Daughters of Darkness go inside Books I just reread this book, and I remember now why I liked these so much in high school. These books have everything right about them that is wrong with Twilight. For one, it's over three quarters shorter. But that's just for starters.Briar Creek is just about the quietest town imagineable, so when Mrs. Burdock's nieces, Rowan, Kestrel and Jade Redfern, move in next door, Mary-Lynnette and her brother Mark are obviously intrigued. They have good reason to be. The Redfern sisters aren't just beautiful, they're strange. Different. The Redfern sisters also happen to be vampires on the run, being stalked by their older brother, Ash.The reason these books are so much better than Twilight is partially because of the women. Mary-Lynnette has personality. She has character, and not just because the author wasnts us to know that she's interesting. Mary-Lynnette has interests.Much like Edward and Bella, Mary-Lynnette has an instant connection that she doesn't understand with a vampire--Ash--and also like Edward and Bella, Mary-Lynnette and Ash both at first try to keep apart from each other. But unlike Edward and Bella, we know their reasons, and they actually make sense. We see them change their minds about each other, and we understand why. We see them grow together over the course of this short book, and it makes sense.Ash is hot, of course, but Mary-Lynnette sees right through that. She's too prickly for that. She wasn't impressed by good looks unless they were the thin, brown, and interesting kind...Gorgeous guys--guys who looked like big ash-blond cats--didn't have any reason to develop their minds. They were self-absorbed and vain. With IQs barely high enough to keep a seat warm.Mary-Lynnette never falls for Ash because he's a hottie. She is eventually won over by him because of his character, because of parts of who he is--who he really is--that show themselves to her.And, not to mention, this short little book has a lovely bit of female friendship, between Mary-Lynnette and Rowan. Not to mention the sisterly bond between the three different, but strong and interesting each in their own way sisters.This book isn't deep by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a fun fast read. It's what Twilight wishes it could be. I suppose a hundred thousand teenage girls can't be wrong, but I wish I could put the books in this series in their hands instead. They're just so much better on every level..

  2. Jade said ungratefully, squirming I may have to fight She wriggled out of his arms and faced the bushes again Stay behind me Okay, so she is crazy I don t care I think I love her.


  3. 2.5 stars I liked Mary Lynette s feistiness, and the way she didn t take any crap from Ash or anyone else The romance was absolutely appalling I was literally gagging at points because it was so nauseating I ve read the cannot help but falling in love on first sight because we re soulmates with a paranormal connection we cannot deny trope before, and done well, it can work really well like in Rachel Hawthorne s Dark Guardian series But every single romantic connection in this book was blamed on [...]


  4. What I like about this book, is the fact that Mary Lynnette, actually has a choice, she could ve made everything perfect and easy for Ash and stay with him, next to him, for eternity, but she decides she can not do with that kind of live Ash was such a jerk on Secret Vampire , and I honestly hated him then, but this is a new story, and he shows his true persona I honestly loved him here Mary is strong, and not so delicate L J Smith has this thing going on which is amazing , and all of her leadin [...]




  5. As an adult reader I gave this a 2 star because some things were not very logical The story was well written and as a teen I think I would have given it a 4 maybe even a 5 I would not mind letting my children read this book as the love relationships are based on emotions rather than physical appearance The relationship between the characters are healthy, for example they do not have the male stalking the female or the female saying she is going to die without the male Yes that is a comparison to [...]

  9. 4 Stars The mystery element of the book is pretty interesting The three sisters are intriguing, and Ash, who was introduced in the first book, does a turnabout and becomes a guy any girl would want to marry.Among some of my favorites Outstanding literary work The characters are well developed, interesting The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting It has a fairly original or uniquely w [...]


  10. After reading the first book in the Night World series I didn t really know what to expect from the second one, but I was happy when it turned out to be about vampires as well.Reading this book, I was surprised to see a character from the first book in it now acting as a main character This is something that I find to be very creative of the author Especially taking into consideration what an impact the events in this book have on that character s attitude and life A character who is troublesome [...]


  11. This was probably my favorite of the Night World series I just really liked that Ash HATED humans, but then much to his horror, he found his soul mate in A HUMAN, and I just loved how he couldn t fight that no matter how much he may have wanted to And for a refreshing change, I liked that they didn t just walk away into the sunset at the end These aren t the most spectacular, blow you away stories, and it s been a few years since I ve read this one I just know the way it made me feel when readin [...]


  12. Source I own a bind up of books 1, 2 and 3 in this series Cost Free gift Title Daughters of Darkness Series Night World 2 Author LJ Smith Overall Rating 4 starsThis one is my favourite for sure, I loved the family element of it I really love how the sisters stuck together throughout this one, and I want to know about Ash I really did like how this was an almost separate story from the previous one but set within the same world.

  14. Okay, I m definitely getting into this series This book was much better than the first Not that the first one wasn t fun but this story was developed, and the characters had a lot depth I still think the story moves super fast, which makes some of what happens not make too much sense However, I believe that is partly due to the nature of the genre, and the expectations of an author writing in said genre to get to the juicy bits quickly All that said, this was a fast read, and very entertaining [...]


  15. This is by far my favorite Night World book The plot isn t really anything great, but all of the characters from Ash s sisters to Mary Lynnette and Ash himself, definitely make up for it Despite the lack of interactions and scenes between these two, Mary Lynnette and Ash are my favorite soulmate couple.


  16. Awesome I loved this book So much intrigue So many twists and turns This book is the ultimate plot twist LOL I never knew what was coming next and so many times I thought we were on one path and suddenly things turned It was great It kept me guessing D


  17. Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange The StoryRowan, Kestrel, and Jade know that they are taking a path of no return when they flee their home The three sisters are well aware of all the risks and sacrifices involved, but anything in the human world is better than to live in an eternal bubble without any real living.What they didn t expect was to have a nosy neighbor.Mary Lynnette is a loner, a creature of the night The stars are her best friends, along with her [...]


  18. MORE MORE P.S I love that book EXPECTATIONS First of all these covers are so terrible, just look at it If I saw this in the shop there is no way I would buy it Fortunately I have three bind ups of this series and each contains three books so I don t have to suffer looking at original covers, the bind ups are black and kinda decent looking THE WORLD Alright so as the series title indicates it is all about the Night World Which really is just a world of paranormal existing next to our usual world [...]

  20. After reading the secret vampire I went straight into this because I really enjoyed smiths writing The plot for this thankfully was a little different to the normal paranormal it was much mysterious and I loved it Three supernaturals come to a deadbeat town in the country and well bring a whole load of drama to it to Jade seemed very innocent, bubbly and naive but I think that was very much part of her charm, especially for Mark.Kestrel seemed wild and fiery so like an animal it was hard to rea [...]
