Waiting on Wednesday #43 - Poison Promise by Jennifer Estep


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

This week I was having a hard time choosing which book to feature. One of the titles is coming out in the UK this July, but there is no word yet on when it will be available in the States (The Seventh Miss Hatfield). So, I am going with the one that is going to be available in the U.S, soon. 


Poison Promise is #11 in Jennifer Estep's New York Time's best-selling Elemental series. It is due out July 22, 2014 from Pocket Books. The series features assassin Gin Blanco otherwise known as the Spider. She controls the elements of Ice and Stone and uses this magic along with her other talents on any job she accepts. From the author: " When she’s not busy killing people and righting wrongs, Gin runs a barbecue restaurant called the Pork Pit in the fictional Southern metropolis of Ashland. The city is also home to giants, dwarves, vampires, and elementals – Air, Fire, Ice, and Stone."

In Poison Promise, from Goodreads: There’s a new drug on the streets of Ashland, and its name “Burn” sums up the potent effect it has on its users. When one of her restaurant employees is threatened by dealers of the drug, Gin steps in to set things straight.

Jennifer Estep's website also has on the book's webpage a synopsis written from Gin's point of view and a rather healthy sample of the book from Chapter One.

What I like about this book: It's urban fantasy. I enjoy reading about Gin Blanco who is careful about picking her battles, but don't mess with her family or friends. And I like knowing that there is at least one more book to come in the series. 

So, What book are you waiting on this week?
