Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake takes place a few months after Anna Dressed in Blood ends. We rejoin our favorite trio, Cas, Carmel and Thomas as they try to figure out what Hell Anna has disappeared to at the end of the last book. Cas knows it's not a good place, and sees nightmarish visions of what is happening to Anna. His hunt to find her leads them abroad, and on their journey, they meet new friends, new enemies, and new adventures.
Anna Dressed in Blood was, if not my favorite read of the year, pretty darn close to it. So Girl of Nightmares had a lot to live up to. Just keep in mind as you read this review that I had very high expectations for this book. While still very well written with that same wonderful dark humor and gothic feel, it's not as strong as the first book. The reason I say this is because for most of the book, I am waiting for things to happen, and most of all, waiting for Anna, my favorite character from the last book, to make her grand entrance. Unfortunately, don't expect to see her much in this book. If I had realized that to begin with, I think I might have come away less disappointed.
That said, I still blazed through the book, and I completely love Blake's sense of humor, and I found myself laughing out loud multiple times throughout the book. I love the world she has created, and her female characters still pop with more energy and sass than any other ones I have seen recently. I love the three dimensionality of all the characters. Plus, Anna does get her moment, at last, and I have to say that it was a beautiful reunion.
Blake is super talented, and I know I'll be watching out for her books in the future. This book is still a must read, as it closes the curtain on a story that is properly finished in a worthy climax.
There were great things about this book- the characters feel real and have great-equally charming personalities. There is a dash of mystery and a sort-of questioning motives of each character, which is nice and kept the plot moving, but overall I felt a little underwhelmed after reading ALL the glowing reviews.
I like the pace of the book. There are no, what I like to call, extra or fillers in this book, which is nice. I enjoyed the different settings of the book as well, I mean anytime the characters go on an adventure, usually one of two tings happen: 1- the author spends way too much time talking about how different everything is or the fact that the trees are blooming (seriously some books include this) or 1- the entire purpose of the adventure has no real purpose and is used to bring certain characters together (thinking 'Sweet Evil'). Here, the adventure happens well into the book and is actually vital to the story. It was nice that the author used adventure in her book instead of the adventure ruining the book.
I love Cas. I mean he is such a great male lead. He is kind and all he wants is to save the girl he loves- but not in the overly-done, I cannot life without you, I may perish route. I found that his motives to save Anna are not solely individual, but he has a good reason that extends beyong himself. It was refreshing to have him and I liked his wit, regardless of the f bombs he drops.Read more ›
Six months after the ghost of Anna Korlov saved Cas and his friends by opening a door to Hell and dragging herself and the deadly Obeahman into it, Cas just can't seem to let her go. Despite Thomas and Carmel's efforts to get him to join the world of the living, Cas's heart remains with the dead. And when he starts to see and hear Anna, both in his nightmares and when he's awake, Cas knows something is wrong. Anna seems tortured and in pain and Cas is afraid her spirit didn't end up where it should have. Cas's desperate search for a way to help Anna takes him and his friends on a dangerous journey across the ocean where a mysterious Order, old and new friends and maybe even Hell await them.
The story of ghost-hunting, athame weidling Cas Lowood and the fiery, captivating ghost-girl he loves, returns with a bang, punch and kick. All of Kendare Blake's razor sharp, smart writing; mastery of chills and thrills; superb world-building and character development and enthralling imagination from the first book seamlessly continue in this sequel. Girl of Nightmares easily matches its predecessor when it comes to addicting storytelling, yet this sequel has a very different feel and vibe from Anna Dressed in Blood...which, isn't a bad thing.Read more ›
