In After Obsession (which can you read for a limited time on Figment), Aimee and Alan have a lot on their plates. They each have secrets they can’t share with anyone, a sinking feeling they’re being haunted, and to top it all off, Alan’s cousin Courtney has been possessed by a demon. To save their friend, Aimee and Alan bravely team up to battle the demon head-on. But hellspawn warfare isn’t the only interesting thing about this book. Its authors joined forces, too: Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel wrote After Obsession together, each of them taking turns writing chapters. (Carrie wrote from Aimee’s perspective, Steven from Alan’s.)
