Theseus Cassio isn't your normal teenage boy. He's a ghost hunter. After his father died while hunting a ghost, Cas vowed to avenge his father's death.
Cas gets a request to track down Anna Dressed In Blood, a tortured spirit who haunts her old house, killing whoever dares step forth into it.
Except, when Cas get's thrown into the house by butt-faced Mike, Anna spares him.
Despite the feelings Cas grows for Anna, he is determined to bring her down. Or, is he?
First and foremost, I must say that this would make a kick-ass movie if done right, no?
Some of the images this book gave me were downright frightening. That one particular scene when Anna peers out the window in her "evil" form has just stuck itself into my mind, and it's creeping me out.
Speaking of Anna, I felt so much for her. Her backstory just broke my heart into pieces. I was hoping her the best throughout the story.
Cas, as good as he was, bothered me a bit. His cocky attitude just got to me sometimes. He is the only one who can hunt ghosts. He is the only one who can wield the athame. Jesus, boy, who made you God?
At the same time, I loved his character, and as weird as it sounds, I loved his love for Anna. It was so deranged, but at the same time, cute.
This is probably one of my favorites this year. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
I was never a fan of ghost stories, but I think everyone should give this book a try. (:
