The Unwanted

The Unwanted, G-6 Chronicles: The Unwanted Trilogy, Daniel L. Carter, Fantasy, OakTara Publishing, June 14, 2010, 240 pages.


Synopsis: Born out of vengeance, five discarded children must fight to keep their family safe from the homicidal geneticist who created them. Millions of lives stand in the balance as sacrifices are made. This family will never be the same as heroes rise and fall in The Unwanted book 1 of The G-6 Chronicles: The Unwanted Trilogy...

My thoughts: This book has the feel of an epic story, but hasn't quite achieved that status. The characters weren't fleshed-out enough. They certainly underwent several learning points, and improved themselves, but it didn't feel like they were real enough. The plot, however, shows a bit of promise, if a bit cliche. With all this said, about half-way through the book, I began to really enjoy it. I'm interested to see where Daniel Carter goes with the series.

This book was provided free by the author. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

My rating: 3 stars
