Girl of Nightmares


Author: Kendare Blake

Title: Girl of Nightmares

Description from goodreads: 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.

My review:

Well Cas is back and he’s seeing Anna everywhere even though she’s in hell. I really liked the earlier chapters of the book, there was a lot of Anna and you desperately wanted to help her. The ghost slaying trio’s relationships towards each other were interesting to watch. It was rather heartwarming actually to see Cas so open.

The chapters in England were interesting, you find out a lot about Cas’s blood-tie to the Athame and the history of the Athame itself. There are a couple of new characters and the one I hate most is Jestine. UGH I JUST WANTED HER TO DIE! I have to congratulate Kendare Blake for that, it demonstrates how vivid her characters are, but god I hated Jestine.

I wasn’t expecting the ending we got at all and it left me a little well shaken. I dunno I didn’t hate the ending not at all but it was very melancholy.

Overall rating: 4/7

Personally I preferred the Mediator Series by Meg Cabot the old covers were cooler but whatever it was a great series
