Blurb:

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…

Melissa's Review:

Unwanted is book 14.5 in the Elemental Assassin series, this is a novella told in the POV of Finn. After the events of the previous book in the series, I was wondering how Finn would be coping with everything. His mom who he thought was dead his whole life breezes in and plays the perfect part of the caring mother. Then it all goes down the drain and his fantasy is shattered in horrible ways. So in this installment, Finn is dealing with tension at his work and how the families are dealing with their deceased after the attack. It's an emotional read and I felt so bad for Finn since he's beating himself up over it all and no one seems to understand it wasn't his fault.

Unwanted is an emotional novella that gives you more depth on one of my favorite characters. It's quick and tugged at my heartstrings. I really enjoy Finn's character, he's normally light and carefree all while being suave so it was a bit hard to see him like this but it's fully understandable why if you're up-to-date with the series. While you don't have to read this installment to fully understand the series, this novella opens up a little bit about an important character. If you enjoy the Elemental Assassin series, I suggest you pick this novella up!

    1. I was the same way. Try book one and two and see if they hook you like they did me. I adore the audio version, not sure if you're into audiobooks though.
