The Possession
The Possession | Michael Rutger
THEY CAME LOOKING FOR ANSWERS A group of explorers arrive in the remote town of Birchlake, Northern California, to investigate the appearance of mysterious stone walls. WHAT THEY FOUND WERE QUESTIONS A teenage girl has disappeared without a trace. FOR NOT EVERYONE IS AS THEY SEEM Soon it becomes clear that the two events may be connected in the most terrifying way. Because sometimes the walls we build end up closing us in . . . Praise for THE ANOMALY: 'Gripping, exciting, page-turning fun. I suspect Michael Crichton would have been happy to put his name to it' John Connolly 'Crackles with claustrophobic tension that had me holding my breath. I couldn't sleep until I'd finished reading, and then I couldn't sleep just thinking about it' Sarah Pinborough, bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES 'Brilliant. Thrilling, tense, dark, funny. Michael Crichton meets Indiana Jones' C. J. Tudor, author of THE CHALK MAN

Mehso-so

This book was at times very spooky and atmospheric and at other times it left me shaking my head. It was a page turner but I'm not sure how I feel after finishing it. A spine tingler for sure but also mind bending at times.

This book‘s plot was all over the place and ultimately the ending left me indifferent. A bummer since I liked the first book so much but this didn‘t leaving me wanting a third.

Creepy and very different. This has a slow build but I enjoy that.

Your attention please - The Anomaly had a sequel published a few months ago! I had no idea! It was a super fun Indiana Jones meets History Channel conspiracy shows scifi thriller #botm pick a few years ago. I can't believe I missed the news that the sequel was released! They did some hardcore rebranding of the books (to...horror?? 🤷). So hopefully this isn't too scary for me! 😬🤣 Has anyone read either book?

TheLibrarian Oooo I didn‘t know their was a sequel either! Definitely will be checking it out. 3y

Like Scooby Doo for adults!
The Possession by Michel Rutger is the sequel to my favorite book of last year! The series is called The Anomaly Files.
I enjoyed this read a lot. It took me awhile because I basically only read it at nighttime to add to the spooky vibes! This would make a great October read! I missed the characters so much waiting for this sequel, and now I‘m ready for a 3rd book! Micheal Rutger better be staying busy!! 🖤👻🔮

BookBumming Sorry for the late post! I‘ve been super busy! My baby girl was born a month ago and she had to have heart surgery! 3y

Not as good as “The Anomaly” but still a page turner. It could have benefitted from some additional editing and cutting, but it was a good atmospheric read. Rutger is an auto-buy author for sure.

“The Anomaly” was one of the best books I read last year. I‘m so excited to read the sequel! The library hold list for this one was surprisingly short 😍

j9brown Oh cool, didn't know there was going to be a sequel! 3y

Having recently read Sager's latest, Tudor's The Hiding Place, Wesolowski's The Changeling & now Rutger's latest, I've been on something of a paranormal thriller kick lately. A follow up book to last year's Anomaly Files (one of the books that surprised me the most of '18), Rutger's latest follows the characters to a small town in California ostensibly due to mysterious walls. There's a strange disappearance & even more unusual noises. Rutger 👇

vivastory barely squeaks by a pick. The complete absence of mentioning events in the first book is bizarre. While I appreciate Rutger not using the events of book 1 as story filler, they were so momentous you'd expect more than the passing mention in the book. The action towards the final third veers of into strange territory. Listen, if there's a train to crazytown I will be by first on board with my 🍌👖. But, it is hastily executed here. I'm giving 👇 3y
vivastory this a pick because I did enjoy the first 2/3, especially the first one half & if he publishes more in this series, I will definitely be checking them out. This one could have benefited from a better editor IMHO. 3y

My favorite book of 2018.. was actually the first of a new series! “The Anomaly Files”! I‘ve waited a little over a year for book #2 and here it is! Delivered on its release date courtesy of preordering.. The Possession!! I think I‘ll start it ASAP. 🖤 #theanomaly #theanomalyfiles

BookBumming The Possession synopsis; Still recovering from the shocking revelations they uncovered deep in uncharted territory in the Grand Canyon, American myth and legend investigator Nolan Moore and his team take on a new mission, investigating a rumored case of witchcraft and possession. 🔮👻

BookBumming Nolan hopes their new case, in a quaint village in the middle of the woods, will prove much more like those he and his team investigated prior to their trip to Kincaid's cavern. (Without merit)

But as the residents accounts of strange phenomena add up, Nolan and company begin to suspect something all too real and dangerous may be at play. A force that may not be willing to let them escape the village unscathed.”
