AAAAAAH! Why WHY???

In a way it was a beautiful ending - in my opinion it was WRONG! - But beautiful

Dont ask me why, but I picture Gideon as Stephen Fry... Is that weird? ( )

The sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood, in which Cas and his friends try to save Anna from being trapped in Hell.

Stylistically, this is more of the same as first book, but with less backstory and more meebling on what to do. The first big chunk of the book mostly consists of Cas, Thomas and Carmel disagreeing on whether or not to look for a way to save Anna/bring Anna back and why, but things improve once that's done and they head to London for more information. Still, we see a lot less of Anna in this book, and she was my favorite character, so it wasn't quite as fun as the first one overall. Also, I took off a .5 star because I hated Jestine. Cas describes all the things she does that annoys him or makes him not trust her, and it irritated me that the plot still treats her like a potential love interest despite that. ( )

Anna was my favorite character in Anna Dressed in Blood, and this book distinctly lacks the presence of Anna for most of it. I just couldn't get excited about the Order or anything associated with it. I did, however, like the ending; I thought that that was probably the best that could have happened, considering the circumstances. ( )

In this installment of the Anna series, Cas cannot live with the idea of Anna sacrificing herself for him and his friends and being sent to god knows where. Everyone wants him to forget her but his guilt, and missing her prevents him from letting go. He keeps seeing her everywhere, she's haunting him and he has to see her suffer unspeakable torture.

Cas is persistent and pushes those in the know to help him contact Anna and bring her back. Cas vows to go to any lengths to have Anna back even if it means his life. Cas cannot accept what he's learning about his Athame, people are making it sound sentient and evil, but to him it's just a knife, his knife, but a treasured possession nonetheless. If that's not all, Cas learns there is more behind the knife's creation that was withheld from him and there's a group that has a lot to do with the Athame's existence that want's to replace him but he can only be replaced after his death.

I think Cas has more room to learn how to have a conversation with the living, he holds back a lot. He's shuts down and doesn't seem to want to deal, but he's getting there. I would have loved to see the growth in him that he suddenly had at the end of the story, didn't see the decision he made coming.

Don't know if there is another book, it ended with a sort of completion but to me a bit open ended. I feel there is more to this secret group behind the Athame and it's wielder. If the story continues I would like to learn more about this secret group and if Anna continues to have a part in Cas' life. Still liking the story a lot and if there is more I would love to read it.
