Blog Tour: Possession by @annie_oldham #review #giveaway

Song and Shadow #1
Young Adult Paranormal
Date Published: October 31, 2014

Constance Jerome wants nothing more than to make it through her senior year of high school without being noticed. But when her mother drops the world's biggest bombshell, flying under the radar just isn't in the cards. It turns out Constance is a necromancer—one of the few who can travel the realms of the dead.

Apparently it runs in the family. And now there's a threat coming: another necromancer with plans to disturb the living and the dead, and Constance and her mother are the only ones who can stop him. If only they knew who he was. Or what exactly he was up to. A quiet senior year isn't an option, and Constance must race to stop a high school apocalypse before the balance between the living and the dead is overturned.


This novel is original. Annie Oldham has taken a subject in a genre that is overrun by the same type of novels and made it unique. The idea of Neocromancers was not new to me, but I really liked that it was the focus of this story instead of a side note in a larger story. 

Annie has created a main character who is compelling and easy to relate to and feel for. 

This is just a first in a series and I really love the world that Annie has created. I think she has the start of a great series on her hands. Can't wait to read more. 

Annie adores writing and reading YA novels. She grew up with an insatiable desire to read and then came the insatiable desire to write. Annie has been blessed to have both of those in her life.
Away from her writing, Annie is the mother of the most adorable girls in the world, has the best husband in the world, and lives in the hottest place in the world (not really, but Phoenix sure feels like it). She loves to cook, sing, and play the piano.
