In the remote, eastern European town of Borslav there is St. Sebastian orphanage, a place where people discard their unwanted children. For the American, Blaire Baker, it’s the perfect place to volunteer her services. Paired with a cheerful volunteer nurse, Blaire is enthusiastic about the possibilities, but is quickly discouraged when she encounters the nefarious nature of the staff and the deplorable conditions of the facility and the children.

Upon arrival, one of the children informs Blaire, “There’s something in the basement.” It isn’t long before strange things begin happening, including Blaire’s flashbacks of the accident that killed her parents. The children soon suffer injuries that Blaire, first, fears may be the deeds of the callous workers but she soon thinks the abuse may originate from a source that is less than human, something unwanted.

The unwanted is coming but in order for Blaire to fight it, she must dig into St. Sebastian and herself in search of truth. Blaire wants nothing more than to help the children, but when discovers the tragedy that happened in the basement and learns that the same evil forces are still at work, it will be Blaire who needs help…There’s something in the basement.

***Destiny -#NerdGirlDezzy’s  Review***
Gripping. Chilling. Horrifying.
By far my favorite psychological horror. Jean has this uncanny way to give you a story that sucks you in whole and spits you out in pieces. In The Unwanted- The Black Water Tales, you get to meet the children of Saint Sebastian Orphanage. These lovely little children take you on one wild ride as nothing is as it seems and each chapter will make you question what you just read. From hiding under the covers to biting my nails, this amazingly written story gets five stars because not many tales have the ability to make you afraid of children.
