I just finished reading the the Night World series and the other Night World related stories on this site and I loved it all! I refused to put the books down, I only stopped when my vision was so blurry from reading that I had to sleep. I'm a long time VD fan and since I wont be reading those written by the ghost writer, I knew I should try some of L.J.'s other series, and I'm sooooo glad I did! It was great exploring all the Night World characters and their adventures, I loved all of them so much. I don't know which is my favorite.(my favorite was which ever one I was reading at the moment) I strongly suggest that any of L.J's VD fans read her other series' and Night World was amazing, trust me you'll love it! Im gladly and patiently awaiting Strange Fate.

It's amazing isn't it!
Night World is totally my favourite LJ Smith series and one of my favourite series (what is the plural of series?) of all time! I think I said this in an ealier guestbook . . . oh well.
The characters are really life like and I think that it's easy to imagine them as real people. They don't weaken as the books go along - with some other books you lose a sense of what the character is like. But it's not like that in Night World! I love all the strong female characters like Rashel, Keller, Hannah, Mary-Lynnette, Jez . . . etc.
And it's also thanks to LJ Smith that I got into astronomy, which I'm now doing a GCSE in! lol xx :-)

It really is! I loved it. I wasnt sure I would like it more than the Vampire Diaries but I really did, all the stories were so great. Haha I was thinking the same thing when I was writing, idk if there is a plural of series, I just put one of those little ' itali things after the s lol. Maybe M.L. & Ash's story has that effect on people because after I read it I wanted to look at the stars every night from my own Oregon back yard :) Yeah those are some of my favorite characters to Rashel & Quinn and Keller & Galen, & Jez, and Poppy & James. And I really love Thea to! & Eric. And I like Rowan to, I hope maybe L.J. will put a little something about Ash's sisters and M.L.'s brother in Strange Fate.

Hi,
I just want to say that I totally agree with everything all of you are saying about The Night World. It is definitely my favorite series. I very rarely reread books. However, I have either already or plan to reread all of Lisa’s books. It is sort of funny that I recently bought a new book (from a different author), but I just can’t stop rereading The Night World to actually start the new book (lol). Lisa’s books just get better every time I read them. Keller and Galen are my favorite soulmates, but I love all the couples in the poll, too. The characters are so well developed that I feel like I know them and how they would react in different situations. Lisa is an amazingly talented author.

I love night world! I think it was actually the first lj smith book i read! , or was it secret circle....? Anyway my favourite couples are:

Rashel and Quinn! :D
Jez and Morghead :lol:
Mary-lynette and Ash :-)

I just love all the couples that both people have got strong personalities and they go well together.

GO THE NIGHT WORLD!

I agree with everything above!
Night World was the first LJ Smith book I read . . . It was on holiday in Ireland two years ago.
It's great that these books have such a positive impact on people's lives. Now I can totally tell my parents that young adult literature is just as good as 'the classics' :lol:
And, yes, you can do Astronomy as a GCSE. I dropped French to take it (thank heavens!)

I absolutely love the Night World series (& series is already a plural btw) I never usually re-read books without skipping chapters and/or getting bored but with Lisa's books, I can reread them again and again without skiping chapters or getting bored. The charaters are so realistic that if they jumped out of the pages I wouldn't be too surprised! (Lisa can make anything magical happen with her books) I am, too, patiently awaiting strange fate whilst I'm waiting I'm rereading her other books. It's kinda funny how my history teacher bought frankenstein for me for doing such a good review and I keep putting it down to go back to the Night World & VD. I'm currently awaiting the arrival of 'half the library' (my dads view on the 10-20 books I've just ordered from Amazon, mainly all Lisa's books too) to come so I can read Dark Visions, Secret Circle & the others I've ordered.

I think it's funny that everyone's talking about it. The other guestbooks are full of chat about TVD and The Forbidden Game . . . both amazing, but NW is definately my favourite! :-)
I agree with the werewolf thing, and LJ Smith actually said something similar herself in the Night World Fan Guide. Lupe is a good wolf though . . . and the name fits, I think Lupe is something about the moon in another language. Like Professor Lupin?

