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...

Unwanted (Elemental Assassin, #14.5)Unwanted by Jennifer Estep

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. This book is set for publication July 18, 2016.
