The dreams start, and Bethi’s very normal life goes down the toilet. She soon realizes the dreams are actually memories from past lives… and not just hers. She sees the lives of other women like her.
The recalled memories follow the same terrifying pattern: Dog-men chase her, and she sees her eventual tormented death. Learning from the past, Bethi sets out to find a way to live this time around. The dreams hint at an answer.
She needs to be strong enough to find it or die… again.
The dreams start and Bethi’s very normal life goes down the toilet. Reliving past lives, where Dog-men chase her and she sees her eventual tormented death, Bethi sets out to find a way to live this time around. The dreams hint at an answer. She needs to be strong enough to find it, or die… The third installment of the Judgement of the Six answers questions, questions answers, and risks the fate of the world.
As the title suggests, Judgment of the Six is the third installment in the (Un)Wise series.
I ripped through (Mis)Fortune and Hope(less), the first two books in the series, and was royally pissed when the books ended. I wanted more!
What I love best about these books are the strong and gifted young women who have been given special powers. They have not asked for these powers, they just got them! These women are wonderful role models, especially for young women. These young women do not swoon in pain and helplessness over their plight. They struggle and move forward despite their pain, sometimes gritting their teeth in physical as well as emotional pain. Bethi, the heroine in book number three, is desolate over having to leave her home and her mother. Bethi finds herself drawn to the stranger who shows up mysteriously to help her, but she does not faint with puppy-like devotion. Bethi gives him attitude and makes her feelings obvious. The dialogue in Judgment of the Six is sharp, witty, and moves the story along quite well. The characters are well developed and believable. I also like the appendix, which gives more information about the Judgements.
This book ended way too quickly for me–I sat up in bed and yelled out a swear word (good way to keep me hooked, Melissa, and thanks for the author’s note apologizing for this ending).
If you love paranormal books with strong and spunky female characters, like James Ramsey’s Andromeda Rising, you will love Judgement of the Six.
