Summary (from Raincoast Books):
** Contains spoilers if you haven't read Anna Dressed in Blood! **
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.
If you've read my review of Anna Dressed in Blood, then you'll know just how much I loved it! It's probably one of my favourite ghost stories I've ever had the pleasure of reading and I couldn't help but crush on Cas the entire time. The storyline was creepy and suspenseful, but it also had a lot of heart too. I absolutely cannot wait to see how Kendare Blake will continue Cas and Anna's story with the sequel, Girl of Nightmares!
