Night World: Dark Angel (Night World #4)
The series takes place in a world similar to our own but one where vampires, witches, werewolves and shape-shifters live among humans without their knowledge. These supernatural races make up a secret society known as the Night World, which enforces two fundamental laws to prevent discovery: 1) Never allow humans to gain knowledge of the Night World's existence and, 2) Nev...more
Στα βιβλία της L.J Smith,κρύβεται πάντα μια δυναμική ηρωίδα,που,τις περισσότερες φορές,κάθε άλλο παρά δυναμική παρουσιάζεται στην αρχή. Η ίδια η L.J Smith έχει δηλώσει ότι προσπαθεί να δημιουρ ...more
Great story but the romance or lack of, disappointed me. Then I was a bit freaked out that Gillain cousin tries to convince her that he is her soul mates. Ewww!!!
Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It has a fairly original or uniquely well-developed plot. The pret ...more
At first "Dark Angel" doesn't seem like a typical Night World book. Gillian Lennox is a normal teenager; someone that many teen girls could probably relate too. She's not one of the popular crowd but instead is a shy outcast. Her two goals in life are somewhat superficial: she wants to be popular, and she wants David Blackburn to love her. But then who wasn't superficial when they were a teen?
Gillian's introduction to the Night World comes when she has ...more
Not quite done with this one yet but I've realized that this is the one Night World book I haven't read yet. All of the others I've read at least once.
6/20/2012 Part A - So far my one major problem with this installment is that it's not until half way through the book that the Night World is mentioned. Since this is a Night World book I have an issue with that. Not much happens in this first half either. It's mostly Gillian, with her guardian angel, Angel, changing her image and becomi ...more
Oh one thing good was a little cameo by Ash!! Our heart-stopper Ah! *sighs* He is reformed here but would have loved more of him too.. :D
The first half of the book was just about Gillian and her angel and her change from timid invisible girl to the popular girl. It was little irritating as n ...more
The Night World is the world with every dark creature you can imagine. Every "fictional" creature you know came from somewhere: The Night World.
Now, something weird, even for the Night World, is happening. Soulmates are appearing again. Two beings so connected, they are just meant to be. Every story of this series meant to culminate with the end of the world as we know focuses on different characters and how all these end up meeting.
Amazing narrative. Interesting c ...more
Déjà le quatrième tome de la série Night World. Après trois tomes, je savais à quoi m'attendre de cette série. Je ne suis pas fan à 100%, mais c'est léger et facile à lire. Le style de L. J. Smith n'est pas celui qui me convient le mieux, mais j'y trouve mon compte quand même. Et c'est le cas pour ce tome encore une fois.
Un jour, en rentrant du lycée, Gillian entend des cris qui proviennent de la forêt. Sans trop réfléchir, elle se lance à l ...more

J’ai vraiment beaucoup aimé ma lecture. Elle est sans prise de tête et a un bon rythme. Le seul bémol c’est qu’on finit le livre assez vite, il n’est pourtant pas petit mais le style est simple, parfois même enfantin, ce qui rend la lecture fluide et rapide.
Tout d’abord l’histoire et l’intrigue. J’ai trouvé pour ma part que l’intrigue ne s’essouffle pas, on a le droit à plusieurs rebondissements auxquels je ne m’attendais pas. Je dois dire que certaines ré ...more
Dark Angel was somewhat different than the previous three stories in the series since it doesn’t just introduce two characters and say that they’re soul mates. Throughout a great part of the story I wondered who exactly a character named ‘Angel’ was. The previous stories never had such a character who would speak inside the mind of the protagonist.
One day, while walking home from school, Gillian hears a child crying near the creek. Sh ...more
We all know that when it comes to Vampires, Witches, Werewolves and stuffs like that, L.J. Smith is one of the best writers. We can't deny that. Even I was hooked with her famous series, The Vampire Diaries. And in the N ...more

Ok let's do a rundown of heavy-shit-in-the-Night-World books:
Secret Vampire: Swift and terminal cancer in a teenager, the sudden loss of all she knows due to becoming a made vampire. Previous loss of parent (alive but abandoned them more or less).
Daughters of Darkness: Attempted rape. Animal cruelty on more than one occasion. Dead parents (the Redferns have lost both parents, the Carters have lost ...more

But there are some surprisingly effective moments here considering I never knew this author existed until the CW series The Vampire Diaries. It's actually too bad, because her books, rather than being fluffy (though to be sure they are formulaic) I'd put on a par with Christopher Pike who wrote some truly dark *%.) I lov ...more
I mostly related to the main character, Gillian, and how she had always been very shy and sort of an outcast. I never got to have the chance she did though, of becoming more popular instantly and gaining the attentions of my crush. Of course all of this is at a pri ...more
