Will Chris put his love for Jenna ahead of his duty?
Chris comes across as a simple man that blends into the world he inhabits. He does his job with great care and excels at being the top of his field. Yet, Chris is more than most see. He has ambitions but is willing to wait until the time is right. For the most part, Chris is a good citizen, and he does his job well. However, after meeting Jenna and hearing her ideas, things may not be as he assumed they were.
I like Chris as he is intelligent, self-disciplined, and loyal to profession, country, and family. Yet, Chris isn't who I would typically root for in a story. I think after he finds Jenna, he also finds himself. Chris can finally relax. Once this happens, he seems more human and less programmed. He is, after all, a modified human.
Jenna is, for all purposes, an inlander. Basically, a working-class citizen of low income. Yet, she doesn't act as though she is of that class. Jenna comes across as confident, socially forward, polite, and high-class manners. She goes with the flow for the most part, but no matter how classy she comes across, she is a purebred. Jenna is not modified, and therefore people look at her as a novelty, a specimen, or they dislike simply because she wasn't altered.
I think Jenna is brilliant. She has learned to protect herself and to get by in a different city than what she grew up or went to college in. Jenna is also forward-thinking. However, that is a spoiler, so I won't go any further. Just know that Jenna knows more than the Order would like her to know.
I loved the theme of this fictional book; I say that as even though it is made up, many things in this perfect society aren't perfect. The citizens don't see the different races, but they see the modification of the human. They also judge you based on your location and class status. The author brings out in the imperfections slowly and shows how Jenna is treated differently than Chris. This is the same as what we are seeing in the media today, yet different. The change in Chris once he has a few conversations with Jenna shows that one person can make a difference.
I also adore the relationship that Chris and Jenna build together. Therefore, my rating for The Unexpected Inlander by Kellyn Thompson is five stars. I am looking forward to the next book, The Modified Blueprint.

When I was asked to read The Unexpected Inlander, I checked out the cover and the book summary. The cover was simple, but the book summary alluded the story would be anything but ordinary.
Chris is a man dedicated to his job, that being the job of a government assassin. He’s never once questioned his assignments. That is until the assignment becomes personal.
Chris is not a stone-cold killer, void of any emotion. He’s sweet, considerate, good with his hands, and loving. He’s also a badass with weaponry and taking out his targets… so I guess you can say he’s a well-rounded individual. 😀
Jenna, she was just meh. She didn’t stand out to me, like Chris. She felt more like a supporting actress than the main star.
Plot summation: The plot wasn’t hard to figure out, but the road to closing the Robertson’s case was very entertaining.