Yeah, I really like Dark Angel too. Gillians character is great, I like her and David a lot. Her story was reallly good and yeah, creepy to. I think shes a funny & likeable character. she went from really shy, to a bitchy kind of popular lol, to who she was supposed to be by the end, I thought it was a pretty perfect book.

I know, people always forge Dark Angel. I think it's because there aren't very many vampires and it's about a human and a girl who thinks she's a human, so it's very different to the other books.
I agree with you Lacey on the Gillian thing to. It must be mad to have your life change like hers did! lol ;-)
I actually quite like David too, he isn't sporty and popular in the same way that stupid Tom is in The Forbidden Game!

i do think that in the fourth book of the vampire diaries is bad ending wel i do like the first,the second and the third but the fourth know way!
i think that it is bad that one of the main characters died i mean it was elena and i think she is the most important. and then in the end of the book when she came back she came from a flash just like that but if you ignore that the book is very good :) ;)

Hi

everyone is entitled 2 their own opinion however the fact that u dislike the ending
shows lisa's talent, as she brought out the intellect in u to express / debate etc.
u felt something and that is the goal of the books, however i have read an old lj interview in which she said the original ending was book 3, elena's death but due 2 fan pressure bought her back in book 4 i.e. flash
it's been a while since i have read the series, im reading new series shadow souls but still remember how overjoyed i was when Elena was brought back but the Fact that u were drawn in so deeply 2 comment show's how real the character or secne was 2 u
lol
hope that helps

Hey, first I must say that The Vampire Diaries were the best series I have ever read, and I'm very disappointed that L.J.Smith is not continuing to write the following books. I would also like to say that I'm definitely a Damon and Elena fan and do not like the fact that there will be no more of them in the following series The Hunter.

lisa was doing "work 4 hire" meaning alloy the book packagers own the right's not her, she was naive and new and due to night of solice and heart of valour having good reviews but low sales she eagerly agreed 2 the contract unaware of she no longer owned her gorgeous characters D . E. S etc but it was her agent's responsibility who didn't inform lisa, disgustingly and now Alloy, after midnight sent her the manu-script 4 phantom with the ghost-writer changes - she wasn't informed respectfully but had the her manuscript with ghost-writer changes, nothing more ...
she didn't choose 2 stop, she was made 2 stop.

LJ Smith did say somewhere that in Strange Fate "seven go to save the world and two come back". Don't quote this either because I can't remember where I read it but I am 99.7% positive that it's true.
Although I'm kind of hoping that five of the characters (I assume the seven are Jez, Morgead, Maggie, Delos, Ilianna and whoever the next wild power and their soulmate are) just go on holiday and don't come back? The line LJ Smith said didn't actually say "Seven go to save the world and five die".
Phew . . .

Hi,
I remembered Lisa saying something about characters that die may not stay dead, too. I looked it up and found her comment under GB 1 near the bottom. She also promised that no one would die in vain. Even though I really don't want to see anyone die, I know that it is sometimes unavoidable and in a way makes the story more powerful.

I agree with you there. I hope there are too many deaths (if some have to die)because I will cry like a baby! I was in school when I was reading VD: Midnight. I had to put it down so that I didn't cry in the middle of form time. haha - I was gutted that I daren't read any more until I got home. Once home, i devoured it...and cried. My grandma said 'whats wrong' and I held up the book and said 'Damon's dead'. She walked out laughing at me. The best thing about Lisa's books is that I can still get into them each time; e.g. each time I read Midnight, I always cry when Damon's dead.

I'm not being cruel or cold but I think death scenes in books bring the book to life and I wouldn't enjoy the book as much if nobody died in it! As long as they don't die in vain and they aren't my favourite character anyway.
Also, it would be really unrealistic if it was the apocolypse and nobody died.
And I sometimes enjoying reading death scenes like in
***SPOILER ALERT!!!***
Soulmate. It was so beautiful with the promise and all that I cried. :cry: Then again in Huntress, even though Jez didn't fully die, it still got me emotional!

