110:4 Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep

I'd been seeing this one on recommendation pages so had put it up on my wishlist waiting for the right opportunity to grab it.  Then a friend said I absolutely had to read it so I bumped it up on the wishlist and I got a couple for Hanukkah so that was all the incentive I needed to grab the rest and get started.

Can I just say how happy I am that I did?!  We'll get right past the fact that the main character and I share names (although her's is spelled wrong LOL) and move right into the fact that she's a kickass assassin but one with some morals.  It's an interesting mix.  Throw in that she's a stone elemental with some control over ice as well so we have magic using mixed in and while there are vampires, they aren't nearly the kind that we are generally familiar with and it's dwarves and giants rather than werewolves so far.  

A really fun read that totally gripped me and kept me until it was over and I'm so glad I have the next one on hand.  If you are a fan of the urban fantasy scene and enjoy a really strong female character, this is definitely a series for you.
