[Series Spotlight] - Possessions

I'm no stranger to Nancy Holder's books. I have read quite a few of her Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel books, but wanted to read some of her other stuff. I ended up picking up Possessions.

I recently finished reading both of the books in the Possessions series and I was blown away Both stories are intense, very suspenseful, and on the side being a bit spooky. Plus they have killer cliffhangers that leave you wanting more. I can't wait to read book 3.

Possessions - Book 1

Book Summary:
The It Girl meets The Exorcist in this chilling, haunted boarding school tale

New-girl Lindsay discovers all is not right at the prestigious Marlwood Academy for Girls. Ethereal, popular Mandy and her clique are plotting something dangerous. Lindsay overhears them performing strange rituals, and sees their eyes turn black. It doesn't help that the school itself is totally eerie, with ancient, dilapidated buildings tucked into the Northern California woods, a thick white fog swirling through campus. There are hidden passageways, odd reflections in the windows at night, and scariest of all is the vast lake rumored to have captured the ghost of a girl who drowned many years ago.

What Lindsay doesn't yet realize is that Mandy and her cohorts are becoming possessed by spirits who have haunted the school for two hundred years. Spirits who want someone dead...

And that someone is Lindsay.

The Evil Within - Book 2

Book Summary:
Lindsay finds out that she, too, is possessed, and must return to creepy Marlwood Academy in order to rid herself of the spirit. Lindsay's afraid of what the spirit is telling her to do--kill Mandy! But the secrets of Marlwood go much deeper than Lindsay thought. Sometimes the girls who seem like enemies are actually on your side. And the voices you trust the most--the voices that come from within--are the ones that want you dead.

Book 3 comes out 2011



  1. I wasn't a big fan of the second book. I think maybe because I hadn't read the first book in the series first. Maybe I will have to give this series another chance.

  2. Oh yeah I would definitely say check out the first book. You missed a lot of the story and back story.

  3. Hi Anna!

    I'll add this series to my wishlist, I thought the first book looked excellent, now I need to read it!