I love the Night World series soooo much. I love all the soulmates and Ash's sisters. I also love how Lisa writes such strong characters. They are great role models even the quiet, shy, ordinary girls like Gillian. She shows that every person has a strenght inside them, a uniqueness no matter how odinary yhey seem that makes them special. :lol:

I cannot express how much I love Damon and Elena. It devastated me to hear about what they did to LJ because of it. Damon and Elena are forever endgame and one of my favorite fictional character/coupl es ever. I will not sponsor ANY book that she has not written. I am a fan at the fanpop "Damon and Elena" spot and we cherish VD in books and show. I am hoping that the show can give you the honor of a DE endgame. But they are always in my eyes. Thanks LJ !!!

That's an interesting question and so hard to choose. Keller and Galen are my favorite couple, so I would have to say Keller. I think it would be awesome to be a shapeshifter as long as I was able to decide when to change. I also like that Keller is brave and loyal to her friends.

I think Jez and Rashel are great choices, too. Why did you choose them?

Jez: She is a very strong character with a attractive soulmate :D and she is very beautiful :lol: and has great determination to be on the right side of life. I also love all the funny things she says to morghead, and vice versa.

Rashel: She's the kind of person i fantasise about being. She is strong, knows how to fight and protects people. Sometimes i try and get into a fighting stance ( it usually fails ) . She also says "this kitten has claws" and people used to call me kitty. I also think Quinn would be a great soulmate.

Mary-Lynnette because we share the same interests; astronomy, reading, walking in the woods, science . . . we're both country girls. Stuff like that.
I really respect Hannah and Jez too, but I couldn't choose between them. I want to make a difference in the world and I could do this being either of the characters.
But, yeah, Mary-Lynnette is definately my first choice. I see the world through her eyes.

hmmm... Either M'Lin, Thea, Blaise :D, Rashel, Jez or Keller.
But I think M'Lin's a tad too nice for me... probably the same for Thea even if I love them both.
I also love Blaise but I doubt with that attitude she could find love (sorry to sound corny and whatever)
I think in the end it'd have to be Keller. Because she pretends to be strong and everything even though she's insecure which I can relate to. And the way she denies her love because it could save people she doesn't even like I thought that was quite heroic of her. But I do love them all.

I don't know who I would want to be specificaly but probably someone like Jez. Especially in the half&half sense. But it would be cool to be half lamia and half witch, and then if you were powerful enough you could also shapeshift into some kind of animal, which would be wonderful lol. I really love Rowan though, she seems like a wonderful leader. She can be fierce and very protective, and also calm and collected, and loyal. And Ash said he loved that she could always say the right thing and make everyone understand. I admire Rowan a bit, I think I'd want to be her. She kind of seems like an Old Soul sometimes to.

Hmm...tough one. First of all the Top 5 boys that I love from Night World are;
James
Ash
Quinn
Delos
Morgead
Then if I narrow that down to the Top 3;
James
Ash
Delos
Then if I pick one from that list...I'd choose;
Delos : because...he said each time that he wouldn't help Maggie next time he saw her but he did. And he tried to protect her (sort of) by wanting to make her a vampire (at first) because he thought the NW would win not the humans. He's also handosme but I think its the inside that counts so that makes him really caring, strong, brave...

I Don't think I'd have Quinn because the whol non-ageing thing and I don't know if'd really be able to be a vampire straight away. So I'd have to say Galen. :lol: I think the way even though he doesn't know if he can really fight he still tries to save Keller (and the others) and he's so nice and he basically without think about it chose his other shape because it'd help Keller even though it was nothing like what he'd originally wanted.

