Reviews

"At once as eerie and terrible as it is sad and romantic, Anna Dressed in Blood is not your normal ghost story. [...] This captivating story pulls no punches, making for a breathless read that lingers in the imagination long after the last page is turned." --NPR on Anna Dressed in Blood"Abundantly original, marvelously inventive and enormous fun, this can stand alongside the best horror fiction out there. We demand sequels." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Anna Dressed in Blood"Anna Dressed in Blood is a dark and intricate tale, with a hero who kills the dead but is half in love with death himself. By the end of the book, you will be too. Spellbinding and romantic." --Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mortal Instruments series on Anna Dressed in Blood"Cinematic and compelling. Blake's smooth combination of gore and romance should have little problem attracting the Twilight crowd." --Booklist on Anna Dressed in Blood"It's the old boy meets girl story, if the boy is a wry, self-destructive ghost-hunter bent on avenging his father and the girl is a homicidal ghost trapped in a house full of everyone she's ever murdered. Needless to say, Cas and Anna are my new favorite twosome. When I got to the last page, I flipped back to the first." --Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Red Glove on Anna Dressed in Blood

Gr 10 Up-Fans of Blake's excellent Anna Dressed in Blood (Tor, 2011) will not be disappointed by this sequel. High school junior Cas is a ghost killer who has been saved by Anna, a ghost, through a great self-sacrifice. But now Cas has visions of Anna being tortured, and he decides that it is his duty to save her in return. In the process, he encounters other would-be ghost killers who don't necessarily share his ethics with regard to only killing ghosts who harm humans. Blake is aware of her debt to previous horror/humor hybrids in pop culture, even naming a character Will Rosenberg (as in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer). But her talent for creating a truly scary story laced with laugh-out-loud humor makes this series (assuming there are further installments) a rare treat.-Hayden Bass, Seattle Public Library, WA (c) Copyright 2012.
