If you don’t know Gin “the Spider” Blanco, you don’t know dangerous female heroines.
Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web…
Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.
My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.
A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I’m used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy—one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.
Warning! Mild spoilers below.
Snared begins with Gin Blanco aka “The Spider” investigating another member from the mysterious group called the Circle. However, Gin’s search is put on hold when she’s asked for a favor from a friend. What starts off with a search for a missing sisters soon becomes a rescue mission when it turns out that there’s a serial killer loose. Not to mention that it soon becomes obvious that someone is slowly leading Gin into a web where she’ll have to escape before she gets tangled up and can’t escape.
Overall, Snared was another great addition to the Elemental Assassin series. Not only do we get more information about the Circle but we also get revelations from one of its members who was once close to Eira Snow, Gin’s mother. As always, Jennifer Estep has left fans wanting to learn more and what’s next in the Elemental Assassin series.
