The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep’s New York Times andUSA Today bestselling Elemental Assassin series—“an extraordinary series… One of the most intriguing heroines in the genre” (Romantic Times Book Reviews).
Keep your friends close but your enemies within stabbing distance.
One important lesson I’ve learned in the assassination business is that to be the best you have to roll with the punches. Now that I’m queen of Ashland’s underworld—by default, not by choice—a lot more punches are being thrown my way. But I suppose that’s the price of victory for taking down some of the underworld’s top dogs. Good thing I have my Ice and Stone magic to help me survive my volatile new position. Just when I think things are finally settling down, someone tries to murder me during a hush-hush underworld meeting. But the real surprise is how strangely familiar my shadowy assailant seems to be.
My job is to maintain order among killers, crooks, and thieves, and soon I’m embroiled in a bloody game where the ability to keep secrets could be the greatest superpower of all. My enemies have all sharpened their knives and laid their traps, waiting for me to fall. But this Spider weaves her own webs of death…

Spider's Trap begins when Gin is having some issues being the leader of the Underworld. Things aren't going according to her plan, and when it seems like someone is out to kill her again, but willing to take out her friends, she must figure it out before it is too late. However, Gin will need more help then normal, and she may end up losing someone she loves if she doesn't get things together quickly. especially if she isn't actually the target.
This book was good. It seemed kind of typical someone from Gin's past paying her a visit, and trying to kill her. But this one had a little bit of a twist. And towards the end I was in tears. I couldn't believe what happened. It about drove me nuts. Then the actually ending was a major surprise, and set up the next book really well. I'm really looking forward to the next one now.
The only thing I wish would happen is some growth between Gin and Owen. I wish their relationship would change to something more some how. Other then that this one was awesome! Now, I'm super excited for the next one.
