This was another good instalment, but not as good as I remembered! I want more romance ♡

Co se vám vybaví, když někdo řekne jméno této autorky? L.J.Smith. Já si vzpomenu na nekonečnou řadu knih o upírech. Smutné je, že samotná Smith stojí jen za prvními díly, a zbytek už si vzal na mušku někdo úplně jiný, i když knihy stále nesou autorčino jméno.

V poslední době se její série staly nejen oblíbeným terčem nekonečného prodlužování, ale také v zorném poli zájmu televizní stanice The CW. Kromě seriálového zpracování Upířích deníků se fanoušci dočkali také Tajného kruhu. S tím se ovšem po

Title: The Possessed
Series: Dark Visions #2

Overall Rating: 4 stars

A series review will be posted on my blog tomorrow!

There's something about this series that I can't connect to as much as LJ Smith's other books. They don't seem to be as sexy or mysterious as the previous books that I've read, there's no emotive connection to the characters in this book. I kind of miss the insta love that was in Night World. I really

This was another good read in the series, but again, I didn't enjoy it quite so much the second time around.

Looking forward to reading the last book in the series.

The narrative is still going pretty strong. I was engaged despite the fast pacing and simplicity of the story. However, this installment has two things that are... eh...

1) Kaitlyn is basically cheating on Rob. Like she kisses and hugs and mind touches with Gabriel is and is way more concerned for him. I think she's only with Rob because she feels like that's the correct thing to do and Gabriel pushing her away irritates her or something. Like we can all tell she really wants to be with Gabriel b

Nicht ganz so gut wie der erste Band. Die Gruppe reist ein wenig in Amerika umher und wer sich mit den Bundestaaten dort nicht auskennt, wird viele Fragezeichen um den Kopf haben. Man erfährt mehr über die Kräfte, die die Jugendlichen haben und besonders hat mir die Vampir Sache gefallen, die Gabriel hat. Immerhin kommt das von der Autorin von Vampire Diaries.

The second book Possessed pick up where the last book ended Kaitlyn, Gabriel, Rob, Lewis and Ana are five psychic teenagers who are on the run because an institution is after them with the intention of using them for evil. Now, they set out on a journey to find the house of their dreams where finally they could be safe. But the journey brings them danger and to a discover about Gabriel that will threaten to strain their friendship. With no direction of where they are going and with danger lurkin ...more
Po Upírskych denníkoch som siahla po tejto sérii s poriadnou rezervou. Prvý diel bol zaujímavý a na počuovanie sa mi aj clekom páčil. Vyzeral inak, nádejne. A potom prišiel druhý diel.
Keby to nebolo tak krátke tak sa na to vykašlem. A okrem toho potrebujem dohnať moje resty v ročnej GR challenge. Ale inak je to "full of bullshit". Seriózne. Upírske denníky cez kopirák, len tam nie je Stefan, Damon a Elena, ale Rob, Gabriel a Kaytlin. Jaj a magické pozadie. Ale aj to je úplne bullshitoidné. Totál
The story continues with The Possessed and it just gets darker all the time. There are some really strange revelations here, like the slime trails, and the peculiar group of people in Washington who wont lift a finger to help them (although they were called there to be helped by them).

This book wasn't so good, but it was obviously one of those tie-in novels between The Beginning and The Final Battle.
More interesting and shocking

Read it in a jiffy. Need the other one like right now !

The kids are now driving away from the evil Zetes who ran the institution that wanted to create psychic-assassins-weapons-or-something-like-that. Also, they're still linked together telepathically. Kaitlyn is still in sickly sweet syrupy love with Rob. Anna and Lewis are still completely forgettable. (I had to go back and look at the book to remember their names for this review. Sad.)

The story here is with Gabriel.

Eccomi al secondo appuntamento con questa trilogia e credo che arriverò prestissimo al terzo.

Ho trovato questo secondo volume della saga decisamente superiore al primo, soprattutto a livello di emozioni.

La storia di per sé invece non mi a colpito più di tanto. Il primo volume si conclude in un momento piuttosto decisivo, con i ragazzi che pensano alla fuga e da lì riparte la storia, fornendo così un inizio piuttosto rocambolesco alla seconda parte.

La trama si suddivide in due momenti, quello del

The Possessed isn't as gripping as its predecessor. It straddles between a standalone plot and flypaper for fans of vampire lore. In between filler material of the gang driving up the west coast, Smith shines when she writes about Gabriel's inner demons and the sacrificial aspects of love. Her prose is elevated. It flits between romance, desire, danger. Of course, maybe The Possessed is Smith's first love-note to vampire fiction.

