Witchlight - Featured Author Review

Book 9 in Nightworld series
by LJ Smith
Genres: Paranormal, Romance,
      Young Adult

     In the 9th and so far last installment in the Nightworld series, the third Wild Power has been located. Keller, a shapeshifter who can transform into a black panther, and her team is dispatched by the Daybreakers to secure and guard this very important person. Keller has no patience for the girl she is supposed to protect, often thinking of her as a bubble-headed Barbie. She soon realizes that her charge isn't as superficial as she had originally thought and gains respect for her as she learns that the girl exudes unconditional love and genuinely cares for people, no matter the situation.

     As the apocolypse approaches another ancient power is unearthed and awakened. This deadly being is much more powerful than the soulmate principal but not nearly as much fun.

     I'm so disappointed for the series to end here. Since it was written in the 90's I had incorrectly thought that I could just buy the last book in the series. It hasn't been published yet - author L.J. Smith is still working on it and has yet to even release an expected publication date. Unverified rumors state that the conclusions will be over 1,000 pages and well worth the 15 year wait.

     I think the thing that I hate most about series like this is that eventually it ends and it is like having to say goodbye to close friends. I definitely recommend this book to all readers, young and old, who enjoy vampire, witch, and/or werewolf stories.
