Haunted by Joy Preble

Anne Michaelson is trying to forget everything that happened last year. But it's hard to do when her heart aches for Ethan "and there's a wild-haired woman stalking her...

Ethan Kosinsky is embracing his newfound mortality. But something is drawing him back to the girl he left behind--back to Anne and back to the magic...

A mysterious stranger is hunting Anne wherever she goes. No one sees her but Anne. When she searches for the woman's identity, Anne exposes secrets about her own life-- things that will change her life forever. And when the gorgeous Ethan returns, her life gets a lot more complicated.

Anne thought her journey with the Romanov family had ended, but it was just the beginning...

Haunted by Joy Preble is the second book in the Dreaming Anastasia trilogy, and I still love Joy’s use of Russian Folklore; the story is filled with even more magic and mystery than the first. I really enjoyed Anne’s character in this one, even if at times I found her to be a bit indecisive. I most enjoy a story when the main character is not dependent on someone else, and for the most part Anne was pretty independent, but she constantly bounced between her attraction to Ethan and her want for Ben as a normal boyfriend. But when the need arose, she was willing to sacrifice anything to defend those she loved against the rusalka (a Russian mermaid), who is connected to Anne in an unexpected way.

This book picks up a few months after where Dreaming Anastasia ended and Anne is immediately thrown back into the world of magic and danger. Anne believed that the powers she obtained in order to free Anastasia would disappear as time went on, only that is not true; her powers are growing, and Baba Yaga (the witch from Dreaming Anastasia) is not finished with her yet.
