Let’s do the reminder Excerpt that sits at the front of the book again. because it’s there for the reason and were here for that same one.

The Night World... love was never so scary.
The night world isn’t a place. It’s all around us. It’s a secret society of vampires, werewolves, witches, and other creatures of darkness that live among us. They’re beautiful and deadly and irresistible to humans. You high school teacher could be one, and so could your boyfriend.
The Night world laws say it’s OK to hunt humans. It’s OK to toy with their hearts; it’s even OK to kill them. There are only two things you can’t do with them.
      1) Never let them find out the Night World exists.
      2) Never fall in love with one of them.
These are stories about what happens when the rules get broken.

This one is a little better than the first. But then, that’s natural when it comes to a series, right? They get better. the characters are more interesting, the setting isn’t so much about the world building, because were three books in, and it’s a simple world, but it’s not the focused as much as it was in the first sets.
If that makes sense, because you can still read these books individually and get where it’s heading—where it’s been.

Dark Angel was my least favourite in the lot, mostly because it’s about what happens when you get popular and the shit that goes with it.
Mostly it’s about magic, angels, the boy she loves actually seeing her, and the stubbles she takes to get what she wants and free herself of a life she didn’t know she belonged to.
The chosen, is a killer story, it’s one of the top favourites and especially in the book.
Bad boy vampire Quinn falls for the hunter Rashel. She knows who he is, he didn’t see her face but when girls are taken and Rashel finds a way to help save them, Quinn falls and changes the way he is. For her. For him.

Soulmate, is actually, to me, a story that’s more about the past. This one actually tells us the story how things were really created threw her flashbacks. Then it goes into what they want to achieve and where things are sorta heading.
It’s interesting, that’s the most of what I can think to describe it. Though it’s not bad, it’s a look at the past, at the beginning of the vampires and that’s really cool.
This one is mostly cool because you get to see all the characters from the past books as they are in a meeting as well as rescuing the damsel.
