Waiting on Wednesday (5)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My Waiting-On Wednesday this week is:

Title: Anna Dressed in Blood
Author: Kendare Blake
Release Date: August 30th, 2011

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.-- Goodreads

This book sounds absolutely creepy and wonderful. Maybe it's my fan-girly ways over the show "Supernatural" and the synopsis sounds a bit like this would fit right in with a show like that. Maybe it's the mystery. I really want to know WHY this horrifying ghost spares Cas, when she doesn't spare anyone else. But I also want to know about her. What exactly happened to her? Was her murder about something in particular that might have to do with Cas? Yes, it must be the intriguing mystery. I love supernatural, dark and haunting tales... and I'm sure to probably love this. I'm also maddeningly in love with this cover.
