This story certainly had lots of drama and not a lot of plot. The whole thing with an barely noticed girl going from zero to hero with the popular crowd is a storyline that's been over-played in books and movies, sot that was rather corny. It's an okay read, not something that I'd ever read again, but great if you're looking for something fast and simple and won't tax your brain.
This story was definitely the best I'd read so far in the series. Yes, it still has an unpolished feel to the writing style, but it wasn't as annoying as the earlier ones with an overly-dramatized plot. This one actually had a story that was quite good and even included some emotional depth to the characters that I hadn't really felt in the earlier stories. Overall, a good read and I'm hoping the next in the series is as interesting.
This story was pretty good. It almost feels like the author is finally growing and her writing style is becoming more polished and less sloppy. It did pull off some cliches, including a crazy vampire-queen, but for the most part, it's still a really good read.

This was a interesting story to read, however it's a story for Teens to YA. I liked it, and it kept me entertained. I am interested enough to read the next book, Night World Vol.3.
Book 2 was just as great as Book 1. Just started Book 3 and can't wait for Book 4 to be written.
I loved this book! It has some funny lines, interesting characters, and fun plots.
Dark Angel has a neat little twist at the end and you dont know wether to be mad at Gillian for being suspisious of Angel, or not to trust Angel.
The Chosen had a really good plot. Is Quinn the bad guy? Or is he undercover to? What is happening to the disapearing girls?
Soulmate: Hannah is being chased by people... People she "Remembers". You see, she has been having strange visions about these people, and she keeps waking up with notes in her hands saying "Dead before seventeen".
