Home Jennifer Estep Widow’s Web. Home. I wouldn’t think an assassin like you would indulge in such a relationship-any relationship, really. But the two of you seem quite taken with each other. Kincaid’s voice was smooth, but his tone darkened when he said Owen’s name, as though it left a bitter taste in his mouth. I’d thought as much, given the distinctive feel of the water elemental’s magic-magic that had felt exactly like the power that Salina had subtly given off when I’d shaken her hand at Underwood’s. At the restaurant, I’d thought that perhaps Salina was a weak Ice elemental or gifted in some subset, like water.

Jennifer Estep - Urban Fantasy Author . The Elemental Assassin books focus on Gin Blanco, an assassin codenamed the Spider who can control the elements of Ice and Stone. Books seven through nine, Widow’s Web to Heart of Venom make up another story arc regarding Gin and Owen’s relationship, and some questions raised in those books about a possible character that are answered in Poison Promise and Black Widow, books and in the series.

The seventh book in the hugely popular Elemental Assassin series by New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Estep—Gin Blanco is back and ready for action.I used to murder people for money, but lately it’s become more of a survival technique. Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town anyway. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back, she thinks he’s hers for the taking. Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.
There was something I felt that was missing from this series and I really couldn’t put my finger on it until this book. I like it was that I felt most of time the characters were 2 dimensional. There is a problem….let’s go kill the people causing it. Oh…you just showed up covered in blood and probably killed some people, that’s fine I’ll just clean you up and accept it as it. It was like there were only the emotions on the surface for most of the characters and nothing was really very complex. Until now.

Most of the other books fell just a little flat for me like a picture drawn in 2D. Until this book where I felt like Gin and Owen especially became 3D characters and incredibly more detailed and interesting.

Normally I don’t love the addition of emotional angst to my assassin story. BUT in this case I’ll let it pass because the plot needed it to make sense and it made the villain a lot more interesting.

Owen has been perfect up until now. Perfectly understanding, Perfectly patient, perfectly giving, perfect…perfect…perfect. Honestly I was a little bored with him. Gin runs off and almost get herself killed he is there for her. Gin runs off and does something maybe a little stupid Owen totally understands doesn’t get mad and just hugs her. Gin ‘talks’ with her former booty call guy Donovan to hash out her feeling and he is completely patient understanding and not even really upset….You get my point right.

Owen has a slightly skewed morality. He is completely fine with Gin’s extracurricular activities and since he has feelings for her he is totally accepting. But what happens when someone he used to love comes into the picture and she also has some deadly skills and Owen is completely accepting of her too??? How well does our assassin handle that?

Salina was Owen’s first love and he was going to marry her until she disappeared. Owen lived with that guilt for 15 years so his instinct is to do everything he can to make up for it and protect that woman now.

Gin has never really had a real romantic relationship and so this is all a struggle for her. Plus is doesn’t help that Salina is a manipulative BeOtCh and is just out to steal her man. Also, she might be slightly crazy and is killing everyone she deems an enemy or threat. Guess who made it onto that list. Yep Gin…she finds all the crazy people.

Still I really liked the plot of this one. It was intense in places and I worried how Gin and Salina going up against each other was going to affect her relationship with Owen. How Gin’s tendency to do whatever she wants and not caring about what others said or think was going to play when it didn’t really line up with what the man she loves wanted.

Finally there was some depth to the characters and the major plot point wasn’t some raping, sadistic bastard. Finally Gin’s relationship wasn’t all roses and sunshine all the time. Finally there was the something more I was looking for.
I've followed this series from the start. I have truly enjoyed it, and have readily accepted how easily Gin Blanco seems, somewhere early on in each book, gets caught up in some silly dilemma that any one, especially a skilled assassin as she, could see coming a mile away. I believe it is fair to say that each volume of the series fits a formula, and this entry fits that formula. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There is no point in going over the particulars, since "Widow's Web" follows the formula quite well. JE ends with Gin in angst, but with an improved relationship to her sister and some unexpected changes in her relationships to some other characters that are,in general, positive. Estep writes series for the most part, and she does well with character and relationship development.
I gave the book only three stars since,over all, it clings to said formula a bit too tightly. I must admit that one part of the formula that I do love about it is the visceral joy I get from Estep's writing comes from her action scenes. I swear I can feel punches landing, bones breaking, blades slicing through flesh, and I can see and feel blood and other bodily fluids spurting, oozing and flowing, as well as the urgent lethality of many of so many of those wounds. That is what keeps me reading each book,even when "THE FORMULA" is heavily guiding the action.
Now to some nitpicking in which I believe I must indulge. The first point I have already flogged; the somewhat overbearing presence of the formula. The other is truly petty, really small, but it just bugs me, so, here it is. The hero of the series runs a bbq restaurant,one of those kind of run down places that looks smarmy, but serves such great food it just keeps you coming back. Our hero is named GIN Blanco and she always refers to the place as her "gin joint." AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!! I get it! Her name is Gin and she likes to drink gin. Cute. But her "joint" doesn't even serve booze! If my memory serves, the phrase dates back to the days of prohibition. It referred to a speakeasy where illegal booze, often called, "bathtub gin," because of the way it was distilled, with stills dripping their truly awful production literally into real bathtubs. Okay,use the damn pun once in a while, here or there, but not every time she refers to the place!
I told you I was nitpicking and I meant it. No excuses, no explanations, I don't even know why it bugs me, but it does. I know this admission really is whacked, but I feel so much better owning up to it. Call me a pedant and/or a nutcase; it's MY nit and I have now picked it. Thanks for listening. I do feel so much better.
Oh yeah, the book. If you are already a fan of the series, read it because events critical to the story arc and to character and relationship do occur. If you have heard about the series and want in, don't start with this entry. It's number eight,I believe, but you'll not get the full importance of much of what happens in terms of the story arc and the relationships between many of the characters. It really is a good series, so start at the beginning and you'll not only get caught up in a good, well written series,you may find your own nits to pick...
