Cas the main protagonist of this book happens to be the narrator, and male POV was a refreshing change.

The book starts with Cas hunting down a ghost and killing it. After that, he relocates to Thunder Bay. That's where Anna is. Something is changing in Thunder Bay, and Anna has become more aggressive. Anna no longer kills discreetly. She kills one of Cas' schoolmate in front of his very eyes. But for some reason, she spares his life. Cas also feels an unexplained attachment to Anna.

That is the synopsis. All right, first things first now!

COVER LUST :P Anna Dressed in Blood has one of THE most amazing covers I have seen so far. It is simply stunning.

CAS: He is an engaging protagonist who knows his job, and the responsibility that comes with it. He is sympathetic towards the ghost he has to finish, realizing that probably none of them deserved what they got. But nonetheless he has to do a job.

ANNA: She is unlike any other ghost Cas has come across. For one, she is by far THE most powerful ghost Cas has faced, and another startling fact is that, Anna is aware that she is dead which is unusual. Then again, apart from the awareness, there is a power that binds her to the house, which gives her the strength to kill everyone that enters the house.

Anna is a ghost, after Vampires, werewolves, fae and what not, Anna comes across as a breath of fresh air. For once, the main character does not have the responsibility to save the entire WORLD.

Yes, his world is different from normal, but it is contained and controlled. All the secondary characters are developed in a commendable manner.
