Anna Dressed In Blood By Kendare Blake
3.8/5 I had to think a lot about rating this because I wasn’t sure if I should give it a 4 or a very high 3.
17 year-old Theseus Cassio Lowood (Cas) is a ghost hunter. He has been sending ghosts away for 3 years now, trying to get his anger out because of his father’s death. He moves to Thunder Bay, Canada to kill Anna Korlov. Anna dressed in blood because she has apparently been killing many innocent people. What will he do when he just cannot kill her?
What I don’t like about this book is that it was extremely hard for me to picture what most of the character’s look like. I know that Kendare Blake was trying to make it in Cas’ point of view, but she really made it hard for me to picture what he looked like. All I knew were little bits and pieces that looked like a half finished painting in my mind. I also don’t like how rushed this novel is. I would have loved it more, no doubt if she put more description and made it longer and stretched it out more.
What I like about this book is Cas’ and Anna’s relationship. Actually, I love how Cas’ treats the ghosts. He treats a lot of the ghosts with respect and tries to be gentle with them. I also like Thomas mostly because he sounds a lot like my best friend, Kate. Near the ending was very intense for me and I started flipping out (which means that I’m reading a good book). I just couldn’t put it down when I reached around page 220. I really hope Kendare Blake didn’t rush through her next book, Girl Of Nightmares. But I’m still going to read it.
