REVIEW FOR: GIRL OF NIGHTMARES - BY: KENDARE BLAKE

pic and description taken from Amazon.com


DESCRIPTION:

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, pining for her. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare with 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 / THOUGHTS:

Welcome to the second installment of of Anna Dressed in Blood.  Girl of Nightmares does not disappoint as a second installment.  This book was so good.  I listened to this book as well.  It was so hard to quit listening to!

We get to join Cas and his gang of friends as they search for Anna again.  Cas sees Anna everywhere, and cannot seem to get her out of his mind.

Cas is determined to find a way back to Anna and save her from the same spirit that took Cas's father.  The Obia Man (sp?).  The evil that lays in Hell with all the people Cas has sent to where he thought was back to where they came from.

Cas, and his gang embark in a very dangerous journey to get Anna back from the Obia Man.  It is full of danger, suspense, humor and love.  Yup an unlikely love.  It's so fantastic all around.

I love what the author has done with these books.  They are so fun to listen to.  The narrator is awesome, and kept me engaged the whole time.  The story line is so interesting.  I am sure we have all thought about what it would be like to bring someone back from the dead.  (okay, maybe just me...I might be a little crazy ;)!).  This story took me in so many directions and I loved every minute of the ride.

If you like creepy, suspenseful book with a love story.....then this is the series for you.  This book was so much better than the first, in my opinion.  I really enjoy when a series keeps getting better, and doesn't disappoint.

Source:  I bought this book for myself on Audible.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

Content:  There is language in this book....the "f" bomb is dropped quite a few times, but having said that it did not deter me in any way from loving this series as much as I do.

MY RATING:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

So, I write books. Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares are horror, The Goddess War books are mythology, and Sleepwalk Society is contemporary. Different genres, because the world don't move to the beat of just one drum. Love to read, too. Fiction, philosophy, good books, bad books, because you take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have a stack of books and stuff. I mean, you've got to be adventurous. There's more to life that what you're living, so take a chance and face the wind.

There's more coming soon like Slasher Girls and Monster Boys and Ungodly in 2015, so don't waste another minute on your cryin. We're nowhere near the end.

My likes include animals, food, and nostalgia. I mean, whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, the evening TV? Used to be everywhere you look, there's a heart, a hand to hold on to.

Anyway, I love to hear from readers so drop me a line here or at my website and we'll talk about friends to know, and ways to grow, and great authors to be in charge of our days, and our nights.

We can also talk about all the sitcom theme songs in this bio. Sha la la la.
