Venom by Jennifer Estep
published September 2010
#3 in the Elemental Assassin series
Gin Blanco is on a mission, she is planning her revenge against Mab Monroe, the woman who killed her family. When a friend of Gin is being stalked and terrorized by Mab's brutal enforcer she can't stay back. Gin feels responsible that Roslyn is trageted by the ruthless giant and will do everything to kill him.
Gin's private life is just as complicated, she finally gets the chance to meet her sister Bria but can't tell her who she really is. And there's a new man in Gin's life, Owen Grayson, who seems to be genuinely interested in her.
Will Gin be able to rescue Roslyn and will the new developments in her private life make her happy?
This is the first time that I read the first three books in a series and was so impressed by them that I reviewed them all. When I started with the first book in the Elemental Assassin series about two weeks ago I didn't think that I would come to love these books so much.
"Venom" was very entertaining and I had a lot of fun while reading it. Jennifer Estep's writing style made the book a joy to read and I was always excited to get to the next page of the book. The book fits seamlessly to the other two parts of the series so that I feel like I'm reading one big story instead of three small ones.
I loved learning more of Gin, Finn, Roslyn, Sophia and the others. I especially liked reading about the new developments between Gin and Owen, he's definitely an awesome guy and I hope that they will have a chance for a happy future. I also enjoyed how Gin dealt with Roslyn's stalker and that she cares about the people close to her. I love that you can trust in Gin and that she never backs down from a promise.
The scenes between Bria and Gin were fascinating and I hope that Bria will soon learn who Gin really is. I think Bria might be able to handle Gin's job as an assassin and I would be so happy to see them together as sisters.
I can't wait to get my hands on book #4 in the Elemental Assassin series and to read how Gin's plan for revenge and her private life will continue.
I like it because it's powerful and fits to the story.
Once again Jennifer Estep enthraled me with her engaging writing style, her likable, complex characters and a thrilling story. I can't get enough of this fascinating series and would recommend it to all readers who enjoy reading about unique and strong characters.
