Review: Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendra Blake

I really enjoyed this one! I love a good ghost story and this one had it all. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline.

I'll be honest and say that I'm not familiar with the author BUT I will now be keeping my out for her.

I found the story to be original and entertaining. I also thought that it was refreshing to be reading something different. I read A LOT so it's hard to find something that doesn't seem repititious. This was a good little break from vampires and werewolves. (Though I still love them dearly LOL!)

I'd say to check this one out whenever it is released. I know I'll be wanting to read more from this author.

About The Book:
(from Goodreads)

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.

  1. This book sounds fascinating. I have never heard of it. Great review!

    I found you through Book Blogs and signed up to follow you. When you have a chance- please stop by the blog for my middle grade novel that I am hoping to get published. http://thesecretdmsfilesoffairdaymorrow.blogspot.com/

    Take care-
    Jess- although I may show up as Fairday, the main character from my novel. I can't figure out why that happens sometimes and I can't fix it. :)
