Review: Anna Dressed In Blood By: Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed in BloodAnna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fast adventurous read that takes you into a mix of dark and light exposing the grey that lies in the in between. The combination of white witches, black witches, voodoo, ghost hunting, poltergeists, and a mixed group of people that come together that you haven't seen since the Buffy series on TV. Enter Theseus "Cas" Cassio Lockwood who has filled the footsteps of his father by hunting ghosts and destroying them, Carmel Jones, the "it" girl at school who becomes entangled in the hunt, Thomas Sabin, local boy who brought Cas in and has a few gifts of his own to bring to the table. In Thunder Bay there is a legend of Anna Korlov also known as, Anna dressed In Blood- she has taken victims ripped them apart, she is unlike any ghost that Cas has encountered, yet it there is depth to her that let's him know that the destruction is not of her will. To get to the bottom of her story could free her, yet can he kill her afterwords - and after all the hunting he has done, something might be hunting him...

Loved this book, a fast, easy read that was fast paced, fill with twists. I love the way the author writes and holds the voice throughout the book, lending a true gothic feel.
