These stories were awesome, the imagery was stunning, the only thing wrong with it was how short they were. ( )

This book has the first three novels for the "Night World" Series written by L.J. Smith who also wrote "The Vampire Diaries".

Book #1 Secret Vampire: I think was my favorite of the first 3 books. I really admired the character, Poppy. Poppy's world turns upside down and she has to deal with some tragic situations.

Book #2 Daughters of Darkness: The character Mary-Lynnette is awesome. She is like Nancy Drew with attitude. I actually started liking the character of Ash in this novel. I like where he learns to accept things that are out of his control.

Book #3 Spellbinder: Witches and Vampires oh my!!Imagine two teenager witches in Las Vegas fighting for the affection of one guy. ( )

It is a clean read for young tweens/teenagers which is refreshing. ( )

I liked the length of the stories in this book. Smith kept it to the point, without any useless information crammed in there.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!!

This book (or these three books, rather) annoyed me. Everyone kept falling in love and finding soulmates, and it seemed really set-up to me, but the glimmerings of an explanation near the end of Spellbinder made me a little happier. I just hope this explanation is developed more, instead of left by the side of the road to rot.

I was also told that the series was really complex, and so far it hasn't been. It's been easy enough to connect the three books, and I really like Ash. In the second book I like him. He and Mary-L made me laugh, especially when you compare them to James and Poppy.

Is it just me, or does this series really remind anyone of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' books? Ash is so similar to Aubrey it kills me. I didn't quite feel satisfied with the endings... I felt like the story wasn't complete enough, or strong enough, or maybe not convincing enough to really reach a definite conclusion. Maybe reading the next volume will heal the dissatisfying gap left in me by this book. ( )
