{Book Review} Possess (Mary Hades #2) by Sarah Dalton

Possess (Mary Hades #2)
by Sarah Dalton
Genre:Fiction-YA: Paranormal
How I got it:received a copy from author

Mary Hades is drawn back into the world of the macabre as she moves with her family into the mysterious old house, Ravenswood. The mere mention of Ravenswood induces terror among the locals, and when strange things begin to occur, Mary and Lacey decide to get to the bottom of the secret hidden in the historic house once and for all.

As a dark power gathers, Mary finds her life becomes interconnected with the disturbing events that transpired in 1847 to eleven year old Liza Blair. The more Mary is drawn into Liza’s story, the more she realises someone close to her is in grave danger from the sinister energy at Ravenswood.

Set in the backdrop of an unsettling forest, and with strange neighbour Emmaline Delacroix obsessed with death and séances, Possess will take you even deeper into the murky depths of Mary Hades’s unusual life.

Book two in the Mary Hades series.

Review: Another great read from Ms Dalton.
When Mary's parents tell her they are moving, Mary is understandably sad. Their new house is old and beautiful, as well as a bit strange. Mary is worried the house is haunted, even though Lacey keeps telling her that it's not. There is also the secondary story of Liza Blair, a young woman whose sister becomes possessed.
In this book Mary seems to have come into her own. I liked how she was more comfortable dealing with the ghosts. The twists in the plot of Possess were surprising and enlightening. The plot was fast paced and kept me reading wanting to know not only what was going to happen to Mary but also Liza.
Overall I enjoyed and found Possess to be an entertaining read.
