Here it isthe final showdown with Mab Monroe. Gin has been waiting for this moment since she was thirteen and her family was slaughtered by Mab. Us readers have been waiting anxiously for this moment too! She has trained relentlessly and owes it to everyone she loves to end Mabs life. But, one thing is different. Gin is not the same hard core assassin. She has softened and it is affecting her job. She misses her target. Thats right, Gin misses killing Mab with her crossbow and now Mab knows who she is and who her loved ones are. Gin and Owen work together to get everyone to safety but they know that they dont have long. Mab has put a bounty on Gin and Brias head and every bounty hunter and assassin has gathered to claim them. One pair of assassins, Gentry and Sydney, reminds Gin of herself and Fletcher. When she is cornered by them Gin gets the upper hand but decides to let them go hoping that she doesnt regret it. When Gentry kidnaps Bria, Gin regrets her decision but hopes deep down that Bria wont be harmed before Gin can get to her.

Own and Gins relationship is truly tested in Spiders Revenge. Gin comes to terms with the fact that someone can actually love her even with her alternate career and lifestyle. She also learns that what she does affects everyone that she knows and there are consequences for some of her actions. Bria is also coming to terms with what her older sister has is but the family bond is strong and she accepts it. Finn seems to be slowing down on the skirt chasing because he has an eye for Bria but Bria will have nothing to do with him.

I will stop there with everything because I dont want to give away many details of the book. It is non-stop action as always. Right away in the beginning we are thrown into Gins attempt on Mab and everything rolls from there. All Esteps characters have evolved and I am curious to see what direction the next installment will take. I really enjoyed getting to know Sophia more. Here story is finally recounted and you just break inside for her! And of course it wouldnt be an Elemental Assassin book if you didnt add in a brownie recipe that made my mouth water. If you havent read this series yet, you should.
