The hunters become the hunted. . . .

Driven from their hometown of Mystic Falls, both Stefan Salvatore and his brother, Damon, arrived in Europe looking for a fresh start. But Samuel, a wealthy and cunning vampire, has other plans for them. First he ruined Stefan’s peaceful existence and now he’s framing Damon for the most gruesome murders London has ever seen.

United against their common enemy, Stefan and Damon are stunned when they realize that the source of Samuel’s rage lies in their past—tied up with the woman who forever changed their lives. Haunted by the memory of Katherine, the brothers find that their uneasy alliance is tested. Can they overcome their rivalry to defeat Samuel before he exacts his final revenge?

Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan’s Diaries reveals the truth about what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine—and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began.

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.
