The Asylum is the fifth book in L.J. Smith’s bestselling Stefan’s Diaries series, which reveals the backstory of brothers Stefan and Damon from The Vampire Diaries series.

Trust has never come easily to Stefan and Damon, but now that Samuel—a vampire from Katherine’s past bent on revenge—is determined to ruin their lives, the Salvatores must join forces to defeat their foe. Samuel has already ruined Stefan’s chances at a normal life, and now he’s framing Damon for the Jack the Ripper murders, too.

However, while finding Samuel is easy, Damon and Stefan quickly learn that stopping him may be nearly impossible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was another exciting book. Once you start a book by LJ Smith you can't stop reading it until it's all done. She captures you in her writing like you are part of the story

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same plot arc continues So if you've read this book, you've read the earlier books in the series. If not, you should read them. The Ripper plot continues, but the book ends far too quickly with too little learned or accomplished. it reads like a filler books but still is easier to read and follow than the original TVD book series. These books are meant to foreshadow the TV show and like the show these prequels are quite addictive. We see little development of Stefan and Daemon's characters... but having a plot arc revolve around an asylum is still quite interesting. You'll learn a little more about Kathrine's past before she came to the Salvatore brothers. The Jack the Ripper plot is interesting, but it's been two books now and we can anticipate a third. Id rather see the Salvatore brothers have to deal with World War 1 or something next. Hopefully this'll get wrapped up and we can continue.
