Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed in Blood:

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story...

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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: move, 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, but now stained red and dripping 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.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

While it's listed as YA I would be careful who reads this book due to graphic language and violence. 

 With that said THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME!!!  The gore! The violence! The ACTION!  I had my doubts when I picked up this book, but after reading the first 2 pages I couldn't put it down until it was finished.

Cas Kills ghosts?  Hard to believe, but it's true.  He travels the globe at the requests of people who have ghosts or ghost legends.  Anna is a diabolic, evil, murderous ghost...Has Cas met his match? One of my favorite characters is Tybalt. Who is he? Read it and find out!  I will warn you that you may want to read this spook-tacular thriller with the lights ON.  When you're finished look for the sequel GIRL OF NIGHTMARES:  Happy reading!
