Review of Daughters of Darkness by L.J. Smith
There's something strange about the new girls in town. Briar Creek, Oregon, has never seen anything like the supernatural grace of Rowan, Kestrel, and Jade, three sisters who move into the dilapidated old house next to Mark and Mary-Lynnette Carter. Mark is obsessed with Jade -- but she and her sisters have a secret. And when Mark and Mary-Lynnette follow them into the woods one night, they are plunged into a nightmare beyond their imagination. Because the sisters are fugitives from the Night World, and their brother Ash is hot on the trail behind them. He's ruthless, gorgeous, and he has orders to bring the girls back at all costs. And when he sees Mary-Lynette, he decides to take her too. . . .
Daughters of Darkness is the 2nd story told in the Night World Volume 1 Collection. It furthers the story told in book one, although only 1 character remains in both of them. I didn't like it as much as The Secret Vampire but I enjoy any L.J. Smith fiction-she's wonderful.
Ash was is a very complex, interesting character. It's nice to see his conficts with humans and how he evolves throughout the story.
In Conclusion: I am enjoying The Night World series, the next book- Spellbinder- doesn't have any vamps in it ( :( ) Yeah, I know sad, right? although this series is not as wonderful as the Vampire Diaries, it is a wonderful vamp series and you get 3 books for the price of one-so pick it up!
