Well I got 2/3 of the books this one never came in and I can’t figure out who to contact other than the shipping place it came through and when I package is lost it’s a joke to get anything back it’s just a sad loss. I know it’s only $5 but this happened with one other book and it was $12 money adds up.

Slow start

Slow start but an amazing read regardless. Read this series as a teen and loved it. It isn't as good as I remember but is one I will still cherish.

Helping our Children !!

The books were purchased for a 9th grade student whom wants to be a writer and is living in poverty, she has been inspired by the two Authors. Warren


I love how characters are "mentioned" in some of the other Night World stories (books actually as each was once a separate book) and then become main characters later in the Night World Series some where. My favorite L.J. Smith "book" so far (Besides The Secret Circle Series)has to be The Chosen from Night World Book 2. I hated to see it end and would love a continuation of this "book". Loved Soulmate too! I can not wait for Night World 3 to be released.

Excellent read!

I read this series when it was originally released. I still have all nine books. They have their own shelf on my bookshelf (along with The Vampire Diaries, Dark Vision, Forbidden Game etc). I bought these "anthologies" because this series is just great. I love Soulmate.

Most Beloved Book

Long before there was J.K. Rowling, there was L.J. Smith. I began reading the Night World series when I was 13 years old. I am so unbelievably thrilled that they are finally being reprinted. L.J. Smith's writing is superb and her characters are rich in quality and well developed, even their weaknesses somehow strengthen them and make them all the more likeable. This is the second Volume of the Night World series which includes three wonderful stories, Dark Angel, The Chosen, and Soulmate, The Chosen being my personal favorite. Each story is beautifully crafted with each character we meet miraculously intertwining with those we have been previously introduced. You will remember the characters long after the story has been read and you will be breathlessly waiting the next installment.

The suspense, danger, and romance continue...

In Dark Angel, Gillian is the quiet girl no one ever really notices. She's lonely, and is suffering from her parents' crumbling relationship. It's while walking home from school one winter day that she falls into an icy river, and dies. On her way to heaven, she meets Angel, her handsome guardian angel, who insists that it's not her time yet, and makes her return to earth. But instead of going to back to her meek and quiet life, Gillian is transformed into the most popular girl in school--with Angel's help. But when Angel begins to manipulate Gillian into doing things she doesn't want to do, she must question everything she thought she knew about him and herself. Rashel is strong, mentally and physically, and hardened against life's injustices, a result of witnessing her mother's murder at the hands of a vampire. Now she has devoted her life to tracking down her mother's killer, becoming the most feared vampire hunter among the Night Worlders. But when a chance encounter with the vampire Quinn, who has a reputation to match Rashel's, leaves the both of them confused--and very much alive--they discover a bond between the both of them that could be their undoing in The Chosen. In Soulmate, Hannah's life is perfect: she has a great mother, a scholarship to her college of choice, and wonderful friends...except for one thing: she is going insane. Puzzling dreams and notes she's written but has no recollection of leave her miserable and frightened. But during her therapy sessions with a small town shrink, the shocking truth comes out. Hannah has been reincarnated since the dawn of Night World, following her soulmate Thierry, Lord of the Night World and immortal vampire. But as memories of past lives resurface, Hannah finds she doesn't entirely trust Thierry, and Maya, the original vampire, would very much like to rip Hannah to shreds. Like the first volume of the Night World books, Night World Vol. 2 is a supernatural lover's dream book. Smith's stories, though they revolve around the same beings, are all very inventive and unique. Her characters are varied and all have colorful personalities, which gives the concept of the Night World such authenticity. Smith's writing also has an air of sophistication and ease that is very simple and enjoyable to read, but at the same time, deals with many complex issues. Like with the first volume, there is plenty of doomed romance and danger, but rather than coming across as cheesy, it is adventurous and polished. Also in this volume, readers get a feel for the changes that are going on in the Night World, set in motion by the original characters from Secret Vampire (Volume 1), Poppy and James, and Smith also adds some Night World history and lore in Soulmate. These little qualities that lend credibility to a comprehensive picture of the Night World are what distinguishes Smith's paranormal realm from the many others floating around in the genre, and make for a truly enjoyable reading experience. L.J. Smith
