Cost: Free gift
Title: The Passion
Series: Dark Visions #3
Author: LJ Smith
Overall Rating: 4 stars
Basically, what I've concluded is that, although I've enjoyed reading this trilogy, it's not my favourite LJ Smith work.
I really liked how much we got to see Gabriel in this book, he is by far my favourite character in this book, and I think the third book was definitely worth waiting for. I felt more connected to the characters in this one, I was so i ...more
Dark Visions is my second experience with LJ Smith. I started with The Vampire Diaries series, which was a somewhat of a letdown for me as a big fan of the show. I was iffy on starting another LJS book, but I'm glad I did. Dark Visions turned out to be just pure fun!
This is by no means a perfect series. Compared to nowadays YA books, I have to say that Dark Visions could come off as somewhat unoriginal. I mean, you've heard it before- loner girl with dead parent and magic ...more
Katie se tentokrát trochu projevila, konečně udělala něco pro Gabriela a vrhla se po hlavě do nejtěžšího úkolu, který ji za tu dobu asi čeká. Přestala se spolé ...more
I didn't dislike it as you can see -> 3 full stars!
And I pretty much enjoyed the ride, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten to the end of this series. BUT STILL... Something was missing, I didn't fall for the characters. Mostly the main one. Kate.
Need to get back on this review, I'll have more time to straighten my thoughts and put them down in words.
Full review to come.
Cover: 3/5 - Not a huge fan of the photography or artwork
The Passion is the last book in the Dark Visions trilogy by L.J Smith. The book starts off with Gabriel now being a part of Mr. Zete's side, wanting power and control. Over the course of the novel, the reader gets to experience newfound feelings characters have for each other.
I thought this book went by fast meaning something new and interesting was happening every time I turned the page. The plot was amazing and the overall ch
This book deserves a tv show and I sort of imagined it as a tv show in my head. It's both dramatic and cheesy. It reminded me of the ending of an R.L. Stine book (and his books were turned into a tv show!)
So much eye-rolls for this to be honest. The whole execution in the plot kept building up into something more- something I wouldn't have expected. Kinda like the ending of Shatter Me. Crazy, ...more
I liked the basic idea and the plot of Dark Visions. In my opinion, this is a great series ruined by very unlikable characters. I hated Kait and Rob with a passion. I never saw anything in their relationship. There was no feeling in it, and it felt forced. I think Gabriel could have been better if we could have had more from his perspective. ...more
The entire series deserves a 4.9-star average rating. The story centers on five kids ...more
Gabriel left the four others, Anna, Rob, Lewis, and Kaitlyn, to work with Mr. Zetes. He is determined to get a shard of the crystal they have nobody the cost and demonstrates to them that he means business. Kaitlyn realizes that she has to do something about Gabriel and decides to sneak off and pretend to join the Institute because the crystal needs to be destroyed. When Gabriel finds Kaitlyn, she tells him she came ...more
Here is a spoiler play by play of what happened in this novel:
The novel starts off with Gabriel having changed sides. He is now on a quest to be evil and powerful, and is hunting Kait, Rob, Anna and Lewis (the gang) to get the crystal. In his mind, he is pure evil. He’s against them all and shows no mercy. He is working for Mr. Zete’s and is back at the institute. Lydia also ran away with him to be back under the co ...more
Jenže to nebude tak jednoduché. Gabriel od nich odešel k panu Z., aby se mu dostalo úcty, kterou si zaslouží (jeho vlastní slova) a teď je pronásleduje ve snaze získat krystal a zabránit jim ve zničení toho druhého. Jednoduché, říkáte si. ...more
Příběh pokračuje tam, kde skončil v předchozím díle, kdy se Gabriel přidal na druhou stranu. Ostatní členové skupinky se schovali u rodiny bývalé zaměstnankyně Institutu, aby je pan Zetes nevystopoval. Tady jsem se trochu bála, že jakmile budou naši hrdinové objeveni, opět začnou utíkat ...more
I've finished my first paranormal fiction and I think I liked and I'll read more of paranormal fiction.
In this book Kaitlyn went after Gabriel back to the institute 'cause Rob said if he had to kill him to destroy Mr. Z and the crystal, so she went to destroy the crystal without killing Gabriel. Gabriel in this book turned oh, so bad kinda guy, but still I knew that he was good underneath and it was true, he was goo ...more

Gabriel finall seemed able to break their locked stare. He looked away, at the carpet. His face was bleak.
Yes' he said
More than anything,' Rob persisted. 'You'd crawl on your belly over broken glass for her. Easy.'
Yes, damn you,' Gabriel said. 'Happy now?”
