    Annie Oldham s Possession explores the world of necromancy and its importance in helping to shape reality, orspecifically, how it shapes Constance Jerome s reality The concept of necromancy, presented as a form of sorcery used to communicate with the dead, is pretty straightforward, but the practice of the craft, as Constance quickly comes to realise, isn t as easy to wrap the mind around At the age of 17, Constance discovers a disturbing revelation from her mother that turns her world u Annie Oldham s Possession explores the world of necromancy and its importance in helping to shape reality, orspecifically, how it shapes Constance Jerome s reality The concept of necromancy, presented as a form of sorcery used to communicate with the dead, is pretty straightforward, but the practice of the craft, as Constance quickly comes to realise, isn t as easy to wrap the mind around At the age of 17, Constance discovers a disturbing revelation from her mother that turns her world upside down Constance is a necromancer, as is her mother The divide between the living and the dead is one that should always remain separate, and it s the necromancer s job to maintain the balance, but when Constance hears news about someone trying to disturb the natural order of things, she realises the true danger that comes with the job.Posession is a book that ticked many boxes for me There were elements of magic, adventure, the supernatural and suspense The scenes deeply rooted in necromancy, such as Constance and her mum visiting the cemetery and entering Limbo and Constance performing exorcism on her schoolmates, were highly captivating I loved these scenes as they allowed me to engagewith the characters and become obsorbed in their world I really felt as though I was part of the adventure, unraveling things with Constance For me, the topic of necromancy and the way the subject was explored was entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed these scenes.When it came to the ordinary moments in Constance s life, such as her relationship with her parents, her school life and her relationship with the school jock Seth, I often lost interest These moments were somewhat tedious as they were very repetitive Because of the constant reminder of how Constance felt towards Seth, Seline, Greta, her mum, her dad, etc, it almost felt as if every scene was the same scene We were just going around in circles Seth came by a few times for a study session with Constance and it would always go the same way Greta would interract with Seline, Seth s girlfriend and Constance s enemy, and the reaction from Constance would always be the same I get that Constance is judgemental but it became frustrating to see the same scenario time and time again I get it Seline s a mean girl, Seth s a pushover when it comes to his girlfriend, Greta loves attention, Constance is an outcast There was so much focus on these specific elements of the story that the important details suffered greatly For instance, why did Seline steal the candle I didn t get the sense she knew its purpose before she stole it so why take it To her, it was just a candle, wasn t it There were numerous other issues with the plot and characterisation that I questioned Having no explanation for certain things was also disappointing as the topic was so interesting that I really wanted to delve into it Most of the time, the excuse wasn t good enough, that being Constance s mother having not much clue about necromancy as she was never fully informed herself Being Constance s guide, she wasn t very helpful, and considering she s been at the necromancy gig for some time, I found it hard to believe she didn t knowthan was portrayed With certain key elements having no explanation, I had a hard time being convinced by many events that took place over the course of the book I also wasn t very convinced by the reason behind why Seline decided to cause chaos at her school Maybe with a littledepth to her character, I might have been a littlepersuaded Like the character Tiresias said, Such dark power for something so trivial Will mortals never learn Despite my yearning forexplanation, or just an explanation, andfully formed characters, I did enjoy the book I found Constance to be an intriguing, dynamic character She carried the story well There were just certain elements of the plot that neededfocus It was a good read.Readreviews on CBY.Follow CBY Twitter Facebook Tumblr Pinterest Instagram Google Bloglovin

    Possession was a surprisingly delightful read with a solid story and solid characters It even has chapter titles and an individual arc I m really glad I found this book in the midst of my month and a half reading slump I guess what I really needed was a simple and light read.3 stars Possession doesn t throw you immediately into the story, instead, it took a few chapters to build up the mystery surrounding Constance s apparent freakiness but for anyone who has read the summary, it s no Possession was a surprisingly delightful read with a solid story and solid characters It even has chapter titles and an individual arc I m really glad I found this book in the midst of my month and a half reading slump I guess what I really needed was a simple and light read.3 stars Possession doesn t throw you immediately into the story, instead, it took a few chapters to build up the mystery surrounding Constance s apparent freakiness but for anyone who has read the summary, it s no secret, really So those first few chapters were just there to show how normal Constance s family looked on the surface and contribute to some character development but it was rather draggy except for the first chapter which I felt was a really cool and unique opening chapter.Then came the big reveal about Constance s heritage which wasn t as dramatic as I would have liked it to be I want Constance to be stuck in a life or death situation and the mom comes in, kicking ass, and then tells her btw, ur a necromancer welcome to the club Instead, we get them sitting awkwardly at a table where the mom goes you kno, there s thing called a necromancer and you re one btw and Constance is like like in Kyle s her brother video game I actually don t know much about necromancy because it s never really been covered in the ahem Supernatural episodes I ve watched but in here, the lore involves runes, incantation and even a bit of Greek mythology It s rather eye opening but what we ve been given seems to only scratch at the surface I do hope we ll delve intolore in the second book.The characters may seem rather generic at first glance There s the social outcast and her one best friend, the brother who loves to play video games, the school s Queen Bee and the jock that s always hanging off her shoulder However, they each have a characteristic that sets them apart from the cliches they seem to fall in Though they do seem rather unrealistic at times, such as how some of them were so quick to accept the whole necromancy business None of them went what the fuck and had a major freak out session, but it s interesting to note how each of them had a different way of dealing with the information being presented to them.Blog Twitter Tumblr Instagram
