Waiting on Wednesday: Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

This week's pick comes from the very talented Jennifer Estep! If you enjoy great urban fantasy with a kick-butt heroine or you're a Kelly Armstrong or Rachel Vincent fan- you must try Estep's Elemental Assassin series! 

WARNING!!! This is #8 in the Elemental Assassin series and as such, will contain spoilers for the first 7 books, you've been warned! :)


Deadly Sting (Elemental Assassin #8)
by: Jennifer Estep
Release Date: March 26th/13.
Publisher: Pocket Books
Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
Red is definitely my color. Good thing, because in my line of work, I end up wearing it a lot.

Most people shy away from blood, but for an assassin like me — Gin Blanco, aka the Spider — it’s just part of the job. Still, it would be nice to get a night off, especially when I’m attending the biggest gala event of the summer at Briartop, Ashland’s fanciest art museum. But it’s just not meant to be. For this exhibition of my late nemesis’ priceless possessions is not only the place to be seen, but the place to be robbed and taken hostage at gunpoint as well. No sooner did I get my champagne than a bunch of the unluckiest thieves ever burst into the museum and started looting the place.

Unlucky why? Because I brought along a couple of knives in addition to my killer dress. Add these to my Ice and Stone magic, and nothing makes me happier than showing the bad guys why red really is my color.

What books are you waiting on this week?

Happy Reading!!!
