I am sooo late today posting my teaser! My boys have kept me busy all day and I hadn’t already got this post done and scheduled like usual.

So, anyway, I am cheating again with my teaser this week. I am not actually reading this book at the moment and won’t be until September, most likely, because as from tomorrow until the end of August I’m concentrating on review books for the Review Copy Cleanup Challenge. I really wanted to share this book though so I thought I’d use it as my teaser for this week. Oh, and as usual I seem to have a problem sticking to just 2 sentences!

My teaser is from page 89 of  Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. It was published in the UK by Orchard on 5th July.

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

“My heart is pounding in my chest, and the ache in my head is unbearable. It tells me to lie down. It tells me that I can’t get out. I don’t have the strength to fight. Anna is going to kill me … in her dress made of blood”

Oooh, creepy, huh?!

I don’t normally do this for my teasers but I wanted to share the synopsis with you as I just love the sound of this book. And don’t get me started on the cover, it’s soo creepy but soo pretty too!!

Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story…

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. 

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping 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.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

    I loved Anna Dressed in Blood so much! It reminds me of Supernatural 😀 I am so excited for Girl of Nightmares. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it and thanks for stopping by my Teaser!

    • Kelly

      You’re welcome, thank you to you too! I haven’t heard anyone say anything bad about ADIB so that’s making it worse that I haven’t got time to read it right now!

    Katja – Huh, I just checked the UK Kindle store and it’s £4.49 which is more than I paid for my paperback! Crazy! (WP wouldn’t let me reply to your comment directly!)

    • Katja

      That is crazy! I’m in the US and it’s still only 2.99 here. I have the hardcover I bought months ago and it was still worth every penny!
