Review: Girl Of Nightmares By: Kendare Blake

Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2)Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The continuation of Anna Dressed in Blood, makes one wonder why add to a great story as a series?

Cas is back and with visions of Anna on the other side, in a hell where the Obeahman is there leaves him no choice but to find a way to save her. Carmel and Thomas help as only they can, one not keen on bringing Anna back and the other helping his best friend.
Enter the secret order - The Order of Biodag Dubh, the keepers and creators of the athame. They don't agree with what Cas has been doing, picking and choosing which ghosts need to move on, they believe that all should be given the gift of the athame's blade.
Cas, Carmel, and Thomas fly to England to meet up with Gideon and Cas' replacement chosen by the Order, Jestine.

With trials and secret rituals, is Cas able to save Anna and those around him, will the Order succeed in his destruction?

I forced myself to read this all the way through, it lacked the intesity and overall enjoyment that Anna Dressed In Blood had. This time I found that even the characters lost dimension. Not worth destroying the image created by the first book, save this one for when there is nothing else to read.
