How did I end up in a career where I always have blood on my hands?
Well, let me tell you a story about an assassin who thought she could do no wrong …
Ten years ago. A blistering hot August night. I remember like it was yesterday. The night I, Gin Blanco, truly became the Spider. Killing people is what I do best, especially now that I’ve honed my Ice and Stone magic. But back then, I had yet to learn one very important rule: arrogance will get you, every single time.
This particular job seemed simple: murder a crooked building contractor with ties to ruthless Fire elemental Mab Monroe. My mentor, Fletcher Lane, had some misgivings, but I was certain that I had the situation under control … right up until I exposed my weaknesses to a merciless opponent who exploited every single one of them. There’s a reason assassins aren’t supposed to feel anything. Luckily, a knife to the heart can fix that problem, especially when I’m the one wielding it …
As you all know, I love the Elemental Assassin series. The best thing about the series is the heroine, Gin. She’s smart, loyal, strong, and more than capable of kicking ass. The next book in the series, The Spider, due for release in December, is a prequel to the series that takes place 10 prior to where the series began in Spider’s Bite. The book promises a deeper look into how Gin became the Spider and her relationship her mentor, Fletcher Lane. Jennifer Estep says:
[…] there are also a lot of shout-outs, references, and Easter eggs to past events, characters, and places in the books for fans of the series. Readers will also get to see Gin “meet” some of the other characters for the first time in this book.
So this will be a great book for both die-hard readers of the series and those who are new to the series.
