Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can’t stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They’re wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it’s neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It’s Alan’s cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.
To be honest.. I didn’t have high hopes for this book. I have not read that many books that could be classified as Horror. So when I read that this book had to do with demonic possession, I prepared myself for disappointment. I was pleasantly surprised. Now keep in mind this isn’t an in your face kind of horror book. I doubt you will be hiding it in your freezer or checking under your bed for the boogyman. But you will fear for the characters and bite your nails in anticipation of what may happen next.