3.5. Stars*

I actually read this book in the three in one book, Dark Visions, though I marking it read here so it adds to my Goodreads Reading Challenge!

The beginning was pretty slow moving though it sped up after a few chapters in! This book was super suspenseful and kept you reading so you knew what happens next! Definitely will be picking up another one of L.J. Smith's books up!
This book was excellent.
It was a great sequel to the first one and I can not wait to read the last book in this trilogy.

The Possessed by LJ Smith is the second book in a trilogy, the Dark Visions trilogy.
I gave the first book, The Strange Power a 3/5, and gave the same to this novel.

Here is a spoiler synopsis and overview of the novel:

The gang knows something is seriously wrong with the Institute, Mr. Zetes and Joyce- so they are planning to run away and expose the evil they are discovering. Mr. Zetes essentially wants to "...turn them into psychic weapons and sell them to the highest bidder." A fight scene bet

Kaitlyn und Gabriel ist die Flucht vor Mr. Zetes vorerst gelungen. Sie fahren zurück ins Zentrum, um mit den anderen ganz aus Kalifornien zu flüchten, was ihnen nach einigen hin und her auch gelingt. Doch wo sollen sie hin?
Sie erinnern sich an Kaitlyns Traum, der immer wieder einen unbekannten Ort an der Küste zeigt. Aber wie sollen sie dahin kommen, wenn sie weder das Geld, noch sonstige Mittel haben? Und dann kommt es während der Flucht auch noch zu Komplikationen, denn Mr. Zetes scheint denno
Rating: 3.5 Stars

After being thoroughly disappointed by the first novel in L.J. Smith’s Dark Visions trilogy, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sequel to The Strange Power proved to be an engaging read. The Possessed picked up right where its predecessor left off with Kaitlyn, Anna, Rob, Gabriel, and Lewis fleeing from the Institute. This time, they were hoping to make it to the mysterious location they kept seeing in their joint dream and hoped that the people who lived in the

The Possessed is book two of L.J. Smith's Dark Visions series - as if you didn't know that already - and I'd have to say that I didn't like this book as much as the first, The Strange Power. But I feel like that's to be expected when the majority of it is just the day-to-day journey of five teens on the run.

Kaitlyn Fairchild and her four friends are gifted with psychic powers and are attempting to escape from those that wish to exploit them - off and away to fend for themselves. Their only hint

Okolo L.J.Smith kolujú po internete všelijaké informácie. Povedzme si na rovinu, jej Upírske denníky sú vo svete viac kritizované ako chválené. Práve jej pôvodná séria Dark Visions bola pre čitateľov niečím konečne novým, žiadaným a séria dokonca bodovala na amerických knižných rebríčkoch. Po prečítaní prvej časti som mal veľmi dobré pocity, a preto som sa tešil aj na tú druhú. Asi som očakával príliš, niečo nemožné.

V prvej časti nás autorka zaviedla do tajomného Zatesovho inštitútu pre študento

Druhý díl se přečetla před nedávnem, opět se vracíme k partičce dokonalých nevýrazných dětí, co se rozhodly vzít osud do vlastních rukou a přemoci někoho, kdo má prsty všude. Příběh začíná tak trochu zmateně, tak trochu zvláštně a pokračuje do fáze, kde jsem si klepala na hlavu a říkala si... Jako opravdu? Zdálo se mi to příšerně nereálné (nepočítaje psychické schopnosti, to skousnout dokážu), vyhrocené a naumělkované. Ale měla bych začít od začátku.

The possessed is the second book from Dark Visions trilogy by L. J. Smith. I liked it more than book one. It is full of suspense and it is not hallow like the first.
The book starts from the end of THE STRANGE POWERS there is no time jump. They are running from MR. Z and looking for the white house in order to seek help from them. They face a lot of struggles most important that they don't know where the white house
Kaitlyn, Rob, Gabriel, Anna, and Lewis have escaped Mr. Zetes and the institute. After they had uncovered that Mr. Z was planning on using them physic weapons they fled. They are now on the road in search of a white house that they had seen in Kait's dream, but because of their link that Gabriel had caused (from being a telepath) they shared the dream. They also meet a girl named Lydia. She seems like a normal teenager, until her last name is revealed, Zetes. When they are convinced she will not ...more
