No just NO! To say the least, this book did not please me as much and I would not count it as one of those adventurous roller coaster rides that pull me into action and make me wish I was the lead girl. Also, I almost assuredly would not recommend this 'novel' to anyone with good taste in books or otherwise. I wasn't sure what to expect when I got my hands on this book.

I love a good paranormal, and so I decided to give it a shot. I hate to say that Ana's voice narrating the story took a few fifty or so pages to get used to.

I understand writing first person POV like an inner monologue, but some of it was a little too immature for my taste. However, once I could look past that, I actually found her to be quite likable and immediately started getting into the book. The other 3. The other characters were well fleshed out and fun to interact with in the story. The bad guy was a douche, as expected. The best friends stayed friends, though there was definitely some tension in the story - as there is in real life with some friends some times.
I have to say that I was a little surprised with Nik's reaction to vampires, especially after he seemed bitter at first to know he had to follow in his father's footsteps. So, when he went all anti-vampire, I was a little baffled. I loved Elias and can say nothing wrong about him - though, like Ana, my feelings for him conflict with Nik's I'll have to say that the climax was a little anti-climatic for me. I thought it was good, but the author spent so much time building up the story to that point, it seemed very rushed and short I like more action in my climax - more airtime.
However, this is the first book in a series, so maybe this book is just building to even more awesomeness in the next? I sure hope so! For starters i need some time to laugh at the first sentence of the summary. It has the idea of "simple girl turn to princess" but that's all. Not the magic of Princess Diaries. It was more interesting than Twilight though.
While the book starts pretty much good and okay, with the time it becoming confusing and with no real purpose. It has vampires to be all strong and mighty, but one human with no real talent sneak up on them more than once. The writer For starters i need some time to laugh at the first sentence of the summary. The writer can't seem to decide what she wants for her character. She is in and out in her old and new life all the time.
And i can accept that but not that fast. It was going so fast, that you didn't even have time to release how the new environment was. The story really had potential. It was clever and i liked the idea, but it was not written nicely.
It made me bored from the very first pages, and it make predictable when it could have some really good twists. And as at the start i liked the main character, at the end i came to hate her since she was once again one of the those characters who just like to play with boys but at the same time are playing it naive and all. Can't say i enjoy it. It was just a read, and in some years i will probably don't even remember that i've read that book. The story is a solid read, but I found myself neither getting really excited about the story but not really disliking it also. The strongest character is Anastasija Ana.
She is an outcaste in school and has few friends. We learn in the story that her mother is a witch and her father a vampire. I disliked the parents characters throughout the book, especially the mother, whose attempt to The story is a solid read, but I found myself neither getting really excited about the story but not really disliking it also.

I disliked the parents characters throughout the book, especially the mother, whose attempt to control her daughter through casting a spell on her left me a very negative impact on me. I did enjoy the two male love interests which were at opposite ends of the story, of course. But an event at the end of the book did set up an interesting scenario for the next novel.

I'll probably read the next one, but I'm not super excited for it or anything. It was very typical YA The writing is quick and cute and I read the book very fast.
I probably wouldn't recommend it to adults, but very good for teens. May 15, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: vampires-gods-monsters , nook. I really enjoyed this book! Ana is a witch who surprise! This is a battle of sides that want to claim her as their own. The ending has a few surprises that added some twist and excitement. I really liked Elias and hope all goes well for him. And there is Nickolai that I am not sure what to think about, but I am sure the author has him there to stir up trouble until the end.

Shelves: vampires , favorites , romantic-subplot , ya , series-trilogy , good-strong-females-role-models , to-buy , needs-review , paranormal , devils-and-demons. Almost to Die For is about a teenage girl who finds out she is a Vampire princess on the night of her witch initiation ceremony. Unfortunately, neither her parents nor the two species get along. Rarely do these heroines come across as well rounded, and frankly, some of them perpetuate a lot of internalized misogyny.
I loved that Almost to Die For deftly avoids these traps well within the first few chapters. Within a few chapters, I started daydreaming about making writers read and study this book. Through watching Ana deal with the in and outs of high school, we get a pretty good, well rounded insight into Ana.
