Have you ever stood in your house, listening to a quiet, unfamiliar noise, and felt the hair rise on the back of your neck? Cas Lowood has, and the unholy hell of what he finds when he investigates will make you jump a little bit in your seat.
He's a year-old who kills the dead with a magic athame, just as his father did before him--and now he's faced with the task of killing Anna, a homicidal ghost who was murdered more than 60 years ago. Cas is a fantastically strong and appealing protagonis Have you ever stood in your house, listening to a quiet, unfamiliar noise, and felt the hair rise on the back of your neck?
Cas is a fantastically strong and appealing protagonist, but it's really Anna who takes center stage. Imagine the visual of a pale girl with inky hair floating in a dark house, her beautiful white dress slowly drip-drip-dripping with blood. She's deadly dangerous and full of vengeful fury, however, because of the way she was killed.
When you find out what really happened to Anna, it's hard not to feel terrible pity for her--and to understand why Cas has such a hard time killing her. If you've been looking for a great YA horror novel, look no further. Anna Dressed in Blood is a stunning novel, full of atmospheric spookiness and unthinkable horrors. I cringed reading about ghosts with stones where their eyes should be, I yelped when Cas goes down into a basement full of But although the descriptions are full of vivid imagery and there's plenty of brutal action, what happens isn't at all gross.
If anything, there's a dark beauty in the descriptions and an elegance in the writing that makes every scene a true pleasure to read. My reading status updates will give you a peek at some of the lines and scenes that particularly made me shiver, but I really had to restrain myself from posting one every couple of pages, as there's so much to savor, even in simple but humorous lines such as "She's wearing the same smile as her cat.
This is the darker, more grown-up version of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer , and it's much more violent and much more polished. Anna offers an unforgettable thrill of a ride--and it catapulted instantly to my favorites list for the year.
I am so excited about this author and I can't wait for the sequel, Girl of Nightmares , to come out in Read it, read it, read it!
I promise it will make you shudder, in the very best of ways. This review also appears in The Midnight Garden.

Nothing is less fun then getting up in the middle of a dark night to tend to your son. You're creeping through the halls thinking over and over in your head, "Ghosts aren't real.
Ghosts aren't real. Fuck what was that?! Nothing, okay? That was nothing because ghosts aren't real. Apart from the pants-shitting terror, there is Cas to deal with. A lot of other reviews cover how his head space is occasionally annoying to be in.
For me, that just felt like realism because if I were a badass, devil-may-care, teenage ghost hunter if they existed, little bro then I'd probably be really smarmy and annoying too. What I really enjoyed was Anna and her relationship with Cas. Anna was like the girl next door.
If the girl next door tore livers out of people to play hackey sack with, that is. She's this really lovely, murdersome, complicated ghost character. Although, I have to wonder how much she has to complain about really. I mean, sure, she's a dead horror-monster stuck in a house filled with the spiritual husks of her victims - but she died in a really awesome dress!
And it even changes colour from white to red depending on how sadistically evil and murdery she feels at that time. I can't think of one. I enjoyed the writing, the cast of characters, the plot and the pacing. I enjoyed pretty much everything about this novel. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend the next two weeks pondering why the interrobang ever managed to fall out of popular use while roaming the dark halls of their house?
