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.My Thoughts: Oh, CAS! When last we left Cas, his ghostly lady friend had just sacrificed herself so that he and his friends wouldn't be chowed on by the nasty Obeahman.You'd think that they'd all frolic into the sunset after that and live happily ever after. You'd be wrong. Dare I say it... DEAD WRONG! (oh, man. I'm dying of the laughter, people. DYING OF THE LAUGHTER!)
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 waking nightmares Cas is having about Anna just keep getting worse. He can't sleep. He's barely eating. He's hesitating in his ghost hunting. I get all that. I understand why he wants to find a way to help Anna. What I don't get is why he's so chummy with Jessy when he jaunts over to England. After her first stunt, I would have punched her in the face and thrown her in a river. Seriously. The girl bugged the crap out of me. Her little digs about how Cas isn't as good as she's been led to believe... Eff you, you little scab. You're a brainwashed twit. Frankly, I was kinda hoping she'd get left in Hell AS SOON AS SHE WAS INTRODUCED and that would be that, BUT NO! I should feel bad for this rage, but I don't.
I do love the ghosties that Cas was sent up against. Except for the one in the inn in Scotland. I wish Cas had accidentally stabbed Jessy instead of the ghost. That might just be my rage talking. -pause- No, maybe it wasn't. Anyway. I liked the ghosts. I was properly creepified by the Suicide Forest. I did like how everything ended up. It was... somehow perfect.
