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. 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’ life.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“ A dark and intricate tale…Spellbinding and romantic.” Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Cas and Anna are my new favorite twosome. When I got to the last page, I flipped back to the first.” Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author
“While most teens are still trying to figure out what they want to do with their life, Cas Lowood inherited his career: he kills the dead. Cas is a pro at sending ghosts to the afterlife, but meets his match when he goes toe to toe with Anna, a murderous witch living in a dilapidated old home. Can Cas do it? Is hunting ghosts what Cas wants to do with the rest of his life? And why is Anna so mad anyway? This is a deliciously creepy book.” BookRiot
“Abundantly original, marvelously inventive, and enormous fun, this can stand alongside the best horror fiction out there. We demand sequels.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Cinematic and compelling. Blake’s smooth combination of gore and romance should have little problem attracting the Twilight crowd.” Booklist
