    This book was just annoying. 1. Bethi and EVERYTHING about her was annoying.2. The constant, CONSTANT dream sequences were annoying.3. Luke refusing to claim her until she was 18 was really fucking annoying.4. The fact that the whole mating thing was so fickle was annoying. You could mate with anyone or be forced into a mating. That's not my kind of mating book. 5. Bethi thinking that in the past when she cared about make up and boys that her life wasn't worth living because those things are shallow was annoying.6. The romance was annoying. Why did he love her? Did she actually love him? For most of the book it felt like she just wanted to use him.7. (view spoiler)[Her claiming the bad guy was annoying.(hide spoiler)]ANNOYING ANNOYING ANNOYING.

    Now this heroine just drove me nuts. The story is great - but Bethi, alone dropped those stars. Talk about TSTL! Let's see how many really stupid choices we can make and still stay alive! I can't imagine even a teenager couldn't think through consequences a little better than this chick!

    Bethi is a normal teenage girl, going to school, living her life when all the sudden she starts dreaming these horrible, horrible dreams! They are of past lives and they all end the same way... in her death. She wakes up screaming because she not only sees everything but feels it as well. It's like she's there reliving everything over and over again. It gets so bad that she tries extremely hard to stay awake... at any cost. When she meets Luke she knows exactly what he is. She doesn't want to have anything to do with him because she thinks that he is just like the other werewolves in her past lives. She knows that they will only torture and use her. For what? She doesn't know but she will do everything she can to figure it out. The dreams mean something but until she can figure it out, she is stuck with trying to stay far away from any werewolves.. if only her heart and tummy will stop doing crazy things whenever Luke is around. And if only Luke would stop being so nice and protecting her. She doesn't really know what to do about him or her growing feelings. Will she realize that Luke is nothing like the other werewolves and is her true mate before it's too late? Can she figure everything else out before she dies... again?Holy crow Batman! Information overload! This book is packed with A LOT of information! Most of my questions from books 1 and 2 were answered but more arose by the time I finished (Un)wise. I'm still trying to wrap my head around everything! There was literally SO much! So many dreams... memories... pain... anger... frustration... and yes even romance... be prepared for an emotional roller coaster! And do not even try to figure anything out... there are twists and turns that had me shaking my head, scratching my head, asking what?! While I am definitely enjoying this series I need to take a short break before delving back in. This book has a lot of flashbacks and since Charlene's book is the next one, I have a feeling it's going to be loaded with even more flashbacks. I usually don't mind all the flashbacks but this was a bit too much for me. I can see why the author did what she did but it was just too much crammed in in my opinion. I would have liked to see some of this information in the earlier books.And of course I have my casting choices... ;) Hehe.

    4.5/5 stars (RabidReads) This is one of those series that continues to get better as it goes. Not that the first books were bad, because they definitely weren’t, but that the story line gets more. More everything- answers, romance, running for your life moments, action, new characters. But because this is wisdom’s book, we do get more answers than anything else- well except for the romance. Just a heads up, since this is the third in this series, there could be some spoilers ahead if you haven’t started the series yet.Bethi Pederson has a problem. She can’t allow herself to sleep, so she spends her time buying pills to keep herself awake, and trying to stay awake even with the pills. When she sleeps, she dreams, only these aren’t your everyday dreams. These are dreams of herself in many different time periods, some from a millennium before, or even older, and without exception, she dies. Bethi feels every death, every horrible second of it, and the reader goes with her in the dreams, but there’s nothing really horribly explicit as far as the violence, although I could have done without the being burned alive dream. She also knows from her dreams that she is being hunted by a group of men that can change into horrible wolf like creatures. She knows that if she is found, they will kill her, just like in all of her dreams. So when she is at the mall and is approached by a young man who seems extremely interested in her, she runs. She leaves everything she knows behind, including her mother, and her senior year of high school.If you have read the first book in this series, Hope(less),then you know that Luke, one of the good guy werewolves, is searching for Bethi. So when he finds her and she seems to know what he is and runs, he is understandably upset because he knows that Bethi is his mate and she has spurned him. So he follows her and helps her, without her knowledge. The read turns into an on the road adventure and I must say, it was both filled with action and bad moments, but it’s also the story of Luke and Bethi’s romance, eventually. The premise of this series involves two separate types of werewolves. The regular werewolves are the good ones, and the second group, Urbats, are a delusional group of werewolves that want the six women for their own nefarious reasons. Or evil reasons, whichever works. Bethi doesn’t know there are two groups, so of course she thinks Luke is going to kill her.As with the other books in this series so far, I literally could not stop reading, so it was a very fast read for me. This is the book where the characters from the previous books all come together, so I really liked that part. Now with Bethi, they are all learning what they are and why they exist. There really is an interesting back story to their existence, and why they keep getting born again. All this added a lot to this author’s world building for me. I could have done with a little less of the dreams, and more of the romance however.Three books in, and I already have the fourth one to read, (Un)Bidden. The main character from that book has already been introduced in both of the previous books. I recommend these books to paranormal romance readers ages 16+ due to sexual situations mentioned, but not really shown.FYI As of the writing, book one Hope(less) is free on some if not all outlets.

