I absolutely loved this story! It was something completely unexpected and it took me a while to start it just because ‘things that go bump in the night’ scare the living daylights out of me!
Thank goodness books are different to movies and I could dial down the scary to suit my easily frightened mind.
A few years ago I never would have touched this book, but since a friend once convinced me to read a vampire love story, I haven’t quite been the same and I am so glad for that! The criteria for picking which new book to start, is now based on reviews rather than silly stereotypes.
Anna Dressed in Blood and its sequel ‘Girl of Nightmares’ are must reads. In the ‘young adult’ genre there are only a few books that completely suck me in and take me into their world. You know those books that you end up taking everywhere with you – the ones that you’ll read on bathroom breaks or during lunch at work? This is one of those. You can’t help it. The characters are just so fascinating and the desire to delve deeper into the story and find out what is really going on is just too intense not to give in.
In Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake takes the idea of a haunted house and turns into a brilliant story about how love can completely catch you unaware. The main character, Cas Lowood, is great to share a mind with. He’s funny, intelligent and even though he can sometimes be rash, it is what makes him so believable.
I cannot rave enough about this series, and have shared it with enough friends to know I am not being to biased – don’t let any stereotypes stop you from reading this story! ‘Anna Dressed in Blood’ will knock your socks off.
