Even the Spider can’t escape a ghost’s web . . .

I’m being haunted.

As Gin Blanco, aka the assassin the Spider, I’m used to being haunted by all the bad things I’ve done over the years. I suppose it was only a matter of time before an actual ghost came back to haunt me. But for once, I’m not the bad guy, and I wasn’t the person who sent this ghost—this haint—into the afterlife.

But this haint definitely wants something from me, and I can’t help but think that it’s revenge on the person responsible for her untimely demise.

Good thing revenge is my specialty, whether it’s among the living or the dead . . .

Note: Haints and Hobwebs is an 11,000-word story that takes place after the events of Tangled Threads, book 4 in the Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series. Haints and Hobwebs first appeared in The Mammoth Book of Ghost Romance in 2012.


What can I say about Haints and Hobwebs, well if you haven’t tried the Elemental Assassin series this is a nice novella to give the series a go. 

I LOVE Gin. I LOVE all the characters. Finn, Gin, and Owen all of them. I adore Owen. He’s so sweet and he loves Gin. The best thing about this novella is that we get GHOSTS, yes, ghosts. This is the first time we are seeing them in this world. Last, as always their is no shortage of action. It’s one thing you can always count on in the Elemental Assassin series. 

Haints and Hobwebs had me hooked from begging to end. I adored this novella and I LOVE the Elemental Assassin series. If you enjoy a kick-ass heroine, outstanding world building, and amazing action sequences, then this novella and series are for you. 

Rated: 4 Stars

So many fun Gin stories. Wait until you get latter in the series and you get some novellas from some of the other characters. 😀

Wonderful review. I am excited to see you are able to get even the novellas at your library. This is a series I plan to catchup and this would include the novellas. I’ve never been sold on Owen. Maybe I’ll get there when I get back into the series.
