Original Cover:
When you're being hunted, who can you trust?

For the first time since she escaped from her school many months ago, Eve can sleep soundly. She's living in Califia, a haven for women, protected from the terrifying fate that awaits orphaned girls in The New America.

But her safety came at a price: She was forced to abandon Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. When Eve gets word that Caleb is in trouble, she sets out into the wild again to rescue him, only to be captured and brought to the City of Sand, the capital of The New America.

Trapped inside the City walls, Eve uncovers a shocking secret about her past--and is forced to confront the harsh reality of her future. When she discovers Caleb is alive, Eve attempts to flee her prison so they can be together--but the consequences could be deadly. She must make a desperate choice to save the ones she loves . . . or risk losing Caleb forever.

In this breathless sequel to "Eve," Anna Carey returns to her tale of romance, adventure, and sacrifice in a world that is both wonderfully strange and chillingly familiar.

     În Cartea întâi a seriei, într-o lume distrusă de o molimă care a făcut ravagii, Eve este obligată să se despartă de Caleb. În Sacrificiul, o găsim captivă în Oraşul de Nisip, capitala Noii Americi, acum aflat sub conducerea Regelui. Şi asta, după ce încercase să-l salveze pe Caleb, despre care aflase că este în pericol. Acum, după ce descoperă multe lucruri dureroase legate de trecutul ei, ar putea avea o viaţă liniştită şi lipsită de griji în Palatul Regelui. Dar Caleb reapare şi ea se strecoară afară din palat să-l întâlnească – pe el şi pe rebelii care intenţionează să pornească lupta împotriva monarhiei care i-a transformat pe oameni în sclavi. Lucrurile nu merg însă conform planului, iar Eve ajunge în situaţia disperată de a fi obligată să accepte un târg cu Regele.
     Într-o lume ostilă şi dură, în care orice pas poate fi ultimul, iubirea reuşeşte oare să supravieţuiască? Şi cu ce preţ? Cu un dureros SACRIFICIU!

On my Wish List (9): Anna dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Wednesday, June 06, 2012
          I must admit that although I've seen everyone getting excited over this book I wasn't really interested in the subject  of it. Now the book will be released in Romania at Leda Books and today was the first time I've actually read the description. I don't know how on earth could I've missed such an original book, not to mention that I've always loved the cover.


     Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
     When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
Where to buy: Anna dressed in Blood by  Kendare Blake

Some Goodread thoughts:
Lisa Desrochers rated it 5 stars 

"This book is just bunches of WOW and OMG! You won't be able to put it down! Promise!
 Emily May rated it 4 stars
"Anna Dressed in Blood was a surprisingly good read. I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, something typical of young adult urban fantasy perhaps... same old characters, lots of romancing, maybe even an interesting little mystery to give the book some semblance of plot if we're lucky. I was really quite pleased with this exciting, slightly spooky, and wholly entertaining start to the series."
