Publisher's Summary

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 atheme, 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. She still wears the dress she wore in the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, it is 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.

Great story for YA readers but ...

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration was a bit off - full of odd pauses and unnatural emphasis on words. Also the accents and voice characterizations were awful and distracting.


Was Anna Dressed in Blood worth the listening time?

No. Do not listen to the audio version of this book. This is a great book for YA readers looking for a "creepy" read, but this audio version does not do the story justice and is very disappointing.

Good story, terrible narrator

What did you like best about Anna Dressed in Blood? What did you like least?

This story was really fun...Just make sure you're not eating while you're listening! Some descriptions of the fights/attacks are gross (but good!).

Good character arcs, interesting twists at the end.


Would you be willing to try another one of August Ross’s performances?

August Ross is a bad narrator because he basically sounds like a terrible actor. He is awkward. Unfortunately, I think his reading loses a lot of the humor of Cas.
