Audiobook Review: Web of Lies (Elemental Assassin #2) by Jennifer Estep

Audiobook Review: Web of Lies (Elemental Assassin #2) by Jennifer Estep

Web of Lies is the second installment in Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series.  You can check out my review of the first book in the series, Spider’s Bite HERE.  Web of Lies continues the story of Gin Blanco aka The Spider.   She might have just retired, but will she lay down while others get hurt? Estep weaved not only a great story, but an ongoing fantastic back story for this series.  The Elemental Assassin series is one that I… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin #1) by Jennifer Estep

Audiobook Review: Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin #1) by Jennifer Estep

Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep is the first book in her Elemental Assassin Series.  This Urban Fantasy is nonstop literary entertainment!  The first chapter had me completely captivated by Gin and her world.  I am pretty sure my friends and family thought I was avoiding them, but I promise I was wrapped up in Spider’s Bite! Estep doesn’t hold back and sugar coat any aspect of Gin’s life.   There was no glamorization of what an assassin’s life would be… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is her first book in the Outlander series.  It is normally tagged as Romance/Historical/Fantasy.  2 out of the 3 tags confuse the crap out of me and this might be one of the harder reviews I have ever had to write.  Seriously. Apparently, this review needs actual discussion points. So let me start with the writing.  There are many and it is entirely in first person.  800+ pages in first person is a lot.  That being… Read more »

Audio Book Review: Hunted (Iron Druid Chronicles #6) by Kevin Hearne

Audio Book Review: Hunted (Iron Druid Chronicles #6) by Kevin Hearne

I have to admit that after the last book I debated if I should continue the series or not.  I had some complaints about how one of my favorite characters, Atticus, was lacking in character development and although the stories are great…I wanted more!  Well, bitches, I got it in Hunted!  To me character development is critical in a series. Hearne wraps up a lot of loose ends in Hunted.  With high action and the array of characters I have… Read more »
