Girl of Nightmares
Release date: 2012
Anna Dressed in Blood synopsis. (Girl of Nightmares synopsis not yet available.)
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas’s life.
How incredibly fantastic is this cover? Anna Dressed in Blood’s cover was great, but this one is just amazing! When I saw the cover reveal I couldn’t resist using it for one of my Halloween WoWs. There is no release date for this puppy yet but I think we’re all hoping it will be out very soon! I can’t wait to read more about Cas and Anna. If you haven’t read Anna yet, the first in the series, I really recommend it!

No, I haven’t read that yet and I want to. I might just have to order it or get it for my kindle. Might make a great Halloween night read while I eat pizza and hand out candy to little kids. 🙂

I have yet to read Anna. It’s one of those books I have on my shelf that I have yet to get to. This cover is gorgeous though!
Thanks for all the comments. It’s a perfect Halloween read if you haven’t read Anna yet!
And iLuvReadingTooMuch: What do you mean recent reviews? I have an archive which is all my reviews, I don’t have anything showing my recent ones. I think blogger has a widget that shows your recent posts, though.
I just love, love, LOVE this cover! I saw it, I think I saw last week. Either way, great choice for WoW!!
Thanks for sharing and commenting on ours!
Well I haven’t read Anna yet, but ofc I’m going to, and this cover is AWESOME. Can’t wait 🙂 Great choice!!

In case you don’t see my response: I hope you enjoy FIRE! I didn’t like it as much as GRACELING, but still enjoyed it a lot!
I really like the way your blog is set up. How did you do that revolving header?
I love the cover for GIRL OF NIGHTMARES. I featured it Mon for Cover Crazy!

I haven’t read Anna Dressed in Blood yet but I have it! I’ll probably read it next. I love both of the covers! Great WoW.
I have to get crackin on Anna Dressed in Blood, because the second book looks amazing!
Thanks for stopping by my WOW post. And since you’ve never read his books, if you liked 13 Reasons Why then you’ll like John Green. I’d start with Looking for Alaska!
Gah! I haven’t even read Anna yet! That is a gorgeous book. Thanks for sharing!

This will definitely be my pick if I’ve read Anna Dressed in Blood already! Love the cover tho! Haunting…

Yeah, on top. I haven’t seen that before! Did you design it yourself or copy a code from somewhere..? So fun!
T.V and Book Addict
I have heard amazing things about Anna Dressed in Blood. I’m extremely curious. I had no idea it was even a part of a series. I must check it out asap. Knowing me though, it’ll probably be a while because I’m so crazy when it comes to series. I feel like I have to wait till all of the books are out before I begin.
I haven’t read the first book, but this sure makes me want to.. This is the first time I really paid attention to what the book is about. Super choice!
I haven’t read Anna Dressed in Blood yet but I want to desperately! It will be one of the next books I buy, I need to get my hands on it!
Thank you for stopping by Book Cover Justice!
This cover is just stunning! Awesome pick 🙂
Anna Dressed in Blood has been in my TBR pile for a while, but I just haven’t gotten to it yet! So many books, so little time! I can’t wait to read it though!
Thanks for stoping by our WoW earlier!

We definitely are on the same wave-length with this one! I wish it were out now so I could read it as soon as I finish Anna Dressed in Blood.

Is this the sequel book for Anna Dressed in Blood? The cover does look really good, can’t wait to read them. =] Thanks for visiting my WoW. =]
Wow. You couldn’t have picked a better book to feature. I’m impressed. 🙂
Although I seem to remember that that description refers to Anna Dressed in Blood. But still the cover’s really gorgeous! ^_^
Reply to Giselle: I mean the slideshow thing at the top of your homepage displaying some reviews. That’s very cool 🙂 Just wondering where you got it…
Thanks for the previous reply!
Little Miss Becky : )
I loved the first book, so this is going to be high on my wishlist for next year!! I hope it won’t be a whole year that we have to wait since the first one just recently came out!
I haven’t read Anna Dressed in Blood yet. Still languishing in the TBR pile. But I agree with you that cover is like O_O, pops straight to me. It also helped that red is my favorite color.
Thanks for stopping by. ^_^

Very nice cover. It looks interesting and haunting. Great for Halloween. The book sounds very intriguing. Thank you for sharing! Also, thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog. 🙂
The slideshow is from John Designs. I took the code and made some adjustments to fit my blog.
I still have to read Anna Dressed in Blood so I didn’t read the summary just in case it’s too revealing. But I REALLY want to read this series. The cover of book #2 is really awesome.
Thanks for sharing, and thank you for stopping by my WoW post!
