Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Ava Ehde
Lindsay is forced to fight for her sanity when she has to return to the exclusive but sinister Marlwood Academy and all her former enemies in this haunting sequel novel of possession. She's already suffered the loss of her mother, as well as all the family finances due to her prolonged illness, watched another student, Kiyoko, die, and lived through her own nervous breakdown. Now she must pull herself together to fend off the spirit of Celia, another long-dead student. Marlwood initially had been a reform school so intent upon turning out "gentle women" that the director often had a doctor perform experimental lobotomies to make the girls more pliable. A deadly fire nearly a decade before left many troubled, often evil, spirits. In addition, her status as a scholarship student often makes Lindsay a target for the other wealthy and frequently spoiled students. Mandy, possessed by Belle, is both her tormentor and a longtime girlfriend of Troy, who has recently been hitting on Lindsay. This eerie, chilling tale is unusually well-written and hits its mark. The characters are alternately sympathetic and scary, and the two sets of love triangles between Troy, Mandy, and Lindsay, as well as the ghostly David, Belle, and Celia, deepen the depth and layers of this tale. The topic is timely and popular; teens will line up for it as a pleasure read. Reviewer: Ava Ehde

    Reviewed by Kira M for Teens Read Too

    Gold Star Award Winner! After defeating the evil at Marlwood Academy, Lindsey finds herself the victim of an unwanted possession by one of the school's ghosts. Forced to head back to the school to which she swore she'd never return, Lindsey will fight for her life and her sanity. To be victorious, she will need to discover deep, hidden secrets within the school that many want to keep buried - including the evil within. Can Lindsey save her school, the students, and most of all herself? A great novel for older reluctant readers. The characters are well-developed, and the plot is intense and very unnerving. Not to be read at night by the faint of heart, those who enjoy horror, paranormal, ghosts, and demons will love reading THE EVIL WITHIN after they have read POSSESSIONS.

    To any tom who wants their own shecat slave

    I am CrossedFlame. I am going to be mating with BeamingStar tomorrow, and so I have to get rid of my other seven mates/slaves. I am giving them to anyone who wants them. You can do anything you want to them, do your worst. They are all shecats and are only a little older than kits, which makes it especially fun to use them. They are at flame result one. There will be a description of them there. Do your worst, but don't tell BeamingStar!

    I enter casually, looking around. I notice that only one cat is here, and glance at the shadows. "Darkness, result two." I mutter, then pad out. When I'm out of the camp's view, I break into a sprint.
