Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake



Kendare Blake is an import from South Korea who was raised in the United States by caucasian parents. You know, that old chestnut. She received a Bachelor's degree in Business from Ithaca College and a Master's degree in Writing from Middlesex University in London. She brakes for animals, the largest of which was a deer, which sadly didn't make it, and the smallest of which was a mouse, which did, but it took forever. Amongst her likes are Greek Mythology, rare red meat and veganism. She also enjoys girls who can think with the boys like Ayn Rand, and boys who scare the morality into people, like Bret Easton Ellis.

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.

  4. If I was invisible, I think I'd do what everybody invisible does in TV shows and movies and play pranks on people and eavesdrop. Just seems like the proper thing to do!!

    (And I really wish I had an iPhone, because those covers are AWESOME!! I think I've had this phone long enough......)

  15. I actually wrote a short story about this when I was in 5th grade. I can't remember what the character did, but they had to figure out how to become visible again. If I turned invisible, I'd fly to Washington, D.C. and sneak into top secret meetings to find out what's really going on in the world.

    ReplyDelete
