Editorial Reviews


"The 14th title in the Elemental Assassin series is a fast, furious, and entertaining romp in an intriguing... paranormal world." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Estep's street-smart characters, lively narrative, and ever-evolving stories keep this series alive and kicking." (Library Journal on Bitter Bite)

"This installment’s plot is intriguing...setting the stage for the next act in the series." (Publishers Weekly on Bitter Bite)

“Gin Blanco is one of the most intriguing heroines on the scene. . . . If you have not gotten on the Gin bandwagon yet, do so today!” (—RT Book Reviews)

"Bodies litter the pages of this first entry in Estep's engrossing Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series. . . . Urban fantasy fans will love it." (--Publishers Weekly on Spider's Bite)

“This series kicked off with a bang, and the action hasn’t let up since.” (—Fresh Fiction)

"Watch out world, here comes Gin Blanco. Funny, smart, and dead sexy." (-- Lilith Saintcrow, author of Redemption Alley )

"A raw, gritty, and compelling walk on the wild side, one that had me hooked from the first page." (-- Nalini Singh, New York Times bestselling author )

"When it comes to work, Estep's newest heroine is brutally efficient and very pragmatic, which gives the new Elemental Assassin series plenty of bite. Shades of gray rule in this world where magic and murder are all too commonplace. The gritty tone of this series gives Estep a chance to walk on the darker side. Kudos to her for the knife-edged suspense!" (—Romantic Times)

Finnegan Lane has been the most dependable character in Jennifer Estep’s ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN series. The rest of the cast have all had temporary moments of weakness, or lapses in judgment, even Gin Blanco. I’m not saying that he’s perfect because he’s not, but he’s never infuriated me to the point of wishing that he was next on the Spider’s hit list. I can’t say the same of other linchpin secondaries like Owen or Bria. So, he was definitely due, and BITTER BITE delivered his misadventure in style along with a new plot arc that I can’t wait to see bloom!

I have no idea how many installments the author originally had planned because over the course of fourteen books many story lines have reached their conclusions, and yet Estep has somehow managed to not only keep the ball rolling, but also at a pretty decent clip. What I mean by that is I enjoyed reading this volume as much as the first. The high levels of action, entertainment, mystery and feels haven’t dropped in the least! This title tied into previous threads involving Mab Monroe, Fletcher and Eira Snow while weaving another biggie that I can’t comment on because I like to keep it spoiler-free.

Gin underwent a bit of a transformation too; she relied on her Stone and Ice magic more than her knives in this novel which is unusual for her. She tends to be a physical fighter, and even though she does tap in to her Elemental juju regularly, it was nice seeing her fully embrace it. I thought that her reaction to Finn’s long-lost relative was mature, and aside from getting a little emotional (understandable), Blanco dealt with the situation like a champ. There were flashbacks of her and Lane’s childhood together too which I loved.

Well let me start this one off with a basic observation, I loved the book. Stayed up late to finish it and loved the ending. OK, got that out of the way because many times when I list things about a book that I might not have liked it gives some folks the impression that I did not like the book, not true here in the least.

So, what did I not like? I always have problems with plots that seem to take familiar characters and turn them into somebody else which is what this did with Finn. This was not way out in the fringe since it was within the realm of reality for someone to act like this but I just did not feel it.

So, something I did like? Plot twists, I kept thinking, this is the end but something would happen and the story keeps moving. I have no problem with "predictable" many times since it kind of goes with my paragraph above but there were several times that things went off in an unseen direction, I loved it.

Something I did not like again? A situation that is so obvious but for reasons to move the plot along is ignored and when it happens it is like "SURPRISE" when it really wasn't ...... at all.

What I ALWAYS like? Gin, she is the heart of these books and she is the definition of "conflicted" since she manages to be a very believable assassin while having a heart of gold, Jennifer Estep has managed to create a unique character and make her someone that leaves bodies stacked in her wake and you still love her. Nice job since that requires some real creative writing skills. kudos.

Bottom Line: This is a Elemental Assassin book, the fact that I still love to read them after 14 books (yes I have read all but 1) says a lot.

I always thoroughly enjoy each new installment in the Elemental Assassin series as every book provides a solid block of action packed entertainment, and great character dynamics. That being said some books shine more than others, and others just aren't quite as bright. BITTER BITE, while very good in its own right and full of intense action and really impactful character dynamics, I found the latter to be rather frustrating. While Gin's love life has been up and down and back up again throughout the series, the one constant has been the bond between her and Finn. While foster siblings, they have always been thicker than any blood relation. And yet, at the first sign of a blood relative to Finn he loses his head and turns against Gin. While this made for a very intense book, it didn't sit right with me. I'm sure that was the point and I commend the author for being able to play with my emotions so much. But the fact remains this turmoil in an area I considered to be an unbreakable bond lessened my enjoyment of the book. That being said, hopefully future books will be able to rebuild my faith in Finn, but it's not going to be an easy road.

Disappointment in Finn aside, this was one heck of an intense read. I feel like I say this every time I review a new Elemental Assassin book, but somehow Jennifer Estep was able to yet again top her previous villian with the current one. I really don't know how she does it. By sheer logic they should have a "been there done that" or just too over the top feeling by now as they've had to continually outdo the previous. And yet, that's the furthest thing from the case, as each new villain brings a new angle of threat and keeps me practically biting my nails off to see how Gin and co will survive the latest catastrophe.
