From the Review Pile #7

This is a meme I participate in called From the Review Pile, hosted by Stepping Out of the Page. Basically it is a meme, where you pick one book (or two!) that you have been meaning to read/review for a while, but haven't yet gotten around to it. It will also give the book some extra publicity. :)  

This week I am showcasing Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake! I have heard amazing things about it and I finally cracked and bought it yesterday, even though I'm supposed to not buy books/ebooks anymore, as apparently I have enough. Pft, you can  never have enough books! :)

Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake
Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)
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.
