Throwdown with Kendare Blake #3:
First of all, thanks to everyone who voted in the Throwdown. The comments were fantastic, and the voting stayed close throughout. But, at the end, a winner did emerge.
By one vote. So without further ado, I give you the winning Bromance: Harry Potter and Ron Weasley.
Ron! We won!
Faster Ron, faster! Yah! I feel like flashing something!
Yeah, that doesn’t scar me for life or anything. Aragorn and Legolas, it was very, very close. You’ve got nothing to be ashamed of.
I didn’t win? But I was all dressed up and everything…
Still, I bear this failure myself. Legolas is not to blame. He is only the Robin to my Batman.
Excuse me? Between the two of us, I am totally Batman.
Guys, you probably shouldn’t argue about this. Bad things have been known to-

Dammit. Well, anyway, congratulations to the Bromances. And congratulations to the winner of the $20 BN gift card!!!
Kimmel, if I haven’t emailed you yet then I will shortly. Well, I think that’s it for the Throwdowns. Thanks to everyone who followed along. Perhaps I’ll bring them back again next year, before Anna’s sequel comes out. Til then, Word to your Mother.
By one vote? Crazy! Thanks Kendare for hosting the Throwdown. It was a blast and we'll look forward to ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD as well as the sequel next year - not to mention newThrowdowns! More on the book and Kendare can be found below!
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.
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.
