Waiting on Wednesday: Possess by Gretchen McNeil

Possess by Gretchen McNeil
Release date: August 23, 2011

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her overprotective mom, by the hunky son of the police officer who got her father killed, and by the eerie voices which she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Turns out the voices are demons--the Biblical kind, not the Buffy kind--and Bridget possesses the rare ability to banish them.

San Francisco's senior exorcist and his newly assigned partner from the Vatican enlist Bridget's help with increasingly bizarre and dangerous cases of demonic possession. But when one of Bridget's oldest friends turns up dead in a ritualistic sacrifice that mirrors her father's murder, Bridget realizes she can't trust anyone. An interview with her father's murderer reveals a link between Bridget and the Emim: a race of part-demons intent on raising their forefathers to the earth in human form. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the Emim's plan before someone else close to her winds up dead, or worse--the human vessel for a Demon King.
I'm not going to lie, for a while, I didn't really know anything about Possess.

Until the cover was released.

This cover is gorgeous and intriguing. I love the blue/teal hues, as well as the shadows of tree branches (if that's what they are). I may purchase this books solely for the cover. And then there's the summary. I for one can't name any other YA books about exorcism. I can't wait to discover the story behind this gorgeous cover.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. Thanks for choosing POSSESS! So glad you love the cover as much as I do!!!

  2. Dude. Demonic possession scares the frickin' A hell out of me. No pun intended. However, I still want to read this. I just might have to throw it across the room a couple times and keep a crucifix close.

  3. Yeah that cover is gorgeous and it would totally make me pick this up. The premise sounds promising too.
