For some reason I've been on a horror kick recently and have read some truly disturbing YA novels. The most chilling read I've had lately is:
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Cas Lowood has unusual skill. Like his father before him, he kills the dead.
Kendare Blake has created a world in which things that go bump in the night are very real and likely to kill you. Cas is an interesting and wonderfully flawed hero, while Anna's character opens the story to new directions that the reader doesn't expect. Secondary characters are just as important and well-developed and help bring Blake's world to life. Anna Dressed in Blood perfectly balances horror, action and emotion to leave the reader anxiously waiting for the next volume.
