Barnes & Noble:

The sixteenth book in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls, “An extraordinary series…[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre.”

If you don’t know Gin “the Spider” Blanco, you don’t know dangerous female heroines.

Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web…

Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.

My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.

A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I’m used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy—one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.
Snared (Elemental Assassin)Snared by Jennifer Estep

Snared, Estep always picks the greatest reflections of her work for her titles. Gin definitely finds herself Snared by the very group she is hunting…the elusive Circle.

One of her friend/business acquaintance’s sister is missing and it is up to Gin to find her before her clock runs out. Gin's search has her knocking on doors that have Circle ties and she soon discovers she’s been pulled into circle business once again.

This series is like one of those deep fried bloomin' onion, with each layer Estep unpeels, you find yourself indulging deeper into the simple joy of it. SNARED is packed full of revelations, with lots of new and exciting, undiscovered depths to characters we thought we knew.

What can I say, Estep is a go to author. Bringing amazing fictional characters that become as familiar as family members. With each installment, catching us up with what's going on in their lives...of course there is way more action, magic and mayhem then most of us will see in a lifetime but we can live vicariously through their tales.

I received this arc copy of Snared from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books. This is my honest and voluntary review. Snared is set for publication April 25, 2017.
