Misty’s Review of SPIDER’S BITE

Spider’s Bite is book 1 in the Elemental Assassin series. I was captivated to the pages till I reached the end of the Book. This was a great start to this series.

Spider’s Bite is the story of Gin who is the Spider. The Spider is an assassin for hire to take care of the evil in Ashville. Gin is a serious bad ass when she needs to be but she also has a soft side to her. Gin uses her fighting skills and her elemental powers to protect.

Gin is a Stone elemental with a secondary element of ice. It is awesome how she can hear the stones. It is also awesome that she is such a skilled assassin. Her secondary element is not as strong as her main element but she is learning to strengthen it up.

To find out more about Gin and what happens go grab your copy of Spider’s Bite.

I give Spider’s Bite 5 stars. Gin became my favorite character because she is strong, independent and isn’t afraid to ask for help when she needs it. She is a likeable character. I would recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormals.
