Review: Night World 3
Title: Night World Bk 3: Huntress, Black Dawn, and Witchlight
Author: L.J. Smith
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Date published: April 2009 (first published 1997,98)
Type of book: Young Adult (Supernatural, Vampires, Witches, Shapeshifters, Soulmates, Apocalypse)
I received this book from/at: Barnes and Noble
My interest in this book is: plot, author, Night World 3
Ideas expressed/message/plot: From back cover: “Vampires, werewolves, witches, and shapeshifters – they live among us without our knowledge. Night World is their secret society, a secret society with very strict rules. And falling in love breaks all the laws of Night World.
The apocalypse is drawing near. But four Wild Powers can save the world from the impending doom. Circle Daybreak, an underground with both Night World and human members, is searching for the four who can stop the darkness.
A vampire hunter – who is half vampire – stalks her own kind to protect humans in Huntress.
In Black Dawn, Maggie stumbles upon an old Night World kingdom where the ruling vampire prince is both an enemy and an ally.
And Circle Daybreak hires Keller, a shapeshifting panther, to guard a new Wild Power in Witchlight. But when Keller falls in love with the Wild Power’s soulmate, her love could destroy everything.”
Favorite characters, quotes/lines: Jez and Morgead, Maggie and Delos, Keller and Galen: all of their stories were addicting – each couple is so perfectly suited to one another
When I finished this book I felt: I can’t wait to read the conclusion: Strange Fate. At the same time, I don’t want it to end. L.J. Smith is one of my all time favorite authors. Her stories have the perfect balance of supernatural, romance, and action.
Other books to read by this author: Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, Night World 1 and 2, Strange Fate
I would recommend this book to: young adult readers who like supernatural elements incorporated and a good love story
