Venom (Elemental Assassin, #3) by Jennifer Estep


Lisarenee | 7659 comments Roslyn is in trouble and the "Spider" once again must come out of retirement. Feeling responsible for bringing Elliot into Roslyn's life when she borrowed the attire of one of Roslyn's "girls", Gin feel obligated to help her out of a bad situation.

Letting herself be beaten to keep her cover, the story starts on a very violent note and proves just how strong a person Gin is. Air Elementals sure come in handy for healing. Wish there truly were some in existence.

In this book we get to see Gin's insecurities. Donovan's rejection truly did affect her. But as always you either accept her the way she is or move on. She makes no excuses for what she's done and as brooding about the past never did anyone any good why should she?

Bria was a fun addition to the story. Finally we have some clue as to what happened to Gin's long lost sister. Still not sure how she got away or how she ended up in a different town so there is still some mystery surrounding her disappearance.

Gin's reluctance to tell her sister who she is unexpected. Her inner struggle as to whether she can trust her sister or be accepted by her is fun. It appears one opinion does matter to Gin and that's Bria's.

Finding out that Mab thought Bria was the one with Stone Magic was a fun twist. Was glad we finally found out the reason why Gin's family was murdered.


Lisarenee | 7659 comments Almost forgot. I love and approve of Owen. Seems like things could work out. Here's hoping.

Hmm, another quiet one haha.


Geri | 2045 comments I’d like to join! I have the book and have been wanting to read it for awhile. I’ll be back later.


Shelby (stang_lee) | 1175 comments I'm adding myself into this mix so hopefully I don't forget. This has been on my shelf for ages.

Geri | 2045 comments Will this buddy read still be starting on Monday? I own the book. So I can start this when everyone else can!


Eldarwen | 10376 comments Mod
I was actually thinking about starting it tomorrow because I'll probably do a part of it on audio again while cleaning out my closet. I find the narrator's voice soothing to work to while still keeping my focus on the story.

Geri | 2045 comments I agree. I listened to the first 2 on audio, and thought the narrator was good. OK, I’ll start Monday!


Eldarwen | 10376 comments Mod
Cool!

I'll start today, to get a bit of a head-start since I'll be sneak-reading something else at work hehe. That way I'm not going to fall too far behind during the week :-)
