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.

My Review:

I adore this series, its creepy, amazing and I love Mary and Lacey. This is a series I need to read as soon as I can get my hands on the next book. Possess was a lot creepier and darker than the first one which made it wonderful. I completely loved this book, this is a series I highly recommend.

Mary has grown a lot since the last book, embracing her mission in life of helping aggressive ghosts move one. Lacey is just a great BFF for a ghost, I love how she cares so much for Mary and wants to stay to help her. The story in this book is a lot darker than the first one and it also answers a few questions you have after the first one especially with her mom. The evil in the house was just awful and relentless in wanted to possess Mary. I thought this book has a secondary story that complimented the main story so well. The flashbacks of the little girl in the 1800 gave me the chills and really gave you that creepy you need for the main story.

I can gush all day about this book and the entire series. I had a hard time putting this book down, I also think as it got close to the end I was in a panic over what was happening, just fantastic. If you are looking for a great creepy but amazing read you will love this series. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book to see where it takes Mary and Lacey. Sarah Dalton has such an amazing way of writing a fantastic ghost story, LOVED IT!

    • Yes make sure to read the novella first, The Darkest (something) I can’t remember lol. I know there is another novella that is called SIsters that should be read after this book. Just a great series and I LOVE Mary 🙂

  1. This sounds amazing! I’m adding this series to my TBR. I love all the gothic-y supernatural stuff and I’m a sucker for old houses!

    • It’s a great read the first two books are creepy also, make sure to read the novella first. I think it’s called something Darkness LOL I can’t remember.
