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) is a novella starting up right after BITTER BITE. It focuses on Finn and what he is going through in the aftermath of his Mother trying to rob the bank he works for. His co-workers are shunning, and blaming him for the deaths of the security guards that were killed during the robbery. When he finds out that the wife of one of the slain guards needs help, he puts his special skills to work. I love Finn and when I saw the way his co-workers treat him the way they did, I just wanted to give him a big hug. I love THE ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN SERIES and cannot wait for the next book in the series. I give UNWANTED 5/5 stars.
The author of Alice takes readers back down the rabbit hole to a dark, twisted, and fascinating world based on the works of Lewis Carroll…
The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. A place where Alice could finally rest, no longer the plaything of the Rabbit, the pawn of Cheshire, or the prey of the Jabberwocky. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash—and hope is nowhere to be found.
Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter, a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen and her goblin or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King.
The pieces are set and the game has already begun. Each move brings Alice closer to her destiny. But, to win, she will need to harness her newfound abilities and ally herself with someone even more powerful—the mysterious and vengeful Red Queen…

Red Queen (Chronicles of Alice) is a twisted take on an old classic. The story line and world building are very well-developed. Alice and Hatcher have just escaped the old city. Everything was to be green and beautiful, but when they arrived out side it is nothing but a scorched wasteland. Now Alice and Hatcher have to find out what caused the fire that burned the land, while looking for Hatcher’s daughter. They are in for a twisted adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat. I loved this story and the way Christina Henry has portrayed the characters. This version of Alice is my new favorite classic. I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give RED QUEEN 5/5 STARS.

Cerise MacKinnon is kinswoman to the Dark Lord of Kismera and his wife Ki, ruler of Oralia. With feelings for Lexin left unexplored when he departed for the High Kingdom, Cerise uses her viable talents to ensconce herself in the castle in order to contribute to the prosperity of Oralia. When Lexin returns, seeking aid in his search, Cerise finds a way to insert herself into the mission, hoping to rekindle the spark between them.

Lexin’s Quest (Knights of Kismera Book 2) is a wonderful adventure and journey. The characters and world building are very well-developed. When Lexin is sent on a quest to find the High King’s son who they thought was dead, Cerise goes on the quest with him. Something has put a strain on their relationship since The Dark Lord of Kismera. Lexin wonders if he is good enough for Cerise, but Cerise tries in so many way that she wants him no matter what. I love the storytelling that Tamara H. Hartl. The whole world building and descriptions makes you feel like you are there in the story. I urge you to read this book and series, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I give Lexin’s Quest (Knights of Kismera Book 2) 5/5 stars.
Two days ago my trusty Kindle Fire died. Sniff, Sniff. I have had that Kindle for about five years or longer. When I went to bed my kindle was fine. Woke up about 3:30 in the morning, because I could not sleep and turned my kindle on and it was stuck in a boot loop. I have tried everything that I could find online, and nothing works. Yesterday, I spent nearly all day trying to revive it. No, luck. So, I broke down and ordered me a new one off of Amazon. It has a bigger screen and is lighter and thinner than the old one.
The only thing is I had a game I was playing and did not back it up on Facebook. Now, all that work on the game is lost. I cannot get in to link it to my Facebook account. Now, my poor cities on Empire Z is going to be farms for everyone else. SNIFF, SNIFF. I had 3 accounts and 6 cities on the game. I guess I will have to be content with the ones that I have left. Now, I have to read my books on my phone until I get my new Kindle in 4-5 days. I already feel quit lost without it. Until then I will continue with my morning.
