What to say... This book utterly blew me away! This was possibly the best book I have read all year so far and I am honestly having trouble keeping the excitement inside of me, writing this review, to stop me from leaping into the air! Words can simply not explain how I feel about this book. It was such a beautiful, gorgeous deadly book! Anna dressed in blood will chill you to the bone but leave you wanting so much more. This book is so exquisite and fantastic that my nose was nested in the pages from start to finish. It gave me a gruesome thrill ride from the start and even as it scared me I couldn't let go. I was up to midnight reading this novel, and then I would pull the covers over my head and go to sleep.

The book follows Cassio a ghost hunter, as he travels to kill a new ghost Anna, but she is way more powerful than any others and he starts to flu in love with her. then she stars to have a her past uncovered and more people get involved and it becomes crazy good to the extent I want to shower it will gold glitter but that would only ruin the spin of the book!

The plot. That gorgeous, gruesome, grilling plot that left you on the tips of your toes till the very end. What to say? The plot is the most developed plot I have read in months and I followed it perfectly. It was easy, to follow and simple to understand. No hidden complications, just the amazing plot laid out in words for you to read. The plot was so complex yet such a pleasure to read. It was the best of the best and you can tell no corners have been cut with this book. Every ounce of effort has been put into this beautiful book. No complaints.

The writing was like the scroll of angel. Like a piece of heaven was sliced up and placed in Blake so she could bless us with her articulate wording. It was one of the most gorgeous, whimsical proses, I have read in such a long time that it made me just lie in bed and go over the words I had read and appreciate them for the pure amazingness they were. The description was almost lyrical and there was just the balance between the storyline, description and dialogue.

All the characters were so well formed, that it led your brainy o believe that these amazing characters had been your brain the whole time and that radiant the book awakened them, which was amazing because it made you feel like they were a part of you, and you exe priced every thing with them, which is what made the book so amazing and visual. Because the characters became your friends. Also they were all so well formed as well. nothing was hidden from you. You knew everything about them and their history except for what was actually meant to be discovered later no in the book.

Over all the book was captivating, intoxicating and beautifully written. It completely fazed me and I was put in a trance from the moment I read it, and unique, one of a kind amazing story playing out in my mind. I am so lost for words with this book that I don't what to say, but I will say one more thing about it: Perfect.
