Synopsis: 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. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: 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.
Yet she spares Cas’s life. ©goodreads
This is a re-read, but I couldn’t remembered what happened in the story and now I know why.
I thought it was a horror story, yes there’s some ghost involve but it was not. It is far from scary, all you can feel here is romance. It was like a contemporary romance so the story didn’t lived up with the cover. It was pretty disappointing.
What I like was Anna’s atittude, she’s really cool when she killed Will (splits him into two)
Overall, if you are looking for a story who will scare the sh*t out of you, this is not your book. You’re just going to cringe. A lot of it.
