will she ever get better at using her powers
Any additional comments?
I don't think I will be getting the next book. I'm starting to get tired of the filler and reiterating of who she is and I'm stunned on the fact of her powers and how she beat Mab Monroe who was the st strongest elemental in 500 years and she is now the strongest and has trouble with everyone else that was scared of Mab. The stories are great except the filler just the fights with the bosses could be more believable and it would be nice to see her learn more about her magic and actually use her full potential besides one time out of what 12 books now.

The Spider doing her thing
Another action packed installment of the Elemental Assassin. It's Gin's Birthday book, Happy Birthday Genevieve Snow!
I love Lauren Fortengang's interpretation of the Spider so I had preordered this book at audible. Definitely a wise decision if I may say so. This audiobook was all that I had hoped it would be. I had been waiting for this enemy for awhile and this book resolved many issues and paved the way for a new war.
Someone is dealing drugs, a new kind of drug called Burn, and it is worse than anything Ashland and South town had seen in a long time. When the Pork Pit waitress, Catalina, was accosted by her friend and forced to sell drugs, Gin stepped in to help Catalina. Of course, this inserted the Spider into Ashland's underworld, and again forcing her to clean up the mess the Ashland PD couldn't.
What I liked about this book was that Gin finally reached a comfortable place in her tenous relationship with Bria, her baby sister. Bria is a judgmental, self righteous cop (the female Donovan Caine) and everything was just black and white with her. In this book she finally saw the shaded areas Gin lived in and she was finally humbled (or smacked her off her high horse).
My favorite part was the fact that the focus of this book was on the Spider and that is when Gin is at her best--Kicking Ashland underworld butt. Everyone connected to Gin makes an appearance and we finally get to meet MM Monroe. It's sad but I am excited because MM is definitely her mother's daughter. There is another surprise to MM Monroe too. I am excited for where this series is going.
