Publication Date: 4/25/2017 Series: Elemental Assassin #16Rating: 5 Stars


 Official Blurb: 

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 ensnared me from the first page.  See what I did there?

Estep has quickly become over the last few years one of my “drop everything to read her books” author.  It’s the series I often have a countdown to on my phone for the next book.
These books are never dull and the plots are often hidden enough that I can’t even see what’s coming in the chapters ahead.

Snared is a little different in terms of the case she’s involved in because it’s not someone she loves in direct trouble. Well, there’s always trouble around Gin, but like I said, it’s not the usual kind.  When the little sister of a business acquaintance goes missing, Gin finds herself smack dab in the middle of The Circle’s crosshairs.  The fight is far from easy and the twists and turns of the “what is going to happen next?”s will leave readers on their seats.  Gin’s bloodthirsty revenge is always entertaining along with the banter of her loved ones.

Snared is enthralling and one of the best books of the series.
