Spider's Bite

Author:Jennifer Estep

"My name is Gin, and I kill people."

Spider's Bite is action packed, and it really gets your adrenalin pumping. Gin is a major kick-butt heroine. She is fierce and full of attitude. She is a stone elemental, meaning she can manipulate stone to do as she pleases, and turn her skin into a hard defense. She also is an ice elemental but that power is secondary. She is an assassin, and a pretty good one. She lives in Ashland and works for her mentor/boss Fletcher. He owns the Pork Pit. He also gets her the assassin jobs he is the go between. You learn other people have elemental powers such as, fire, air, and others. You also learn Gin isn't the only assassin roaming the streets of Ashland. Gin's plans quickly take a turn for the worst. She finds herself involved with Donavon Caine an honorable rule following detective. Ashland has some pretty powerful villains such as Mabs Monroe who is kind of like a mob boss. She is a powerful fire elemental who runs Ashland.I love the idea of a female mob boss this book shows how awesome girls can be. This book is a thrilling read with lots of action, and suspense. Its the perfect Urban Fantasy tale.

I got this book from Pocket Books.

You all are really killing me! I want this book really, really badly. I just have this thing with myself, I only let myself get so many books here and then I have to get through so many of them before I get more. It's just me. But this book is on the list to get when I get to that point of buying books again.

Thanks for the great review! Every review of this book I read I learn something new, and they are all going to drive me to buy the book asap. lol.
