Watch out for the women in white!

11 Jul

One final day to download the latest audiobook pairing from SYNC! This week’s pairing is the one I have been most anticipating from this summer’s SYNC schedule. And not just because I like a good ol’ spooky story, though there’s that, but because I’ve heard such rave reviews about both of these books and, more importantly in this case, the audio versions of them.

The following two titles are available for download through the end of the day (once downloaded you can listen at your leisure – though fashionably before Labor Day with this pair):

Anna Dressed in Blood
By Kendare Blake
Read by August Ross
Published by AudioGO

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered 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: track, 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, now stained red and dripping with 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. But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas’s life.

The Woman in White
By Wilkie Collins
Read by Ian Holm

Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award

One night on the road to London, a young drawing master, Walter Hartright, meets a mysterious woman dressed all in white and answers her pleas for help. But who is she and why is she being followed by two men? And what is her connection with his pupil Laura Fairlie, the woman he secretly loves? Wilkie Collins’ masterpiece of terrible secrets, concealed identities, abductions, fraud, cruel aristocrats and sinister foreigners is a mesmerising read.
