Elena: the golden girl, the leader, the one who can have any boy she wants.
Stefan: brooding and mysterious, he seems to be the only one who can resist Elena, even as he struggles to protect her from the horrors that haunt his past.
Damon: sexy, dangerous, and driven by an urge for revenge against Stefan, the brother who betrayed him. Determined to have Elena, he’d kill to possess her.
Collected here in one volume for the first time, volumes one and two of The Vampire Diaries, the tale of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.
So I’m a huge fan of The Vampire Diaries show on the CW, and after starting to watch the show I decided I had to read the books that such an amazing show would be based on. I absolutely loved what I found! The Vampire Diaries was so addicting. I absolutely loved the plot – it kept you going, going, going until the end where it leaves you pining for the next book.
I wasn’t as big of a fan of the writing as I was the plot. The plot was amazing, but I felt The Vampire Diaries could’ve been better written. I loved the characters in The Vampire Dairies, especially Stefan and Damon. Damon had you drawn to his character, while you know you should detest him.
LJ Smith keeps you on the edge the whole book. She mixes in romance, suspense, and a bit of mystery. The books get better and better as you read! I really enjoyed book 1, The Awakening, and The Struggle, book 2, only got better!
After reading books 1 and 2, I cannot wait to go get the rest of the books! They are absolutely addicting.
