As we all know, Jennifer Estep came sliding into our hearts from the beginning with her Elemental Assassin series. EA has been a smash hit from the beginning and if you've been reading this series or following our reviews then we all know about Gin Blanco and her relationship with Owen. It took a turn for the worst when Owen's psychopathic ex showed up in town intent on destroying everyone.
In this novella that gives us that Jennifer style we all know and love, we get to see why Owen really acted the way he did about the entire situation. Which ended up more from guilt than anything else. However, I can't leave anything alone and I'm naturally suspicious. So it just makes me wonder if this was done just so that, we as the reader, don't hate him because of the way he acted? I don't know but it's definitely something to think about. It just seems like it gives him an out. However, Owen was always a good guy so who knows? Maybe this is just him showing us that he really is that guy.
Either way if you're into the EA series (which you should be) you should read this to get some insight. And we definitely get into Owen's psyche. If you're looking for an explanation as to why Owen was such a PIA in the last couple books, this gives you that answer.
