Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she’s discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases.
When a comatose woman suddenly wakes up and starts painting scenes she’s never witnessed, with a skill she’s never had, medical science has no explanation. As more bizarre phenomena manifest, including strange voices coming from her mouth, even her doctors wonder whether the woman may be possessed.
Frustrated and frightened, the patient’s sister turns to Harper to discover who—or what—is occupying her sister’s body. As Harper digs into the case, she discovers other patients struck with the same mystifying afflictions and a disturbing connection to one of the most gruesome episodes in Washington’s history….
In this penultimate book, Possession is slightly more interesting mystery because the victims are all in vegetative states, and they’re displaying classic possession signs like drawing things and writing things. However, I am still left disappointed. The book spends a lot of time setting up the plot for the next book in the background. Richardson links the plot of this book to the plot of the last book, but it feels so contrived.
I was disappointed in the characters and relationships, too. The author lost ground on the character interactions, they feel worse. They feel like they are creating drama for the sake of drama, not for any reason that she has already established in their personalities. The newer characters that were created for the story were alright. It is just all the established characters that are being molded into new people to fit what the author needs in the finale.
While I enjoyed the possession aspects, I found it difficult to enjoy the whole of the book. In fact, the ending itself left me not even wanting to read the last book, if I’m being honest. I still will read Revenant, but I’m not excited about it. It is a poor way to end a penultimate book. I really hope the last book ends satisfactorily.
