The Possession of Natalie Glasgow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've been meaning to read this for ages, and tonight was the perfect time.

When Margaret goes to the Glasgow house to help a desperate mother, she quickly realises they're up against something very dangerous. So she's determined to figure out why this young girl sleeps all day but rises with the strength of a beast and the carnivorous appetite of a wild animal.

And the closer she examines Natalie, the clearer a strange and violent scenario starts taking shape...

That's all I'm going to say about this very awesome story because the less you know beforehand, the more you'll enjoy it.

I was hooked right away, and it's not just because I'm a sucker for possession/haunted tales. It's because the story drew me in right away and I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed the hell out of every minute of this mystery.

The novella started in the perfect place, led me down a very dark and awful path, and into an outstanding ending. One that made me cry because it was so sad. 😭

There's a LOT to love about Margaret's quest to help figure out what's happening to Natalie, but one of my favourite things was how the suspense dripped off every page. Everything starts out so claustrophobic and feels stale inside the Glasgow house. So when the narrative shifts outside, it was a shock to the system that threw me off balance.

I loved this atmospheric and super creepy novella so much! Of course, I knew I would because Hailey's a great author.
