Becoming increasingly intrigued by Anna, he investigates and finds that she was brutally killed and cursed as a vengeful ghost.

Best part of story, including ending: The book is not entirely a horror book, but it is soaked in gothic elements, which makes reading it a chilling experience. It is a unique book in the YA genre.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when Anna and Cas meet for the first time. It is scary and strangely romantic at the same time.

Opinion about the main character: Cas can be a bit arrogant at times, but after he meets Anna, we start to see the humble Cas too. He is realistic and well fleshed out.
