Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town anyway. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back, she thinks he’s hers for the taking. Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
The book first starts out with Gin breaking into one of Owen’s buildings. She is helping him find the weak spots in his security. She bet him that she could break in and get to his office and could kill him without anyone knowing. So, him and Finn are in the office when she finally makes it to the office through the ventilation. She wins a dinner out on the town. Why they are out Owen’s ex-fiancé shows up. Now this is not good, for he has not even told her anything about Salina. Now Salina is good about playing the southern belle part and duping everyone into thinking that she is harmless. What no one knows is that she is a homicidal maniac, and she had done things to Owens Sister and he still would take her back. What a total loser. Some men have blinders on and cannot see the forest for the trees.
Gin basically has to kill Salina, because she wants to take the place of Mab, and rule the underworld in Ashland. She does not care who she kills to make it happen. When Gin does finally kill Salina this strains Owen and her relationship to the point of breaking. He can’t forgive her for killing Salina, but he can forgive Salina for hurting his Sister repeatedly. That is one messed up dude. They take a break from their relationship and they don’t know if they can repair the damage. This is such a rollercoaster ride of a book that it will pull you in and won’t let you go until the final page. Then you will want to get your hands on the next book to see what happens. The Widow’s Web story line and character development was very well done. The characters are very likeable, and the supporting characters really help to move the story along.
I love the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep, and always look forward to the next book by her. I give this book 5/5 stars.
