Waiting On Wednesday: Anna Dressed in Blood


Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine.





Book: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Release Date: September 2011
Genre:Young Adult / Paranormal / Horror
Publisher: Tor
Description from Goodreads: 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.

I am a huge fan of her first book, Sleepwalk Society and I cannot wait for Anna Dressed in Blood. The premise sounds amazing, the trailer is awesome and the cover is.. GORGEOUS. I just am sad that I have to wait until September :(
