Series: Night World #7
Author: LJ Smith
Overall Rating: 4 stars

I really liked this one, at first I wasn't sure because I'm kind of becoming cynical when it comes to love stories, especially in paranormal books as it tends to be a love story between an alpha and an omega figure. However, Jez and Morgead were both strong main characters which I really enjoyed, it definitely added to the story rather than take a

Oh! This one was even better. I loved the way that the books are connected with each other. Lisa Jane Smith must be a great storyteller because her imagination is making me twist in my seat and wonder what will happen next in the series.

This book is the story of Jez, a half-vampire half-human creature, who when learns about her mixed origins decides to leave from her gang because she knows that they will kill her if they find out what she is. But as the end of the World comes closer, old prophe

So I really like Jez, she is a likable character. I think she was in love with Morgead even before leaving, whch is probably right. Hugh an old Soul she loved, but could never have was a nice touch.

So she was sent to invetigate, and steal the Wild Power form her old friends. She found out about her link to Morgead, and feared it, I don't really know which is it I like the msot, but the story wasn't boring, and Claire was not so annoying, as I thought she would be.

The end was the right one, and

Huntress is book 7 in the Night World series.

Another of my most favourites!

We find out about the 4 Wild Powers. I remember reading this book for the first time and trying to figure who the Wild Power might be.

Still a favorite. Huntress was one of my top 3 favorite novels in the Night World series, if not my number 1 favorite and at this point it still is. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end and there was only a few minor issues that don't effect my rating at all.

The story starts with Jezebel (Jez) Redfern a vampire and her gang toying with some human gang members. It was a fun scene, even though I knew that the humans would probably be dead soon. It's during this part that Jez realize

Have I ever mentioned how much I simply ADORE this book? No? Oh, well, allow me to do so now.
I actually own the volume with 7, 8, and 9 all in one (as well as the first two volumes with 1-6) and have read them avidly. But I thought it would be easier to review a single story from the volume like this because then you know which one I'm talking about ;)
I'm definitely a huuuuuge fan of Ms. Smith. No one writes romance, action, and forbidden perfect love quite like her! I reread Huntress the other

oh man, i love this one. the rest of the series is pretty good, but the end of the world stuff is just an awesome story, and i love how ljs tells it. (well, except for the ending. since it doesn't exist. still. 13 years later.) but seriously, i still have notebooks from high school with the prophecies and speculation scribbled all over them. there was probably a whole section of the lj smith SAT (yes, my best friend and i created a standardized test) devoted to it.

my favorite of the nightworld series. i read it when i was fifteen before these kind of romance became common. i felt it was too short and so much could have happened e.g. the hugh crush.

i love jez. her name is like no other. she is a strong person and can be very fiery. she made me enjoy the book. her selflessness is very powerful yet real. her issues are serious yet mostly comical.

Jul 07, 2012 Alexandra rated it it was amazing
I loved this book! I must have read it a thousand times. Jez is a strong, stubborn and can take care of herself, something that is becoming rare in a lot of books i've read lately. The sopporting characters are important, they don't simply fade into the background like many other supporting characters do. Morgead is the ultimate bad boy: motorcycle, leather jacket, and a brooding attitude. I loved him. The dialoug with Jez and Morgead isn't so mushy that you roll your eyes, or so hostile that ...more

What can I say? I looooved it.

Pace? Quick with never a dull moment. Many twists and turns kept me absorbed and actually excited to keep reading. (believe me, that's hard to come by). I didn't feel boggled down by details; there's enough to satisfy the need for a backdrop and keep the story goin.

The main characters, Jez and Morgead were fiery, likable, and well rounded characters. I genuinely wanted them to be together and never found myself rolling my eyes at their dialog or declarations of love

Quick read, classic LJ Smith. I liked the characters here more than in some of her other Night World books - here they seemed more well-rounded, and the chemistry between the soul mates was much better. Plot-wise, it was pretty exciting, as this book begins to bring the whole series together, and draws more attention to the mythology of the Night World and its history. I also thought that this was one of the more believable Night World stories - girl runs away and then comes back to reclaim her ...more

I listened to this book as a filler since I am on a waiting list for another book at the library. I must say that even though this book is the 7th in a series, I felt like I could just pick up this book and fall into the middle of a story from another world. I liked it!

It feels like we're getting somewhere, but another character introduction book. I liked it, but I'm ready to read about everyone together.

Well, this story topples my list. New favorites:
1. Huntress & The Chosen (we have a tie- I can't pick!)
2. Secret Vampire
3. Soulmate
4. Spellbinder
5. Daughters of Darkness

*Of course, I'm adding Dark Angel to the very last of my list.
Finally, let's talk about THIS BOOK. The visions started when Jez was about to attack a human. For some weird reason, his whimpering reminded of what happened to Jez when she was very young. (view spoiler)

Night World #7: Huntress, by L. J. Smith

In "Huntress," Smith develops a larger story line for her Night World series. The new concept deals with the coming millennium and a possible apocalypse that will wipe out humanity and return the world to an age where the Night World rules, rather than exists on the fringes. Humanity will only be saved if four legendary Wild Powers are found and kept safe by Circle Daybreak. But the Night World is searching for these powers as well...

Enter Jez Redfern. Onc

Ok. First of all, I love the fact that the main character’s name is Jez (short for Jezebel) because we named our daughter Jezabelle, and I’ve always loved the name. Our Jezabelle goes by Jez or Jezi for short which is also pretty cool. This is the first time I’ve encountered this name out in the world, so to speak, so it was pretty exciting for me. LOL
Aside from amazing character names, I enjoyed Huntress for its other attributes as well. I liked how they played up the “human discrimination” ang

Un nouveau tome de la saga Night World et une grande évolution dans cet univers de la nuit. Les premiers tomes vivaient de façon autonome avec pour seuls fil rouge, Ash et les règles du Night World.

A présent, on retrouve une continuité dans les tomes, sachant que les précédents intervenants sont de plus en plus impliqués, et que sont utilisées des références aux histoires ainsi qu’aux origines expliquées au fur et à mesure (un peu comme dans le précédent tome).

On pourrait d’ailleurs se demander
When Jez discovers what she really is, she leaves her gang and the world she has always known. Things are happening around the world that cannot be ignored. The weather is changing, animals are becoming more violent, and those who belong to the Night World are growing stronger. One of the four Wild Powers is in San Francisco, and Jez must reunite with her old gang and betray them to save the Power, or the world will be destroyed.

Another great addition to the series. The relationship between thes

I read the Nightworld series for the first time when i was in high school, and it really resonated with me. As an adult, I still enjoy rereading the series frequently. This book is one of my favorites in the series.

Human-hating vampire Jez Redfern is horrified when she learns she is a human/vampire crossbreed- an abomination in the eyes of both species. She has to come to terms with what she is, and find a way to live on the fine line between two warring species, not really belonging to either.
Vera Neves (Sinfonia dos Livros)
Mais um capítulo terminado e como sempre L. J. Smith não me desapontou!

Achei imensa piada à relação amor/ódio entre Jez e Morgead.

De leitura rápida, acho que esse terá sido o livro que até agora gostei mais. Talvez por fazer-se menção a algo tão hediondo e aterrador como o Fim do Mundo, e a introdução de um novo Poder, capaz de salvar o Mundodos humanos tal como o conhecemos.

Smith, nesse livro, encaixa muito bem a relação Mundo da Noite e os humanos, criando uma personagem que sendo meio vampira
