Well, I’m sorry for not really posting on a regular basis during the summer. It was due to a whole bunch of factors that I’m not willing to share. Anyway, I recently finished reading the Vampire Princess series by Tate Hallway. You can find the synopses here. Personally, I liked the series as a relatively light summer read that deals with vampires and witches. Anyway, I’m going to do a review for the entire series because I feel that each book does not have enough content to justify doing an individual post.
For the first book of Almost To Die For, I felt that there wasn’t enough action and a little bit too much exposition. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I know that for the first book in a series, there has to be some background information given in order to draw a reader in. However, I think that the author spent a little bit too much time on explaining things, and not enough on the action. I would have to like to have seen some of the information revealed in the following two books.
For the second book of Almost Final Curtain, there wasn’t much to review. I think that the vampire origin story that was given was interesting. I’ve never heard of witches intentionally creating a creature, in this case a vampire, in order to do their bidding. The closest I’ve heard or read was the origins of vampires in Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles.
For the last book of Almost Everything, again there wasn’t there much to review. Personally, I would have liked to have seen an epilogue. Just a heads up, a spoiler alert right now. The reason that I would have liked to have seen an epilogue is because I kinda want to know Ana eventually tells the guy she eventually hooks up with the truth about what she is truly is, a half-witch and half-vampire.
