Widow’s Web (Elemental Assassin #7) by Jennifer Estep

Widow’s Web (Elemental Assassin #7) by Jennifer Estep
This is an adult paranormal fantasy novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four and a half Solid Stars)

Book Summary

I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.

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.

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 in town, 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.

My Review

Okay, this series is one of my favorites.  And it was a hard read because of Owen.  I loved him.  And what I hope is that the author doesn’t villainize every man that comes in Gin’s life.  Why can't a good guy stay good.  First there was Donovan.  And now Owen.  I don’t want Gin to forgive Owen but I do to.  I’m kind of hoping she and Kincaid will get together and piss on Owen, lol.

But what I don’t hope is that this series will go the way of Kim Harrison’s Hollows.  Every man in this series either is bad, becomes bad, or dies.  Personally, I feel like the author has issues with men.  I had to stop reading that series.  So this author has one more chance and if this happens again, I’m done.

My other problem was with Gin.  Here she has awesome powers but she seems to forget to use them until she’s dying.  Especially the river scene.  But I won’t say more because it will spoil.  Still I enjoyed this book and will continue reading.

As much as I hated what happened with Owen, I didn’t emotionally rate this book.  Overall, a good read with a healthy dose of drama which I love.  A thought, maybe Donovan could come back????

Audio Review
Lauren Fortgang continues to do a great job with this series.  I hope she continues with this series.
