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, ...more
We finally get a book where it's Finn's turn to shine instead of Gin's and it was something that was much needed... especially after the last book. My heart really went out to him because of course, we all know what a great guy he is.
And because of what happened in the last book, everyone at the bank is treating Finn quite horribly. Unfortunately, they don't know exactly what happened but they blame him all the same.
Finn's boss, Stuart Mosley, is taking Finn to task but not exactly like e ...more
Owen Grayson’s novella was published three years ago which made it well past time for the other important man in Gin Blanco’s life to get his own short. UNWANTED directly follows the events of BITTER BITE, so Finnegan Lane’s story was written for existing ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN fans, and shouldn’t be read on its own. The Spider’s foster brother took a bit of a lickin’ in the last installment, but he’s still the son of the Tin Man, and quite capable of giving as good as he ge ...more
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, ...more
Following the crushing betrayal by this mother Deirdre Shaw in Bitter Bite, Finn was still wallowing in guilt over the death and destruction caused her in attempted robbery. Finn was trying to figure out how to make amends and regain the trust of those who felt that he was complicit in his mother's scheme. This book saw him begin to regain his sense of purpose and respect as he wa ...more
This is a story that's definitely aimed at the fans of Finnegan Lane. Finn is kind of the adopted brother to Gin aka the Spider and he's always been this big brash character with an almost devil may care attitude. Whilst not part of either ...more
Understandably, this isn’t the time for Finn to be smooth or charming or sexy. This story is set on the heels of a book where his own mother tried to kill him. She tortured him and left a trail of bodies in her wake. And now Finn feels responsi ...more
No one had ever made me feel as worthless, useless, and foolish as she had.
A really great, and much needed novella from Finn’s POV. After the mistakes he made in Bitter Bite, it was so heartbreaking to see the charming and happy Finn so disillusioned, so broken by the guilt he carried.
I needed to do something right for a change, after doing so many things wrong with Deidre.
I’m very glad that by the end of this novella Finn was reminded that he is his father’s son, and definitely not like...more
There are definitely some spoilers for earlier books in the series.
After the events contained in Bitter Bite this short novella tells us of the days following them in the life of Finnegan Lane who is consumed by guilt and is provided with a chance to relieve some of that guilt.
I loved the story but I am unable to share much more than the information contained within the synopsis since this novella is too s ...more
Unwanted is a short look into Finn's mind and it was an enlightening journey for him and fans of the character.
If you've not read Bitter Bite there will be a mild spoiler.

I've always wanted to get a glimpse of what's inside Finn's pretty frivolous head and I finally got my wish. At first he seems a brainless flirt but as we've all learned over the course of 14 books Finn has a sharp mind and even sharper reflexes.
I hated the start of this novella. S ...more
What a sad, stupid, gullible fool I'd been.
This is the aftermath from Bitter Bite. Finn is down on himself as is everyone at work. You can feel his shame and guilt. He got screwed over but only blames himself.
Entertaining read. Quick but full of emotion.

To say that I am a huge fan of the Elemental Assassin Series could be an understatement. I have all the books in the series in both e- and paperback format. It's actually one of the few series that I allow on my physical book shelf. I have also read all the free shorts available on the the author's website. This isn't the first story told from Finnegan Lane's point of view, but the other was told by teenage Finn.
This book follows the events Bitter Bite, where Fi ...more

SO, before you jump into Unwanted, ensure that you've already finished reading Bitter Bite. If you are an Elemental Assassin series regular, you already know that Finn is Gin Blanco's flashier, cockier foster brother who dates her sister Bria Cooli ...more
