Girl of Nightmares (Anna #2)
By Kendare Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"If I let go of Anna’s hands, she’ll forget me. She’ll forget everything except what lies across that field. It will all be gone. Her murder, and her curse. She’ll forever live out the life she should have had. The one we might have had together, if everything had been different. This place lies. But it’s a good lie." -Cas
Girl of Nightmaresis the second book in Anna series.Well,first thing first,I have to say thatGirl of Nightmaresis so much better than the first book was.Although I hate to admit that there were times that I got bored and wanted to read something else.
Nevertheless,one would expect Anna to play some major part in this book as well but the truth is that she only comes into the story in the last four or five chapters.Her absence though,has made Cas nostalgic and all he thinks about is her.Hence,some scenes from Anna Dressed in Blood are repeated.
The characters seem to have matured more and thus the story is more believable.For example,Cas is no longer the man a woman would consider a gift to womankind,which is good.In Girl of NightmaresCas is struggling to cope with Anna's loss and there are times that he gets so obsessed with her that his distraction intervenes with his ability to hunt and kill ghosts.Moreover things get also confused for Thomas and Carmen...Not going to say more.
I really liked this book and I can finally say that I'm hapy for Anna that she found the peace she so much more than anyone deserved.I definitely recommend this book to anyone who has previously read the first book in the series.I'm looking forward to reading the following book.If there is any.I hope there is!
It's been months since the ghost of Anna Korlov opened a door to Hell in her basement and disappeared into it, but ghost-hunter Cas Lowood can't move on.
His friends remind him that Anna sacrificed herself so that Cas could live—not walk around half dead. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare to the dead girl he fell in love with.
Now he's seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he's asleep and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong...these aren't just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.
Cas doesn't know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn't deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it's time for him to return the favor.