    (Un)wise is book #3 of the Judgement of the Six paranormal clean romance series. This is Bethi’s story. Each of the six young women in this series has a powerful ability. Bethi's is wisdom; she has started having very vivid dreams, some about her own past lives, some about other women, but most about their deaths. Over and over, Bethi dreams of danger and death. She tries not to sleep, fearing more dreams.A stranger approaches in a shopping mall, but Bethi senses danger and runs. Leaving home, she runs for her life and from her dreams. Exhaustion and lack of money allow the stranger a chance to help.Sent to find Bethi by Gabby, Luke has a hard time getting near her; she doesn’t trust him and sees too much in her dreams. Hoping to put an end to her nightmares Bethi agrees Luke can take her to meet the others, but danger lurks and others track and attack them. Travelling on a stolen motorbike, the pair head to Canada and into the jaws of the enemy. Can Luke keep his precious cargo safe?In this book Bethi must learn to understand the messages in her dreams; there is very little interaction from other characters. It’s Luke and Bethi on the open road and Bethi’s dreaming state. It does fill in lots of background about the sisters and their thousand year recurring cycle, with re-births and deaths constantly revolving—similar to the beliefs systems of reincarnation, where each time a person returns to earth they do so to evolve or settle an issue from a past life. Bethi sees her sisters and herself die over and over. However, as she understands her dreams she also sees the skills which each of them has learnt and how they've brought them to this lifetime.

    So far, Bethi undoubtedly has the worst ability among the girls - every time she dreams (and that happens a lot) she has nightmares - memories of past lives. In those dreams she witnesses the lives and all the awful deaths of herself and every other girl from the Judgment. The plus side of her ability is that we now have a better understanding of what is happening in the story and what purpose this girls have. Unfortunately, I absolutely did not like Bethi as a heroine. She annoyed me throughout the whole book with her behavior In general and toward Luke specifically. The only reason she decided to claim him was for her personal gain (at least in the first half of the book) and she did not consider anyone else's feelings. And I did not see any chemistry between Luke and Bethi, which was unfortunate. But, despite my opinion of the MC, I still very much liked the book. I really like the story as a whole and direction where this is all going.

    Wow. Just wow. Ok. This series has me. So many questions. So much information. Wow. I was a little annoyed that there was so much more innuendo and tongue kissing. I wanted my daughter to read these. Not so much any more. I do wish the book would be from everyone's perspective. Ready for book 4. Except it probably won't be about peace and I wish it was.

    WOW... this book was just... wow... It's official, this might just be my close-to-favorite-series. I'm at lost for words. AMAZING!Now the story is getting interesting. This book answered most of my questions. My confusion level is below my belly button now - so... half? Bethi and Luke were hilarious and cute. This book did not follow the same route as book one and two. For once, the girl pursued the guy. I also like that Melissa kept the book PG-13. The epilogue had me like... Carlos whattttt???? I can't wait to read about Isabelle's story. I predict she'll be a badass. Onwards to book 4. Charlene's story!

