Book Spotlight: ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD by Kendare Blake



Blurb and image from Goodreads:



Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story...

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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: move, 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, but now stained red and dripping 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.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

The Book: YA Horror/Supernatural

I enjoyed this read. It definitely kept me guessing what was going to happen; in other words, a page-turner. If you're into ghosts and horror with a dash of YA romance, grab this book. You won't be disappointed.

I've been wanting to read this book FOREVER! Ugh . . . why does there have to be so many good books out!?

I keep picking this book up (SUCH an amazing cover) and then putting it back down because I'm afraid it'll be too scary. Love page turners, though. On a scale of 1 to 10, how scary was ?

@Angela: I read this last year and only got to spotlight it today. Hehe...

@Robin: Hmmm...I don't know. I love scary books so I'd say this was a 6 for me. :)
