Review : Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake

“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.” (Goodreads)

Perfect halloween story? I think so. It was creepy and gory, but very fun at the same time. It mix action, love and death perfectly. I really like Blake’s writing. Cas is a great character and i really enjoyed reading from his perspective. He’s awesome. Anna is fascinating. Love her so much. Her character goes through a lot a changes. Her relationship with Cas is cute. The romance is a bit slow, but still enjoyable and it fits perfectly in the story. The side characters are amazing. I think my favorite is Thomas and i love his friendship with Cas.
Anna dressed in blood is fresh and doesn’t feel like something i have read before.

Anna Dressed in Blood : 4/5
