Kurzbeschreibung

The seventh book in the hugely popular Elemental Assassin series by New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Estep—Gin Blanco is back and ready for action.

I used to murder people for money, but lately it’s become 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 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.

Spoiler Warning for the events in the previous books in the "Elemental Assassin" series. The books each contibute to a strong overall story-arc and since this is the 7th installment in the series, a lot already happened to Gin Blanco and the rest of the cast of characters [well, some of them are even dead in the meantime]. If you are new to "Elemental Assassin", I recommend to stop reading here and start at book one "Spider's Bite". This just isn't a good place to start digging into the series.

Synopsis [by Goodreads.com]

Gin Blanco, an assassin known as the Spider, plays a dangerous game with her adversary, Salina, who, using her water-elemental magic, is involved with a shady local casino owner and wants Gin's lover Owen Grayson for herself.

Review

Well, this time the Goodreads.com-content is quite innocuous, especially considering that this is a heart-wrenching and breath-taking story, that made me read the book in less than a day. The mentioned adversary is not only a very powerful and rather crazy and vengeful waterelemental, but Owen's ex-fiancee. Yes. Gin and I were gasping along.
Since the Amazon-description speaks of it, I can tell a bit more as well: Salina is back in town and has at least two things on her mind, getting Owen back [don't they always?] and filling the void Mab Monroe's death left in the Ashland underworld. If there are a few casualities along the road, i.e. murdered victims, well so be it.

This is actually not only Gin's story, but we get to know a lot about Owen and his sister Eva's past and how hard their life on the street had been. And we get to know how things with Owen and Salina and the rest of their family and friends played out - and this was awesomely done!

I can not get enough of this books. I really like the point of view from a fromer assassin. Not because it is bloody but because it is straight to the fact how most of the people would like to act if they were in this kind of position.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally a little more Character Depth 21. Juni 2016
Von Robin Snyder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

There was something I felt that was missing from this series and I really couldn’t put my finger on it until this book. I like it was that I felt most of time the characters were 2 dimensional. There is a problem….let’s go kill the people causing it. Oh…you just showed up covered in blood and probably killed some people, that’s fine I’ll just clean you up and accept it as it. It was like there were only the emotions on the surface for most of the characters and nothing was really very complex. Until now.

Most of the other books fell just a little flat for me like a picture drawn in 2D. Until this book where I felt like Gin and Owen especially became 3D characters and incredibly more detailed and interesting.

Normally I don’t love the addition of emotional angst to my assassin story. BUT in this case I’ll let it pass because the plot needed it to make sense and it made the villain a lot more interesting.

Owen has been perfect up until now. Perfectly understanding, Perfectly patient, perfectly giving, perfect…perfect…perfect. Honestly I was a little bored with him. Gin runs off and almost get herself killed he is there for her. Gin runs off and does something maybe a little stupid Owen totally understands doesn’t get mad and just hugs her. Gin ‘talks’ with her former booty call guy Donovan to hash out her feeling and he is completely patient understanding and not even really upset….You get my point right.

Owen has a slightly skewed morality. He is completely fine with Gin’s extracurricular activities and since he has feelings for her he is totally accepting. But what happens when someone he used to love comes into the picture and she also has some deadly skills and Owen is completely accepting of her too??? How well does our assassin handle that?

Salina was Owen’s first love and he was going to marry her until she disappeared. Owen lived with that guilt for 15 years so his instinct is to do everything he can to make up for it and protect that woman now.

Gin has never really had a real romantic relationship and so this is all a struggle for her. Plus is doesn’t help that Salina is a manipulative BeOtCh and is just out to steal her man. Also, she might be slightly crazy and is killing everyone she deems an enemy or threat. Guess who made it onto that list. Yep Gin…she finds all the crazy people.

Still I really liked the plot of this one. It was intense in places and I worried how Gin and Salina going up against each other was going to affect her relationship with Owen. How Gin’s tendency to do whatever she wants and not caring about what others said or think was going to play when it didn’t really line up with what the man she loves wanted.

Finally there was some depth to the characters and the major plot point wasn’t some raping, sadistic bastard. Finally Gin’s relationship wasn’t all roses and sunshine all the time. Finally there was the something more I was looking for.

So...wow. This installment was no joke! Salina Dubois strolls into Ashland like a hurricane straight out of your worst nightmare. She is all southern belle sweet on the outside, but chic packs a serious mental health cray-zay punch. Not only is she mentally unstable, but she's a powerful water elemental and she has an intimate past with Owen that she is bound and determined to rekindle. Though, I am unsure if she ever thought it ended. I mean, chic is out there. The sad thing is, Owen fell under her manipulative spell many years ago and still harbors a soft spot for her, despite her dangerous ways. This puts Gin in quite a predicament, given that Salina needs to be dealt with, if you know what I mean.

Salina was an insanely awesome villain. The kind that you simultaneously feel empathy for and want to strangle. She was definitely molded by her environment and experiences, which were traumatic and tragic. She was in a dark place for a very long time, and the grief and anger turned her into a monster. It was hard for me to dislike Salina 100%. I saw so much of Gin in Salina, and it made my heart hurt. I know very well how much your experiences shape who you are, and I felt Salina got the shaft. Even Gin felt fer Salina in some moments...

"For a moment, I almost felt sorry for her. Then the bitch blasted me with her water magic, and I got over it."

Ha. Nothing like a good dose of water magic to wake you up! Half the time I was really sad for Salina's situation, but the other half I was all...KAPOOYA! KAPOOYA! She was indeed a monster with little to nope of rehabilitation.