    5 out of 5 shining stars.O.M.G. The raw talent in this woman should make you run to get her first book and read until your eyes bleed.Warning: I was so honored to be asked to read an ARC for an honest review, now if you are aware – or not aware, this is the third book in a series. Can’t this series be read out of order – no. And also why would you want to? All these books are fantastic – honestly, truly I can say that. Anyways so you know I am completely and utterly saying my own feelings on this book. My honest own feelings. (also if you have NOT read the first two books there will be spoilers from those books in this series – it cannot be helped – but there will be NO spoilers for this book)Song Choice: “Dreamer” by Uh Huh Her, “Heart Skipped a Beat” by The XX.First Thoughts: I think this might be my favorite Melissa book, – I think. I am not sure I really, truly still love Hope(less). So wonderful…but the great thing about Melissa is that she creates whole new characters, and whole new plots. Yeah okay I will admit there are times when I love a series – really truly love it – but the stories are strikingly similar to the last. Melissa manages every time to give us not only new characters, but whole new adventures.Thoughts on Plot: So like I mentioned up there, whole new plot for us. There is a lot of action in this book, in Hope(less) we get a lot of Clay and Gabby together, trying to figure each other, but while it wasn’t running, cars, fights kind of action there was a different sort of movement in that book. (Mis) Fortunate was also a bit less action-y then this book but still awesome, still amazing. Anyways this, was magnificent. This was mix of humor, very, very serious topics, and amazing characters to boot – we will get to them and I am excited to, so very excited. This book we get to tie in the last ones, we are learning a lot of new stuff, but while everything isn’t completely laid out for you like a-b-c, it’s all there, and it all comes together and I swear I had a thousand – excuse the stereotype – blonde moments and I was hitting my forehead going, well duh! How did I not see that! There is so much new, awesome things we learn and I don’t think we ever really get “lost” or left behind, we are right there with the characters, figuring it out as they do – does that make sense? I hope so. Totally awesome. I loved it. I LOVED IT I LOVED IT. Okay trying to calm myself. (I loved it) I blew right through this the pacing was amazing, and I wanted to read it in one sitting, the one sitting meaning no reasons for getting but darn life, and need for sleep! *shakes fist*. So in a nutshell – Melissa seriously every book just tops the last, and I mean the bar was pretty fucking high as it was. (I mean come on – Clay? How could anyone top that?)Characters:Bethi:Luke:Gabby:Clay:Michelle:Emmitt:Now about them(I am not going to do all these characters because we already know Gabby, Clay, Michelle and Emmitt)Bethi: Okay I will admit I was a little worried, she is the youngest girl we have read about. Pfft what a stupid thought really. She is – and I am sorry to say this to the other girls – she is my favorite out of them so far. Oh my god. She was amazing far more wise (get it? Anyways) then her age. She is also beyond FUNNY, she is sassy, quick to wit. But there is so much to her. She just such a 3 dimensional characters is not even funny. She is funny, she is wise, she is tormented. But above all things she is strong. I don’t even know really how to begin to describe how awesome Bethi is, she really does put everyone else’s well-being above her own she makes the hard choices, and does what needs to be done, and with a certain Bethi flare. She is – seriously I am in love with her. Amazing, amazing MC.Luke: You stubborn, stubborn man. I wants him. Okay maybe not as much as I want Clay – or possibly Carlos – hello hottie….anyways getting off track here (Melissa you just make too many swoony men how is a person supposed to choose just one?). So anyways he was the one that would joke with her but was also very respectful, and protective. I really liked Luke though some things I just couldn’t see his reasonings for he does get over it. Thank God. Anyways Luke, Luke, Luke <3The ending: I need more. I need more. I don’t think you understand there is something totally awesome about getting an ARC and something totally horrible as well – I have wait even LONGER for the next one!!! UGH that is my only complaint. :D Loved this book.

