"My name is Gin, and I kill people. They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South--when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride..."--p.[4] of cover.

Reading the first line made me wary, but this book totally delivers..including a genuinely kick-ass heroine. Not cutesy, not macho, not debilitatingly angst-ridden. Competent and thoroughly enjoyable.

Intriguing from the start...an urban fantasy series with a fresh approach. I am looking forward to reading more of the series and other works by this author.

At times, corny action and cheesy love scenes. But still enjoyable. A hook at the ending to keep readers interested in the next book.

Twisted, a little spooky and bloody (what can you expect with a main character being an assassin), but well written with great action and characters.

This is a great series by this author. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who enjoys reading the fantasy genre. First in the series.

"Pure strength is one thing, darling, whether it's magical or natural. It'll only get you so far. But how you use what you've been given- that's what really matters. When you figure that out, ain't nobody going to be able to touch you. Not even me or Mab Monroe."

"Death was a release, in so many ways. An end to suffering. An escape to something else. What that something else was, I didn't know. Maybe heaven. Maybe hell. Maybe nothing at all. But I doubted it could be any worse than some of the things I'd seen and done in my lifetime."
