Kendare Blake is an import from South Korea who was raised in the United States by caucasian parents. You know, that old chestnut. She received a Bachelor's degree in Business from Ithaca College and a Master's degree in Writing from Middlesex University in London. She brakes for animals, the largest of which was a deer, which sadly didn't make it, and the smallest of which was a mouse, which did, but it took
forever. Amongst her likes are Greek Mythology, rare red meat and veganism. She also enjoys girls who can think with the boys like Ayn Rand, and boys who scare the morality into people, like Bret Easton Ellis.

Blake is an amazing writer. I almost could feel there, with the characters. It was sometimes an intense reading, and I loved it.

Cas is a brave teenager that does what his dad did before he died: kills dead people. He lives with his mum and she tries everything to protect him, but she doesn't stop him of going out to "do the job" even if she knows how dangerous that can be. She has other ways of protecting him: some really special ways, since she is a witch.

He doesn't make friends easily, but in this school he finds two special people who will help him, no matter what they know about him and what he does, no matter what they see and know.
It's not easy to persuade everyone, and some people will be lost in the way, but the true friends will be there for him, and, God, he will need them.
Cas has some questions that need answers, but some of them he doesn't even dare to question again. He developed a way of doing things by himself.

Anna isn't who I thought she would be, it was surprising to see the way thing develop between her and Cas and his friends. I loved her! Mysterious, dark, but at the same time so lovely and sweet. Anna is not just another ghost like the others Cas found before.
Her story is touching and really made me feel mad when I read about it... maybe almost as mad as Cas and his friends. It makes total sense what she does after you know what's behind.
She and Cas develop a different relationship than he had with other ghosts and that she had with anyone...well...ever, apparently.

With what we can read in the Synopsis, this could be a very boring, predictive ghost book, but in the end it just turned out to be real fun and nice to read... and, yeah, even beautiful... even with all the blood and dead people and all.

Blake is extraordinary, brilliant. When you think you know what will happen next: you're wrong!

The plot is original, really well thought and imaginative.
It's not a book about some "vampire slayer", or a book about a regular ghostbuster. It's a book that deals with magic, too, with heritage. If you like the genre, you really need to read it.
I can't tell you how much I loved it by words. All I can say is Blake's writing is perfect for this story, the descriptions, the dialogs between the characters, the stories of those who are dead, the way the action takes place. It makes sense, and you will need to read more, because you'll want to know what happens next.
