This installment of the Fallen Angels series is definitely a game-changer. Jim’s decision to save Sissy has impacted his ability to “play the game” and it leaves Ad and team with dire consequences. It seems that Jim, Sissy and even Devina are now at a crossroads and every decision they make can have a long and lasting impact on how the rest of the war is played out. I can’t even begin to imagine what JR Ward has planned for the continuation of this story. After 5 books I’m still surprised and shocked with how this story is unfolding.
Possession focuses more on Jim Heron and Sissy and less on the soul in question. It was a little different from the previous books but definitely added to the intensity of the story. There is so much more to come with these characters and I can’t wait until the next book. I haven’t been this excited since book 1.
On a technical note, I’m glad the audio team worked out the issues from the previous book. Eric Dove is delicious as ever and I thoroughly enjoyed his narration.

I have read/listened to all of this author's paranormal books & one of her contemporary romances. She never fails, IMO, when it comes to her paranormal books, and this one is no different. You don't have to have read previous Fallen Angels books to enjoy this one, but it's a treat to see the progression of things and then, at the end, to began the anxious process of waiting for the next installment. And the ending prepares the listener well to look forward to the next Fallen Angels book and to wonder when it will end. It can't be much longer unless there's a wrench thrown in the heavenly plan. You have to read the books to know what I mean.
The book has sex in it, but it's not explicit, doesn't use explicit language, and is not gratuitous. And sexual tension and innuendos are also present. But, for some people's taste, it might be too much. So be warned. My opinion is based on comparisons to erotica and books that walk a fine line b/c I listen to plenty of both, as well as general romances. I would place the level of sex herein with sex in some of the romances by Lisa Kleypas, Stephanie Laurens (historical romance), Linda Howard or Sandra Brown.
The book makes total sense. You don't have to suspend complete disbelief--other than buying the paranormal presence in the form of angels & demons--to get it. There is nice suspense as well as romance throughout. And there are no slow times or dull moments, though it's not pulse-pounding either. It's just GOOD through and through. And you don't foresee everything, which is nice, and there's a bit of a surprise near the end, which changes things a bit. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the h acts dumbly during the harrowing incident with her H near the end of the story. It's plausible but dumb. And the narrator is good, but the male voices tend to run together and hard to distinguish sometimes. But he has several to portray. And it doesn't detract from the listen.
Fans of this author will continue to be fans if you listen to his book, and newbies will, likely, jump on board the J.R. Ward fan wagon, the J.R. Ward paranormal fan wagon, that is. Enjoy.