I bought them in 1991 (rather had Dad get them for me) and I have read and re-read the first four to the point that book one is being held together with masking tape. It may sound crazy but I have spent the last 15 years or so (I'm 31 now) in love with your bad boy Damon. You are truely an inspiration to those of us that one day will get the nerve to send finished books to a publisher. Thank you and never stop helping others find the keys to unlocking their own imaginations.

If one day, a character from Night World jumped out of the pages, who would you want it to be??

I just wanted to say I love the vampie diaries series and am extremely upset you will not be letting her finish the series. Taking away her freedom to write it the way she feels fit is wrong, just because you wish for another ending because you think it will sell more. Typical! It is like symboliclly cutting her creative wings. I would love to see how it plays out in her mind in wtitten word. Her stories are brilliant. I hope you will not put her name on it, and if you do it will sell only because of that, and i for one will not buy it.

I agree with you 100% about being extremely upset about the ghostwriter issue. I feel you are doing the single most important thing you could do to protest this decision by refusing to buy the ghostwritten books.

I'm confused too. Are all the answers for the contest found in Secret Circle book 1 or the whole series? I thought that the first master tool was found in book 1 and the other master tools were found by Cassie, but on the blog, it says that the master tools are what the leader wears, and if Diana is the leader, there's only two object that she wears that I think are the master tools, but then again, the first master tool was found by a member in the coven. So which is it? Someone please respond.

I think the answers to the questions are found throughout all the Secret Circle books. Also remember that the question says that the master tools were hidden by the ancient coven. They are all something the coven leader wears. I think you are on the right tract. Maybe reread some parts. It may seem confusing at first, but when you find the right answer, it will make sense.

Thanks. You said that the master tools are the item the circle leader wears but **spoiler alert for those who hasn't read book 1** Adam found a master tool but Diana doesn't wear it, unless Faye wears it in the other books (I didn't read the full book 2 and 3 yet...)

Both books are owned by Alloy Entertainment. Both series were "writer for hire". After what happened with TVD, I am not surprised that Alloy decided to go into that direction. Especially if Lisa has Cassie ending up with Nick as opposed to Adam. My guess is they are trying to prevent Lisa from taking the story in a direction they wouldn't want and from experience, they know she will fight to write it her way. I don't blame her for not getting involved with them and Harper again. As for that large novella, small book, maybe she could release it for free here, but I hate that for her. She should be paid for that work.

hmm, I can't decide between; Daughters of Darkness, The Chosen, Huntress and Witchlight. They are all so brilliant and I love all the soulmates but, its like, L.J makes all her books so individual that its almost impossible to compare them to get the best! D.o.D is cool because of ash & ml & the sisters story as to why they ran away. ash is simply amazing as is ML & it always makes me laugh. The chosen- cos' of Rashel & Quinn & Rashel's story as a little girl always makes me want to cry. Huntress- cos' I completely admire Jez & Morgead. I love the way the story just unravels with unexpected twist & turns! Witch Light- Keller, Nissa, Winnie, Galen & Iliana - all wonderfful AND its the only NW (so far) with a big deal about shapeshifters. this book made me fall in love with shapeshifters - especially panther ones! ;D haha

I love Daughters of Darkness - it's my absolute favourite, because I think it's a great storyline and it's actually really funny. "Welcome to Briar Creek, where nothing ever happens . . . "
And closely following are Soulmate, Enchantress and Witchlight! Ohh . . . I cried my eyes out in Witchlight. I remember finishing it and thinking "Oh no, what now?" and then I was like, "I think I'll just read them all again."

I agree with you, Daughters of Darkness is really funny! Once I got to the middle of chapter 3 after the girls found Aunt Opal dead & Rowan asked why Jade was bringing the kittens to the cellar & she said she wasnt she was looking for a shovel to bury them in the backyard. "There was a pause. Jade looked at her sisters and they looked at each other. Then all three of them looked at the kittens. Then they looked at Great-aunt Opal." I was dying of laughter. Maybe its a bit of a morbid thing to laugh at, but I thought it was funny. :-? After that I was like "Yup, im gonna like this one."

