Reviewed in the United States on June 29, 2016
So so entry of a possession/mental illness psychological horror novel. The dubious nature of "possession" and manipulation is woven throughout the story with a finale that is obvious around mid book. The narrative was well paced, but a few of the main characters were too shallow, or lacked a clear motive for their actions, or became such stereotypes that they devolved in to a parody of themselves. I appreciated the more contemporary approach to a "possession" novel, but the sense of a devilish presence or dreadful atmosphere never materialized because the uncertainty of the real threat was never "fleshed out", or replaced by reflexive storytelling.
