I have a lot of favorite heroines, like almost as many as I have book boyfriends, because you know the girls in books are just as important to gush over! Some of the standouts aren’t going to be a surprise as I am sure many of you would agree with me on say, Katniss Everdeen or Clary Fray! But the whole reason I blog is to help share my love of many, many books and the authors who write them. So today I am going to focus on the author, Melissa Haag and write about one of her characters from her YA paranormal series, The Judgement of the Six. I am also giving away a signed copy of her first book in the series, Hope(less) donated by Melissa Haag! You just have to leave a comment on this post telling me what characteristics make you just adore your favorite heroines (& enter the rafflecopter form below)!
(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?
I am going to highlight the heroine from book 2 of the Judgement of the Six series, (Mis)Fortune. Michelle has some unexplainable gifts in the telepathic sort, where she gets a vision of some sort of financial windfalls, be it the lottery or stocks or whatever. Michelle has been held captive for 4 years along with her 2 little step-brothers and her step-father by a cruel man named Blake, who is using her to make money. One day everything changes and she discovers he is some sort of beast/shifter and without being too spoilery–because you MUST read this series–Michelle escapes with her step-brothers. She then runs into a kind and extremely attractive man, Emmitt who brings her into the safety of his world – which kind of feels similar to the world she just escaped, so she proceeds with a lot of caution and ultimately learns to trust them.
I was so drawn to Michelle and her moxie just made me smile constantly. She was so mature and at the same time she could still admit that she barely knows what she is doing especially as she is thrust into her new situation and dealing with the discovery of an underground world that seems so much more vast than she could ever imagine. She was so strong and would do anything to save her brothers from growing up in that horror show of captivity. I love that she was cautious, but realistic, knowing she needs Emmitt and his families resources to help her understand what and who the other group of werewolves were and how her powers seem to be connected to these shifters while she herself is ultimately human.
Michelle is still my favorite heroine of this series and I am so in love with all of the characters and this world that I tell everyone I know to read this series! So, I hope this intrigues you enough to delve into this fabulous story and you check out this extremely unique and intriguing werewolf series! Be sure to grab book 1, Hope(less) as it is free across all ebook platforms in celebration of the upcoming release of book 5, (Dis)content in November!
