really liked it
bookshelves: horror, romance, young-adult
Read in June, 2008

So far, Night World is my favorite L.J. Smith series, because it is the most cracktastic. It is full of the kinds of stuff your sixteen-year-old id comes up with and incorporates into your private vast crossover-ridden original fiction playground. (Everybody mashes up all their favorite characters and tropes into a personal fantasy playground when they're sixteen, right? Right? Guys?) It has a secret history of the world, in which there is a Night World of witches, vampires, and shapeshifters, who are now trying to bring on the apocalypse, opposed only by an idealistic group of humans, witches, vampires, and shapeshifters with a nifty cool name (Circle Daybreak), and also there are soulmate bonds, reincarnation, and, lately, dragons. Sadly I am not as keen on soulmate bonds now as I was when I was sixteen, but L.J. Smith still is. Also, she is far too fond of vampires (boring!) and not fond enough of dragons (BEST THING EVER!), but no one is perfect.

Full review.
