Anna Dressed in Blood

Anna Dressed in Blood  - Kendare Blake I'm giving this 3.5 stars.

Confession: I had this on my shelf for almost 3 months and thought it was going to be really scary so I was too chicken to crack it open. It didn't give me nightmares! Phew... crisis averted!

This started off with a bang and then it kinda... fizzled a bit. Lately I've been very impatient with books so it could just be me. I really liked Cas. He's just a 17 year old kid looking to live up to his heritage as ghost slayer. I liked the mystery around his father's death and the slow unraveling of what happened. I also fully expected not to like Carmel. I thought for sure she would be the smart, beautiful and yet conniving popular girl. I'm glad I was wrong.

It was great read. I'm intrigued to find out more about Thomas and Cas' mom. There has got to be more going on there. Good ghostly story!