Salina was a master manipulator, and she had Owen twisted around her dainty little fingers. Gin steps back and gives Owen space to come to his own conclusions about Salina. Gin was quite sensitive to his history with the water elemental, but she may have needed to get out the trout for a few good #troutslaps. The #troutslap can be more effective at times, depending on how far gone a person is. #justsayin. Salina makes her quest a wee bit personal for Gin's liking, and when Gin realizes that a major line has been crossed, the elemental crap hits the fan.

This book has all kinds of sads, for a variety of characters. Gin has to make a seriously tough decision in this book, despite the painful consequences. She takes on a lot of heartache to keep the people she loves safe and protected. I think that regardless of the situation and the people involved, Gin is going to remain loyal to her code and do what needs to be done to keep herself and her people safe. The end of the book was sorrowful and somber, and I really hope that our beloved characters have some relief and resolution in Deadly Sting.

P.S. I REALLY want one of those shirts regarding Gin and the Pork Pit that people wore in this book!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen One Glaring Flaw (and a bit of nitpicking) 29. August 2014
Von Paige Ellen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've followed this series from the start. I have truly enjoyed it, and have readily accepted how easily Gin Blanco seems, somewhere early on in each book, gets caught up in some silly dilemma that any one, especially a skilled assassin as she, could see coming a mile away. I believe it is fair to say that each volume of the series fits a formula, and this entry fits that formula. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There is no point in going over the particulars, since "Widow's Web" follows the formula quite well. JE ends with Gin in angst, but with an improved relationship to her sister and some unexpected changes in her relationships to some other characters that are,in general, positive. Estep writes series for the most part, and she does well with character and relationship development.
I gave the book only three stars since,over all, it clings to said formula a bit too tightly. I must admit that one part of the formula that I do love about it is the visceral joy I get from Estep's writing comes from her action scenes. I swear I can feel punches landing, bones breaking, blades slicing through flesh, and I can see and feel blood and other bodily fluids spurting, oozing and flowing, as well as the urgent lethality of many of so many of those wounds. That is what keeps me reading each book,even when "THE FORMULA" is heavily guiding the action.
Now to some nitpicking in which I believe I must indulge. The first point I have already flogged; the somewhat overbearing presence of the formula. The other is truly petty, really small, but it just bugs me, so, here it is. The hero of the series runs a bbq restaurant,one of those kind of run down places that looks smarmy, but serves such great food it just keeps you coming back. Our hero is named GIN Blanco and she always refers to the place as her "gin joint." AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!! I get it! Her name is Gin and she likes to drink gin. Cute. But her "joint" doesn't even serve booze! If my memory serves, the phrase dates back to the days of prohibition. It referred to a speakeasy where illegal booze, often called, "bathtub gin," because of the way it was distilled, with stills dripping their truly awful production literally into real bathtubs. Okay,use the damn pun once in a while, here or there, but not every time she refers to the place!
I told you I was nitpicking and I meant it. No excuses, no explanations, I don't even know why it bugs me, but it does. I know this admission really is whacked, but I feel so much better owning up to it. Call me a pedant and/or a nutcase; it's MY nit and I have now picked it. Thanks for listening. I do feel so much better.
Oh yeah, the book. If you are already a fan of the series, read it because events critical to the story arc and to character and relationship do occur. If you have heard about the series and want in, don't start with this entry. It's number eight,I believe, but you'll not get the full importance of much of what happens in terms of the story arc and the relationships between many of the characters. It really is a good series, so start at the beginning and you'll not only get caught up in a good, well written series,you may find your own nits to pick...
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best in the series but still enjoyable 11. Dezember 2013

I have read quite a few reviews that think this book is really bad. I do not really agree with that. I have also read quite a few reviews that say Owen is an a--hole. I do not agree with that either. He is incredibly stupid but not an a--hole.

Having said that, personally I do think that this was one of the weaker, if not the weakest, book in the series so far and I have to admit that Owen had a lot to do with that.

Gin is back in Ashton fending of low-life coming to The Pork Pit thinking that they can take her out. Actually this starts to become laughable now. These idiots must have a dedicated queue at the gates of hell by now given how many she has disposed of. I would have thought that we would either run out or they would learn what a bad idea this is.

Anyway, things start to heat up when Salina turns up and Owen’s brain turns into mush. As I said, Owen is not an a--hole but really really stupid. In the beginning it might be somewhat understandable but after Gin and another two of Owen’s old acquaintances have proven what a despicable character Salina is he still behaves very stupidly. Kindly but stupidly. This entire business with Owen and Salina and the impact it has on Gin’s and Owen’s relationship is really not very fun and drags the book down. Some people seem to think that their relationship is ruined but, quite frankly, I do not understand where people get these die-hard judgments from? It might be ruined but I think that is far from clear from the book. Actually, I think there were several indices that it might not be.

Otherwise the book was not too unlike previous books. There was a good fight somewhere around the middle as there always is and Gin got fairly much clobbered as usual. This time the fight was forced on here though instead of the usual amateurish first attempt to kill her target as we have been treated with in most of the other books. This is one thing that starts, or maybe I should say continues, to bug me though. Gin is supposedly sooo powerful, or at least being told that, and have taken out the most powerful fire elemental born in 500 years but yet she is always weaker, often a lot, than her main opponents. It would be nice to read about Gin giving the baddies a surprise and slapping them around for once.

In the end the baddies are taken down as usual even though the ending is not entirely a happy one due to this unnecessary mess the author have created between Gin and Owen. I definitely did not like that part. Otherwise the book is an enjoyable one in much the same style as previous books in the series and Gin also made a new friend that could be quite interesting in future books.
