Another book I just adored

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, this book was so much fun! The narrator’s voice is perfect and I fell in love with him in the first fight against a hitchhiking ghost. He’s the right balance of determined lone wolf and lonely teenager, cracking wise and wishing he was old enough and strong enough and smart enough to kill the thing that ate his father.

I plowed through the book at lightning speed. It reads really fast, never lost my interest, and even though it danced along the edge of predicability, it threw in some gruesome surprises.

I give it the five star for book design, too. Not only is the cover lovely, the interior text is printed in the color of dried blood. It’s the attention to detail that puts this over the top.

I’m so excited to discover there’s a second book in the series. Soon it shall be mine!

  1. The cover is lovely! That’s what drew me to the book initially, as well as the good reviews. Unfortunately, the book didn’t work for me and I didn’t finish it, but I seem to be in the minority there, and I’m glad you enjoyed it! It really is a cool concept.
