Publisher's Summary

#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, as the salvation of a doomed soul depends once again on a crossroads....

When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart, throw off her inhibitions, and start really living, 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.

    "Unfortunately Going Down Hill--Books 1-3 are Best!"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is okay, but his female voices are getting even worse. He makes them all sound like 11 year old boys. And he's also making Jim sound like Adrian too much. (Get it together and focus Eric.)

    The storyline of the Soul in question in this book is very good (and super hot).
    BUT there is WAY too much Jim and Sissy in between. That storyline was always boring, and now it's becoming distasteful. She's a virginal 19 and he's a whoring 40. It started with him feeling badly for her in a father-daughter kind of way. So that just makes where they're heading even more pedo-ish. (And the fact that the narrator makes her sound like a whiny little kid doesn't help.)

    And BTW, why don't they bury Eddie's body already? Or bring him back to life or whatever. All the "guarding" and carrying him around like luggage is getting a little weird too...

    :-)

    "Great series! Keep 'em coming!!"

    I picked this series because of how much I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. The quality of the narrator is extremely important to me & Eric Dove nailed it on this series. I love the struggle between good & evil - even when good doesn't always win. Looking forward to the next book!

    "Best Book So Far in Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    I love this series, and each book in the series is better than the last one. I had no idea where the plot was heading until J.R. Ward decided to let her readers in on the secret. And the plot twist - never saw that one coming.
    Eric Dove is way up near the top of my Top 10 narrators. He does an outstanding job narrating. He is Jim Herron.

    "Not sure about this one"

    I can honestly say this was my least favorite book in the series. It's going to make me seriously read reviews before purchasing a Book 6.

    I liked the characters but Jim was just too out there for me this round. I'm glad Sissy's character was involved matter of fact she had more balls then him in this one.

    "Another great tale from J.R. Ward!!"
    What did you love best about Possession?

    I loved the fact that this go round with the war betweeen good and evil wasn't all about the hearts and flowers. The budding romance was there and of course the dynamic between the Duke and Cait was SMOKIN HOTT!! But there was much more balance to the way the story played out than in the previous books. And there are some real " DID NOT SEE THAT COMING" moments throughout the entire story. You are given the chance to see the evolution of each character. I also liked that all character POV's were well presented and better balanced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that we get to know Adrian on a little more personal level. I've always wanted to see him play a bigger part in the story. Not just be the buttholle "go to" guy. And I can clearly see his role expanding as the series goes on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Cissy walks in on Adrian mourning over Eddie


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I am soooo done with the whole Jim/Divina thing, I think its been done too many times through out the series. And I really REALLY wish the author would get to the point about the reason they are just keeping Eddie wrapped up in the attic.....I mean seriously...there had better be a darn good plot twist coming from that.

    "Finally, Hate Waiting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great series. Narration is great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hate to admit it but I live Davina and Adrain makes me laugh every time.


    Which character – as performed by Eric Dove – was your favorite?

    Adrain and all the Arch Angel voices


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end got me. I love the love story.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not hooked at the beginning like all the others but towards the end it got me. Can't wait until the next. Hope we don't have to wait as long!

    "First Time!"
    Where does Possession rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my first time listening to an audiobook and I was completely blown away! I'm already familiar with the author and I love JR Ward so the story was great and that was no surprise. The narrator was a-maz-ing! I didn't know if I was going to like listening to someone else tell the story but he did a terrific job of acting out the different characters and pulling me into the story. I will definitely listen to another audiobook by Eric Dove! Loved IT!!!

    "Thank you J.R. Ward! You have done it again!"
    If you could sum up Possession in three words, what would they be?

    Intense, emotional, epic


    What other book might you compare Possession to and why?

    Well duh, BDB of course!


    What does Eric Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Eric Dove, you could read the phone book and I would listen!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of the above!


    Any additional comments?

    Wow! J.R. Ward NEVER disappoints! Fallen Angel’s series is really stepping it up a notch!
    I just can’t get enough of Devina. The devil has OCD issues… who knew?!!! I can’t tell you how much I am in love with the fact that Devina has OCD. It’s hysterical! I can’t get enough of Jim and Adrian giving her hell (pun intended). I love hating Devina.
    Jim. Oh my sweet lovely Jim. How I wish I was your Sissy! I can’t wait to see how Sissy and Jim’s relationship grows. I’ve seen numerous readers complain about the age difference. But seriously, Sissy is of legal age and has been in hell. So she’s probably like 30-35 as far as maturity. And either way, she’s legal. Mark my words: Jim and Sissy’s love story is going to be epic! But Jim, you need to get your s*** together because the team needs you!
    I can’t wait to see what happens with Adrian in future stories. He is a true friend to Jim and Sissy. I’m glad he’s able to still be supportive after losing Eddie.
    The ending left me feeling unfulfilled but that’s what happens in a series. Each book gets more and more intense and I’m thoroughly enjoying this emotional rollercoaster that Ward has put us on!
    Shout out to Eric Dove, the narrator for the audiobook version. You could read the phone book and I would listen!
