Girl of Nightmares -Kendare Blake

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.

** spoiler alert ** This was a brilliant book and a pretty good sequel. I enjoyed all the characters and the twists, nooks and crannies. I got a little bored with the angsty teen bull shit that was in between the awesome creepiness, and Carmel annoyed me, till the end, but it wasn't too bad.

I missed Anna Dressed In Blood, I wish she had more parts, though the parts she was in were excellent. Like always the author weaved a really good tale. It was not as scary as the first one and I enjoyed the way Ms. Blake writes ghosts, I wish there had been more of them.

The Hell Realm that Ms. Blake created was one of the best creepy unending night and torture realms I have seen in a long time. This had dark dementia to it that I truly enjoyed. I would like to see a collection of spooky haunted tales from this author, short stories of Cass and all the ghosts he kills, or even his dad. The author blends the traditional stories of ghosts with urban legends and a smattering of old-school horror story in a priceless way.

Favorite part? Aunt Riika...

Read and Enjoy
