Pequena biografia
Kendare Blake is an import from South Korea who was raised in the United States by caucasian parents. You know, that old chestnut. She received a Bachelor's degree in Business from Ithaca College and a Master's degree in Writing from Middlesex University in London. She brakes for animals, the largest of which was a deer, which sadly didn't make it, and the smallest of which was a mouse, which did, but it took
forever. Amongst her likes are Greek Mythology, rare red meat and veganism. She also enjoys girls who can think with the boys like Ayn Rand, and boys who scare the morality into people, like Bret Easton Ellis.

Ho iniziato a leggere questo libro pensando che fosse il solito urban fantasy YA: strappalacrime e coinvolgente come una saliera.

Marcia indietro.

C'è un sacco di roba truculenta in questo libro (ma, tranquille, niente di ingestibile...) e questo mi è piaciuto molto. Sgozzamenti di fantasmi e fantasmi che mangiucchiano la gente a morsi. Fico (per noi che lo leggiamo, un po' meno per i morsicati, ma, si sa, mettere d'accordo tutti è sempre un problema). E ce ne rendiamo conto fin dalle prime pagine.

Unica nota negativa in merito... ma come fa la polizia a non indagare su tutti questi scomparsi, morti o masticati che sono nominati nel libro? Boh...

Il protagonista, Cas, è un uccisore di fantasmi. Ammazza quelli che ammazzano la gente in ricordo delle loro morti efferate. E ce ne sono un po' di tutti i tipi... Cas è un esperto in materia, sebbene sia solo un adolescente (ne ha fatti fuori 20, lui, mica pizze e fichi!). Tutto questo in preparazione del momento in cui andrà a caccia del Fantasma con la F maiuscola: quello che ha ucciso suo padre, che praticava la sua stessa "professione".

Nel suo grandioso progetto, che lo gasa tantissimo (e sì, il ragazzo sa di sapere il fatto suo... e non ne fa mistero, dato che le vicende sono narrate da lui in prima persona), trova però un ostacolo: Anna Vestita di Sangue.

Posso affermare senza ombra di dubbio che la prima volta che la incontra se la fa decisamente sotto (per sua stessa ammissione). Anna si presenta come una forza della natura, una Dea della Morte dal potere illimitato, Sovrana e Imperatrice del suo Regno di Morte. Nonostante la situazione drammatica (e uno che ci rimette le penne, ma, va be', non si reggeva...), quasi viene da ridere al pensiero di Super-Cas sbatacchiato come un tappeto da Anna.

Da qui in poi diventerà una sfida. Cas deve sconfiggere Anna. Facile a dirsi... Anche perché si viene a sapere che Anna...

Ironico e volgare, Cas è un cattivo ragazzo assolutamente irresistibile. Di Anna posso dire che preferisco il suo lato oscuro da Dea della Morte a quello di povera ragazza assassinata... perché come Dea della Morte, Anna non ha rivali...

I usually don't read ghost stories but I read Graveminder and I've been rewatching seasons 1 and 2 of Supernatural so I felt in the mood to read Anna Dressed in Blood. I was actually really looking forward to reading this book, but I was kind of disappointed. I was hoping to read a book that was kind of like Supernatural. You know, with a guy traveling around killing ghosts, but the romance kind of killed it for me. It just seemed out of place, I think it could have waited for a later book when the author develops their relationship more. On the plus side there was quite a few gross descriptions thrown in there, so that made it feel more like a horror book.

The characters were ok, not boring or annoying but I didn't feel a connection to Cas or any of the other side characters. There just wasn't any spark. Nevertheless, I will say that Anna was pretty darn cool. She kicked butt. I loved the last battle scene, it was awesome!

I felt like the main villain was rushed. You find out about him half way through the book and then the conclusion just seemed rushed. And can I say I hate Voodoo. Even The Princess and the Frog creeps me out. I just don't like it.

The writing style was good and the story was fine, but at times I think it lacked believability. Overall, it was okay read, I'll probably read the sequel eventually but the book wasn't as good as I had hoped.
