Night World Book 1 by LJ Smith

"Vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters -- they live among us without our knowledge. Night World is their secret society, a secret society with very strict rules. And falling in love breaks all the laws of the Night World.

In Secret Vampire, Poppy thought the summer would last forever. Then she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Now Poppy's only hope for survival is James, her friend and secret love. A vampire in the Night World, James can make Poppy immortal. But first they both must risk everything to go against the laws of Night World.

Fugitives from Night World, three vampire sisters leave their isolated home to live among humans in Daughters of Darkness. Their brother, Ash, is sent to bring the girls back, but he falls in love with their beautiful friend.

Two witch cousins fight over their high school crush. It's a battle between black magic and white magic in Spellbinder. "

Night World Volume 1 by LJ Smith is a collection of three different stories. The stories are Secret Vampire, Daughters of Darkness, and Spellbinder. The main theme in each story is the issue of a night world member finding a human soul mate. While that might not seem like a huge issue, the problem is that the night world consists of vampires, witches, werewolves, and other creatures. This then becomes a problems as the rules forbid their secrets being exposed to a human. If they are they then could be prosecuted and killed.

In general, I found the stories to be rather predictable but enjoyable. What I found especially nice was that each story was connected somehow because of family. Several characters get mentioned in each story even though it seems they wouldn't be connected. So while each story is different, they are all connected and related.

I won't go into detail over each story because this would then become a very long review. Despite the predictability and at times, the annoying plot in the first two stories, I would give this a 7 out of 10. I am very interested in reading the next book in the series just to see if the characters mentioned in the 1st come up in the second!
