Synopsis (Goodreads):
I left home because I didn’t want to end up in a cage like a lab rat. Hitching rides, begging for cash, and sleeping on the ground got old fast. That was the only reason I braved an overgrown path to a group of buildings. I’d hoped to find a bed and a decent night’s sleep. However, what I found was a place overrun by werewolves.

While on the run, Charlene finds herself surrounded by werewolves, creatures she can’t control with her mind like she can humans. Their existence has her believing she’s found a safe place to stay, a place where secrets are okay. However, she soon discovers she’s anything but safe. Charlene must learn how to use her abilities to influence the strange new species because if she can’t, the next bite she suffers might just kill her.

Read how the cycle begins, and have no doubt. Charlene’s past will shape the future of the Judgements.
Thoughts on (Un)bidden: I love this series, guys. LOVE IT. Ridiculous amounts. Like, I reread book 1 whenever I'm feeling down and it makes me feel better. Because Gabby and Clay are awesome and their romance is so unbelievably sweet and I always want more when I get to the end of ANY of the books.

This book was no different. I loved it. I loved seeing how Charlene and Thomas found a way to be together. I loved watching Charlene strive to make a difference in the werewolves lives. And I wanted more when I got to the end.

It was very cool to go back and see the beginnings of the werewolves coming together. Charlene's fear and pain over what she perceived as attacks versus the male werewolves desire to claim her in their own way was very telling. That she was able to convince Thomas to try things differently just by explaining her position and what their actions did to her rocked.

I also liked seeing the claiming aspect from another female werewolf's point of view. Mary is a little scared of presenting herself to the males, but she accepts that it has to be done. It isn't until Charlene steps in and begins making demands that Mary sees a different way of doing things. I liked that. I liked that Mary was quick to understand how Charlene's views could change things for the better for herself and all the other females.

Honestly, I adore this series and am ridiculously excited to see where the next installment takes us. There's a war coming and these wolves need to be ready for anything the Urbat will throw at them.