    2019-05-06 17:57 stars -- This was the book I was most looking forward to after reading Curly's reviews, and probably what sold me on starting the series in the first place. It definitely isn't my favourite so far, which surprised me, but it's kind of fun knowing that Curly Carla and I have different tastes. There's a part of me that kind of wants to rate it 3.5 stars, but I think that's mostly just because I had high expectations, and wouldn't actually reflect my overall enjoyment of the book.Bethi was a mixed bag for me. I enjoyed her sass and independence, but at times her hard shell was hard to get past. It's so hard, b/c I understand why she is the way she is -- how could you not end up that way with what she's learning and experiencing in her dreams? And her fear of the werewolves prevents her from feeling all of her emotions because she's worried they will detect them on her...but it also prevents me, as a reader, from truly getting a feel for her. There were these aspects of her that I guess I almost wanted to explore, or needed to know more of to truly connect with her. It was like we were only given a shallow glimpse at times, and it wasn't enough for me. So while I thought she was fantastic, she isn't my favourite so far.But saying that, I LOVED her gift and what it gave us as readers. I learned so much in this story!! And it was frightening and horrifying and confusing. But I feel like I have a better grip as a whole on where this story is going and what's been going on so far. I will say that I am of two minds with the sheer number of dreams/flashbacks we received. I really enjoyed getting to see glimpses of how the different abilities affected the girls throughout their different lifetimes. I also felt like this really drove home the evilness of the Urbat and what they are doing and wanting to much disgust. And I loved getting glimpses into the current incarnations of the other sisters and what they felt growing up. But it got to be a bit much at times. Like, I'm torn. I enjoyed everything I got, but a part of me feels like it was overdone...but then which dreams would I eliminate, you know? Ugh.And that brings me to Luke. *sigh* Can I admit I was a little disappointed? Luke showed so much personality in Hope(less), and I really feel like we were shortchanged in this novel. BUT. But. But I've been enjoying the companion series, so I'm wondering if when she got to this book she already knew she would be writing the companion series, and so she left a lot for that book? I just don't feel like I know Luke at all, and I get that there is a pull there, but I felt like he was a secondary character in this novel at times. Now don't get me wrong, I ADORED his quiet protection for the first half of the story. He really has his work cut out for him. But I felt like something was missing in the romance area. It felt like Bethi just needed him, and that all that was connecting them was the pull. I would have liked a bit the romance department.So all in all this reads like a terrible review. Sometimes I think I'm a horrible reviewer. I mean, I gave this 4 stars! And I wholeheartedly stand by that! I guess when I just get involved in a series and enjoy it, I need to get all my thoughts out on the page. Maybe it really was a 3.5 star. I don't know. I go with my gut. I'm still enthralled with the series, but it just didn't live up to my expectations. I can't wait to see what Luke's Dream will tell us though. Meanwhile, I'm going to move on to book 4 and find out what Charlene has to tell us.

    2019-04-30 22:55 one, by far, is my favorite book in the series. and I’ve noticed a pattern with myself. The third book, generally, is most often my favorite. I don’t know why. I’m guessing because the story is established and I have a connection with the characters and the third book usually has the most information relating to the progression of the story.That’s not why this is my favorite. The MC, Bethi, (I don’t think the name fits, never did but whatevs) is a badass. She is prob the most tortured and she’s also the youngest. Shes got the best powers, I think, even though she is the most tortured. I was wondering how the author was going to do it too and she nailed it. She is like the lore holder or the bard. She relives all the past lives and feels what they feel. It’s a terribly important gift she has.I love her snarky attitude, she’s hella sarcastic. She would have to be I guess, you can’t take too much seriously when everytime you go to sleep you die a violent death. And Luke is fricking adorable. He just kinda lets her get her aggression out while at the same time understanding that its not directed at him but at the situation. He trying to be all virtuous and chilvalrous and she’s just not having it. I totally dig a woman is not afraid to make the first move. I think that their easy going banter back and forth regarding the bite and the claiming was hilarious.Favorite quotes“Hush,” he warned when I would have moved away to keep talking. “The decisions you make and the words you speak influence the people around you. Be aware of your influence.”He wanted me to like him? How in the hell did I end up finding the only damn werewolf who wanted to take it slow and get to know each other?In the shower, I let myself cry. I was beyond done with the dreams and feeling so desperate and crazy all the time. Why was I fighting so hard to hold on to a life I hated so much? The answer helped firm my determination. I didn’t want to be born again in the same crappy cycle facing the same hopless situation. With this life, I needed to make a difference.“It’s a boob,” I bit out annoyed. “I have two of them. They don’t do much. They just sit there. They definitely don’t bite, so stop acting like they’re going to come after you. Grow up.” “Please stop talking about them,” he said in a stiff strangled voice. I didn’t let up. “You know, sometimes it helps to name the things you fear. Let’s call the right one Everest and the left one Fuji. Two mountainous ranges waiting to be….”What was so wrong with me that he freaked out at the slightest touch? Other than the fact that some other werewolves wanted to kill me and I had dreams that made me scream loud enough to shake the nearest window…I mean, really, who didn’t have some kind of baggageGo read this book!

