Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward explores what really happens when good and evil toy with humanity in her new novel of the Fallen Angels....


When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart and lose her inhibitions, she’s unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path. Torn between them, she doesn’t know which to choose—or what kind of dire consequences could follow.


Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil—literally. As yet another soul is unwittingly caught in the battle between him and the demon Devina, his fixation on an innocent trapped in Hell threatens to sidetrack him from his sacred duty....


Can good still prevail if true love makes a savior weak? And will a woman’s future be the key, or the curse, for all of humanity? Only time, and hearts, will tell.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In the fifth installment of J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels, nothing is as simple as it first seems. For the broken-hearted Cait Douglas, finding a new love or at least emotional release should be an effortless chore; after all, not one, but two suitors are waiting. But it isn't. And, meanwhile, fallen angel Jim Heron seems to becoming his own worst enemy as he entangles himself in other people's problems—not to mention a deal with the devil. Romance with some teasingly dark twists.

    My rating: 3.5 out of 5

    Possession is the latest in JR Ward's ultimate battle between good and evil. The creator has become bored and charged Heaven and Hell to a winner-takes-all challenge. At the crux of the challenge is Jim Herron, a fallen angel sent to interact with the chosen souls and to influence their actions into one path or another. Four out of seven souls wins...humanity is in the balance...and thanks to a deal with the devil, the score is tied.

    The Fallen Angel series has been a staple for me ever since Ward premiered it with Covet in 2009, with each installment drawing me deeper and deeper into the overall story arc. As always, Ward spins a good tale, but I just didn't connect with Possession like I did with prior installments. In the previous books the angelic and human story lines intersect and influence the outcome of each battle. In Possession, it's as if we're simultaneously reading two separate books: The Angelic-Jim with his decisions regarding Sissy and the consequences of that decision; and The Human-Cait, Duke, and GB and the relationship between the three (yes there's a mild love-triangle but that is resolved pretty quickly), as well as, the question of whose soul is ultimately in play. Given the way Possession plays out, the direction Ward takes makes perfect sense...what better way to influence an outcome than to distract and misdirect the main players. But that separation turned me off and made me want to smack Team Angel upside the head.

    As much as Team Angel frustrated me, the human side of the story captured my attention and had me turning pages to get back to their story. The relationship between Cait and Duke is immediately combustible, while the acrimonious relationship between Duke and GB is slowly revealed over the course of the book. It's that slow reveal that leaves you wondering just who is this round's soul...it's also a question for Jim once he decides to get his head back in the game.

    Even though it isn't my favorite of the series, Possession marks the start of some major changes in the great battle. Changes that we're going to have to wait for book 6 to find out about. Hopefully they'll be enough to give Team Angel an edge, because there's only two rounds left and they need all the help they can get.

    Possession is the fifth book in the Fallen Angels series by Amer

    Possession is the fifth book in the Fallen Angels series by American author, J.R.Ward. With the score between the evil Devina and the saviour Jim Heron now three souls to one in Jim’s favour, Jim takes the wholly unexpected step of giving away one of his wins to Devina in exchange for the release of Sissy Barten’s soul from Hell. Of course, Jim has not thought through the further ramifications of this drastic action: Archangel Nigel’s shocking action is matched only by Archangel Colin’s reaction; Adrian, meanwhile, is concerned that Jim is ignoring the war in his distraction with Sissy. And the soul in question for the fifth round of the war? Could it be children’s book illustrator, Cait Douglass, who seems torn between her attraction for the charismatic G.B. Holde, and the sexy Duke Phillips? Could it be G.B., singer, composer and actor, who seems perhaps a little too good to be true? Could it be reticent road-worker and Iron Mask bouncer, Duke, who has a past he is unwilling to reveal? As Devina continues to collect trophies and play dirty, she seems to be gaining the upper hand (although her session with Adrian is ironically humorous). She makes a rather intriguing suggestion to Jim, one of several twists in the plot. Sissy, too, is a surprise once she recovers somewhat from her ordeal, both in character and abilities. Fans of Ward’s BDB series will be delighted mentions and cameos of characters from that series. Ward’s characters are engaging, her plot original and her dialogue has its own special appeal. There are plenty of hints and unanswered questions to have fans seeking out the next book in this addictive series, Immortal.

    I gave up on this book,I think (my own personal feelings) that alot of writters are starting to use "ghost writters" because you cant have a bunch of diff. books going at one time and they turn out great everytime, I can tell when someone didnt write a book, the flow of words isnt right,everything in the storyline is wrong or didnt know where the story was going. I know this doesnt make since to read but that is just me..... not a ghost writter.lol

    Diappointed

    This was so disappointing,I still can't believe I paid good money for it. This story was so shallow I could see the end coming a mile off.

    This read like a gimme...a book to fulfill a contract. Very shallow character development. No action scenes to drive the plot. And the one plot twist was so out of left field...it screamed of desperation.

    JR had no storyline so let's throw in lots of stranger sex in hope that the readers would be satisfied.

    Next time I'll wait for the library copy.

    I'm use to a better book by the Warden so I was a little disappointed. It was still a good book but not the usual 5 stars.

    Least favorite in the series

    I will continue reading this series because I absolutlely loved the first four. I found this book to be slow and boring, unlike the others. The story just kept dragging on without anything really happening.

    Jim better get on the danged ball and fight for Sissy!!!

    I'm getting more and more pissed at Jim with each book. I wish he'd wake up already! Sissy seems like she's the one that'll heal him if he'd just get over himself already. Would love to see a love interest for Adrian too and have Eddie come back to life. Was shocked at Nigel's death...man o man, these last books I'm hoping have the ending we're probably all cheering for!

    Good but not great

    Not the best of the series, but I still read it rather fast after swallowing the horrid hairdresser dialog.

    Meh...not so much

    I'll have to say that this has been my least favorite book of the series thus far. The storyline was too slow. Jim Herron's character waned. He wasn't his usual rough, tough, and tumble guy in this book nor was Ad. It's not the Warden's best piece of work. I'll reserve that for the brothers as I am a loyal fan of all things BDB

    Disappointed

    One of my fav Authors. But this series took a sad and confussing path. Jim Heron is becoming an annoying sap. I will read the next one in hopes of a happy ending.

    Icy Beta Application

    "When I was in LostPack my dad had to choose Star, Lili, or I for beta. I stared at him with puppy dog eyes and he said 'Beta is Icy!'" She paused. "Plus Im a female and know what to do betawise. A beta organizes hunting, and border patrols a beta tries their best to keep their pack in a smooth path, not a rocky path." She left out a breath. "I behave really kindly and I will only goof off when the Alpha does. When I fight you will see me risking my life, swiftly moving, and helping my pack. I hope I'm chosen. Thanks." She smiled and padded out.
