(Mis)fortune (Judgement of the Six #2) by Melissa Haag
Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.
Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.
After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.
Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?
Thoughts on (Mis)fortune
So. Book one gave us a solid relationship story and a lot of hints that something big was coming. Book two expands of this. BIG things are coming. BIG THINGS! While we’re getting a bigger picture of what’s happening and some of the events in book one are fleshed out a little more, there’s still plenty to learn.
*gives everyone crazy, giddy eyes*
Starting at roughly the same time as book one, Michelle’s story is very different from Gabby’s. Held prisoner inside her own house, Michelle has learned to play a role that keeps her and her little brothers safe. She has no idea what she’s been thrown into the middle of and finding out that werewolves are real sends her into a tailspin. The fact that not all werewolves are evil like Blake and his men never crosses her mind. Until Emmit crosses her path.
Emmit’s slow courting of Michelle and his desire to keep her safe from who she’s running from hits a snag when all her secrets come tumbling out. She spends most of this book on edge and jittery– WITH GOOD REASON –and she has a hard time believing someone would help her simply because she needs help. It’s heartbreaking, really. She simply has no concept that someone would help her without expecting something in return. So she keeps her gift hidden until she can’t anymore.
Then things get crazy.
With our understanding expanding, this book only whets the appetite for the next. Will I be reading it soon? DARN RIGHT. Might I add, these books are rocking on the reread. I love discovering little hints to the future I missed the first time around. *thumbs up*
