Anna latest kill as witness by Cas Lowood... {excerpt from Anna Dressed in Blood}


I open my eyes. She's standing above me, the goddess of death, black lips and cold hands.


"Anna." My mouth curls into a weak smile.


She looks down at me, a pathetic thing shoved up against her wall. her brow creases as she floats. And then she jerks her gaze away toward the window above my head. Before I can move, her arms shoot forward and break through the glass. I hear Mike or Chase or both of them screaming almost in my ear. Farther away, I hear Carmel.


Anna has pulled Mike through the window and into the house. He's screaming and bawling like a caught animal, twisting in her grip and trying to keep from looking at her face. His struggles don't seem to bother her. Her arms are as immobile as marble.


Find out what happens to Mike! Read ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD!

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story…

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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: move, 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, but now stained red and dripping 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.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

The title really reaches out and grabs the reader. Like Anna does, maybe? And Parajunkee's review convinced me this a book that shouldn't be missed.