I can't think of anything worse done to an artist(by artist I mean a creative person, like an author) than to just TAKE AWAY the work she CREATED and worked SO hard on. I was furious when I found out about the Vampire Diaries, but now I am just disgusted. I kind of expected this though, because I didn't think they'd keep Lisa around for the SC after the ugly scene with the VD but that just makes me even more sickened with how awful some people are. They don't care about Lisa or her fan's happiness. All they care about is making money(which they won't if your petitions work)which is incredibly selfish and foolish because they'd make much more money and make a lot of fans happier with a writer as talented as Lisa. This is a perfect example of INJUSTICE and we won't stand for it!

ARE U WITH LISA OR AGAINST, JUST SAW UR COMMENT CONFUSED!
Quoting Damon Salvatore:
Now you are interesting, Sofia. Such passion and emotion devoted to all of these pathetic childish antics against LJ Smith.

I find it strange that Alloy publishing fired her from the project, and even stranger that someone reported me on
facebook for being "fake", though my social security card and driver's license cleared that right up.
As I have told her before (or maybe her agent) over myspace when it wasn't a dead website; I have grown interested in her books because of the irony of my name. Irony, people. I don't believe in coincidence. I've even taken slack by brave (cowardly) former friends who accused me of trying to be a vampire because of the exact same name but don't have the gall to face me man to man. When the timeframe around the publishing of the ghost-written book arrives; I'm ready and willing to lead a crowd if that's what must be done.

Hi Emma,
Yes, it is true! Lisa talks about it in GB 12. However, it may be awhile because it is not listed on the bibliography page as one of the projects she is currently working on.

Something about LJ's books fascinate me, especially the Forbidden Game and Night of the Solstice, stories that are based in mythologies and stories that are really in history and at first I didn't even know that Forbidden Game's about the Nine Realms of Norse but it was so fascinating. Even the Night of the Solstice when Morgana's last name was said, I was so amazed that I felt stupid why I didn't think about it.
I love the books so much and I hope the fourth book of night world would make me soar the same way the others did
Oh! And I'm rereading Dark Visions!!!! It still rocks!!!

where is the point in getting a ghostwriter to write VD, SC and anythign else someone is jealous enough of to wreck lisa's work?! they won't be the same! lisa's writing is just WOW! magical and has that specialness about it! its wrong to take her work away from her - I sincerely hope she manages to get all her planned sequels (espcially strange fate for NW) finished and published before something else comes up.
don't worry lisa, we are all behind you!

I agree with you. It was a terrible idea to use a ghostwriter for any of Lisa's books. We only want to read Lisa's books written by her.

The good news is that VD and SC are the only books associated with Alloy and the only ones that have a "work for hire" clause in their contracts. All Lisa's other books have regular contracts, and she has full author rights. No one will be allowed to hire a ghostwriter for them. I think Alloy will regret their decision when they see Lisa's new books becoming best sellers and the ghostwritten books getting low sales.

Just wondering, in the contest it says that L.J will inform the winner via twitter on september 15th. It also says that she will email them. What if I dont have twitter and I still want to enter the constest. Also, Lisa isn't going to be writing the Secret Circle continuation? What about Deep Waters? I was sooo excited though.

Hi:-) I returned from Holiday and now I have to tell you that Night World is fantastic but I haven't finished read yet.But now I am going to read:)I want to know what will happen.I like the idea about drinking blood. I mean that vampires need to drink humans blood because them blood gives oxygen. If the vampire don't drink blood he will not be able to breathe.it all makes sense:)I read a lot of books about Vampire but no one didn't tell why vampire have to drink blood.Lisa thank you for your idea:)Today I was on the polish site of the Vampire Diaries and I saw that fans wrote that they won't buy the new book(Phantom). They are angry on publishers and they want to support Lisa.Poland loves Lisa:-) All world loves Lisa and her books. I am so glad.I have a two questions or three ;P

Welcome back! I'm glad to hear Lisa's fans in Poland are supporting her. I'll do my best to answer your questions.
1) The thing about Elena and Damon is a new story :lol: It is a scene that didn't make it into Shadow Souls. It is really good. You should read it.
2) There is a contest going on for items based on The Secret Circle. You have to be able to answer some questions about the books. There are more details under the "Contest" tab at the top of this page.
3)You can contact Lisa at But she is taking a break from interacting with fan so that she can concentrate on writing.

