This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [Sooooo I am finding out that Emily is supposed to be from a African tribe but her mother is Caucasian in the book and they reference her darker skin tone from time to time. Is Em a olive complexion or is she supposed to be a darker complexion? I only ask because I was assuming the character on the front of the first and second book were representing her and if so it's a poor representation.

Possession brings us largely the same as The Medium in that Emily must investigate this strange ghostly possession and then race against time to overcome a villain who keeps slipping out of her hands. Emily now has two real-life gentlemen protectors who love her, so what does she need that brooding, annoying ghost for?

Sometimes it feels a little bit dragging. Jan 27, Ellana Thornton-Wheybrew rated it really liked it Shelves: female-author , ebooks-i-own , 24in This is charming and tragic all at once. More of a 2. Emily's story continues with her attempt to track down Jacob's killer. But she has to switch gears when she discovers that some other medium has brought a nasty ghost back from the dead to possess people.
Again, we've got an fascinating story, but it suffers from the same issues as the first book in the series.

Emily spends as much time moping over her impression that Jacob doesn't love her after all as she did swooning over his hot but ghostly body in the first book.
Then there's those Victorian society rules again: the various characters' terrible behavior under the influence of the ghost would not be ignored or excused or hand-waved away as "illness. Inevitably, she allows herself to be distracted by some other issue in almost every conversation she has. Likewise, she wastes good opportunities to banish the evil ghost as a result of pointless distraction. My patience with Emily in this book wore very thin indeed. I was still interested enough to buy the third book, but View 1 comment. A little girl summons an evil spirit into Emily Chambers friend and Jacobs sister , Adelaide.

The spirit then transfers our of her body to Wallace, a male member of the upper classes, and goes to have some "fun". But who is the master behind the scheme? And who is the little girl and where can they find her? This was a wonderfu A little girl summons an evil spirit into Emily Chambers friend and Jacobs sister , Adelaide. This was a wonderful instalment and I felt that it was a much more developed story than book one.
The progress happened at a much more natural pace along with the relationship between Emily and Jacob. Theo's addition was a wonderful sideline to the romantic aspect of the story. The possession was very entertaining. I like that Jacobs story is intertwined with the mystery. I really enjoy Archer's historical perspective. The reader gets a fairly good picture of the city in that time period, and an even better idea about the social structure and customs.

I feel like the author did a great job of growing the conflict between Emily and Jacob, the characters seemed to be really working through things this book, unlike the first where their relationship I really enjoy Archer's historical perspective. I feel like the author did a great job of growing the conflict between Emily and Jacob, the characters seemed to be really working through things this book, unlike the first where their relationship conflict seemed more superficial. I am eager to see what happens with Emily and Jacob in the third installment in the trilogy, and also eager to see what happens with Theo and Cara, the new characters introduced in this book.
A love triangle! Knew it would come. But, in all seriousness, I did quite like this second novel, more so than the first one since the action is much more present while the whole relationship takes a slight step back. One thing it does very well is keeps me guessing as to the identity of the villain. I will, I believe, greatly like the next instalment of this series. This was short with a lot happening in it. I enjoyed the mystery and intrigue, but sadly the fast-pace of all the infatuations and romance was a little annoying and a bit over-the-top. A quick, fast listen. Looking forward to the next one.
In this second installment there is a demon on the loose able to possess people that Emily and Jacob have to stop. This book was hilarious, especially how George reacted through the whole thing. I was a little less enchanted with Jacob in this one but overall I am still rooting for him, even though he is dead. I really want to find out who is after Jacob!
Liking this trilogy but still don't know if the girl gets her spirit or her man! Also Paranormal "bad guys" are almost always more fun than their human counterparts. The new characters fit right in and the action is steady. Can't wait to read 3. I have a feeling I'll be sad to see these characters leave at the end of the book Great series They is definitely a great series and worth reading.
Jul 22, Andrea rated it it was ok Shelves: ya-fantasy , read-in , ya-horror. The second book takes place shortly after the first. Emily Chambers, spirit medium, is at home with her sister when she gets a social call from Jacob Beaufort's mother and sister. They have come to ask Emily to summon Jacob. They want to ask him about his death because they want to find his body.
Jacob doesn't want to help them find his body because it might not be safe for them. Them something strange happens, Jacob's sister starts acting strangely. It soon becomes apparent that she is possessed The second book takes place shortly after the first. It soon becomes apparent that she is possessed. Unfortunately the ghost that is possessing her was a terrible murder and he is now jumping from body to body causing problems and quite probably murdering again. With Jacob's help, Emily is able to discover what is going on. Unfortunately this book didn't have anything new for me.
The mystery of Jacob's death was not solved nor were any clues even given towards it's solution. That was actually really annoying. The puzzle of Emily's father was solved and deepened. The ghost possession was nothing new but was quite terrible to read about.
Finally, Jacob and Emily's relationship was just as tragic and unfortunate as in the first novel. This book really felt like a filler for the third installment. Truly, I hate it when trilogies do not use the middle book effectively. It needs to provide vital information that allows the final book to happen. Not a book with an interesting plot meant to keep readers interested and remembering the first book.

Archer via Tantor Audio in exchange for a honest and unbiased review - Rating: 4. Possession by C. Archer was so good, but I don't necessarily think it completely had to do with the actual story. As soon as I hit play on this audiobook I knew I was going to be in for a thrilling yet entertaining ride. Gemma Dawson's narration of this series, or what I've read of it so far, has seriously become a highlight.
Fantasy stories cen - Disclaimer: I received Possession by C. Fantasy stories centered around medium and spirits aren't really my forte, unless you're talking about early Anita Blake books, but the historical elements and the writing of this series has done its job of capturing my attention. The one thing I would somewhat like to change about this series is the age group of characters and sometimes villain, as is the case for Possession.
Possession (Emily Chambers Spirit Medium #2) by C.J. Archer
I sometimes don't mind reading about young adult, or just young, characters but when it comes to subjects and themes in certain genres I feel that the delivery is better when it contains an older crowd. This series has really been a shocker seeing as I never heard of this author nor this narrator before. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in this series and I can't wait to see what else Archer publishes.
