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. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: 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.

Yet she spares Cas's life. 



I cannot believe that it took me this long to read this book. Now I can see why people are in love with ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD because I fell in love with it, as well the characters. I had been coming across this book for few months, yet I didn’t get a chance to pick up, not till I came across at library. Once that I did, I didn’t want to put it down because I wanted to see how it would turn out. I was curious if Cas would kill Anna. I knew that there was something that held him back from killing, just way that he kept coming up with excuses. That wasn’t how it was with the last ghost that he killed. I believe that Cas and Anna established a bond when Anna came to his rescue the first time around. A bond that neither of them realized they had at first. Otherwise why would he keep coming to her to talk, instead of finding ways to kill her like he should have. ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD had suspense all through the book that has you on the edge of the seat. It was almost impossible for me to put the book down.

I love stories about ghost, ghost hunters. I have read few through my life. ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD was unlike the others that I came across. First of all, there was more horror and bloody details in this book that the others. I’m not as big on horror books as I am on other genres but I do read them. I loved everything about this one, and it was unlike any other horror books that I have read out there. ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD had my interest till I reached the end of the book. Even once I reached the end, I had more questions especially after Anna sacrificed herself for Cas. Now what? What is going to happen to Anna now? The curiosity had me wishing that I had the next book in series so I can see what’s going come in store for everyone.

I love the cover. It’s creepy because of the way that Anna is standing with the house in front of her. Yet it’s engaging and the cover alone will grab your attention and have you picking up the book, especially if you into mysterious, horror novels. This was a first KENDARE BLAKE novel that I had read and now I am eager to check out the rest.
