24% in and there has been one new assassin/chase sequence and two new characters, balanced by yet another recap on Gin's background, her elemental powers including her spider rune and new ring, her retirement and ownership of the Pork Pit, Fletcher, Owen, Finn, Bria, Jojo, Sophia, Vinnie and daughter, Roslyn, Mab, and Xavier- I could go on. OK so I was sucked in by the cute cover for this book and the promise of Mab's demise, but frankly I'm fed up of being treated like a goldfish by Ms Estep.

Five novels into the series, this just isn't good enough. I'm now pretty confident I could just cut and paste the reunion sex scene with Owen, another dream sequence, a confrontation/near miss with Bria, a sandwich break, a reminder that Gin always checks the stones before she goes home, and just how awful all of Mab's deceased lackies were, leaving Estep to drop in a near death final hit scene focused around Mab's fire element, where Gin, surprisingly, discovers she is stronger than she thought, Gentry & Co swap sides at the last minute and Finn/Owen pick her up and drop her off at JoJo's for some super air healing.

I've always found this series to be formulaic-and I don't necessarily have a problem with that. But enough is enough. I have no intention of paying for any more books where the author seems to ignore the fact that some of us have actually paid for and read the preceding novels.

Postscript: A shame as the rest of the novel actually had a fair number of action scenes, twists and a stronger pace than books 1-4... But I'm done.

Fantastic book start to finish! I left a slightly negative review on the last book as I found the beginning quite repetitive but that's because I'm only now reading this series and the books back to back so for me it is repetitive but this book wasn't like that at all! Yes she touched on previous events as any author would do writing a series but then she went straight into the story and it was go go go until the last page! After submitting this review I shall be downloading the next in the series on my Kindle!!! Can't wait to see what happens next!

...I didn't care who was in the room with her."

This, the fifth book in Jennifer Estep's 'Elemental Assassin' series, finally sees matters between Stone/Ice elemental Gin Blanco (born Genevieve Snow, and known as the assassin 'The Spider') and her family's murderer, Fire elemental underworld boss Mab Monroe, come to a head. And it's all-action from the very beginning, as the book opens with Gin lying in wait to assassinate Mab at the mob boss's own dinner party. But it's not just Gin out to get Mab. For, when a surprising upsurge of crime reaches the city it doesn't take long for Gin to discover that the reason for this is that Mab has offered a huge bounty for the capture of Gin's sister (police detective Bria Corrigan) and an even larger bounty for the death/capture of 'The Spider'. With a massive bounty up for grabs, just about every bounty hunter in the US has descended on Ashland seeking to cash in.

Given that this is the showdown between Gin and Mab that has been building up since book one, there are certain aspects of the story that are to some extent a forgone conclusion, nonetheless this could still have been a rip-roaring confrontation upon which to end the book. Unfortunately, that wasn't where things stopped. Jennifer Estep's contract is for another two books in the series (at least) so whilst this one, according to Estep's website "finish[es] out the first major story arc" she also seems to feel it necessary to set things up for the continuation of the series. Too much time towards the end of this book is spent preparing the way for Book 6, By a Thread, and this undermines the effectiveness of Gin's confrontation with Mab.

This book is what we have all been waiting for - the show down between Gin and Mab.

The book as more action packed and we do learn some new details about Gin's past and get an idea at how influential Gin's family must have been and potentially wealthy.

The author has gone all out in the narrative for the major fight seen and you could really see it in your minds eye.

I'm not sure how this book can be topped.

This book was a great end to the ongoing battle between Gin and Mab, I was totally gripped by their battles and couldn't possibly see how things would resolve. I was happy to see how Gin's relationship with her sister and boyfriend developed and find out the truth behind the dwarves backgrounds. The only thing that annoyed me was this should have tied the story up but it has yet again been left open for a sequel, which to me felt wrong like the author is trying to drag out a successful story for the sake of it. I can't really see where a next book will go and I can't help but feel that it will just begin to feel "same old". Probably the most frustrating thing is that I know I will buy it anyway!

There have been a few confrontations in earlier books, but prepare for the big one as Gin Bianco (aka The Spider, the best assassin around) makes her private war with Mab Monroe public knowledge and sets out to finally kill the woman who murdered her family.

Of course, taking out Mab proves more difficult than anticipated, plus some plain bad luck seems to dog Gin's attempts. Mab is a powerful enemy, plus her goon gang of giants can certainly cause some damage, yet Gin has friends and family who are willing to die for and with her; from her lover Owen to her foster brother Finn, and from her newly found sister Bria, to Sophie and Jo-Jo, a pair of dwarves with their own elemental power.

Expect the same level of explosive action and tension found in the previous books in this series. Gin is often in some very uncomfortable situations, and she's highly aware her personal war with Mab endangers those she loves. There aren't the usual twists and turns to the plot as Gin's identity as The Spider is revealed, instead expect one confrontation after another until Gin and Mab finally battle each other in an exciting finale. There is a conclusion to the revenge theme that has dominated this series so far, but JE sets the scene nicely for Gin to continue on utilising her deadly skills in further books "By A Thread" and "Widow's Web".
