Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Bought the whole series and love reading it great book
Date published: 2016-11-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average, light read Well I wasn't expecting much and I didn't really get much back. The 3rd and 4th books in the Vampire Diaries series are extremely light reads. The ideas are good but there is a lacking of detail. Elana has turned into a vampire and Stefan and Damon are still fighting over her. But suddenly a new power source has entered the scene and the brothers realise that they have to join forces to have any chance of challenging this new evil. The second half of the book deals with the after effects of the fight and how the brothers handle it. I didn't feel driven to keep reading this book. Even though it was meant to be a thrilling storyline, the writing style didn't support it. The biggest letdown was that I never liked Damon, even though you are meant to be as torn between the brothers as Elana is. He is meant to be bad but irresistible. I just found him evil and stubborn. If I was Elena, there wouldn't be any confusion about which brother I would choose. I will continue reading the whole series but I wouldn't recommend it highly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the tv show If you watched the show before you read the books, like I did you may find yourself not liking it. I love the show but am not that fond of the books this one in particular. The book was slow moving and honestly I don't even want to start the 4th one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I'd read these when first published. 3.5 stars In The Fury (the 3rd book in The Vampire Diaries), odd things are happening around town. Stefan, Damon and Elena call it the "Other Power" that is causing it, but they don't know what that Other Power is. They are trying to figure it out and stop it before people get hurt. This one was pretty much action, start to finish, but somehow for me, things almost went too quickly, and I can't even explain why I didn't like that things went as quickly as they did; normally, past-paced appeals to me. Some people's secrets are revealed, and there is a bit of a surprise at the end of The Fury. Dark Reunion (The Vampire Diaries, book 4) is told primarily from Bonnie's viewpoint. When someone in their group of friends in murdered, they have to find out who did it/what happened and stop it before someone else gets hurt. I thought Dark Reunion was different from the other books and I liked the change, although I thought the end was unrealistic (yes, I know it's all supernatural, and therefore all unrealistic, but for the tone of the books, I just didn't think the ending fit). Because of the tv show, some of the things that might have been a surprise weren't, but because there are also so many things different from the tv show, there were still some surprises. I actually wish I had known about these books when they were first published in the early 90s. I'm sure I would have liked them even more back then.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened? Something in the series has changed. The first two books were great but something has happened in the writing for the third and fourth. Maybe its just something that I am noticing now but things don't always add up. There are things that should be further explained and are not. The story line randomly changes and we are not given a heads up. I'm going to continue the series because its a series and is apparently very popular.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Starting to go downhill... I liked the first half (The Fury), but the second half (Dark Reunion) just shouldn't have happened. Overall I really think they should have stopped the plot either after 'The Struggle' or 'The Fury'. All I could imagine when they described the bad guy was Jack Frost from the Santa Claus movie.. Not to frightening. I'm not particularily looking forward to the rest of the series, but I will be reading it anyways. I say stick with the t.v. show, it has a better plot. *Spoiler* Bonnie wrote such a beautiful diary entry after vampire Elena died (the end of 'The Fury'). Although it sucks that Elena was gone "forever", it was such a good ending. Then they had to go and ruin it by bringing Elena back for the second time. Gah! (The first time being when she came back as a vampire). Even the ending for 'The Struggle' was really good. Not many novels end with a drowning heroine. I would've been good if it stopped there too. I know, a little dreary.. But what can I say? I like something different now and then.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD!!!!!!!!! Brutally. Awful so boring, i had to force myself to read it because i wasted money on it, don't waste your time on your money. Although i know these books were written in 1991 so maybe they were great back then....but I can honestly say i am not a fan of these books.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from s'okay This is definitely geared towards a teen novel. The plot is light and lacking in intensity. The characters are comparable to the high school genre. But at least after everything, Elena and Stefan are together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay The Fury had a slow start and I really struggled getting through Dark Reunion. Not as good as the Night World series. I hope Nightfall is better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Have Finally Been Awakened And Went Through The Struggle And The Fury Which Lead To A Dark Reunion So, let's just say this book was way better than the first one. Elena was more...modest would probably be the word Stefan looked and acted like he loves her and Damon was a handsome and dangerous as ever. In The Fury Elena has changed but it wasn't Stefan or Damon who changed her it was someone else... Elena is now a hunter which means that she has to be invited into houses