Review

Reader Chart - Position 5 - 'Definitely written for the teenage reader, but these are brilliant books that I would especially recommend to those who enjoy Stephanie Meyer.' -- Waterstone's Books Quarterly 20091001 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author


L.J. Smith
is the bestselling author of more than twenty-five books for teens. She is a former teacher and lives in California.

More About the Author

Lisa Jane Smith is the New York Times #1 Bestselling author of The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, The Forbidden Game, Dark Visions, Wildworld and Night World series. She has written over two dozen books for children and young adults, and has enjoyed writing every one of them. She lives in the Bay Area of California, with a backyard that is full of flowers, which she adores, especially with many different shades of roses.

She loves to visit a friend's little cabin in the Point Reyes National Seashore area, which has lots of trees, lots of animals, lots of beaches to walk on, and lots of places to hike. Once, while hiking, she saw a snow-white buck which allowed her to follow it nearly half a mile. She also likes to collect things: angels (they remind her of her late mother), tiny boxes from different countries or of fanciful shape, nineteenth century children's literature, and books about quantum physics--especially about the mystery of the dark energy in the universe. A militant optimist, she is also part of the Velociraptor Sisterhood (a fancy way of saying that she likes to read, write and discuss books with strong female characters), and she has traveled extensively in Europe and the Far East. The two countries she loves to visit most are Great Britain, with its historic monuments and amazing country landscapes, and Japan, with its bustling urban life and exquisite mountain scenery.

Her favorite current writer is Terry Pratchett, the author of the Discworld series, for its wild and witty satires on life, death, war, love, assassins, coppers, and Australia. Her favorite classical writer is Jane Austen. Her favorite poets are Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson. Her favorite movies are The Seven Samurai and Avatar (analyze that!). She doesn't have a favorite TV show, because she doesn't have time to watch TV (and only owns one for playing movies).

Her favorite people are her readers, each of whom she cherishes with deep and lasting affection.

Format: Paperback
First published between 1996 and 1998, Lisa Jane Smith's "Night World" series was designed as a ten-book series, best put in the "supernatural teenage romance" genre. It deals with the existence of a secret society of witches, vampires and shape-shifters who live incognito amongst humans. Although the superior numbers of humans mean that they hold dominion over the world, the supernatural inhabitants of the Night World consider them inferior and look forward to the opportunity to reclaim power over the world. Only two rules are in place for the treatment of the human race: to never tell them about the Night World, and to never fall in love with one of them. Naturally, every story was based around these rules getting broken.

The reader was gradually introduced to the Night World and its inhabitants as the books went on. Whereas the first omnibus set up the basic concept for the Night World and the rules in place for its existence, the second began to give the sense that all the stories were interconnected rather than one-off stories. With each installment, more was learnt about the history of the sub-world, the concept of soulmates, and (particularly in this final omnibus) the coming of the end of the world. Such was the case for the first nine books in this series, but unfortunately, the final book in the series was never published, leaving readers hanging as to how the story ended.

But for fans who have waited ten years to get the end of the story, Simon and Schuster now are republishing the series in three-book omnibuses in anticipation for "Strange Fate." Like many, I was a teenager when I began reading these books, and it was a sense of nostalgia that brought me back to these reissues.

I was leary of LJ Smith at first because she gears her books so much towards teens, but the more I read the more I am hooked. This one was no different. The only thing I can really complain much about is that she isn't finished. Smith totally leaves you wanting more, but there is none. According to her website she is finally writing the ending to all the nightworld stuff, but what am I supposed to do in the meantime? I am dying to know what is going to happen. I just hope that when she ties everything together and brings it all to a close, we are not left wanting anymore and that it will be an ending worthy of being associated with the rest of the books.

Either way I have definitely becom an LJ Smith fan and even with the series unfinished I strongly recommend it to anyone.

Format: Paperback
These three books are some of my favorites in the Nightworld series. I first fell in love with the Nightworld when I was around 10, with Daughters of Darkness. Now I'm 25, and I can honestly say these books feel like dear old friends whenever I open them up.

LJ Smith makes it a joy to become her characters. I found it easy to seamlessly relate to Jez Redfern's double life, her ferocity, and how she strives to redeem herself for her earlier life. Maggie's strength and compassion won me over immediately--as well as her dogged determination to do what was right. Keller has always been one of my favorite characters because she's a fighter in spite of past trauma.

Smith writes memorable, strong female characters. For this, I will venture to draw the contrast between the excellent portrayal of her female protagonists with Stephenie Meyer's subservient and vain characters, who at best (Alice) manage to be three-dimensional and independent, but at worst (Rosalie) are shown to be completely one-sided and self-obsessed. Bella is somewhere in between, with a side of being perpetually incomplete without a man present. Smith's characters not only thrive on their own, but they are intelligent and resourceful role models that I still draw on even as an adult. As a young girl, reading the stories of the Nightworld were inspiring to me--they are capable, self-sufficient, and independent. Smith showed me that women can be fighters, protectors, and heroes in their own right.

In Huntress, we are taken on the journey of a reformed half-vampire, Jez Redfern, who discovered that as the leader of her old gang, she was murdering her own people.

Format: Paperback
I think I now understand better why so many L.J. Smith's fans crave the last, 10th, installment of the Night World series - Strange Fate - to be finally published. Throughout this series of paranormal romances Smith has created a fascinating supernatural world and gradually built up to a great end-of-the-world showdown destined to happen in the final chapter of the story.

This collection of 3 romances is of the same quality as two previous Night World tomes. What you have here are these scenarios: i-didn't-realize-i-was-in-love-with-my-long-time-guy-friend ("Huntress"); my-soulmate-is-a-vampire-dark-prince-but-my-love-will-cure-his-badness ("Black Dawn"); omg-my-soulmate-has-to-marry-someone-else-for-political-reasons ("Witchlight").

Yes, I know how it sounds, but believe it or not, these books are solid stories with strong heroines whose priorities are straight, who are not TSTL and whose lives do not revolve around their boys. The books remain simple and innocent (no action beyond first base here), maybe a little juvenile. But at the same time the plots are great and the mythology is imaginative. Night World books are basically better than 95% of paranormal YA fiction I've read these past few years.

I am now going to wait for Strange Fate too, but seeing that L.J. Smith has lost some marbles over the years and produced new Vampire Diaries of atrocious quality, maybe I shouldn't.
