Synopsis: Includes the stories Posessed and Haunted  

Possessed by P.C. Cast

Being a psychic detective who can channel only negative emotions makes Kent Raef good at catching murderers, but bad at maintaining relationships. Then Lauren Wilcox arrives with a most intriguing case: her twin sister has been murdered and is communing with Lauren's spirit - and sharing her body. Raef's the only one who can track the killer and free the spirit. But soon he begins to wonder just which twin he wants to save...and why...

Haunted by Gena Showalter

Artist Aurora Harper is convinced she's witnessed a crime - a murder so brutal she's repressed the memories, only to paint the scene by the light of the moon. Now she needs her new neighbour, Detective Levi Reid, to help her track down the victim - and the killer. Levi's dealing with his own memory issues, but one thing he knows for sure: Harper is meant to be his, and nothing can take her away from him - not in this life...nor in death…


What it's about: After Moonrise contains two short stories - Possessed and Haunted.

Possessed is about a psychic detective named Kent who sets out to find the killer of Lauren's twin sister Audrey. Audrey has the ability to appear as a ghost, but only Lauren and Kent can see her. Kent begins to have feelings for the sisters, and as the story delves deeper, it's a race to figure out how to save them both.

Haunted is about a girl named Harper who believes she has witnessed a murder, but can only remember through dreams. She enlists the help of her new neighbour Levi to uncover the killer and the victim she could be seeing.


What I thought: Possessed - Was fantastic and completely unexpected! Watching Kent struggle to find the killer, and fast, while dealing with his unexpected feelings for a dead girl, was absolutely fascinating! I felt what they felt, wanting desperately for him to find the killer and help the sisters. Although, a weird sex scene with a dead girl, then one with the dead possessing her alive sister, creeped me out a touch.

Haunted - This story had me guessing until the very end! Nothing is what it seems, and nothing is what you expect! I fell in love with both Levi and Harper, and while I wanted him to catch the killer, I also couldn't help but just egg them on to get together. The fact that this story slightly entwined with Possessed was also fantastically well done!

Two wonderful, while shocking and amazing, short stories from two amazing authors that you just can't miss!
