Possessed Rating: 5


Author: Kate Cann

In Possessed by Kate Cann, sixteen year old Rayne needs to get away—away from the crowds of London, from her demanding mother, and from her controlling boyfriend. She finds the perfect job to take her away from it all—a live-in waitress at a quiet country estate called Morton’s Keep. The estate offers her the peace and quiet she’s always wanted. But, of course, no place is perfect. And Morton’s Keep has its fair share of haunting secrets.


A Spooky Place to Stay

When she arrives, Rayne is given the choice between a spooky attic bedroom inside the estate, or a secluded cabin called the Old Sty right next to the woods. Rayne chooses the lesser of two evils: the Sty. But nighttime on the estate is dangerous, and Rayne’s boss, Mrs. Driver, warns her never to leave her door unlocked.


Unusual Friends

Soon Rayne sees the eeriness surrounding the estate, and hears rumors about its haunting past. People say that the walls once ran with blood. Lonely, Rayne makes a new group of friends in town. But they’re an unusual crowd, obsessed with Morton’s Keep’s secrets. She even falls for a boy named St. John, despite the bad things her co-worker says about him.


A Life-altering Decision

Rayne must decide whether to stay at Morton’s Keep and challenge the evils that are resurfacing from the past, or return to the life she happily left behind.


The Bottom Line

Possessed by Kate Cann is impossible to put down. It’s eerie, exciting and suspenseful. You’ll easily relate to Rayne’s need to escape, especially if you’ve experienced big city life and controlling relationships. So if you’re into vampire books, ghost stories or teen paranormal fiction of any sort, you’ll definitely enjoy Possessed.

    More than anything. She's amazing and so gorgeous. I liked her before the movie, though. I liked her when she played in The Secret Life of The American Teenager. Plus she's going to be in the movie 'The Fault In Our Stars'.

But you have the United States Government to thank for that and the law it created.Because that is why our users are suffering. Because of the law that is in place. We wish it didn't have to be that way, trust me. It is awful see words blocked that shouldn't.But we follow the law and always will. Thanks for not locking this thread. It's appreciated.  Nice underline on the word "actual".  I've tried being positive and friendly and have given suggestions this way.  Doesn't work.  I just get ignored and deleted.  Being negative seems to work better so that's what I've been doing.  Oh, and calling me an attention seeker is a smart way to get out of answering my complaints about the P&R section.
