Summary

The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep's New York Times and USA Today best-selling Elemental Assassin series.
Keep your friends close but your enemies within stabbing distance.
One important lesson I've learned in the assassination business is that to be the best, you have to roll with the punches. Now that I'm queen of Ashland's underworld - by default, not by choice - a lot more punches are being thrown my way. But I suppose that's the price of victory for taking down some of the underworld's top dogs. Good thing I have my Ice and Stone magic to help me survive my volatile new position. Just when I think things are finally settling down, someone tries to murder me during a hush-hush underworld meeting. But the real surprise is how strangely familiar my shadowy assailant seems to be.
My job is to maintain order among killers, crooks, and thieves, and soon I'm embroiled in a bloody game where the ability to keep secrets could be the greatest superpower of all. My enemies have all sharpened their knives and laid their traps, waiting for me to fall. But this Spider weaves her own webs of death.

It's like reading a scripted template.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. I feel like listening the exact same story, over and over. Like a scripted episode in a never ending story. Like "Perry Rhodan" or "Service de surveillance des planètes primitives" (french, can't find the english version)

What does Lauren Fortgang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nice work on the narrator's acting.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. I would wait for the Netflix release.

Any additional comments?

Gin Blanco is always running out of magic juice against opponents that have unlimited supplies. This is happening in every book. She is the waekest elemental and too dumb to learn. It feels like this series end in book 5 with Mab's death. After that, it's like reading the same story with the super- villain's name changing. As if the book is written by someone esle with a template, like Startrek.

good but could be better

I still don't know why with all of the people she has fought and killed she still fumbles with her powers like a new born. sad sad sad.... the author has a great story but no promise of her becoming stronger. hopefully on day we will get lucky and it will all come together.
