Great Characters, FABULOUS Ghost (for the most part), and Decent Plot
on December 18, 2014
I had been eyeing this book for months before I finally made the plunge to buy it. Please do not look at this rating and think that I did not enjoy the book, because I truly did! I loved Cas. I thought he and his mother were absolutely fantastic, and the cat... if there was ever a cat I would want, it would totally be this one! He is such a total jerk, but he was absolutely adorable.
Anna was beyond words. The scene where she was first introduced was positively epic. It was jaw dropping and wonderful. I loved this BAMF ghost who just kicks the crap out of everyone... and you know rips them apart. I loved that about her! She was awesome! Truly epic ghost. But non psychotic Anna? This is where the drop in stars goes. She felt like an 8 year old girl. When she reverts to her other, 'true self' I found Cas's attraction to her almost squeamish, like a 17 year old boy should not be having feelings for that child (even though shes his age, or was when she died) She sounded and acted like a clueless little child. I know she was raised in a different time period, but at the same time she has lived through torturous things, and I would expect to see that weigh upon her development. Either way, I found myself wanting to skip any part where she wasn't being BAMF Anna.
The book really was a great read, and I am looking forward to reading book 2, although I am afraid it may be more child Anna instead of BAMF Anna. We shall see!
