GHBT- Possess Saga by J.A. Howell Reviews Blast- 'The Untimely Death of Brody Walsh' -Mel's Review

The Untimely Death of Brody Walsh
The Possess Saga # 2
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

Brody Walsh’s life is left in disarray when his girlfriend is found brutally raped and murdered. But it completely shatters when his best friend, Nolan is arrested for the crime.

Even as the media is portraying him as a monster, Brody knows Nolan isn’t capable of murder.

That leaves the question: Who is?

Once the trial begins, Brody discovers just how little he knew about his girlfriend, spurring him to dig into her past for possible answers. And as Aggie, his long time confidant and childhood crush, stands by his side through all of this, he finds his own past resurfacing when his feelings for her reignite. But as the media and the prosecutors close in on Nolan, ready to convict him for a crime he didn’t commit, Brody will be forced to make a choice.

A choice that will lead to his untimely death.
Mel's Review-

The Untimely Death of Brody Walsh is the second book in the Possess Saga by J.A. Howell. This is actually more of a novella compared to the other installments, and I'm so glad the author wrote it. It was nice to have the blanks filled in from book 1 and to learn more about Brody since he's so central to the story even though he's no longer among the living. This book was an excellent addition to the series. 

The story is told mostly from the point of view of Brody Walsh, best friend of  both Nolan & Aggie from Possess and it details the last bit of his life. It isn't pretty, frankly. Brody's girlfriend, Claire turns up murdered and it just gets worse from there. Brody's life is in shambles and he sets out to find answers--answers that wind up getting him killed. This book seriously broke my heart into tiny little pieces. Poor Aggie and poor Brody and poor Nolan and just poor everyone. All the awfulness belongs to this book. But it was fantastic. And essential to the overall series, in my opinion. Many kudos to J.A. Howell for writing it. 

My Rating- 

About the Author-
J.A Howell is an office drone by day, and a writer by night. Her love of writing took off when she was eleven years old and decided to fill a composition notebook with stories to read to her friends. Many years (and notebooks) later, not much has changed. She still loves writing and sharing her works with others. When she isn’t writing, she can often be found trying her hand at whatever artistic pursuit strikes her fancy. J.A. Howell resides in Apopka, FL with her husband and their menagerie of animal children.
