Sometimes the past won’t stay buried. In Possessed by Kate Cann, the haunting history of Morton’s Keep estate resurfaces. And sixteen year old Rayne is trapped in the heart of evil.

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.

    Where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids, each one having different strengths, different needs, different gifts, different dream. And then teach the same thing the same way? That's horrific.Curriculums are created by policy makers. Most of which have never taught a day in their life. Just obsessed with standardized tests. They think bubbling in a multiple choice question will determine success.

    The education system isn't there to create intelligent individuals and definitely not there to teach, it is there to create useful pawns for the elites, we are all brainwashed from day one. So yes I think they should change,  but they most likely won't.

    If you are a student in middle through high school these days you might  not feel like you are learning a lot of things that you will use after high school. The truth is, you aren't. Are they teaching you how to obtain money? How about  how to manage a check account? Or how about this are you learning how to handle a job interview in school. No? Maybe you have learned  one of them perhaps if you count elementary, but dude we're way past elementary and ever since the fith grade I aint lean nothing about anything i'l use outside of school since 5th grade. Oh wait, I DID learned something. I learned that half the stuff they teach us are not even on the tests we HAVE TO take. Probably because we should know the information already, but the thing is MOST of us in the U.S don't know half of it or care because it's all useless to us so it has to be re taught again. Some teachers are kind enough to re teach old lessons but  not all do, and I can't believe that i discovered that all it takes to make things right is for a student to confront a teacher in class to ask them to teach me things that we will use in our future, not yesterdays future. If no one does that IN CLASS, IN FRONT of the class. You are just one student, you might save yourself but not the others if you do this alone.. If other unsaved students slow down the class you won't learn a thing. What do you think? about this subject?
