Blurb from Goodreads:
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.
My name is Gin, and I kill people. It’s something I've been doing for years as the assassin called Spider, but now, it’s turned into a necessity on my part just to survive all the lowlifes in Ashland who are gunning for me. The underworld is still in turmoil, and I seem to be on everyone’s hit list these days.
To add to Gin’s problems, her lover Owen’s ex is in town. Salina is back in Ashland to reclaim an old family legacy—and she thinks that Owen is hers for the taking. Also in the mix is Phillip Kincaid, a casino owner and all-around shady character who has a mysterious connection to both Owen and Salina.
Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but there’s more to her than meets the eye. Her water elemental magic makes her a dangerous enemy—and someone who can go toe-to-toe with Gin’s Ice and Stone power. But Gin is determined to get to the bottom of Salina’s deadly scheme, even though it just might cost her everything…including Owen.
Why am I waiting for it?
Oh my God *hyperventilates* I freaking love this series! Gin is such a kick-ass heroine...she's an assassin, though she has 'retired' but will still do pro-bono work when she sees someone who really needs killing! Gin is just awesome. Period. She has elemental magic, strong control over Ice and Stone meaning she could just as easily flash-freeze a man to death as to bring a building down on top of him. Gin is a quirky, strong heroine who cooks like no-bodies business :)
Right, so I may or may not have already received an advanced readers copy of Widow's Web (I love you Jennifer Estep!!) but the restraint of not immediately diving into it is causing me physical pain!! I've had exams and several other books I need to read before I can dive head-first back into Gin's world. Oh lord, give me strength!
You know what I'm waiting on, leave me a comment about what you're waiting for and I'll get back to you!
