Girl of Nightmares, by Kendare Blake

All Hallow's Read!

Girl of Nightmares. Kendare Blake. Book Review: Cas Lowood's job is to send ghosts on, but that work is being affected by his unwillingness to let one ghost go. Cas sees and hears Anna everywhere—and always in terrible pain. It distracts him, and that could cost him and his friends their lives. But Cas can’t forget: they owe those lives to Anna. Are his visions just hallucinations, or does Anna still exist somewhere, desperately needing his help? This sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood is fierce, suspenseful, and intriguing. The back half, especially, draws you into the wider world that Cas is only one part of, and makes me hope for more to come in this series.

Spookiness: 4.5/5 ghosts

Spooky elements: All the terrifying dead stuff of Anna Dressed in Blood, plus some good, ghastly world-building and creepy secret societies!

I liked Anna Dressed In Blood more than I had expected (which is to say, I thought it sounded terrible but got it as a Kindle Daily Deal and ended up thinking it was ok). I'll look for this one.

I know exactly what you mean. Every description I read of Anna Dressed in Blood had me rolling my eyes.
