The sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood finds Cas not only mourning the loss of Anna, but also having nightmares about her suffering wherever it is that the knife took her. He is determined to set her free, which, to him means bringing her back. The only person offering any support to Cas's crazy idea is his now best friend Thomas. Since deciding to stay in Thunder Bay, Cas has learned to appreciate his friends, and the challenges he faces in this installment make him question how much he is willing to risk. Cas has an unusual lifestyle as a ghost slayer--or should I say THE ghost slayer since there is only one warrior who can wield the knife that has been handed down in his family. He makes it a point to only kill the ones who hurt people, because he isn't sure exactly where the ghosts go once they have been sent by the knife. Written in first person, present tense, the book snaps along at a steady pace. The language can be edgy here and there, and this is definitely a horror story.
