Zengrrl’s Book Review: The Possession by Michael Rutger .. #ThePossession #NetGalley #BookReview

The Possession by Michael Rutger

The Possession by Michael Rutger is the second book in “The Anomaly Files” series, but you don’t need to have read the first book to understand this one.

In this second book, American myth and legend investigator Nolan Moore and his team take on a new mission: investigating a rumored case of witchcraft and possession.

They head to Northern California to check out some mysterious walls that are rumored to be supernatural in nature.

Of all the places to run into Moore’s ex-wife, right?

They all soon get dragged into the mystery of the disappearance of a teenage girl, Alaina Hixon.

Weird unexplainable things begin happening in and around the small town that tie together the walls and Hixon’s disappearance. Then they start seeing what can only be described as ghosts.

But ghosts don’t really exist…do they?

The Possession takes archaeological and historical facts and blends them into an interesting supernatural thriller that reads a bit like a found footage horror movie.

It’s not perfect… some of the plot points feel glossed over, and some of the dialog is a bit clunky. It also took me a bit to learn the characters, so some of the references to the “past mission” didn’t quite click with me. But overall, this is a solid read.

I’d give it a 3.5 out of 5.


NOTE: This book came out in 2019, but I didn’t get a chance to review it right away. My apologies to the publisher.
