Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin, #1) by Jennifer Estep

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis: After Gin’s family was murdered by a Fire elemental when she was thirteen, she lived on the streets and eventually became an assassin to survive. Now, Gin is given an assignment by her handler to rub out an Ashland businessman, but it turns out to be a trap. After Gin’s handler is brutally murdered, she teams up with the sexy detective investigating the case to figure out who double-crossed her and why. Only one thing is for sure —Gin has no qualms about killing her way to the top of the conspiracy. (Amazon, Spider’s Bite Kindle Edition)

OMG! I love this book. It had me ensnared from the beginning until the end.

At first, though, I was a bit sceptic; was “Gin”, the protagonist insane… out of her mind? but then everything made sense and I was irreversibly hooked!

The plot is amazing, the beginning (after that first hiccup) incredibly good, the middle perfect, the crescendo breathtaking and the ending unbelievably good!

The characters are dynamic, the use of language great, the world-building excellent and the themes are spectacular!

I highly recommend reading this book. It’s excellent!
