“ARC given for an honest review”

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.

First Sentences

It was torture. Watching your mortal enemy get everything she’d ever wanted was torture, pure and simple.

My Thoughts

Overall I did enjoy reading Black Widow. It was well written and I loved Gin and Owen. I loved the fantasy side of things and it was a thrilling read. Although, this was the first of the Elemental Assassins series that I’ve read so I was quite confused with the overall storyline. I would have wished that I read the previous books before digging my teeth into this one.
