Book 1, Elemental Assassin - An Elemental Assassin Book

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


After Gin’s family was murdered by a Fire elemental when she was thirteen, she lived on the streets and eventually became an assassin to survive. Now, Gin is given an assignment by her handler to rub out an Ashland businessman, but it turns out to be a trap. After Gin’s handler is brutally murdered, she teams up with the sexy detective investigating the case to figure out who double-crossed her and why. Only one thing is for sure —Gin has no qualms about killing her way to the top of the conspiracy.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 14, 2009 – Bodies litter the pages of this first entry in Estep s engrossing Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series. In the corrupt Southern metropolis of Ashland, weather witches mingle with vampires, giants, and dwarves. A mysterious client hires assassin Gin Blanco, known as the Spider, to murder a whistle-blowing financial officer named Gordon Giles. Then the client attempts a double cross and brutally kills Gin s mentor. Now Gin, a stone elemental with a hard-boiled attitude, a closely guarded heart, and a penchant for throwing knives, has to join forces with one of the few honest cops in Ashland, sexy detective Donovan Caine, who hates her for killing his partner. Fans of Estep s humorous paranormal romances (Jinx; Hot Mama) may be taken aback by the gritty violence and steamy sex, but urban fantasy fans will love it.

Customer Reviews

Sexy great read

If you are into beautiful sexy powerful women then look no further than Jen Estop Elemental Assassin series.

The characters are well developed, and while the books stop short of being a true romance series, there's enough hot scenes to keep romance readers happy. Be prepared for a fast ride with lots of action - all dealt out by a wise cracking super hot female killer! Come on, what more could you possibly want!

Awesome book

...and that's coming from someone that doesn't like reading....


By far, one of my favorite series. It's fast paced, quirky and the characters are well developed and witty. Two thumbs up!
