The blood persimmon was old and sturdy, with lots of thick branches that would hold my weight. I’d always enjoyed climbing, no matter the surface or what I was scaling, and it was practically a job requirement for a thief, as it was often the most convenient...

Review: Spider’s Trap by Jennifer Estep

Review: Spider’s Trap by Jennifer Estep Spider’s Trap Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Note: due to the nature of the Elemental Assassin series, this review will have spoilers from previous books. It’s been a few weeks since Gin took down her latest nemesis, MMM, and reluctantly took over as the boss of Ashland’s seedy underworld. She’s mediating her first dispute, one between Dimitri Barkov and Luiz Ramos for the purchase of a coin-laundry business owned by Lorelei Parker. Bored with the squabbling, Gin notices something amiss with one of the waitstaff and realizes a bomb is set to go off during the meeting. Not one for sitting still...

Review: Fandemic by Jennifer Estep

Review: Fandemic by Jennifer Estep Fandemic Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Fandemic is the fifth novel in Ms. Estep’s wonderful Bigtime series.  If you love fun, exciting, quirky, colorful superhero type worlds, then you are seriously missing out if you haven’t picked up this series yet. Ms. Estep delivers another well written, joyously fun, and exciting novel in the Bigtime series.  We loved Piper!  She is a normal girl in a superhero world.  She loves following the superheroes, and cleverly figures out who some of them really are, but loyally and trustworthily keeps this highly prized information to herself.  It backfired on her when she confessed...

Review: Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Review: Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep Cold Burn of Magic Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Cold Burn of Magic is the debut novel in Ms. Estep’s new Black Blade young adult series.  Gikany and Una loved it!  This is a fabulous start to a great urban fantasy series.

Three Xs had been carved into a stone set into the short column that fronted the left side of the bridge. A clear warning. Another monster, this way comes. I paused in the middle of the bridge, just before I would cross over to the far...

ARC Review: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep

ARC Review: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep Black Widow Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Black Widow just blew me away. Not only does it have all the usual parts that make the Elemental Assassin series one on my favorites… tough as nails Gin, witty banter, the love of family and friends. But it has so much more than any of the prior titles. MMM is unlike any villain Gin has faced before. She is one that enjoys the games and her machinations. She tears Gin apart by attacking her family and friends with red tape and legal problems, something Gin doesn’t have the means to deal with, right away...

Review: Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep

Review: Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep Poison Promise Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Gin’s birthday is quickly approaching, and she doesn’t like it. Not only does she struggle with memories of her foster father Fletcher’s death, but bad things always seem to happen to those she cares about around her birthday. And as if on cue, Gin’s life starts to get messy, again. There is a new drug in town that is messing with Elementals, and one of Gin’s waitresses, Catalina Vasquez, seems to be caught in the middle. Not only that, but Gin’s little sister Bria is taking a personal interest in the case when one of...
