Book Shorts: Anna Dressed in Blood

Anna Dressed in Blood

 Title:  Anna Dressed in Blood

Author:  Kendare Blake

Summary:  For three years, seventeen-year-old Cas Lowood has carried on his father’s work of dispatching the murderous dead, traveling with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat, but everything changes when he meets Anna, a girl unlike any ghost he has faced before.

I started reading it because… I don’t like horror stories or movies, but some friends thought this one would change my mind.

I kept reading because… The characters in this book are so vivid. Cas the ghost hunter has a lot of weight on his shoulders, and once he decides to befriend a couple other kids who can help him hunt this ghost, the plot really starts moving.

Main character(s): If they were in a yearbook, they would be voted Most Likely To:  Protect the Living from the Dead.

Six Word Recap:  Ghost hunter meets dead girl, swoons.

This book reminded me of Odd Thomas, by Dean Koontz, because of the fast and furious plot, the strange twists, and the ongoing presence of the dead.
