★ "Abundantly original, marvelously inventive and enormous fun, this can stand alongside the best horror fiction out there. We demand sequels."

“At once as eerie and terrible as it is sad and romantic, Anna Dressed in Blood is not your normal ghost story….This captivating story pulls no punches, making for a breathless read that lingers in the imagination long after the last page is turned.”
“Effectively blending horror and romance, Blake delivers an exciting and witty gothic ghost story.”
"Anna Dressed in Blood is a dark and intricate tale, with a hero who kills the dead but is half in love with death himself. By the end of the book, you will be too. Spellbinding and romantic."
—Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times
"Cinematic and compelling. Blake’s smooth combination of gore and romance should have little problem attracting the Twilight crowd.”
★ "The novel is a love story, a high-school buddy story, a story of revenge and tragedy, and a bildungsroman."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"It's the old boy meets girl story, if the boy is a wry, self-destructive ghost-hunter bent on avenging his father and the girl is a homicidal ghost trapped in a house full of everyone she's ever murdered. Needless to say, Cas and Anna are my new favorite twosome. When I got to the last page, I flipped back to the first."
