Almost To Die For Review

Twilight meets The Princess Diaries in the new series from the author of Honeymoon of the Dead On her sixteenth birthday, Anastasija Parker learns that her so-called deadbeat dad is actually a vampire king. And he wants Ana to assume her rightful position at his side, in spite of the fact that she has witch's blood running through her veins-from her mother's side.
Too bad witches and vampires are mortal enemies. And now Ana's parents are at each other's throats over her future. It's up to Ana to make a choice, but deciding your eternal destiny is a pretty big deal for a girl who just wants to get through high school.

For starters i need some time to laugh at the first sentence of the summary. "Princess Diaries"....yeah like no way. 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 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.