    http://bookbutterflyreviews.blogspot.caGahhhh! I hate Melissa Haag. No thats an absolute lie, I adore her, but if I read one more cliff hanger from her, I am going to die of anticipation!Saying that, you can imagine how ecstatic I was when I received the email from Melissa saying that her third book of the Judgement of Six series was coming out. I knew without a doubt in my mind that there was going to be a cliffhanger at the end, it kills me every time. You got me hooked Melissa Haag, you got me hooked. This is my fourth time reviewing for Melissa, and I must say, her books get better and better each time. If you look back at Hope(less) or (Mis)fortune, you can really see that those books were really the foundation for this one... and the three others yet to come. Each book sets up the next, and slowly, but surely, you get to see more and more of the big picture that Melissa paints for you. The thing is, she does it so subtly that you don't even realize whats happening until you look back and think "oh... I see what you did there!". Honestly, at first I felt a little iffy about each book chaining POVs, but Melissa has done it in such a unique and fun way that makes her story so much more alive and interesting that I can't even complain (an we all know how much of a complainer I am).Now for some specific loves I had with (Un)wise: First and foremost, I was so happy to have this head strong character that wasn't really your classic heroine. She, unlike her previous two counterparts in the past 2 books, knew what she wanted and what she needed to do to get there. She was also the only girl who wasn't so hesitant about getting in her destined relationship... and it was about time! Next, and probably more importantly, as a reader, I finally got to see the puzzle coming together. You are given some crucial information about the girls and their abilities. You get to see more about the enemy, who they are (kind of) and what they want (vaguely). As I read it, a light bulb just went off over my head and I finally understood so much. I absolutely cannot WAIT until the next book to see what new puzzle pieces I can find.

    This series is a must for lovers of paranormal and supernatural books. It's shifters with an extra layer of awesome on top. Melissa Haag packs quick whit, romantic hotties and a whirlwind of action to every book. The love stories are a slow paced and believable. So addicting, that you can not help but turn to the next page, just to see the couple's next interaction. The best part, you don't finish the book feeling dumber than you were when you started. (Yes, I have read several books lately that I think took my IQ down a notch or two.) My brain is always full of questions and speculations as to what is going to happen in the next installment. Each book is unique, yet intertwined. If you haven't read the first book, Hope(less) yet, please do yourself a favor and pick it up. By the time you get to the end, you will be craving more.This book is just as phenomenal, if not better, than the first two. I don't like to get into specifics in reviews, because I don't want to give too much away. Those left with questions from the first two will be happy to know that a lot of things start falling into place. We get to see cameos from some of our favorites and meet a few new favorites along the way.This is a series that both teens and adults will enjoy. The intimacy is limited to stolen kisses and flirty touches and yet, leaves you burning for more. Well, maybe there is a bit more in this book, but nothing is detailed out. ;) The characters range from late teens to mid twenties and for the most part, very mature personalities.Write on Melissa! *snicker* You left me in awe and with months of torment until book 4.

    I hate how these books end just as they seem to be getting good. The characters are finally coming together, then POOF, their story is over. As I began this book, with my tbr pile ever growing, I wondered if I was getting tired of this series. But the book picked up and by the end had completely sucked me in. I'm disappointed to learn that the next book doesn't follow chronologically but backtracks to pick up Charlene's story. I was really excited at the prospect of the hero's story with Peace. But I'll have to wait and get thru the next book if I want to get to his story. Anyway, the heroine in this story definitely ages beyond her years. Not quite 18 and she's directing the wolves. I was mildly dissatisfied with the wolves sheepish behavior toward the end, acting like the elders were completely lost and passive. Still, I liked the story, loved the couple.

