I won this book from the #TaggedPOSSESSION twitter giveaway via Beth Revis (lovely author of Across the Universe) and I'm glad I did.  I had heard so many great things about this book and I'm really glad I got to read it, although due to unforeseen circumstances it took me longer then it should have to actually finish it.  Possession was a lot of fun, a good dystopian book with a mix of crazy laws, lots of advanced technology, and that one boy (or maybe two) that makes you go *swoon*.  Elana really comes out with a bang and although the ending made me go "NO, YOU DID NOT JUST DO THAT!!!" it was still a good book and it had that nice air of refreshing book to it.  I really enjoyed the characters, Vi and Jag were so much fun and all of the tech was fascinating.  I do have to say that the world of Possession is not one that I would want to live in, but it was a good one to read about.  The action starts off right away and you're pretty much thrown into the story without much explanation, but in some way I think this works better then having all of the back story because that could have been really boring.  Definitely not a regular dystopic novel I'm pleased that I got a chance to read this book and if you liked Matched, Delirium, or The Hunger Games I think you would really enjoy this book.  It's also a great read if you're looking for something just a little different that still has that boy you can drool over and that girl with the special ability who could one day rule the new world she lives in. Originating and fascinating I'm pleased that this book made it through to printing and I can't wait to read the second installment of this series, even if it is a companion novel and not a true sequel.  Also, there better be more of Vi in the companion novel or I might have to hunt down Elana and eat her.
