Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.
So I just decided to check this book out, and read it. Let me tell you this, this book was amazing. I LOVED it. That's how good it was. I was so suspenseful, and just fantastic.
I love the plot. It is just really creative, and I just loved it. That characters, Cas. He is one of my favorite male characters, I thought he was strong, and just nice. He was the perfect main character. Anna. I loved her, even thought she may be a little scary, she was a girl before not a monster, and Cas sees both sides to Anna. I loved there connection in the book. All in all this book was just so amazing, I would definetley recommend this book to everyone.