    Right off the bat I was annoyed over the completely unnecessary "girl kiss". Luckily it never came back into play and was easy to move past. So many things to like about this series but so many things keeping it from being great as well. I wasn't as bothered by unnecessary information in this one. The pace felt more consistent but still had moments where I thought "huh, that large issue resolved itself rather quickly" or "where is she going with this?". I liked Bethi the least of all the leading ladies so far. She is courageous but also a frightened brat, but her personality fits with her age and experiences. Still a little confusing in places but it's all starting to come together.

    A quick read. I've read the first 3 books in the series now & while I don't think they are the best stories ever written, they are unique and enjoyable. I would give each of them a 3.5. Not wonderful, but good enough that I'll work my way through the series to find out what happens.

    I really love stories about werewolves and I like stories about werewolves and their mates even more. It's something about the fact that mates are true loves, fated and have an unbreakable bound, it's the ultimate love. I will be lying if I said that I did want a mate of my own, to have a true true love, that is one of the reasons I love the Judgement of Six series.Hope(less), the first book in the Judgement of Six series, was one of those books and after reading that I feel hard for the series. The world was interesting, the plot was good and different, there was a lot of mystery, some action and not the romance that I expected but a true love that is powerful. I loved Gabby and Clay, there was the pull of being mates but not instalove (although I have no problem with instalove). Because of Clay's stubbornness he and Gabby got to know each other and in turn fall in love.Each book follows a different couple, focuses on their story but also ties into the main story and brings in characters from the previous book. One thing about Melissa is that so far in every story the couples may have the mate pull but they got to know each other before they did anything about that pull. (Un)Wise follows Luke and Bethi and their story is just as interesting and compelling as the others books. Not only does it tie into all the other stories so far but it reveals big truths that were nothing but a bunch of mysteries before this book.The relationship between Luke and Bethi is so funny, I can't go into detail because I don't want to reveal anything. However I can tell you that Bethi has a temper while Luke takes things in stride and they both know how to push the other's button you can tell the care that they start to take with each other. However there are most definitely moments that I couldn't help but smile or laugh because of their reactions to certain situations, for example Mount Fuji and you are just going to have to read in order find out what I mean.I am not going to lie there is a lot of violence mentioned in this book and other things that could be triggers for people so consider this a warning.(Un)Wise was such a good addition to the series there was action, comedy, romance, danger and mystery. That's right I might have had some questions answered but I now have more questions. I loved seeing the characters from the other books and how (Un)Wise ended I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I also will be reading the companion book to this one, Luke's Dream is (Un)Wise told from Luke's pov. Melissa has done this with all the books in the series and it is one of my favorite things ever.

    Christmas Britain from speech to text so please bear with the grammatical errors hated this book in this book the main character is constantly dreaming she dreams until at least halfway through the book before any true plot is created so the first half of the book is just a jumble Mumble of dreams that yes they give you hints to what has happened in the past why they are there but it is all horrible read the second part that upset me was that they discussed making their werewolves selves public to humans personally I really don't like that type of a theme in a werewolf book yes it makes sense for it to be a common theme but to me it gets rid of the mystery and the excitement of being a werewolf or knowing about the werewolves cuz it's a secret thing and that's part it like so to expose them to humans it just reminds me of how make believe it is and how it really isn't that way in this world and so it takes me out of my imagination setting for the book and I love to live in a book did I say I hated this book because I really did even the second half of the book where there is a plot to it it's not that great it's quite boring and then she does end up claiming her man and then they end up at mating but yet there's no details of it I don't know if this is a y a book it must be because there is no sex scene in it fun

    Alright, I'm done. Not going to make it through to book 4, 5, or 6. This one went too far off the rails. This whole book was the main character dreaming/having memories of the past until she meets up with the full pack and then the serious eye rolling starts. This girl is 17 but she pretty much takes everything over and starts giving orders without giving any true answers. She was so annoying. I wanted to say, Damn, just give her to the Urbat (rivals of the werewolves). Poor Luke, he got the short end of the stick when it comes to mates. The ending was the absolute straw that broke the proverbial camel's back. The next book's MCs are introduced and it's a total clusterfrak. I mean the dude changes into his fur right in front of an entire bar full of people and little Bethi from this book thinks its a good idea that they go public anyway. That pretty much turned me off the whole thing. So, I'm going to read the first three books from the dudes' perspectives and see if those are any better, although most chics do not get dude POVs right.

