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.
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.
