Overview

Spider's Revenge (Elemental Assassin Series #5) by Jennifer Estep

Old habits die hard for assassins.

And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through.

Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen. Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second. Good thing I’ve got my powerful Ice and Stone magic—and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson—to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a good chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me . . . no matter what I have to do to make that happen.

When stone-ice elemental Gin Blanco was a teen, Mab Monroe the fire elemental murdered her mother and her sister. Gin dedicated her life seeking vengeance. Diligently training for the moment, the cold blooded assassin called Spider has been changed by those who cherish her especially her lover Owen Grayson. Thus when the opportunity arises for the final kill, she misses the shot with her crossbow. Mab knows the true identity of Spider and why she targets her. She places an exorbitant amount of money for the head of Spider and Bria the babysitter. Prepared for a lone wolf mano a mano with Mab and her cohorts including a zillion or so bounty hunters, Gin is stunned when those who love her stand at her side. Readers, who have anxiously waited for the High Noon showdown in the Elemental Assassins urban fantasy saga (see Spider's Bite, Web of Lies, Venom, Tangled Threads, and Spider's Revenge), will not be disappointed with Spider's Revenge. The heroine has come a long way in preparing to execute her vendetta, but the thing she could not prevent is the love and caring for others that ironically soften her to where her edge may be to dull. Action-packed with a strong cast, Jennifer Estep provides a strong tale in which the story line surpasses fans anticipation. Harriet Klausner

Here it is.the final showdown with Mab Monroe. Gin has been waiting for this moment since she was thirteen and her family was slaughtered by Mab. Us readers have been waiting anxiously for this moment too! She has trained relentlessly and owes it to everyone she loves to end Mab's life. But, one thing is different. Gin is not the same hard core assassin. She has softened and it is affecting her job. She misses her target. That's right, Gin misses killing Mab with her crossbow and now Mab knows who she is and who her loved ones are. Gin and Owen work together to get everyone to safety but they know that they don't have long. Mab has put a bounty on Gin and Bria's head and every bounty hunter and assassin has gathered to claim them. One pair of assassins, Gentry and Sydney, reminds Gin of herself and Fletcher. When she is cornered by them Gin gets the upper hand but decides to let them go hoping that she doesn't regret it. When Gentry kidnaps Bria, Gin regrets her decision but hopes deep down that Bria won't be harmed before Gin can get to her. Own and Gin's relationship is truly tested in Spider's Revenge. Gin comes to terms with the fact that someone can actually love her even with her alternate career and lifestyle. She also learns that what she does affects everyone that she knows and there are consequences for some of her actions. Bria is also coming to terms with what her older sister has is but the family bond is strong and she accepts it. Finn seems to be slowing down on the skirt chasing because he has an eye for Bria but Bria will have nothing to do with him. I will stop there with everything because I don't want to give away many details of the book. It is non-stop action as always. Right away in the beginning we are thrown into Gin's attempt on Mab and everything rolls from there. All Estep's characters have evolved and I am curious to see what direction the next installment will take. I really enjoyed getting to know Sophia more. Here story is finally recounted and you just break inside for her! And of course it wouldn't be an Elemental Assassin book if you didn't add in a brownie recipe that made my mouth water. If you haven't read this series yet, you should.

As in every book in this series there is a great plot and great characters that keep you in the story. I always can't wait for the next one.

3stars – Ding Dong Ding Dong the witch is dead. I’m glad that Gin finally got her revenge on Mab and that we get to learn more about some of the secondary characters but I think I may be done with the series. Was it not for the repetition I may have it rated higher because underneath the repetition was a decent story bringing closure to that particular storyline

Go Spider!! A regular "High Noon" story. It was great that at least one villan got their come uppance and Spider had closure for her kin. Of course there must be more adventures coming and I will be looking forward to reading more!

This 4th book in the Elemental assassins series finally has Gin going up against Mab and her army of henchmen--and bounty hunters--since Mab has gotten frustrated and called in outside help to take down the Spider, Gin's nom-d'morte. It also shows more interaction between Gin and her baby sister, now that they have re-united. The rest of Gin's usual "gang" are there too, and there are re-appearances of those that Gin's helped in the past, all joining in to help protect her. Really good read, and I did enjoy having the final confrontation with Mab.

I really like the story line and most of the characters but each novel has so much explanation of Gin's past life, who she met and what has happened that it becomes redundant. Its almost like filler to make the stories long enough. If the reader doesnt tough it out and get through the repetition then the novel goes unread. I adapted a 'skipping skill' when Gin had her flashbacks but it was frustrating. Its too bad that J Estep handles her writing this way.

Gin Blanco, aka The Spider, returns in book five of the Elemental Assassin series, Spider's Revenge. The main purpose of this book is going after the fire elemental, Mab Monroe. In the previous book, she was toying with Mab. I knew she would have to deal with her once and for all and it was going to be a big battle. I wasn't let down, the face off was years in the making. Mab was the one who murdered Gin's mother and sister when she was just a child. She also tortured Gin, and left her mark on her by burning a spider medallion into her hands. Gin has a lot to lose if she doesn't manage to kill Mab. Since the beginning of the series, she has slowly been putting down roots and caring for people. Finally reconnecting with her long lost sister, Bria she can't afford to lose her now. Add in that Gin and Owen are moving to the next level, they're being honest and accepting each other for who they are. She can't afford to make any mistakes. I really enjoyed Spider's Revenge. It was a pretty intense read, that had me wondering if Gin would be able to pull it off without getting herself killed in the process. I highly recommend the Elemental Assassin series, and I will be listening to the next audiobook in the very near future. If you're not a fan of audiobooks, I'd recommend trying out this series. I was never fond of audiobooks until I ran across this one.

I must say that I was very disappointed in this book. I can't quite put my finger on it but something about this story just rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe it was the story, or lack there of. The fact that with the exception of the last couple of chapters the story was exactly the same as the other four stories before it. Maybe it was the style of writing itself which wasn't exactly how I prefer to have my writers write. Maybe it was the fact that the author seems to go out of her way to be crude just to prove that she can. And maybe it is the fact that if I have to read one more character who thinks that they are in love but also try to tell the world that they are so messed up that they can't admit it, and they certain don't act like it I think I'm gonna have to punch someone in the face. Whatever the case I hope the next one in the series is better otherwise I might finally have to give up on this author.

This series started off great, but has become very predictable and repetitive. Estep uses the exact same phrases and descriptions she's used in each of the previous four books. Feels kind of cut-and-paste at this point.
