    1. Not quite as good as its predecessorsComing off the high from Venom, I had a lot of high hopes for Tangled Threads, Book 4 of the Elemental Assassin series Unfortunately, it comes up a little short for me.Unlike the prior novels, where it kicks off with high action, this book definitely has a slower pace After taking care of Elliott Slater, Gin has sent Mab Monroe a message as the Spider of course , and Mab s listening She recruits another assassin, a damn good assassin, to come in and deal with [...]


    2. 3.25 girlfight StarsMy enjoyment of this book increase by about 25% from the rest of the series Reason 1 for that is that I stopped listening to the audio for this It s not that the narrator is bad, she is actually pretty okay But there is a ton of EVERYWHERE and since I m reading this I can eyeskim most of the rehashes and recaps of every little thing It feels like there is about 25 30 unnecessary pages of the stuff.The second reason is Owen I like him as the love interest He is new to dating a [...]


    3. Tangle Threads is the fourth book in Jennifer Estep s Elemental Assassin series She has created a no holds barred heroine with Gin Blanco, a former assassin called the Spider who wants revenge against the woman who destroyed her entire world when she was barely a teenager Gin is consumed by revenge to take down Mab Monroe, a powerful, psychotic woman who lives for terrorizing those who are weak Mab is known as a fire elemental, while Gin has all the elements at her disposal, but prefers to keep [...]


    4. I love Gin Yup, shoot me, but I can t not love a sarcastic, badass heroin who knows who and what she wants, especially if she s an assassin who kills and kicks ass whenever and wherever she wants So go go Gin, keep it up



    5. martinabookaholic.wordpress.cMeine Gedanken zum Buch Wie immer steigt man in das Buch mit einer spannenden Szene ein, in der es nicht berrascht, wenn gleich mal ein Zwerg gegrillt oder jemand Gin eine Falle stellt und sie tot sehen will Aber es w re nicht Gin Blanco, Ex Auftragskillerin mit dem Namen die Spinne, wenn sie keine Geduld h tte und den Braten gleich gerochen h tte Wie immer ist ihr Ziehbruder Finn an ihrer Seite und ich finde ihn einfach nur genial sympathisch, auch obwohl oder gerad [...]


    6. 3.5 Stars I m still enjoying the series, though not a lot happened in this book I love the characters and admire Gin s loyalty and love for her friends and sister So pleased that she is finally opening up and letting go of her insecurities.


    7. I almost dnf ed this because of the constant recaps, but instead I put it aside for a few weeks and then continued it The last 20 30% saved it somewhat, so 2,5 stars it is.



    8. Once upon a time, I d been a happy little girl with a mother and two sisters who had loved her But fate or destiny or even simply circumstance had turned me into a killer It was a choice that I d embraced and something that I d had to do in order to survive Things for assassin Gin Blanco is never dull Especially not since she declared war on Mab Monroe And things just got a lot complicated when Mab decides to hire an assassin to take out the Spider for her Because let s face it, Mab was never g [...]


    9. 3.5 stars out of 5 I m really looking forward to hearing the author in August at the When Words Collide conference.Gin is up against another assassin in Tangled Threads and is learning to navigate new abilities that she has finally managed to access Plus she s negotiating a new, potentially great relationship with Owen Grayson Now if only she could find a way to tell her long lost sister who she is.Once again, there is plenty of action, I like where the plot is going, we make good progress in ev [...]


    10. I really love this series It s just pure, unadulterated fun Can t wait for the battle that s building between Gin and her nemesis Gonna be EXPLOSIVE.



    11. Weekly buddy read with my fellow UF addicts at BBB.Dammit I was betting that this time Gin will go after Jonah MacAllister I just want to see him squirm and plead for his miserable life so much More so than I want to see Mab do the same Aside from not going according to my own prediction this book was pretty damn good Maybe a little bit less interesting than the previous one but still better than the first two There s a new Mab minion in town that s taken the place of the late Elliot Slater And [...]


    12. I feel like this series gets progressively better as Gin gathers her core group of friends family and as we get to know them A new assassin is in town and is after Gin, and our heroine continues on her quest to go after Mab There is a good amount of action, but my favorite part is the characters.


    13. SPOILERS This book was very fragmented compared to the others in the series The last quarter of the book finally comes to life, but for me, the repetition was so overdone that the book never really took off I saw it through to the end, but that had to do with the merit of the previous books than this one I admit to liking where she went with some of the relationships in the book but unfortunately, that was it The main strength of this series has been the cool elemental powers JE endows her hero [...]


    14. The long arc is interesting, action packed, progresses quickly and engenders compassion regarding some of the characters The romance makes nice in roads and Gin makes some strides dealing with her personal issues concerning being close to people and worthiness There is some movement with the situation with her sister.There was about 17 chapters devoted to just bringing the reader up to speed with the backstory and world building Perhaps I d be kind about this if I hadn t read this series back t [...]


    15. Gin Blanco has just declared war on her very dangerous enemy, the fire elemental, Mab Monroe It is a tactic that has pulled Gin into the spotlight, while she usually tries to stick to the shadows So it seems only right that Mab is not taking any of this lying down and has instead hired an assassin to dispose of the assassin Gin is being hunted by a woman with deadly electrical magic, so strong it rivals her own Ice and Stone powers And soon she finds that it is not just her in the firing line, b [...]


