2012’s Anna Dressed in Blood is the first volume in Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood modern horror series.
Teenage Theseus Cassio “Cass” Lowood was given three things by his father:
- a moderately embarrassing name,
- an athame, and
- a determination to pursue his late father’s career as a ghost-hunter.
Cass transfers from high school to high school, chasing rumours of unquiet dead; he is supported in this mission by his widowed mother. He believes he is successful in his quest; he has dispatched many revenants with his inherited athame.
His latest quest will take him to Canada’s Thunder Bay, where Anna Dressed in Blood will turn his worldview upside down.
