Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository What kind of assassin works pro bono?
It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most.
To the public, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker—Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists.
At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer . . . who is about to save her life.I'm getting fonder and fonder of buddy reads, I've been reading Elemental Assassin with my dear She-Wolf, Lee, and though we are so behind the series, experiencing Jennifer Estep's world and writing with her is such a blast!
Here's half of our new reading enterprise we call
SHE-WOLF READS: Gin Blanco is back! And I just have to say that this series keeps getting better and better. VENOM, the third book in Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series, didn’t let me down in terms of the action, the intrigue, and the romance. As usual there are two storylines that feed into each other in a very tightly knit, well-paced plot. One is the overall story arc of Gin and her quest to revenge her family’s murder and the other is the abuse and victimization of Roslyn Phillips by Elliot Slater. Gin takes on the challenge of helping Roslyn against Slater. The fact that she’ll have to get rid of Mab’s right hand man in the process, well, that’s just a perk. I think what I found most exciting about VENOM was the development in the overall storyline. Estep provides enough answers to satisfy curiosity while also giving readers new developments that whet your appetite for Gin’s ultimate vengeance. One of the complications Estep throws Gin’s way is a new member of the Ashland police force who brings Gin’s past right into her present. I am so looking forward to seeing how this relationship plays out – it’s complex and has the potential to be either devastating or life-affirming for Gin. Estep also gets Gin to make a major move against Mab, and, at the end of VENOM, I thought to myself, sh*t just got real.
BRAINE: Perfectly put, Lee! I am loving how with each book we get to know the other players in the series. Roslyn has been a recurring character and we know that her life as a Madame isn’t easy and VENOM really depicted the ugly side of her life. I would think she’d have more clout being the secret keeper of sorts of Ashland’s thugs but obviously she’s powerless like the rest of the town’s residents. As for the surprise character, my jaw dropped and I got so excited and couldn’t believe what I was reading when I got to that part! I started VENOM late into the night and I was so tempted to pull an all-nighter just to see if it’ll lead to confessions and revelations.

I absolutely loved the Historical Fiction duo of "Wolf Hall" and "Bring up the Dead Bodies"
Mantel does such a good job of giving us Thomas Cromwell's point of view.
Just finished an unusual and surprisingly good japanese crime novel called "The Devotion of Suspect X" If you like a novel with an excellent sting in the tail I can strongly recommend it.
