The series takes place in a world similar to our own but one where vampires, witches, werewolves and shape-shifters live among humans without their knowledge. These supernatural races make up a secret society known as the Night World, which enforces two fundamental laws to prevent discovery: 1) Never allow humans to gain knowledge of the Night World's existence and, 2) Never fall in love with one of them. Armed with a wooden stake, martial arts, and the will to resist a vampire’s mind control, Rachel struggles to avenge her mother’s death in The Chosen. Then she meets Quinn, her soulmate, who is part of the world she has vowed to destroy. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 2/18/2014

    " Night World is fantastic with short stories and leaving you wishing they were full blown Novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mercy | 2/15/2014

    " I really enjoyed 2 of the three stories in this book. The first one is one of those that you know whats going to happen and it makes it hard to read the rest. But I got through it and the others were good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosetti Villamor | 2/14/2014

    " Dark Angel is the worst book among all the Night World books. It was really boring in the first two-thirds part of the book. The Chosen and Soulmate were ten times better. It was in Soulmate when I really tried to blink away tears. And I don't cry that easily. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie-Lee | 2/11/2014

    " i loved this book along with the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosetapestry | 2/1/2014

    " Books 4-6 in the series. They start to get a bit repeptitive as far as the theme goes (various Night World people/creatures finding their soulmates) but as enjoyable and quick summer reading goes, they remain excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mareena | 1/27/2014

    " I kinda read these out of order, I read the first set and then the third. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariel | 1/19/2014

    " I love this book as well. My favorite story in this book would have to be Quinn and Rasheal, they just complete each other... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teena | 1/10/2014

    " The Chosen is my favorite. "

    " great set of books once more especially like soul mate, i read that book on its own a while ago not realising it was in a series i then proceeded to buying the whole of the night world series which are all great i obvs had my favourite but i'll let you guys pick your own. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrita Manna Manna | 1/6/2014

    " Getting repetative "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 12/19/2013

    " I liked the first book "Dark Angel". The second book "The Chosen" was hard to finish. I did not finish The third book "Soulmate". I read the first 2 chapters and I really did not want to read any more of it. It didn't grab me I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 faeriemyst | 12/13/2013

    " Three easy teen paranormal reads that was some nice and easy brain candy. I don't have too much to say about the books; each story was better than the one before it, but I'll most likely forget them in a week, possibly two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fadya Abdul | 12/8/2013

    " It was preettyt Good aswell. LOVED Soulmates, how all the other charactersfrom the oer stories were in it!!! The Chosen was Craazy the main character is soo independent and stroong! "

    " I love this series so much that the day bought the first book i went right back to the book store which was 45 minutes away! and bought the other two books, now i'm only waiting for the fourth one to come but i am running out of patience. I have been waithing so long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 11/11/2013

    " When reading Soulmate, I could not remember, for the life of me, which story had mentioned the characters Thierry and Maya. It kills me to read the whole story not being able to recall this fact. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonja | 10/23/2013
