Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
My Thoughts on (Mis)fortune: I hardly know where to start with this review. Well, maybe I'll start with... I adore this series. Book 1 BLEW ME AWAY. I am still so, SO in love with Clay and Gabby's story. (Seriously, guys, SO IN LOVE. I keep thinking I should reread it but then I think the other books will get mad if I show it too much preference. And nobody likes pouty books. NOBODY!) I went into book 2 thinking that if it was even half as good as book 1, I'd be a happy girl.

Well, I'm pleased to say that this book was better than half as good. *nods*

Michelle is downright fragile when we first meet her. She's strung to the breaking point and Emmit's quiet help unnerves her and confuses her simply because after four years of being held prisoner, she's not used to kindness. Finding out what he is on top of the stress of never knowing when Blake or his wolves will appear nearly shatters her. Watching her pick up the pieces and force herself to think things through is tough at times. But she does it.

Emmit is, well, he's in a rough position. He knows what Michelle is to him the first time he lays eyes on her. Yet, he has to stand back and gain her trust slowly so she won't bolt at the first hint that something might be more than it seems. I felt for him. To have his mate so close yet be unable to explain to her what they are to one another has to be a special kind of hell.

Michelle's premonitions give us insight into future characters while leaving us with a whole bucket of questions as to who and what Blake and his wolves are planning. Things are happening and it looks like it's going to get much worse before it gets better.

I'm waiting impatiently for the next installment. I want MOAR! Please.
