It wasn't that nightworld was bad. The writing flowed nicely, was descriptive and the world was well-realized. The characters were mostly interesting and different and all three stories stood well on their own as well as adding to each other.
That's not to say, though, that I didn't have issues with this bo ...more
my favorite was most deffinatly secerate vampire one thing i love about thease books is they dont have actual romance untill the end when everything is sorted out
This is a three-in-one compilation book, of which I seem to own most of L.J. Smith’s series’ in, and as such I will once again be attempting to review them in their singular parts rather than a cohesive whole. I am downgrading this particular volume to a three as when I joined GRs I just sort of slapped a bunch of ratings in here and left it as that. Though I like this series, this particular volume is not a favourite.
This series is all about SOLE MATES!!!

At first glance, this book appeared daunting because of its sheer length, 729 pages, and the fact that it's comprised of three novels in one. Once I started reading "Secret Vampire," I discovered that this was going to be a quick and rather boring read. It was similar to Twilight, although it should be noted that the original printing predated Meyer's series. The characters were flat and undeveloped making it difficult to relate to them. The plots of each story were rushed and ...more

These are reprints and were highly recommended in an issue of Booklist. There are Werewolves, vampires, and witches that all live in the secret society of the Night World. Humans are not just the enemy, but are considered vermin. Each book seems to pick up a different story line about the world. It was odd, but I think Stephanie Meyer has to have re ...more
The first section/book was alright. Although the relationship between Poppy and James wasn’t anything I haven’t read before, it was still cute. The events seemed predictable and the story line went by in a flash. I felt like there wasn’t even a climax in there. Daughters of Darkness was better and my favorite. Particularly because of Ash. He made it bearable. I re ...more
You have three stories which are tied together loosely. Each story has basically the same and the plot line, which is the point, but then they are never expounded upon. You would need less than ten pages, per story line, to tell each of the three stories that were told...the rest was ridiculous and repetitive to the point of being ludicrous. I am sorry that I always finish what I begin to read in this instance...but I stopped right t ...more

The other books were better - MaryLynn was awesome, and while I thought the ending was a little rushed, I appreciated the characters a lot more.
The third book was the most balanced in terms of story, and charact ...more
