Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was probably the best Star Trek spin-off book I have read so far. It would have made a great episode. The premise of having the crews infected by an alien being is not a new one, but it is well written and makes for a tense and exciting story. Fans of Vulcans will appreciate the Vulcan aspects, and Worf and Deanna feature prominently as well. Although Alexander is in it, he isn't that annoying and you'll probably be pleased to know that Wesley isn't in the story.
I would definitely recommend this story as compulsive reading.

This title of this review isnt what happens to the Enterprise at the end of the book! As the previous reviews says, the end is a bit of a downturn. However much has to be said for the main body of the book. There is a genuine sense of paranoia and anxiousness developing as the author guides you through the corridors of the Enterprise where an entity is determined to take hold. Who do you trust? There are few Star Trek books that i will want to read through in one day, this is not one of them. Picard when he succumbs to the Entity is portrayed quite effectively as terrified. Riker, well you dont notice much difference (still an egotist). Most other characters are just side shows, and once again poor La Forge is left on the sidelines.
The ending is the only let down. Troi seems to revert to the sort of lines we here in the first season of the Star Trek: the Next Generation (the episode with the flying jellyfish - or Encounter at Farpoint).
The rating loses a star because of this, beyond that, this would make good Halloween reading, or those nights when your house is very quite.....

What is a tense and exciting setup is let down by a drippy, cop-out ending. Despite this the authorS do not disappoint, this is a great novel. Even better I didn't pay anything, I won it in a competition!

This book was well written and featured a lot of intrigue. It was original and the plot was very interesting to follow. It was a good read and very entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 7 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was one of the best books that I have read in a long time. I have read a lot of Star Trek books, and this one left most of them in the dust. The summary may not seem that great, but the writing was excellent. Many of the ideas in the book got deeper and deeper until you threw the book away from you in fear that something was going to "get" you. I did that several times, and each time I came back within a minute to finish reading the book. I recommend this book to everyone, especially those with knowledge on Star Trek.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pace, Suspense and HORROR 13 July 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A horror Trek story is not the norm and they pulled it off. I continually was thinking, "This could make a great movie!, This could make a great movie!" Plus the ending was classic. I love the unemotional Vulcan statement....I would share but don't want to spoil it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Three Star Novel Turned Into Five Stars By The Final Line 23 Feb. 2012
By Dayton Lavon Kitchens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Possession is the ST:TNG sequel to the chilling original novel "Demons". That pretty much says it all. The evil force responsible for the death and destruction in the first novel is back. But hardly with a vengeance. In fact, in Possession they seem far more restrained and controlled than in Demons. Plus, the Next Generation crew doesn't seem nearly as well suited to form a good story with them here. Finally, the more mundane explanation given for the creation of the artifacts undermines them considerably.

That all adds up to this being a three star novel.

At best.

But, the last line of the novel is so absolutely ominous, chilling, foreboding, and ultra terrifying that it serves to elevate the novel by fully two stars. When you've forgotten everything else about the novel Possession, the final six words will stick with you and send chills down your spine that do not dissipate easily.

1.0 out of 5 stars A rushed job full of contradictions and repitition. 28 Feb. 2007
By the4thpip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Possession" was evidently written by two women who were having a fight and not talking to each other anymore. You could always count on finding a detail that would contradict something from a previous chapter. One chapter everybody on board goes into a medically induced 36 hour sleep, a few hours later a guard is easily captured because he "has not slept in two days." Hello?? First that new android has eyes that are superior to Data's, then the opposite is true.

And then the authors must have been told by an editor that it was 50 pages too short for a ST novel, so they started adding in redundant sentences and additional adjectives like "he attacked her fiercely and savagely." (or words to that effect).

My favorite sentence went something like "Worf could not imagine that kind of senseless warfare, it was beyond his imagination."

So no, I would not call this well written. It was one of the most painful reading experiences I have ever had. There are much better Star Trek novels out there to spend your money on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you remeber that episode with the Game-eye wear? 15 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is like that but it's not a game, it's little things that get into your mind and feeds off your fears. They try to get more into other people and try to shut off Data. Well Worf and a woman that he is starting to like, Alexander and Deana all save the crew. It's pretty good because you see Picard's basic fear, the Borg.
