FINALLY! The story that we have all been waiting for, Gins! I have been wondering how and why Gin became the way she was. Now the reader sees the young, naïve Gin during her training with the Fletcher Lane, aka The Tin Man. Another great part about this installment is the reader gets to enjoy having Fletcher there all the time instead of the brief flashbacks that normally is interjected into each book.

The Spider takes place 10 years before Spiders Bite and is Gins first solo mission. I dont want to give any spoilers but Gin learns the hard way that mixing business with pleasure will only lead to complications. Fletcher lets her learn on her own even though it might mean she will end up hurt or worse, dead. An interesting aspect in this book is how Gin comes across several secondary characters, including a few characters that become more prominent as the series goes on, not knowing that their paths will cross again.

I really want to go back and re-read this series now that I am armed with all this information. It helped me understand a lot of frustrating traits about Gin. This is a must read for all Elemental Assassin fans and for those that are new to this series, this would be the perfect starting point.

While I loved reading this backstory on Gin, I didn't feel like it deserved a whole book. However, since Estep gives us two or three Gin books a year instead of only one, I'm not going to grip too much because a little Gin is better than none! It was definitely well worth reading even if the overall storyline did not progress a lot.
