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).
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!

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)

After tge disappointment with previous book I wasn't expecting this one to be any better but the writer definitely got back on track. really enjoyed this book.
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.
