Review: (Mis)Fortune by Melissa Haag

Image & Description from
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?

My Thoughts:
I love how the books in this series are weaving together!  And the covers are BEAUTIFUL!  Michelle is special like Gabby from Hope(Less).  Sadly she's been forced to use her gift to benefit a cruel man with very little hope of a better life.  Blake is one mean SOB!  You'd think if he was so smart he would have tried using kindness to persuade Michelle to help him rather than abuse.  I think we'll be seeing more of him as the series progresses.  This book really opened up some questions about the werewolves and the possibility of more than one type of that could exist.  Like Gabby, Michelle has had to deal with much grief in her young life.  The only complaint I have is the same as the last book.  The lack of background story for the main character leaves the story open for too many holes.  I have so many questions.  Who are their fathers?  Where are their extended family members?  What was their life like before tragedy struck.  I hope much of it gets explained later on.  Emmit is YUM-MEH!  Unlike Clay he plants himself in the very middle of Michelle's life without a single apology.  He gives her the security she's been missing for so long.  I can't wait to move on to the next book.  I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a unique paranormal story to dive into.  

Recommended for 14 & up.

I got this book from Amazon and received no compensation for my review.
