my review of the young adult novel,
anna dressed in blood
"GOOD GOREY FUN! "
A VERY FOREBODING TITLE, this book does not disappoint.
anna dressed in blood is great for those who want an easy to read and satisfying ghost story.
i work in an awesome small town library during the day, and manage a ghost tour company. as you can imagine, i love a good ghost story.
I really loved this book. it was the catalyst for my realization that i am a fan of the horror novel genre, almost exclusively. of course, i always knew i liked reading scary stories, but this book reminded me that the horror genre is my favorite to read. Now i am on a hunt for more like anna dressed in blood.
for me, anna dressed in blood delivered The perfect Ghost Story with a grown-up Scooby-Doo vibe, and gave me the creeps, chills, and great gory fun i was hoping for.
main character, cas lowood, is a ghost hunter. but not just any normal paranormal enthusiast like you and me. cas has a special ability passed down from his family; a special tool he can use to return the dead back to hell.
follow cas and his team of unlikely friends as he tracks and returns the restless and unruly spirits of guilty murderers and tragic deaths to the depths of the beyond.
cas meets anna, a ghost with a grudge no one can imagine.
little does he know his thirst for the hunt will grow into an adventure of peril unlike any he has had before.
i grew up reading books and watching shows like goosebumps, scooby-doo, scary stories to tell in the dark, and in a dark dark room (only a handful of the millions of the genre i have actually watched and read). for me, anna dressed in blood was a pretty close kin to these titles. though classified as a young adult title for its language and somewhat teenage level mature content, it had the same type of feeling as a great goosebumps novel for me.
i highly recommend this novel to anyone who is a fan of a good ghost story. anna dressed in blood will always be a favorite book of mine.
