Audio Review: Web of Lies

Title: Web of Lies
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assassin #2
Release Date: May 5th 2010
Format: Audiobook
Source: Purchased
Buy: Amazon, BN

I'll start this review by saying that I am not an audiobook lover. I purchased book one (Spider's Bite) in this series as an audiobook and somehow fell in love. I'm almost certain it's how well the narrator channels the characters, I'm enjoying everything about it. I'll be purchasing the rest of the series in audiobook format as long as Lauren Fortgang is the narrator.

Gin Blanco returns in book two of the Elemental Assassin series, Web of Lies. Retired, she no longer is killing people for money, and is instead running the Pork Pit, a BBQ restaurant that her former handler owned. I wasn't sure what to expect this time around since book one left off where she went on vacation and was giving up her life of being an assassin. Though I should have known not to worry since trouble seems to follow Gin.

Two would be robbers attempt to steal the cash from her register one night and foolishly take one of her customers hostage. After that matter is resolved Gin is approached by a college girl that has someone attempting to kill her. Toss in some prostitutes, a new sexy love interest, and some crazy people with strong powers and you have a story that kept me wondering what the heck would happen next. I highly recommend this series if you're a fan of Urban Fantasy with a strong female main character.


  1. I have this one but it's been a while... I'll have to read it because I liked book 1 but I wonder if I'll have re read book 1 too. glad it's still good!

  2. Gargs. I still haven't read her. I don't even know why not. I have a couple of them now. I do love a good heroine. UF really puts out some amazing ones.

  3. LOVE this series! I'm glad you are too. Assassins are the best ;)

  4. YES!! I'm so glad this was another winner for you!! This another perfect match of author and narrator, but then again I really enjoy just about everything she narrates.
    Great review Lily!

  5. been meaning to rad this series, look really good. I think my problem with audio books is the fact that I read quicker then the narrator and it makes me fall asleep every time i try it lol

  6. Glad this one worked so well for you! I'm not an audiobook lover, but I'm certainly intrigued by this series and I'll go check it out! :)

  7. oh this series is just all kinds of bad assery and awesomeness!

  8. I love this series and the audiobooks come highly recommended. It's different right? The book comes alive when read right

    1. Yes! I've tried one or two audios before and couldn't focus, but these I have no issues with.
