Review: The Spider by Jennifer Estep

Cover for The Spider by Jennifer Estep

Title: The Spider

Author: Jennifer Estep

Series: Elemental Assassin #10

Pages: 401

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

With this book, we jump back in time to when Gin was around 20 and starting her career as the assassin “the Spider.”This was a wonderful book because we can see how much Gin has grown as an assassin. She isn’t an experienced assassin at this point and that shows. She makes mistakes and people get hurt. 

In this one we also see that Gin does regret some of her kills. She is a strong woman and a deadly assassin, but this book just reinforces that she still has feelings and regrets. I liked that we are getting to learn about some of her regrets and how she has dealt with the guilt of those actions. 

This book was also wonderful because we finally get to see Gin interacting and learning from Fletcher. Fletcher was a wonderful father figure for Gin and I really wish we could see more of these memories with him. Also, Finn definitely hasn’t changed since he was a kid. Still money hungry and obsessed with his looks. 

This was a wonderful prequel book that was filled with a lot of little easter eggs. I loved seeing the growth of Gin’s character throughout this book and how it has impacted her as an adult. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next for Gin.
