Night World

Book 1, Night World

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The first book in L.J. Smith’s beloved Night World series is now available as a special collector’s edition!

The pain was something Poppy couldn’t ignore. The diagnosis was death. There was no hope—until James appeared in the darkened hospital room.

James, her best friend and secret love, the most handsome boy in El Camino High. But this was a James she didn’t know, menacing yet irresistible as he offered Poppy the gift of eternal life.

Only he could open the door to the Night World, and spirit her into its lonely, secret universe.

One dizzying kiss and she can see into his soul. She finds that he has always loved her. They’re soul mates—but can she follow him into death and beyond? It’s a desperate choice, and Poppy’s time is running out...

Love Night World Series!

I read this series in my teen years and loved it! I still read all of the books in this series to this day! Great book for pre-teens/teens! Only downside is the author never finished the series. That reason alone is why I didn't give it 5 stars.

As amazing now as it was in 1996

Its been roughly 20 years since I first discovered L. J. Smith and her Night World series. (Did I just age myself???) Unlike another favorite series from those days, which I re-read in recent years and then questioned my middle grade taste in books, this series is still as amazing as the day I read it.

Smith doesn't waste time with describing every little nuance that her readers honestly aren't going to care about, but within 2 pages I had a solid sense of who the heroine, Poppy, was as a person and how she felt about James, the hero of our story.

I was always a huge fan of the whole Soulmate trope and this series executes it perfectly. For me, there needs to be some kind of supernatural reason for Soulmates to exist, and in a world of vampires, witches, and shifters, it’s very easy to buy into that reasoning. Add in forbidden love and what teen girl could resist! Certainly not this one, even now that I've said goodbye to my teen years ages ago.

This is a short read, but it is utterly satisfying. There's the star-crossed lovers, the villain, and vampires and witches galore! I seriously can’t wait to dive into the rest of these books. Who knows, maybe by the time I re-read the last of them, there will finally be a new release date set for the final book in the series. It's only 17 years past due.

So should you read this one? YES. This was the book for the generation before Twilight. (And the author also created The Vampire Diaries - though the TV series took great liberties with the story. For the better IMO. But that's a whole other book review!) So, what are you waiting for? Go sink your fangs into this amazing series!
