Black Widow (Elemental Assassin #12) by Jennifer Estep (Review + Playlist)


There’s nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill—and my murder to plan.

With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.

The thing is, I’m not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident—and that each unfortunate “coincidence” is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bulls-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy’s master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.

My Review:

One thing you need to know about Jennifer Estep and this series is that it only gets better with every new book. I never expected that with each new installment of Elemental Assassin I would continue to get surprised, petrified and so angry, but Black Widow is, for a 12th book in the series, still fresh and full of action, great banter and fight scenes and this time, the villain is more cunning than ever.
After Mab Monroe, I didnt think Gin would have to face a someone worse, but I was wronf. M.M. Monroe is depraved, wicked smart and unpredictable and she almost got the drop on Gin but as we know our favorite assassin, she never goes down without a fight. I loved seeing Gin and Owen together again, they are amazing together, after everything they have been together, their trust and faith in each other is astounding. My favorite, Finn, is still prissy and funny and this series wouldnt be this good without him. Of course, I always love reading about Sophia, Xavier, Bria and Philip. The writing the storytelling and the world building are still amazing, I love the setting of this series, I especially love Pork Pit.
I am curious how will things fall into place after the events of this book so I am eagerly awaiting the next book. I know Gin wont let me down nor Ms. Estep. 


I hear your voice in my sleep at nightHard to resist temptation
'Cause something strange has come over me
And now I can’t get over you
No, I just can’t get over you

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest nights

I can see
When you stay low nothing happens
Does it feel right?
Late at night
Things I thought I put behind me
Haunt my mind
I just know there's no escape
Now once it sets its eyes on you
But I won't run,
Have to stare it in the eye
Stand my ground, I won't give in
No more denying, I've got to face it
Won't close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don't make it, someone else will
Stand my ground

Hard-hearted don't worry I'm ready for a fight.
Unnerved, the nerve, you're nervous, nervous that I'm right.
Hard-hearted don't worry I'm ready for a fight.
Unnerved, the nerve, you're nervous, nervous that I'm right.

Now with your cause and affection on my mind,
I won't yield, throw caution into the blaze.
Oh, now you know you know it now.
And so, now you know you know it now.

At the curtain’s call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl
So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made
Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'll getcha, I'll getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha
