5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive and enjoyable read 19 February 2016

Fifty percent vampire by D.K. Janotta

Living with your mother and stepfather can be difficult at the best of times but it's even worse when they are full vampires and you are a half vampire. Add to that and evil, sadistic step brother and your life can be downright miserable. This is the life of seventeen year old Astrid Sonnschein, until she convinces her mother and stepfather, George, to let her stay with her mothers human sister and go to school in the human world.
Life in the human world is ten times better, despite the bullies and the boys that get too hands on.
Astrid soon finds a group of close friends and is attracted to the towns young police officer, Michael Hanson.
Life in the human world doesn't seem so bad after all until the other boys she has shown an Interest in and even her enemy get murdered and the police see her as a possible suspect.
Half of the town agree, even with no evidence to back it up. But officer Mike is not so easily convinced and seems to like Astrid as much as she likes him.
More threats come from the vampire world with the ultimatum, get turned or die, but Astrid is determined to stand up and fight for the human life she so dearly craves.
The story line was good and the characters, believable and likeable, well some of them, others were horrid and easy to hate.
The ending was a little surprising but good and I think that I would enjoy reading a book two.
Recommended to young adults and adults alike who love coming of age, supernatural stories.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth my time to finish. 3 September 2016
By Jackie B - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I really just couldn't get into this book, I only made it to about page 50 before quitting. Those 50 pages seemed to drag on forever, found myself thinking of other things I could be doing instead of reading. Maybe if there had been more background info in the beginning to give me more of a reason to care about the characters, would have helped drive more interest in the characters, other than some part vampire girl wanting to go to school to be like a normal girl but not wanting to give up her blood drinking habit though it sounded like she could if she wanted to. I also could not get past the POV jumps, which were terribly confusing, trying to figure out whose thoughts you were reading at each chapter. Maybe at the chapter heading, state whose POV. None of the characters inspired any interest at all for me. Maybe somebody else can enjoy this, I just couldn't.
3.0 out of 5 stars It was a nice, easy read 21 September 2016

I was given this book for an honest review.
It was a nice, easy read. But I had a hard time finishing it. It did not really hold my interest.
Astrid is 50% vampire, or is she. Shes trying to find herself, she goes from living in a vampire community to living with humans. In the vampire community she has to deal with herr stepdad and adopted brother.She is alone and has to be protected from the others in the community who want her dead or changed. She is put thru alot while living the humansalso. She doesn't seem to fit in either place.
Mike has his own demons but becomes Astrids savior. The two meet and somehow fall inlove. I'm not sure how that happened. Astrid has someone out to get her. The end is a little surprising but it all works out in the end. I love a HEA
4.0 out of 5 stars Just your typical love struck, high school, teenage, half vampire, half human girl. 12 September 2016

I really give this book a 3.5 star rating, but you can't give half ratings on here.

Astrid is a half vamp / half human hybrid, that lives with her mom, step-dad, and crazy step-bro Angus. On her birthday, she decides she wants to try living as a human, so she goes to live with her Aunt and Cousin in the middle of Dullsville.

I rather liked Astrid, but found her a bit too human for my taste. I would have liked to see her go more into her vampness, and have been less afraid of the typical vamp lore cliches. Some of those got a bit over the top, but some like..the Sun.. didn't really affect the vamps, so I found that a bit confusing.

There were parts of the story that I thought moved way to fast. Her love interests, the seasonal changes, the time she spent in Vampville, and the murder mysteries flew by without much happening. It would have been more enjoyable if it was slowed down a bit, so Astrid could follow up on her crushes, and possibly help solve the murders. I liked her relationship with Daniel and Officer Hansen. It was cute to see her and Mike interact, even if she was driving him nuts. LOL. I found those awkward moments adorable.

There were several unexpected twists that kept the story changing, and that was a nice touch. It will definitely be interesting to see what happens to Astrid in further volumes, as the ending was a bit of a mystery. ^_^

Overall, I enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I recommend this to anyone that loves a nice teen vampire, high school, urban fantasy read.

Hopefully the next book has more Supernatural shenanigans, Astrid x Mike interaction, tormenting from Angus, Vampville tours, and more of Astrid's birth mystery explained.

4.0 out of 5 stars How amazing is a story which is not all rainbows and ... 29 June 2016

I received this book free in an exchange for honest an review thanks to YA Bound book tours

This is such a compelling story with a dark element, I seriously could not put this book down and I ended up reading it in one sitting! How amazing is a story which is not all rainbows and sunshine for once and has a very capitivating plot that just draws the reader in? Not many do

Astrid doesn't have a easy life being a half vampire, she is constantly tortured by Angus and George. She is a quick thinker, fiery and very compassionate. Anything she does you know she does is it wholeheartedly I found it interesting how she acts like a magnet and draws the 'death' of her class mates in and being the newcomer she is automatically perceived as guilty of charge. Sometimes society, rumors and people within the community are perfect examples of how they can make someone lose confidence in themselves and feel ugly. This was evident in the book and I liked how I could relate to it when somestimes we are labelled as guilty for a crime we did not committ.

Mike is perfect in every way, I mean literally! He has the good looks, perfect body was a ace athlete only to become a officer and whilst he broke many hearts I was happy to realise the mystery behind it (leaving the city). Although you don't find that out until towards the end of the book, there was enough mystery and suspense in this book to keep you interested. What I like most about him is he trusts his instincts (well I hope so anyways) and keeps the evidence to how it is rather than go by confessions, the way it should be. I can't really say I enjoyed his partner, I found her very annoying and just reading the signals wrong. Like hello lady can you not take a hint???

George and Angus are the antagonist in this story. I can't decide who I hate more George or Angus? I hate them both for very different reasons but I am so glad when of them dies, he so deserves a worse and more painful death but death nonetheless.

Hmm..comment on the plot? What I liked mostly about this were how strong Astrid was shown despite not being a vampire, the love interest, her friend Rachel is amazing like seriously! The plot is very intensive too like each layer is revealed only once you peel it and get deeper into the surface like an onion! Weird comparison I know! But its true, it really is a remarkable story and one you should try if you love vampires! I'm guessing there is a second book since the way it ended, I hope so!
