Review: After Obsession by Carrie Jones & Steven E. Wedel

After Obsession - Carrie Jones, Steven E. Wedel

I hate to say it, but this book just didn't do it for me. The plot peaked my interest at first... possession and a couple of teenagers attempted an exorcism? I figured it could go horribly wrong or could go hauntingly perfect, right? Either way, I expected either a daunting novel that was a bit scary or one that had it's bumps in the road which smoothed out to a feel-good ending. I received neither. I just really didn't connect with Aimee or Alan on any level. I didn't feel sucked into the story at all.The first half of the book was pretty slow going for me. Nothing really happened besides the day-to-day lives of Aimee and Alan.

There were some things I did like about the book though. The writing flowed nicely and was descriptive, but not over the top. I liked learning about Alan's Native American traditions. I've never really been exposed to the spiritual world of the Native Americans and it really was interesting. Overall, this book was just okay for me. I hate to say that for a book, but there it is.
