Anna Dressed In Blood

Reviewed by:

Cas has an unusual skill: he can kill the dead. Just like his dad could until he was viciously murdered by a ghost. Now Cas and his mom constantly move from place to place killing ghosts that have been harming humans. Someday soon Cas means to avenge his dad’s death but before he can do that he sets himself one final test . . . Anna Korlov. The locals call her Anna Dressed in Blood for a reason; she kills anyone foolish enough to enter her house in usually the most violent way possible. But as Cas quickly discovers Anna is not your average everyday ghost and after Anna spares Cas’ life, he is determined to solve the mystery of Anna’s death. The tagline is awesome and super catchy just your average boy-meets-girl, girls-kills-people story . . . and the cover is the perfect blend of hauntingly creepy and gorgeous. All-in-all you couldn’t find a better package for Kendare Blake’s beautifully written novel Anna Dressed in Blood. Blake’s writing is a pleasure to read even during the scary parts of this book and her characters are all well developed and so easy to related to. Anna Dressed in Blood is both a violent gory ghost story with multiple twists and turns that will leave the reader on the edge of their seat and a love story that with leave them breathless.