There are three books in The Secret Circle series, The Initiation, The Captive, and The Power. They are also available as two omnibus with The Initiation and first half of the Captive in one and the second half of The Captive and The Power in the other.
This series is about witches. Cassie doesn't know she is a witch until she moves to New Salem and finds out that her new friends are witches and so is she. While she is living in her old town, she meets a guy named Adam and it is sort of love at first site. Then Adam shows up in her new town and she finds out he is actually her best friend's boyfriend. Throughout the series she struggles with being in love with Adam but wanting to be loyal to her friend. She is also starting to have feelings for Nick who is moody and mysterious. In addition, people in the town have been getting murdered and the witches are trying to find out what/who is behind it. I liked this series a lot and I think you will, too.

Hi Magdalena,
We are supposed to put Spoiler Alert in the subject line when we discuss specific things that happen in the books. That is just in case someone else hasn't read the book yet.
Damon is starting to come back to life at the end of Midnight. He is thinking about Bonnie and Elena. The last thing he remembers is his own name. In another guestbook, Lisa also confirmed that he was alive. I don't know what the ghostwriter will do with Damon. It makes me so sad that we will never know how the story was supposed to end. I guess we will just have to imagine our own ending.

Hi Christina. I am so sorry. I forgot about this very important thing. Now I will remember.
It is possible that Damon lost his memories? That's great that Damon survived but that's a pity that we will not know what will after "Midnight". I am so sad and my heart is bleeding. even if Damon will be in Phantom -I am not interested it, because Lisa won't write Phantom.It is possible that Lisa will write the next part of VD as fanfic? (her fanfic) It would be fantastic

Hi Jasmine,
I know what you mean about Keller and Galen. They are my favorite couple, too. I think maybe they were left off just as a way to limit choices. Eric/Thea and Mark/Jade and David/Gillian are also missing. I think they chose the most popular couples for the poll. It could also be that Lisa has already decided what happens to them (live or die).

Hi All

i was just reading secret circle, coincidently before the competition started and i remember it was my least fave series but once you get half into the first book it gets amazing, the second one is dynamic and the last one makes me want to put in down so it never ends, but im ignoring household chores etc. And am literally glued to it.
But im shocked, i remember as a kid hating it, no comparison to nightworld, forbidden games, dark visions or vampire diaires but im GLAD i read it as it is wonderful!

Im on the last book, the power - im loving it! and hating that it will end
lol
Everyone read it! Not just for the obvious reason but as a very diffrent series like dark visions that holds it own in a unique way, after this book i only wish lisa has a chance to write for werewolfs, there my least fave supernatural beings but i know lisa can show me there lovable and as traditions say, brave side
lol again
take care all

Hi Elizabeth,

I think having Midnight made into a movie would be a great idea. I agree that Jason Momoa would be perfect for Sage. That is just how I pictured him, too.

I’m curious about which of Lisa’s books/series other people would like to see made into movies and why. My top picks would be The Night of the Solstice/Heart of Valor and The Forbidden Game trilogy. I think these would look really cool with all of the special effects and CGI that they are able to include in movies these days. I think Solstice and Valor would also appeal to a younger audience and draw in more fans that haven’t read the books. The Forbidden Game should definitely be three separate movies. I like how the story continues but yet each book is completely different, too. In my opinion, there are not a lot of really good scary movies. Most “scary” movies are just a bunch of blood and guts. A Forbidden Game movie would provide scary without gore.
