Okay, I should get back to the story. Haven't read much ghost stories and this is the best one I've read so far. I think it could also be described as an horror story as well as a story of friendship and living. After Cas' father died on a de-ghosting case, it was left up to him to continue the legacy of ridding the world of the evil feinds.
All Cas knows is ghosts and more ghost, he's been a loner his entire life and wishes to keep it that way, he doesn't want to be responsible for the lives of others and he doesn't know how to be with the living anyway. When he was sent a tip about a ghost who needs vanquishing Cas wouldn't like that term it being a ghostbuster one, lol called Anna Dressed in Blood he can feel that this one is going to be different.
Everything on this job was different for Cas, first his barrier of not letting anyone in was broken through by new friends Thomas and Carmel.
Inexperienced at ghost hunting but brave enough to fight side by side with Cas. And second, Cas doesn't hesitate to send the ghost he's hunting to wherever it belongs, but Anna was a different story. He can't find it in himself to send her away.
Anyone who dares enters Anna's domain doesn't leave with their life, but when Cas unwittingly finds himself in her house unprepared, instead of ripping him to shreds she allows him to leave. Let's not forget the Obeahman. The Obeahman's existence brings up questions for Cas, mostly about his Athame. The same Athame his father and ancestors used to re-kill ghosts and send them away. Where do the ghosts actually go? Is the Athame good or bad? Cas has never been in love, or was never drawn to a human girl.
I think it was unfortunate that he was born into such a destiny and to be thrown into to it at such a young age. All Cas knows is ghosts, so no wonder the first time he feels drawn to a girl she turns out to be a ghosts. Anna and Cas's affection towards each other was a little strange for me but I accepted that his mostly secluded life from the living made it inevitable.
Cool and creepy story, really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see where it goes. A very unique premise and a lovable main character make this book a must read on my list. I loved that the main character, ghosthunter Cas Lowood, is a boy! So many YA book have female protagonists. Cas is nothing the reader would expect from a boy his age.
He is clearly good looking and could fall into the "popular" crowd but he's not a jock and he gravitates towards the nerdy outcasts. He also doesn't stay at any high school for more than a few months. He can't, he has to hunt down spooks who are causing serious problems we are talking about deaths here and set them free. That's where the book starts. He arrives in Canada yay! But soon he finds himself making friends and This is clearly different from his other "jobs. Blake has done an excellent job.
Highly recommend checking it out. How had I not read this amazing ghost story, filled with blood and a touch of romance before now? Spurred on by the fact the author Kendare Blake will be here in town for a signing, and me just knowing by looking at the cover that I was going to love the book and therefore read it at my usual breakneck speed , I had to read this at last.
I know Blake has new books out but it's easy to see why this has become the sort of book that people recommend when you ask ' do you know of any good YA ghost stories? Well, yes, I do. This is a 'new' classic: there's the chilling haunted house, the handsome ghost hunter Cas, the terrifying, beautiful ghost of Anna, and a tale that doesn't let up until the very last page.
It's gory, funny, romantic, vivid, and just a brilliant piece of writing. It's also heartbreaking, and not just a fluffy piece of young adult literature. The best part of waiting a few years before getting to a book is that the second one has already been written! Nothing but good things to say about a very dark and chilling but fantastic novel. Instant favorite.
Just another to-pass-the-time book. To be fair, it was scary and had me at the edge of my bed at times. The graphic detail is amazing, as well as the history behind all that spook. But I didn't dig it much, I guess because this genre isn't my favorite. And I find it weird that you can fall in love with a ghost??? It was hard to put down, though! I liked it enough to read it in one sitting. Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story Warning: This book will most likely scare the crap out of you.
Anna Dressed in Blood isn't scary at all. If you're not afraid of ghost, evil voodoo monsters living in your basement, and occasional ghostly hitchhikers that want to kill you.
But if you should so happen to be afraid of these things Like me then you definetly want to read this one with the lights on because it was pretty creepy.
I mean it was just really strange. And there were some things I didn't really understand. Maybe I could understand if she was a pretty ghost, but half the time Anna was all black soul less eyes, Medusa hair, and black veins crawling all over her face.
That sounds pretty unattractive to me but Cas just kept coming back for more. And the antagonist, evil dude, with the missing pieces of flesh and eyes sew shut kind of reminded me of the boogeyman on, like, ten times worse.
Even this book really freaked me out, it was really good. I read it all in about four hours. The characters were a bit strange but Ms. Black kept me intrested in what was going to happen to them. Anna's background story was very tragic and I felt sympathetic towards her despite her unfavorable hobbies and I thought Cas was a pretty good guy. The romance between Anna and Cas was nice, not overdone and not underdeveloped, but just right.
So, overall, I liked it and I recomend to anyone who like a scary book with descriptive blood and gore and guts and rotted flesh and I like that Blake uses aspects of real-life witchcraft and voodoo practices in tandem with her imagination to create the paranormal elements in Anna Dressed in Blood; Cas himself is skeptical about the realness and practicality of such practices, but I feel like he's one of the last people who should turn up his nose at such things Quite frankly, I didn't much care for Cas in general.
He's a broody, pretentious douchebag. His usual method of learning about ghosts from the locals is to go straight to the popular girls at whatever school he's enrolled in, because they know all the gossip and he's So Good-Looking they of course cannot resist his charms But he has no time for girls sorrynotsorry for stringing you all along , or anyone else, for that matter, except his mom and the ghosts he's hunting down, so when we meet Cas, he's just a loner who fancies himself some kind of antihero, except he's really just kind of a self-important dick There were other options that would have served much better: maybe she doesn't kill him because she can sense how he is different from typical humans.
But no: again, these are high school characters, with all the angst and insta-love geometry that is so popular in books and movies featuring teenagers, so we get this shallow, thrown-together, star-crossed lovers trope. I did appreciate how Blake doesn't shy away from getting graphic with the gory bits, and Anna herself was, appropriately, the most well-developed character in the book. Honestly, she is the only well-developed character in the book. I'll probably pick up the second book in this series eventually, but since it sounds like it's still Cas-centric but with even more brooding and star-crossed insta-love angst, I'm not expecting to like it much better.
I wish the title character were the main character, but it is what it is For the complete review, you can visit me at Here Be Bookwyrms on Blogger. Cas Lowood has a unique life.
