    The problem with the current vampire genre is that it s like emo kids It takes itself VERY seriously, tries waaaaaaaay too hard and in the end looks all the same Oh, and it s fun to laugh at.It wasn t that nightworld was bad The writing flowed nicely, was descriptive and the world was well realized The characters were mostly interesting and different and all three stories stood well on their own as well as adding to each other.That s not to say, though, that I didn t have issues with this book.The third story, for me, really dragged and wasn t as good as the first two In fact, all three stories gave me strong recollections of Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries mixed together Not that, you know, I ve ever seen either showHas anyone else noticed that Chuck Bass usually looks really pissy I m serious I ve never seen someone master that bratty, I hope your head explodes from the sheer force of pissy that is emanating from my entire b...

    This book had three stories combined into one huge book, and though they have different people as the main characters you can see all the stories start to combine into one huge story Its about Vampires, werewolves, witches, anything that you can think of that is not normal These creatures live on the fringes of society and they don t interact with humans too much except to feed or eat them, but some Night people fall in love with Humans and they challenge the rules and their death by telling the humans about their world, the Night World I loved this book it was fast pace and i literally couldn t put it down unt...

    3 Stars This is a three in one compilation book, of which I seem to own most of L.J Smith s series in, and as such I will once again be attempting to review them in their singular parts rather than a cohesive whole I am downgrading this particular volume to a three as when I joined GRs I just sort of slapped a bunch of ratings in here and left it as that Though I like this series, this particular volume is not a favourite This series is all about SOLE MATES Oh, ermm, sorry, I mean SOUL mates Whatever The belief that there is one soul out there floating around in the world destined to be linked to your own And while I find this concept distasteful I have to appreciate that Smith is seemingly using it s reoccurrence to mend or break the old school rules that inter species or race dating is punishable by death within the Night World Although I have to wonder if she herself finds it distasteful too because it certainly reads like being tasered while simultaneously having pink glitter thrown in your eyes, a concept which does not sound even remotely pleasing The Secret Vampire2 StarsThis is easily my least favourite story of this volume While I appreciate Smith s introduction to her world here and the explanations of the varying natures of Night World creatures and how they differ from the standard definitions in other stories I am left unsatisfied by the characters themselves James is quite literally the most boring vampire I have ever read a...

    GENERAL OVERVIEW At first glance, this book appeared daunting because of its sheer length, 729 pages, and the fact that it s comprised of three novels in one Once I started reading Secret Vampire, I discovered that this was going to be a quick and rather boring read It was similar to Twilight, although it should be noted that the original printing predated Meyer s series The characters were flat and undeveloped making it difficult to relate to them The plots of each story were rushed and relationships magically happened They were simply explained away by the idea of love at first sight or the fact that everyone was pairing up with their soul mates The only writing technique that stood out was the connections Smith made to the characters throughout all three stories Coincidentally enough, they shared familiar blood ties I couldn t tell if this was employed to transition between the three novels, or if Smith was planning to create a new version of the Night World adapted and changed by this specific family I guess I will have to read the rest of the series to discover this mystery, but that will probably not happen since I was so disappointed with the first book There was no wow factor to keep me engaged, especially considering all the hype built around the never ending battle of Smith versus Meyer I m still considering The Awakening, which I hear is a better reflection of Smith s talents...

    Night World is basically a series of short paranormal romance stories for young adults The premise here is that there are Night People vampires, witches, werewolves who live among regular humans and who are prohibited from disclosing any information about the secret world or fall in love with mortals Each story in the series is about a supernatural creature falling in love with a regular person.The first story Secret Vampire is centered around Poppy, who just found out she has a terminal form of cancer and has weeks to live The only way for her to continue her existence is to be turned a vampire, and accidentally her long time best friend and crush James is a vampire who could help her out It s a nice story, with quite a morbid air about it due to scenes of death, funeral, grave digging, etc Daughters of Darkness is a kind of a mystery which follows 3 vampire sisters arriving to a small town Their vampire aunt is recently killed, and a series of equally disturbing events follows Human sister and brother Mark and Mary Lynnette get accidentally involved in the whole ordeal They discover the true nature of their strange neighbors and to add to it, Ma...

    I decided to re read this and annotate this, I haven t read it in years and it was pretty nostalgic to do so L J Smith has such an easy writing style to get into and her characters are always super likeable.I missed simple books like these, they re all under 200 pages each, they re so easy to r...

    I can hardly believe alot of the reviews I have been readingYou have three stories which are tied together loosely Each story has basically the same and the plot line, which is the point, but then they are never expounded upon You would need less than ten pages, per story line, to tell each of the three stories that were toldthe rest was ridiculous and repetitive to the point of being ludicrous I am sorry that I always finish what I beg...

    This is catalogued in our library as a mystery Why I have no idea It is really not a mystery series at all That said I really liked this series These are reprints and were highly recommended in an issue of Booklist There are Werewolves, vampires, and witches that all live in the secret society of the Night World Humans are not just the enemy, but are considered vermin Each book seems to pick up a different story line about the world It was odd, but I think Stephanie Meyer has to have read this series at some point There is the idea in the series that everyone has a soulmate IT really really reminded of the whole idea of imprinting in...
