Halloween Recommendation: Part Three

Anna Dressed in Blood
Publication Date: October 17th 2011
Publisher: Tor Teen
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.

 You have no idea how much I love Anna Dressed in Blood, look at the cover!

It's bloody and gory and a lot of limb pulling and dismemberments. Anna, pretty much has everything you want, creepy atmosphere, hauntings, badass characters, a lot of twistedness and...did I mention bloody, gory and a lot of limb pulling and dismemberments?
