"Pretty Little Liars" by Sara Shepard will keep you on the edge of your chair with the mysterious wonders it contains. It starts with a young girl named Alison from Rosewood going missing. Three years after her disappearance, her “body” is found and she’s pronounced dead. This girl was something special. Loved by many, yet also hated by many, she had the world wrapped around her finger. She knew everything about everybody.
When Alison died, everyone thought their secrets died with her. However, this was not the case for her best friends Emily, Hanna, Aria and Spencer. The four girls began to receive weird text messages that reminded them of their past. The messages were signed “-A.” The secrets were secrets that only Ali knew, so naturally the girls thought Ali’s ghost was somehow communicating with them.
Wondering whether Alison was dead or alive really kept the novel interesting. In almost every chapter, a new secret was uncovered that got the girls closer and closer to death. The girls had to stick together to protect themselves from whoever or whatever was ready to expose them… not only to Rosewood but to a pretty grave six feet under!
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake is a book that is filled with gore, ghosts and, of course, blood. Not the typical ghost or romance novel, Anna Dressed in Blood successfully combines the dead and what one will do for their love, all while getting rid of the stereotypes.
Anna is the lead female character who was murdered in her home in a white dress. Anna spends her days murdering anyone who would dare to venture inside of her home. She entices readers with her suspicious, curious nature. The relationship she has with the antagonist Cas also draws one's curiosity.
Cas is the male protagonist. He fights ghosts in real life, but still tries to uphold the memory of his father. His dad was found in pieces with bite marks all over owith chunks of meat missing which led to Cas's need to avenge him. However, when he meets Anna tensions and chemistry spark making him question whether or not she is beyond saving.
I think the book is 4 stars and I strongly recommend it for the person who is beyond sappy love stories or books where the plot is cluttered with death. Anna Dressed in Blood will leave you wanting more.
The book Anna Dressed in Blood was one of the most thrilling and suspenseful books I have ever read. It had one of my favorite subjects injected in the story, The Supernatural. The book did a good job of describing how and why ghosts appear and how to get rid of them. We find out that Anna is only bound to her house because her mother summoned a demon because she hated her own daughter. But there is a higher power in the mix, the same one who killed Cas's father tries to kill Cas, so Anna sacrifices herself for Cas, and he ends up staying in town. Overall, the book is one of my favorite genres and had a great storyline.
Kendare Blake did an excellent job at writting the story line for "Anna Dressed in Blood" She did so by taking the characters and giving them all a specific job that helped Cas, whether it was noticeable or not. And this surprised me because they stayed with him no matter what.
Cas is the main character of this book ,whose one and only mission is to kill Anna because of the murders that she commited. But it becomes difficult for him to do so, because he grows to love her.
Anna is the ghost that is haunting the Victorian house inside of Thunder Bay.For years she couldn't control herself when killing because she was tied to a curse. Her only exception was Cas, adn she didn't kill him, growing to have feelings for this mysterious boy that keeps coming back to visit.
This book was very great and it is hands down at least a 4.5. This was no regular story that talked about the good in people, but the bad things that made them stand out especially.
Anna Dressed in Blood, written by Kendare Blake is a book filled with gore, violence, blood, etc. It isn't your average ghost story as it has romance, action, and adventure moments throughout the entirety of the book, some are even mixed into one. It doesn't end with a death like most ghost stories do, but it does end with a cliffhanger.
Anna, one of the main characters in the story, is a young teenage girl who was killed while wearing a white dress. The blood from the slit on her throat sprayed all over the dress, hence the name "Anna Dressed in Blood". She is a legend in the small town of Thunder Bay, who supposedly murders anyone who enters her house. She captures the reader's attention constantly by showing a secretive nature she seems to have throughout the story.
The other main character of the story, Cas, is a ghost hunter. He believes it is his job to make his father's legend live on by wielding his knife, the athame. He believed that this job would be another typical hunt, and that he would be on the road again before he knows it, but little does he know that it won't be so easy. As he gets to know Anna, he develops a connection to her, which he later finds out is something much more.
If I were to rate this, I'd give it a 4.5/5 stars. I'd recommend it to readers who want a thrilling action story. It only costs about $10 and is just the first book in the series. This story will have you hanging onto every word and will leave you demanding more.
Anna Dressed in Blood” by Kendare Blake will make you squirm, say ‘aww’, and cheer. It begins when a boy named Theseus Cassio Lowood, or Cas for short, moves into his new hometown for work. However, he has a unique job as a ghost hunter. He always wants to do work on his own but he eventually makes friends; Thomas and Carmel. Together they try and ‘kill’ the infamous ghost in the town, the one known as Anna Dressed in Blood. But Cas becomes a little too interested and ends up with a different type of interest in her.
When he was young, Cas’s father was killed while fighting a strangely powerful ghost. Ever since then, Cas has been studying all kinds of exorcist techniques and training to get strong enough to one day face his father’s killer. But he underestimated just how strong he really is.
“Anna Dressed in Blood” was a very interesting story, I couldn’t put it down. It starts off as the standard ghost hunting story where the protagonist is going after some big legend,but this story incorporated a bit of forbidden love as well. It was also very descriptive and some scenes were so intense, I pictured them in my head as I was reading. If I were to rate this, I’d give it 4.5/5 stars.
Cas is a ghost hunter. His father was also, but was killed. Cas has been determined to be like his father and avenge his death. When he moves into town and meets Anna Dressed in Blood, a ghost who has killed all that walked in her house, except for Cas, it doesn't take long for him to fall in love. A romance doomed from the start as he is a ghost hunter and she is a ghost.
This is a very interesting book, although I haven't finished yet I still find it really compelling and exciting. I would recommend it for anyone who likes gory, bloody, love stories!