    16. How disappointing I don t usually do this, but I m going to have to pull out a half star Tangled Threads deserves of a 2.5 as opposed to a solid 3 star rating.Before I dive into my complaints which I will try to keep to a minimum , I want to point out what I enjoyed about the story I was pleased with the ending I m glad a certain secret is finally revealed along with the backstory regarding Fletcher s involvement I thought Finn s potential relationship was a cute idea There were several things [...]


    17. Favorite Quote Who the hell are you I gave him a cold, hard smile The bitch who s here to kill you The Elemental Assassin series hooked me with the first sentence in the first book, Spider s Bite My name is Gin, and I kill people.And I am happy to say, now that we are on to book four, this series is only getting better in my opinion Much of its appeal is the heroine Gin I ve gone on about her in previous reviews but I just can t help myself The combination of Gin being a calm, patient, cold bloo [...]


    18. I would stop reading this series if it weren t for the fact that Gin Blanco is an awesome heroine She is a cold blooded killer who can t help helping people who are in trouble She has a house that sounds like the coolest patchwork of a building ever She cooks to relax and she owns a restaurant that I want to eat at, like every weekend She has strong magic but she relies on her physical skills and only uses it when she has to Sometimes she gets beaten up and sometimes she has to run for cover Plu [...]


    19. The casting PS My main cast for Gin, in my head, is really Jennifer Garner Elektra Reason for using Crystal Reed Allison Argent is because of all the awesome gifs of her that fits perfect for these series PI like this series I ve read 4 books in 4 days, so that should say something itself The storyline is good, and it keeps the reader interested Keep the change, Gin, McCallister said in a smarmy, mocking voice Consider it an early Christmas present Aw, I drawled A whopping thirteen cents You re [...]


    20. Having come off her last battle, Gin is determined to make things harder for her nemesis, Mab Monroe Turns out Mab is wanting the same thing and has hired another assassin, Elektra, to kill Gind the Spider Unfortunately, innocent people are getting stuck in the middle and Gin s family has gotten larger causing her to take things slower I really enjoyed how things are developing in Gin s life even though they are getting much complicated With each battle, Gin learns and about her powers and I [...]


    21. 4 5 B Overall, as a fan of this series, I was satisfied after reading Tangled Threads I think that Ms Estep did a good job and delivered a solid installment However, as a reader, the I thought about this book, the I had issues with it _ I m not going to go too much into the details of the storylines or the characters because I ve gone through it in the previous reviews As a fan, I was satisfied because I enjoyed the story that was told it was interesting, fast paced, action packed and a nice c [...]


    22. Squee Oh yes Another installment of this great series And since I know not everyone is caught up to this point or are just starting the series I will TRY to spoil nothing Oh, that is going to be so hard, but despite the sage words of Yoda do or do not, there is no try I will still try checks for miniature green aliens At least I won t spoil anything that isn t in the blurb above so at least be warned that far In this book like the others, there is a seemingly impossible task set upon Gin There i [...]


    23. 3 3.5 Sterne nicht so toll wie die Vorg ngerb nde, aber trotzdem gut Wie bei Band 2 konnte mich der Beginn schon nicht so packen und ich brauchte eine kleine Pause von dem Buch Gest rt haben mich auch die unz hligen Wiederholungen, die meinen Lesefluss normalerweise gut dosiert berhaupt nicht beeintr chtigen Aber dass dann sogar diese Wiederholungen im gleichen Buch wiederholt wurden, war dann ein wenig zu viel des Guten und nervig Zudem haben diese unn tigen Erkl rungen ein wenig Tempo aus der [...]


    24. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsI ve been barreling through this series like a woman on a mission I know that I say this in every review that I write for Jennifer Estep s books but it really is worth repeating these books are the bomb The writing is out of this world outstanding, Lauren Fortgang s narration is mesmerizing and the characters Oh My God I Gin, Owen, Finn, Sophia Jo Jo In this installment we have the showdown to end all showdowns I m talking assassin vs assassin I mean no disrespect to the a [...]


    25. Actual rating 2 going on 3Ok, the recaps and repetitions have to stop or I ll just give up on this series I m actually beginning to doubt whether someone edits these books The repetitions were a minor quibble in book 2, got quite annoying in book 3 but the whole thing becomes downright ridiculous in Tangled Threads So many phrases, names and events are repeatedly mentioned it felt like reading the same chapter yes, chapter, not book over and over again Yes, we got this Gin is the assassin the sp [...]


    26. 4.5 StarsGin Blanco, a.k.a the Spider, isn t the only skillful assassin in town Elek tra LaFleur has been hired by Mab Monroe to use her lethal electrical elemental magic to kill the Spider As if her motivation to save her own life wasn t enough to take her out, LaFleur has added Gin s younger sister Bria Coolidge to her hit list Gin will do whatever it takes to keep her sister alive but what would happen if the good detective learns that her sister she thought dead is still alive and is the ver [...]


    27. After spending the last 17 years in the shadows, Gin is now putting her work as an assassin in the spotlight Her plan to start unraveling the organization of crime boss Mab Monroe one death at a time Gin is killing Mab s minions and leaving her own personal symbol behind And Mab is getting mighty pissed off about it So much so, she has hired another big name assassin, Elektra, to take her out, once and for all Of course, Mab doesn t know that the Spider is really Gin Blanco Elektra wields the el [...]
