Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Anastasija Parker is turning sixteen, she would like to spend the night have a party with friends (well the two she has). However she comes from a long line of witches and tonight she has to go through her initiation into the coven. Despite her repeated rants that she does not carry the magic in her, her mother is certain she will be just fine.
Well, Ana can honestly say life has abruptly changed. Her father, who she didn't even know she had, shows up on her doorstep wanting her to come with him. Her mother is in absolute tizzy and wielding magic to banish him, if that was not enough her dad is a vampire. Ana is a mixed blood and finds herself torn between two sides. She also is finding out the boy she likes has a crush on her as well, but there is an attraction to her guard that she can't seem to forget as well. All Ana want to do is be a normal sixteen year old, but it looks like fate has other plans.
I thought this was very entertaining. I did have an issue with that Ana was so forgiving to her mom, I think I would rebel a bit over the betrayal of her dad. It was a little angsty with the two boys, but that is to be expected when you are torn between two worlds. I am rooting for Elias though.
