Constance Jerome wants nothing more than to make it through her senior year of high school without being noticed. But when her mother drops the world's biggest bombshell, flying under the radar just isn't in the cards. It turns out Constance is a necromancer—one of the few who can travel the realms of the dead. Apparently it runs in the family. And now there's a threat coming: another necromancer with plans to disturb the living and the dead, and Constance and her mother are the only ones who can stop him. If only they knew who he was. Or what exactly he was up to. A quiet senior year isn't an option, and Constance must race to stop a high school apocalypse before the balance between the living and the dead is overturned.

First I should say that I received this book in exchange for an honest review on ebooksforreview.com. All that Constance honestly wants is to be a normal high school girl. She is already made fun of and teased constantly, so she can’t imagine what would happen if her little secret got out. Constance and her mother are Necromancers, meaning that they can travel to the world of the dead. Other than her parents, no one knows about their ability-with the exception of her best friend Greta. Strange things have been happening around town-vandalism at the cemetery and bodies have been stolen from the graves. Constance’s mother has been working on this mystery for a while but isn’t having any success-she knows that she will need her daughter’s help but refuses to put her in danger. Constance decides to take matters into her own hands. With a strong suspicion that the vandal is another necromancer-she decides to investigate around town and dig for facts in the world of the dead. While Constance is hunting for the dark necromancer-he/she has been hunting Constance. Will she and her mom be able to stop the dark necromancer? Or will he destroy their souls, as he already has done to those who have gotten to close to his/her secrets? This is an excellent read and am so excited to begin book 2 in this series!!!

Constance Jerome is starting her senior year in high school and wants nothing but to quietly get through it. Constance is a loner but thankfully she has Greta, her best friend, to keep her company. As with any high school, Seline is Constance’s nemesis and things don’t get any better when she learns she is tutoring Seth, Seline’s boyfriend. If that is not bad enough, then Constance learns that her mother, Veronica and her are necromancers. The problem is another necromancer is causing problems in the land of the living and it is up to Veronica and Constance to keep everything in place. I can relate to Constance since I was the loner in high school too. I understand how she wants to avoid Seline but it seems that she is always in her sights for bullying. Then there is Seth, he seems like he could be a decent guy when he isn’t under the thumb of Seline. I really enjoyed Constance being a necromancer and how this is a bit different from other people’s stories of necromancers. Although I admit that Veronica clearly never fully learned about her abilities since she could old partially teach Constance and not really explain anything. It was frustrating to read this when there was so much I wanted to know. I really like this story and am excited to see where it goes in book two, Illusion. I received Possession from eBooks for Review for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

Possession (Song and Shadow Book 1) by Annie Oldham is a fantasy teen/young adult story but adults will love this story as much as the young adults, it is terrific! It has magic, adventure, suspense, evil spirits, humor, touch of romance, vampires, zombies, more humor, heartbreak, strength, and danger. I really liked this book! An outcast girl with only one friend, finds out her mom is a necromancer on the side. The town is being vandalized, esp. the cemetery. Things start getting strange around town......and you have to read it your self, this isn't a book report :P. Loved the plot, and wonderful and terrible characters, all well developed and we all know someone like them. I am on to book 2! Received this book to read and am not obligated to leave a review but it is so darn good, had to share the love!

The writing is very visual, without being overly descriptive which I love. Each character had depth, even if you don't realize it right away. I think this was a great start to what seems to me to be a unique and entertaining new series. Possession by Annie Oldham was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
