As night falls Rashel stalks the streets.....

looking for vampire scum! After a friend and family perish at the hands of an evil vampire Rashel whips herself into killer shape and goes on a rampage as she leads a double life...hunting vampires by night and attending school during the day! All is well for Rashell, kicking vampire butt at night until she crosses paths with a magnetic vampire named Quinn. Rashell finds herself foiling the kidnapping plan and letting Quinn go free!Their paths then cross again when Rashel goes undercover at a Nightworld night club...Quinn has no idea the beautiful green eyed girl he meets at the underground club is the same lethal vampire slayer he met that night he was ambushed and then set free by. A determined Rashell wants to be let into a nightworld slave trade and will use all her wiles to get Quinn to let her into the slave trade. This book has an exsplosive ending! Astonishing secrets are revealed to both Quinn and Rashel. L.J. Smith is my top author and I also suggest Christopher Pike.

The best in the series!

This is my all time favourite L.J. Smith book although it is closely followed by Huntress. I loved Rashel's strong character and Quinn was to die for as the vampire guy with no heart. I felt that this was the best written book and the characters were a lot more realistic than in some previous ones. Also nice touch with the flashbacks into their pasts to give them more depth and background.Rashel kicks butt in her role as the breathtakingly beautiful and devastatingly dangerous slayer of vampires. Ever since she was a kid, Rashel has been picking off evil Night World people and she has never been beaten or caught. Determined to find the vampire who killed her mother, a chance encounter with the deadly vmpire Quinn will change her life.When she gives him a chance to escape, Quinn realises that this beautiful girl is far from what she seems. Later, they meet again and once again, Rashel is faced with either killing him or letting him escape and possibly ruining her disguise. She lets him go and soon after, he too his faced with the same choice.Fantastic! Deserves 10 stars! Couple of questions though. Why is it that the humans never seem to want to become vampires? It's not that bad really, from the book description and would solve problems like dying. The best book though!


This book seemed different and almost better then the other Night World book. It starts off ( if you don't count the kid part.) with Rashel the vampire hunter killing vampires. You are made to feel like she does- that vampires are just something to get rid of. But at the end of the book you are thinking totally differently. This book also seemed to explain the 'soulmate' principle the best, how Rashel and Quinn really fitted together- maybe because Rashel is such a strong character you can tell she isn't just being romantic when she and Quinn touch. Derserves six stars!

I came with her at the beginning

The story begins with Rachel's childhood. It caught me bcause of how well I remember my childhood. I used to love those climbing things she was on and I could definetly relate to having to make sure her friend was always tagging along. From the first chapter where it describes her past, I can definetly see how she got stronger and braver. You can tell Smith does allot of research in this book. Rachel actually seems to understand those martial arts. She's definetly not anything like me, but her character fits into the story perfectly and its definetly one of the better books in the series.

I really liked this book...

I thought this was one of, if not the best, of LJ Smith's books. I liked the irony in having a vampire, who OTHER vampires think of as cold and ruthless, falling in love with a feared vampire hunter who hates vampires with a passion because of a incident in her past. I just have one question though......Quinn is a 400 yr. old vampire and immortal.......Rashel is human and refuses to become a vampire. There is also no hint that she is an Old Soul like Hannah ( in Soulmate). So what will Quinn do when Rashel grows old and dies why he remains forever at 18? What will the other immortal halves of the soulmates do? The lamia can grow old but "made" vampires can't. So does anybody have a opinion on this? Its one of the only major flaws that i see in the series. Other than that i love the series and can't wait till Strange Fate comes out! - Kaelar
