Review: Hope(less) (Judgement of the Six #1) by Melissa Haag

Our world is being judged, and we remain unaware.

In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks that fill her mind and represent the people around her, confirm it.

Clueless regarding the reason behind her sight, Gabby struggles to find an explanation. A chance encounter leads her closer to the answers she has struggled to find and into a hidden society where fur is optional. There she meets Clay, the intense werewolf delusional enough to think he has a chance with her.

Gabby escapes back into her old life, but not quite alone. Clay follows her and silently makes a place for himself in her world. As if that isn’t enough to deal with, problems compound when other werewolves, ones with abnormally colored sparks, begin to stalk her.

Instead of gaining answers, her list of questions is growing. What do the other uniquely colored sparks mean? Is she not as alone as she thought?

Judgement has begun...

I love a good PNR. It doesn’t have to be a adult PNR, YA PNR will do me fine if the plot is well written and the characters intrigue me. Hope(less) was one of those books I could not put down.

I was lured in from the beginning with Gabby’s situation. She has quite the interesting talent that I found fascinating. Then of course she gets sucked up into the world of werewolves. Not a original story however, her talent and eventually her unexpected potential mate is what made this story different. Clay I was in love with from the beginning. He doesn’t say a word to her which I myself found just as frustrating as Gabby. And yet, there were moments when I found his actions very powerful that no words could take the place of. I did find it pretty funny that he passes him off as a dog just so he could be closer to Gabby. The slow build up of their relationship is sweet and sometimes comical as Gabby struggles to deal with a mate that won’t speak to her.

The book does end with both a HEA for Gabby and Clay as well as more questions regarding the different colored sparks that Gabby sees. My curiosity is piqued enough and I’m dying to find out what happens next. Things definitely get very interesting which is a obvious build-up to the continuing series. However, I must admit, I think I missed something because the series is called Judgement of the Six. I’m not understand what that is all about. It even says it in the blurb: ‘Our world is being judged, and we remain unaware.’ As much as I enjoyed this book I don’t quite understand what the judging is about. That is the only part I think I don’t understand. That said, I thoroughly loved Hope(less) and this will be a series I will follow.
