Poison Promise (Elemental Assassin #11) by Jennifer Estep
In book eleven of her New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series, author Jennifer Estep continues “one of the best urban fantasy series going on the market” (Fresh Fiction).
Gin Blanco is hard-nosed, sexy, and lethal. Nicknamed “The Spider,” she’s a stone elemental assassin who brings her unique mix of magic and tact to every assignment, no matter the target.
There’s a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name “Burn” sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight.
This time Gin Blanco goes up against the drug lord of Ashland. She thinks that she made the choice to take him on but when all is said and done she finds she has been manipulated. By who? A new version of an old enemy.
I felt like Gin as the book ended. I was really let down. The battle was exciting, Gin had a fight for her life and in the end she found that she set up a bigger enemy. While I liked the story I did wonder if we were about to go back to the beginning and see a replay of the first few books. I guess I will find out when book 12 comes out.
Pocket Books published Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep in 2014.
I received an ARC of Poison Promise from Netgalley.
