Girl of Nightmares review

Goodreads says:

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.

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

First let me say that I really liked the first book “Anna Dressed in Blood”.  It was fast-paced and well written – I recommend it to people all the time.

I can’t really say that about this sequel.  It is still pretty well written but boy did it seem to drag on and on and on to me.  They could have cut out 200 pages without affecting the story at all.  I wish they would have cut more out because it bogs down so often that one has trouble feeling the flow and/or caring about the characters.  Seriously, I just wanted it to be over with when I was a mere 200 pages in. 

As I said, I really liked the first book so hate having to write this review about the second but I seriously thought it was cumbersome and hard to get through.  I give it a C.
