The Nightworld series is about people of the NightWorld, finding there soulmantes but in the process revealing there secrets to humans.
Secret Vampire is the first in this series and is a excellent book, Poppy a young human girl finds out that she is dying from a form of cancer (you cant help feeling so sorry for her, shes such a sweet character) and then theres her dark brooding best friend James who will try anything to keep his best friend from dying, even revealing the NightWorld to her and trying to convince her to turn into a vampire like him so she can stay alive with him forever, how romantic!
There are many twists to this story that you dont expect to happen and the way they both realise there love for eachother makes a very liekable story.
L.J.Smith has created a very believable world hidden from our view that you can actually believe is out there somewhere, and her characters are so nice and kind that you can relate to them straight away and believe that they exist.
I would recommend this book to and child or young adult who likes a good fantasy romance!
So in conclusion BUY THIS BOOK
Until the pain in her abdomen, which has steadily been increasing, working its way around to her back, keeping her awake at night, and causing her to lose weight, sends her to the doctor. Who then sends her to the hospital for tests. Where doctors then inform her that she has pancreatic cancer--the kind that will kill you within three weeks to three months.
Poppy, of course, isn't ready to die. Watching the reaction of her family--twin brother Phil, her mother, and step-father Cliff--only brings the truth closer to home. Poppy is going to die, there's nothing anyone can do about it, and it's going to be painful.
Except there is someone who can do something about it. James Rasmussen, her best friend from El Camino High School, her secret crush, a boy who now tells her something impossible--he's a lamia, a boy who was born a vampire, a member of the Night World, and he can change Poppy into a vampire to avoid certain death.
Of course Poppy doesn't believe him at first, but then what choice does she have? There's always been something different about James, and now she knows exactly what the difference is. So she agrees to become a vampire, knowing she'll have to leave her family behind, but knowing it's the only way to avoid certain death.Read more ›
