Desription: Cas Lowood, armed with his late father's athame knife, kills ghosts. In Thunder Bay, Anna, forever 16, drips blood on her white dress from throat slit in 1958, and rips apart anyone who enters her house - except Cas. He makes new friends - high school queen Carmel, jock Will, admiring nerd Thomas and Tom's voodoo grandpa Morfran - to fight this demon.
My Thoughts: Anna Dressed in Blood was a somewhat interesting book about a ghost hunter who moves to a town and gets his world turned upside down by a ghost.
I wont say a lot about this one, because I honestly didn't like it that much. I had it in audio format and the narration was pretty horrible, so it pretty much ruined the book for me. The characters weren't really that interesting, the MC was okay, but the supporting characters were boring. I didn't really like the interactions that much, and the romance aspect never really got me. It seemed like it popped up out of nowhere and it just didn't make any sense to me.
That being said, the storyline was different than the few other ghost stories I read and it was refreshing to read. I probably wont read the next ones in the series though. I give it 2 stars.
