. You can connect to them so easily, and every time you pick up the next book in the series it's like sitting down with old friends.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Is Gin the new sheriff in town? 5 Aug. 2014
    By Cheryl M-M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Why is it someone so clever, strong and streetwise always manages to end up being captured by the local psycho? You would think y now she would spend a lot more time listening to her inner alarms, then again maybe Gin just doesn't have any. this time the torture flips a switch inside of her.

    The torture or rather the effects of BURN seem to facilitate the opening of a door in Gin's psyche. The flow of emotional baggage seems hard to ebb now it has started rolling over Gin like an avalanche down a mountain. She is confronted with her inner Pandora's box of secrets and emotions she would rather not think about, hence locking them up deep inside.

    Gin goes all omnipotent in her battle against the drug-lord, perhaps a wee bit over the top. Her reputation and her ego are placing her at the same level as her opponents. She is going to have to watch those boundaries from this moment forward, because if not it will eventually become very hard to differentiate between her and the bad guys.

    I also think that Gin was and is surprised by the similarities between herself and her younger sister. Not in a good way either. Bria acting as if everyone is expendable to achieve a means to an end, despite the fact Gin often does the same I do believe it came as a bit of a shock to her.

    Meanwhile in the midst of this new conflict it becomes clear how Gin is stepping into the footsteps of Fletcher. She is building a team, quite a large and very highly skilled team, without even fully acknowledging that fact. Her family and friends have always been around her and willing to support, save or rescue her, but this is starting to feel different.

    At the end of the book we get to meet the new muscle in town. Literally the new and next generation of villains. I think Estep will try to bring back some of the Mab/Gin mortal combat magic, which always worked well for the characters and the series.

    I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

    4.0 out of 5 stars This spider bites! 24 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Is this really the eleventh book in the Elemental Assassin series? This is terrific urban fantasy that has it all suspense , action, drama, violence and of course interesting characters who keep the readers attention. I am amazed that the author keeps managing to find a new spin to put on this series and yet with this book the reader gets even more in depth knowledge about what being an elemental can really mean. Be prepared for shocks and twists galore as Ms Estep expands her characters horizons !
    Mab Monroe is dead and yet still there's no sign of peace for Gin Blanco as there are still those who continue to test her. The rumours about her being the fabled assassin The Spider , have spread and there are many shady characters in the seedy underbelly of Ashland who fear her. When she steps in to help a waitress she has no idea just what the repercussions will be and it's about to get very messy indeed. There's a new drug on the street and it's distributor , vampire Beauregard Benson is determined to push it no matter who gets hurt. Gins sister Bria a police detective is on to him and when her case collides with Gins newest problem then it's time to show the people of Ashland just what the Blanco sisters are made of!
    Ok as usual the author has written a fast paced and incredibly well written story with a plot that left this reader spinning! I love that Gin is able to come out fighting and in this book you will be cheering as she gives us an almost "high noon" moment! Yes, this spider may usually be found hiding in darkness but when it's time to step into the light those bad guys better start running! Simply fabulous!
