Review - Spider's Trap by Jennifer Estep

Title: Spider’s Trap
Series: Elemental Assassin #13
Author: Jennifer Estep
Release Date: July 28, 2015

The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Elemental Assassin series—“an extraordinary series… One of the most intriguing heroines in the genre” (Romantic Times Book Reviews). 

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…

There aren't many negative things that I can say about a paranormal book. I think they are fantastic but this one really hit it out of the ball park. From page one, I was sucked into this wild world - one I had never seen created by another author. 

Spider's Trap was brilliant, heart stopping, laugh inducing, swoon worthy and completely action packed. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, Jennifer Estep switched things up and I was floored. 

This series can be read as standalone books - I did with this one, and was able to completely follow along. I will, however, go back and read the rest simply because I enjoyed this book so much!
