(Un)wise by Melissa Haag


Synopsis:

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…

My Review: 4 Stars

Bethi is a normal teenage girl, going to school, living her life when all the sudden she starts dreaming these horrible, horrible dreams! They are of past lives and they all end the same way... in her death. She wakes up screaming because she not only sees everything but feels it as well. It's like she's there reliving everything over and over again. It gets so bad that she tries extremely hard to stay awake... at any cost. 

When she meets Luke she knows exactly what he is. She doesn't want to have anything to do with him because she thinks that he is just like the other werewolves in her past lives. She knows that they will only torture and use her. For what? She doesn't know but she will do everything she can to figure it out. The dreams mean something but until she can figure it out, she is stuck with trying to stay far away from any werewolves.. if only her heart and tummy will stop doing crazy things whenever Luke is around. And if only Luke would stop being so nice and protecting her. She doesn't really know what to do about him or her growing feelings. Will she realize that Luke is nothing like the other werewolves and is her true mate before it's too late? Can she figure everything else out before she dies... again?

Holy crow Batman! Information overload! This book is packed with A LOT of information! Most of my questions from books 1 and 2 were answered but more arose by the time I finished (Un)wise. I'm still trying to wrap my head around everything! There was literally SO much! So many dreams... memories... pain... anger... frustration... and yes even romance... be prepared for an emotional roller coaster! And do not even try to figure anything out... there are twists and turns that had me shaking my head, scratching my head, asking what?! 

While I am definitely enjoying this series I need to take a short break before delving back in. This book has a lot of flashbacks and since Charlene's book is the next one, I have a feeling it's going to be loaded with even more flashbacks. I usually don't mind all the flashbacks but this was a bit too much for me. I can see why the author did what she did but it was just too much crammed in in my opinion. I would have liked to see some of this information in the earlier books.

And of course I have my casting choices... ;) Hehe.

    1. If you do jump back in remember the series isn't complete yet. There are still 2 more books to go after Charlene's book. Book 5 is supposed to be released this year but not sure about book 6. And I bought these 1 by 1... don't think they are available in a set. And thanks! Casting is definitely my favorite part of reviewing! ;) Hehe.

    1. It really is information overload! Lol. Good book but I wish some of it were put into the other books. Val and I felt the same way! Too much but we're hooked! Lol. And I have been dying to us Sean in a casting! He fit perfectly as Luke! :)
