REVIEW: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Title: Anna Dressed in Blood
Author: Kendare Blake
Series: Anna Dressed in Blood
Series #: 1
Pages: 320
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. 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: 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.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.

Selena's POV:
To be honest, I loved this book. Absolutely LOVED it. No doubt about that. I heard some great things about this book, and decided to try it out, and in the end, I fell in love with it.

Cas kills the dead; easy enough. NO, it isn't. He has his father's athame that has something special to it that kills the dead, and brings it back to the place where the dead belong. So he moves to this town for his next kill. And locals call this ghost "Anna Dressed In Blood."

Now who WOULDN'T find that title interesting? Anna Dressed in Blood ...

So Cas goes to find this ghost and thinks that it will be another easy kill. But what he finds instead is a ghost that's VERY powerful, and nothing like he's faced before. Cas tries to discover Anna's past, and what happened the night she got murdered.

I'll tell you now, this book is VERY creepy. It is VERY creepy and scary. I don't like scary things, that is just me. But when I read this, I was scared, yet I wanted MORE. This book is full of twist and turns and everything in between. I did not see half the things that were coming in this book. I just love it.

If you haven't read this book yet, I strongly advise you to read it now. It's SO good, and you will love it just as much as I love it too. And you'll fall in love with the characters, especially Cas and Anna. ;)
