ARC Review & Giveaway: Unwanted by Jennifer Estep

Series:     Elemental Assassin #14.5
Pub. Date:July 18, 2016
Publisher:Pocket Books
Length:100 pages

If you are a fan of this series, you can't help but be a fan of Finnegan Lane. His good looks, abundance of charm, and steadfast loyalty to Gin have made him one of my favorite characters of the series. So I was super excited to see a novella from his POV.

Unwanted takes place shortly after Bitter Bite, where Finn's mother re-appeared and played him like a fool. Despite being tortured by his own mother in her attempt to rob Finn's bank, his coworkers are looking at Finn with hate and distrust. Oh I just hated the way everyone was treating my Finn. And he was so hurt and damaged by the events in the last book, that he felt like he deserved all the ill treatment. I just wanted to scoop him up and hug him and love him and keep him forever!

So this story really is all about Finn in the aftermath of his betrayal in Bitter Bite. There are only brief cameos from Gin and Sophia. While I love Finn and enjoyed this story, I would also like to see a novella that focuses more in his fun-loving side and loyalty to his family. But overall this was a nice edition to the series.
