Description

The New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series continues with a new e-novella—from the point of view of Finnegan Lane, the foster brother of Gin Blanco, and a fan favorite of readers of the series.

The fallout from his disastrous “family reunion” in Bitter Bite has left Finn feeling hurt, angry, and depressed. He can barely stand to look at himself in the mirror, much less eat any of the delicious barbecue from Gin’s famed Pork Pit restaurant.

But when the funeral for a slain security guard at his bank turns into a showdown with some nasty underworld giants, Finn knows that he must act in order to protect an innocent family.

Finnegan Lane might be the most unwanted man in Ashland these days, but he’s determined to try to make amends for his past mistakes...

Amazing What Estep packed into a novella length book

Unwanted is what happens in the aftermath of Bitter Bite written from Finn’s perspective. Caution – make sure you read Bitter Bite first to avoid spoiling that story. That being said, if you haven't read Bitter Bite you might want to hold off on reading my review.

Finnegan Lane is struggling with the chaos and devastation caused by letting his mother back into his life. The guilt is overwhelming. The public's opinion, his career, and his self-esteem have all taken a huge hit.

An unexpected ally, pushes Finn into helping one of this mother’s second hand victims. His help leads to a show down Finn might not survive. Feeling utterly alone, Finn proves to us the man we always know him to be.

I flat out Love Finn. I flat out Love Gin. I flat out Love Estep’s storytelling. So, there was no doubt I was going to love Unwanted. What did surprise me was how much Estep packed into a novella length book!

If you haven’t read the Elemental Assassin series, I just have to say, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Amazing world building, fabulously original plots with characters that become family, all wrapped up in a scifi romantic fantasy. What more could you ask for?

I received this ARC copy of Unwanted from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books in exchange for a honest review.

DO NOT read this book before you read Bitter Bite since it would be a total spoiler.

Who doesn’t love Finn?!?! This novella takes place after the events in Bitter Bite. Finn is devastated… he has loss so much and doesn’t know how to make it right again. He has his boss on his back, he has to attend the funerals of his friends, he wonders about his mother and how to move forward and pick up the pieces again. Surprise a package arrives that allows him to take his friends and sister, Gin Blanco on a vacation over the holidays, just what they all needed. Right?

If you have read any of the other stories, it is not a surprise when this vacation is no picnic. They are setup in another trap and the “Spider” has to save the day. Of course she needs the help of all her friends. Jennifer Estep has the ability to transport you into the “Spider” world. This allowed you to get a deeper view of Finn and how he sees the world.

You will not be disappointed, but first read Bitter Bite, this story contains many spoilers.

Finn’s Book!!!

Finnegan Lane is one of my most favorite characters ever in the Elemental Assassin series. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty mad at Finn when he blew off Gin's warnings about his mom, but could totally understand him wanting to connect with the mother he thought had died years ago.

I have to say while it broke my heart to see Finn hurting so badly for everyone who was effected by his mother's rampage through the bank, I part of me loved watching him see first-hand for a change all that Gin has dealt with for years. That being said, I wanted my funny, sweet and deadly Finnegan Lane back and I loved how he got his mo-jo back. It was also really great to get a book from Finn's point-of-view. I have to admit, I loved watching him fight to protect others just like he had done in the past with Gin and their friends, but I felt like Finn needed to do this himself to feel like he had finally done enough to make up for his mistakes.

Unwanted was the book all the Finnegan Lane fans had been waiting for. Yes it was rough at times to see Finn suffer, but I feel like my respect levels for him increased because he grew more because of the horrible experience with his mother and handling the repercussions of her actions. I can't wait to spend more time with all of the characters in the next full length Elemental Assassin book in August.
