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.This is a frustrating, dark, interesting, compelling, great ending to Anna Dressed in Blood. Yep, it's only 2 books, but a satisfying conclusion to the first book. Hm... I guess you can't tell that I really enjoyed the book. Also, look at that cover, it's amazing!
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.
The frustrating part was intentional. I was frustrated with people telling Cas to let Anna go when you just knew there was something more to what was going on. People who supposedly knew so much would try to stand in his way instead of getting answers they all needed. Still, this whole part built tension that concluded in the ending that was fulfilling.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. You must read these in order (I mean, really there are only 2 books here) but you will not be disappointed with these books. If you like dark YA then you will enjoy your time with Anna and the gang.
