Bookanistas: ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD & GIRL OF NIGHTMARES
However, I recently read Kendare Blake's ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD and GIRL OF NIGHTMARES for a freelance project. And I am so glad that I did because, scary aside, these books are wonderfully written.
I finished ANNA and immediately picked up GIRL OF NIGHTMARES. I wanted more of Cas and his unlikely cohorts--popular, pretty Carmel and nerdy yet magical Thomas--and more of that pitch-perfect narrative voice. Horror or not, this wimp is definitely on board to read anything by Kendare Blake for the sharp, gorgeous writing and richly drawn characters. Sure, these books are scary but really the first word I'd choose for Blake's work is high-quality.
