Breaking the Spine. I've been going kind of dark lately and I guess it's because the story I'm working on has a kind of dark edge to it. This week, I want to get my hands on Possess by Gretchen McNeil. Check out the description:
Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, but the cute son of a local police sergeant, and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Unfortunately for Bridget, it turns out the voices are demons – and Bridget has the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from.
Terrified to tell people about her new power, Bridget confides in a local priest who enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession. But just as she is starting to come to terms with her new power, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the demons' plan before someone close to her winds up dead – or worse, the human vessel of a demon king.
I'd like to get an ARC of this one. I don't want to wait, but it looks like I have to...unless I get lucky...*wink, wink*...we'll see. In any case, I'm looking forward to seeing how dark this gets...whenever I get my hands on it!
