Revew: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep
With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.
The thing is, I’m not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident—and that each unfortunate “coincidence” is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bulls-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy’s master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.
I believe this is one of my favorite Gin books. When Gin goes to take down the villain in this one she is in for the fight for her life. But she has to do it since that witch is going after her family. And nobody hurts her family. I like Owen in this one even though there is little of him in the book it shows that he really cares for Gin. Also it shows that Gin's family is there for her.
The consequences of the showdown through me. I think we'll see more about that in the next book. I keep hoping that things will settle down for Gin but I know that if they do I'll miss the action. I give this book 5 stars and I received it from Netgalley for a fair and honest review. And I am going to be anxiously waiting for the next one.
