Summary: Craving the spotlight is in her blood.

Ever since high school student Anastasija Parker discovered she was vampire royalty, her life has been sort of crazy. The half-vampire- half-witch just wants some normalcy, and trying out for the spring musical seems like the perfect fix.

But when the ancient talisman that stands between vampire freedom and slavery to witches is stolen, Ana has to skip rehersal and track down the dangerous artifact before someone uses it to make this year's curtain call her last...

My Thoughts: We are back with Ana and her weird world. Remember from Almost To Die For her mom's a witch and her dad's a vampire king. She's also still dating Nik (kind of) and is still promised to Elias. Ana still has deep feelings for Nik but I just didn't find him as charming in this novel. At times, he kind of acted like a stuck up snob. He knows he can get any girl he wants and he flat out admits it a few times. He also must complete killing a vampire to win his dad's approval. At times he insults Ana's species. Than there is Elias, sweet Elias. I still love Elias. He really cares about Ana and would do anything for her. 

Almost Final Curtain focuses on the rivalry between witches and vampires. There is a talisman that could enslave all vampires again and if it ends up in the wrong hands it could be deadly.

There is also a play that is taking place that Ana tries out for. The girl can really sing. We are also reacquainted with all of her friends and a few new friends. 

Most of all, I really loved how much we saw of Elias throughout Almost Final Curtain. I loved all the moments spent with him.  

Overall: I liked Almost Final Curtain enough but I didn't love it. This is what happens sometimes with the second book in a series. It kind of felt like a filler book. Thats ok sometimes, it just makes me long for more in the next book. I can't wait to see what happens between Ana and Nik. And Ana and Elias. I also can't wait to see what happens where both of her parents are concerned.

Cover: I like the cover. I like how dark her hair looks, like she's mysterious. I also like the red!

What I'd Give It:
