Melissa Haag's (Un) Bidden ☾Review☽

(Un) Bidden by Melissa Haag

November 24, 2014

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.


When I first began reading I became lost quickly and was worried I was going to hate it. I hadn't read the first books in this series and I believe they are a must to follow what is happening in the first chapter and in the last chapters. That said, once I get past the 1st chapter where it seems to have picked up after the last book, it goes into the past giving you the fantastic story of Thomas and Charlene. I absolutely loved their story, though I felt she handled things a lot better than an average 15 year old would. This made it hard to connect with her until I made her older in my head. I know this is a horrid comparison, but the basics of this story made me think of "A Bugs Life". How one person could bring about great changes as well as cause chaos for those who don't want or like change. 
After reading this book I am definitely going back to read the others. This was a great imaginative story. I want to know more of what was going on. The characters are well written and the story line was consuming. I couldn't stop reading, I had to find out what happened next.

Have you read the first book, Hope(less), in the series? It’s currently FREE!

Gabby's brain is like a human fish finder. It comes in handy when she wants to avoid people. Mostly men. They seem to like her a bit too much. It's lonely being different, but she's adapted to it. Really. She just wishes she knew why she is different, though.

In her search for answers, she discovers a hidden community of werewolves. She immerses herself in their culture, learning about their world until she meets Clay. He's unkempt, prone to mood swings, intense without saying a word, and he thinks Gabby is his.

It's going to take every trick she knows to convince Clay to go away, and every bit of willpower not to fall for him when she discovers the man beneath the rough exterior.

Delve into a riveting world of werewolves and young women with unexplained abilities, in Hope(less).