    Words cannot begin to describe my thoughts and feelings on this third addition to the Judgment series, but allow me to give it a try.As of now, Bethi is my all-time favorite Judgment yet. And not just because she has all the answers we have been dying for. Her one-liners are LEGENDARY! She had me aching with sadness one moment and weeping with mirth in the next.“Oh my God, an accent. Take me, I’m yours.”“If you come back in, you better be naked too."“You know, sometimes it helps to name the things you fear. Let’s call the right one Everest and the left one Fuji.”“I’ll get Tinker Bell ready."But my all-time favorite one-liner had to be when Bethi stood her ground against the Urbat and said:"I am the Wisdom of the Judgments and I will not fail again!"Finally reclaiming her life and her destiny. So damn proud of her!!All the questions you have been waiting with bated breath for answers to, Bethi has all those for you and so much more. Bethi is the Judgment who remembers. *tears* And what she remembers might FINALLY save her life and the lives of her sisters this go-around. But they all must unite with one another before the Urbat can claim another of them; They must save Courage from their evil clutches, because without Courage, this battle may be lost before it can even begin.I don't want to touch on this next part for too long, mainly because it annoys the ever-loving FUCK out of me, but for as much as I ADORED Bethi, I COULD NOT STAND Luke. Yes, Yes. I know. He is very near and dear to many readers' hearts, but his arrogance towards Bethi and him consistently being the reason that Bethi had to continue suffering (AND end up having to be the 'bad guy' just to trying to find some peace) pissed me off to no end. This did not effect my enjoyment of THIS book (nor my overall rating), because I chose to allow Bethi's winning personality to overshadow the poorness of her mate's.Overall, I was SO PSYCHED UP for how this book went, and I am so wanting to dive right into book four. And while I do not have the time to get right into it NOW, Winter break is coming, and I intend to enjoy it thoroughly! Highly recommended for all you wolf-lovers out there!!

    I swear to god, Luke pissed me off like shit. That darn wolf wouldn't let Bethi Claim him when she told him several times that this will help her ease those horrible dreams where she experiences painful deaths. But he just won't let her. I get that Claiming should be more abt affection but that dude very well knows that she has strong feelings for him. It's his duty as her Mate to take care of her.But felt bad for him later when Bethi Claimed Joshua. I thought he would be real pissed with her until she explained that you can break a Claim by Claiming someone else. It's funny that although Bethi and Luke had most problems with their relationship, they r among the first ones to actually Claim and Mate. So much is already happening in this book, so I wonder how many more stuff will happen in the rest two books, excluding Emmitt's mom's book of course.

    You know... I am torn on this one. While I enjoy fantasy as much as the next person, I couldn't like this character. I wanted to jump through the book and smack her over her stupid head. She went from weak to strong to naive to smart... too much flipping in personalities for a fictional character. She isn't likable; which is a shame, since I enjoyed the other books.

    I'm not quite understanding the haters reviews, but I loved this book. I don't remember laughing so hard over a book. Crying maybe, but laughter? Definitely not. I really enjoyes Bethi's personality. The series as a whole is unfolding nicely. All those dream sequencing were necessary to reveal the answers to the question that have yet to be answered. On to the next one. 😊

    I am quite enjoying this series; though, after this one, I’ve decided to put it to the side until (Sur)real comes out. Once I get my hands on that... then I’ll finish. 😌 I had a love/hate for this installment though. The back and forth kind of bugged me, but I know it was a necessity for the series.

    I really love this series, and this one answered a lot of the questions I had. I can't wait to read Luke's side of this. What he must have thought at first! I'm excited to read the rest of this fantastic series and would gladly read the rest of what the author has out.
