Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases. This week I am waiting on Possess by Gretchen McNeil. I love demons so I am super excited for this one. And I can't ignore the fact that the cover is super pretty.
Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, by 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. Possess is released on August 23rd 2011. What are you waiting on?
