Publisher's Summary

Lethal, sexy, and always ready to protect her friends, Gin Blanco (a.k.a. the Spider) takes on the mysterious M.M. Monroe in Book 12 of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series.There’s nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill - and my murder to plan. With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit. The thing is, I’m not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident - and that each unfortunate "coincidence" is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bull’s-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy’s master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.

Read from December 19 to 26, 2014

Read/Listened for Fun (Paperback/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 5.00 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thoughts when Finished: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep was another strong entry in Elemental Assassins series. The characters are still as bad*ss as ever. Also, I really dug the different way that this all "played" out in the end. MM was not my favorite villain in the series but I think she maybe was the craftiest. I was just happy that it appears Bria is finally ok with her sister (let's hope cause if not I am taking Finn back).

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Lauren Fortgang /Length: 10 hrs and 17 mins

Once a series goes into automatic listen (which this is for me) I sound a bit like a broken record. However, let me state this again: Lauren nails Gin and Gang with the sass, brass, and southern of a narrator who just might really be an elemental assassin! She is that convincing :) So just listen to it already!

Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! reviews

Super surprise ending

What made the experience of listening to Black Widow the most enjoyable?

It was very different from the other stories, the line was very active and fast. Non-stop action from start to finish.

What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

Lauren Fortgang is one of my favorite narrators, she's fantastic with different voices even men. She's also great with emotions. I've listened to her narrations in other books by other authors.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Several, especially the end which is a real twist. (fans will love it)

Any additional comments?

I've listened to every book in the series and only one (book 6) I didn't enjoy. because of Detective Donovan Caine, who was so pompous it made the story annoying. (glad he's not in any of the stories anymore)

Another adrenaline filled adventure for Gin Blanco

Jennifer Estep has produced yet another terrific Gin Blanco story. Love the way Gin's enemies elemental powers keep getting wierder and the deaths more gruesome. Lauren Fortgang continues to be the perfect narrator for this series.
