Review of Spider's Bite By Jennifer Estep

Spider's Bite
Jennifer Estep
Simon & Schuster
432 pages

Spider’s Bite is the first book in a new urban fantasy series starring Gin Blanco an assassin known as The Spider.
Jennifer gives us a great story line for her new series, which takes place in a fictitious southern town where a focal point is the barbeque joint known as The Pork Pitt. She gives us memorable characters and the evilest of evil doers some with elemental powers over air, stone, fire or water. Her protagonist Gin is an extremely complicated and likeable character and in the first novel you find out all the elements in her life that created what she is today, her co-star in this novel is police detective Donavan Caine who has conflicting feelings for Gin and with good reason. He’s a lone good wolf in a department full of crooked cops. Her supporting cast of characters are all extremely well developed and interesting. Her dialogue is witty, edgy and a little raw but necessary to support the feel of the story. She paints her scenes of dirty downtown and gritty nightclubs with vivid detail.
Spider’s Bite is an urban fantasy/paranormal novel with romantic tendencies. This novel would appeal to all lovers of dark paranormal romance, urban fantasy or anyone just looking for a witty gritty edge of your seat fantasy novel.
