\L.J.Smith writes Julian's character beautifully - making his character so charming, dangerous with a vulnerable side to him that can't help but make the reader sympathise much more with him rather than the rival love interest Jenny's boyfriend, Tom.
This series has given me many a day dream surrounding the ever elusive Julian. The books provide great food for thought and I really do think that this (along with the Dark Vision series) is L.J.Smith's best work. I'd arguably say it's much better then Twilight in ever way. I'd certainly recommend it - particularly to teenage girls.
Jenny buys a game for her boyfriend Tom's birthday party but what she doesn't realise is that this game is real and that she and her friends are about to become trapped in the game where they must defeat Julian The Shadow Man. Julian's rules are simple. If they win they can leave and if they don't Jenny will become his forever....
All three books in the series are here and I enjoyed reading them and was sorry to finish the last book.
L.J. Smith is a fantastic author and I loved the characters.
All the characters are well written and Julian is a charming, dangerous boy who just wants to be loved by the girl he's been in love with from afar for years. You can't help but fall for him. This series is full of twists and turns and its not your normal paranormal love story. Its a story about friendship, love, heartbreak and facing your fears. Once you begin reading you can't put it down. I cried like a baby at the end.
If you're looking for a story that is different then read this. I have never come across a story that is like it and I'm still head over heels for the series since they were first published in the 1990's.
Not giving away any spoilers!Suitable for teens and up!:D
It's difficult to pin down quite what makes it so fantastic. On the surface at least, it's not much different from any of the hundreds of "paranormal romance" titles that dominate the teen sections of bookshops. There are however lots of factors that make it special:
*The plot is rather unusual. Yes, it's your standard girl meets mythical being, but rather than the endless vampires/witches/angels etc it's focussed on Norse mythology, which I at least have never seen used before.
*Speaking of mythology, there's lots of detail about runes and the Nine Worlds and German legends, which really adds depth without ever weighing the story down. Similarly, there's some clever stuff referencing history and literature and even surrealist painters, all of which is neatly weaved into the plot
*At times, especially in the first book, the supporting characters seemed in danger of being a bit 2 dimensional - the glamorous one, the sporty one, the geeky one - but as the story goes on, they really develop and they become one of the most interesting supporting casts I can remember in a book like this. I could really visualise all of them and imagine how they'd react to any given situation.
*Moving away from the supporting characters though and on to the star of the show - Julian.Read more ›
