Spider's Revenge Review
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assasin #5
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Elemental Magic, Assasins, Vampires, Giants, Dwarves, Bounty Hunters.
Spider's Revenge is practically an arc finale as finally, Gin Blanco will get to kill Mab Monroe. But the stories gets some twists which bothered me early on as Gin embarked in a "solo" mission of killing Mab which practically failed (we can read several times that Fletcher Lane will surely be disappointed with her if he was still alive). She barely escapes but was able to fallback and planned the next attack with her companions.
Another twist that came out was involvement of bounty hunters which made this book so exciting which will make this book the most action packed book ever written by Jennifer Estep. Before the final showdown, Gin was able to get some assistance from his companion as they clear the area from any distraction setting up the final match between Gin and Mab.
A lot of revelations are being unveiled: Bria Coolidge has finally realized who Gin really was; Owen Grayson finally asserted his intentions to Gin and her reciprocating his love and revealed her true feeling to him and finally Jojo Devereaux's talk that Gin's magic will only get stronger as she goes on.
I initially though that this will be final book yet I learned that there will be two to three more books in the series and rumors that an official novella will be released to serve as a "transitional prequel" to the newest arc in the series.