and that isn't possible because everyone thinks she's dead. There is another Power, who is killing and threatening people, playing with their minds...And no it isn't Damon... In the Dark Reunion Elena has disappeared from her family her friends and her beloved...they don't want to think she's really dead. But will they find her? And will they find who changed her? In my opinion I really, really enjoyed this book! It was filled with so many unexpected experiences and even characters that you forgot about in the previous book. L.J Smith put me into shock with what happens and I like how you can't tell what's about to happen next or which character is going to pop up! Truly recommend this series so far so amazing! Can't wait to get started on the third one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vampire Diaries The Fury and Dark Reunion I love this series and this book is by far the best one in the series. It almost made me cry 4 times and is filled with surprises. I recommend it to almost anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad... I read both books (all four parts) in about 2 weeks. I found it an easy read, definatley geared towards teens. However, I was disappointed. I found the plot weak, especially in the last part. I did not enjoy the introduction of a warewolf as I found that it was a weak addition to the story. I must admit I did enjoy that it had some twists and turns I did not expect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vampire Diaries: It Will Keep You Up All Night This is the second novel of the vampire diaries series, which includes volumes 3 &4: The Fury is the third volume and The Dark Reunion is the fourth volume. Dark Reunion was originally set to be the conclusion of the series, but the author continued it years later.... Please do not read further unless you have finished volume 2 (The Struggle), because there are minor spoilers! The Fury is about Elena, who was just in a horrific car accident, leaving her dead and an angry Stefan looking for revenge against Damon for believing that he was the cause of her death. However, during the deathly battle between brothers, Elena suddenly appears, but she is confused and disoriented: she's in love with Damon and hates Stefan! She has no memory of her relationship with Stefan, and she was determined to even kill him!! Both brothers suddenly stop their deathly fight to figure out what has happened to Elena and how she came back to life, as well as why she has no memory of ever loving Stefan. Stefan and Damon decide to trust Matt in their secret in order to save Elena's life and hopefully return her to her normal state of mind (not that Damon is complaining). Throughout this whole volume, Elena is confused of who to love: the sensitive and sweet Stefan who has been there for her, or the dangerous and wild Damon who will show her how to have fun in life. There is also a new and strange dark force that is possessing the town dogs by making them attack their owners, leaving the two brothers to work together with one of the teachers, who turns out that he has his own secrets. The townspeople are beyond frightened and some even turn the blame on Stefan by having suspicions of who is really is. As it turns out, the dark and powerful force is more related to Damon's and Stefan's past than they realize....This volume was the best one out of the four volumes of the vampire diaries. The ending will leave you speechless and there are some major twists and surprises throughout the whole volume that will leave you in suspense! The fourth volume, which was originally set to be the conclusion of the series, is Dark Reunion. Please do not continue reading unless you have finished The Fury because there are spoilers to the previous volume! With Elena gone, Stefan and Damon move back to Italy in order to reclaim some part of their old lives, leaving Elena's friends, Bonnie and Meredith, alone. Bonnie, with the help of Meredith, Caroline, Vickie and Sue, contact Elena by using a ouija board, and Elena informs them that they better get out of the house right away! However, Elena's friends are too late, and they are chased in Caroline's dark house, leaving one of the girls dead. Elena continues to contact Bonnie throughout her dreams, and leaving her clues as to who the murderer is and how to stop him. Bonnie uses a summoning spell and contacts Stefan and Damon to come back and help them fight the murderer. Vickie seems to be back in her scared trance, and Stefan and Damon, with the help of Matt, Meredith and Bonnie, figure out that the murderer is somehow beyond human and that it will continue to kill the townspeople until every single one of them is dead... starting with Vickie. Stefan and Damon take turns watching her house for any signs of who the dark creature is. However, Stefan and Damon have a huge fight about trust, causing Damon to leave Stefan alone to deal with the murders. Elena's friends insist that Stefan needs human blood to be strong enough to fight whatever it is that is killing everyone, but Stefan continues to refuse. Bonnie reunites Stefan and Elena in a dream, which Stefan finds out who the real murderer is with Elena's help. Stefan must find someone who has survived the attacks of this murderer, who can somehow tell him how to defeat it. During the conclusion, there was a huge battle between Stefan and the murderer, with the evil help of one of Elena's classmates! The ending really shows how much Stefan and Damon care for each other. Elena then makes a surprising and shocking entrance with supernatural forces in order to help defeat the murderer.... This volume was enjoyable, but there were some really slow parts throughout the plot. The ending did not explain how Elena came back, especially since this was originally supposed to be the final volume of the series. The ending was also not very realistic and it leaves the reader wondering what happened. Overall, this volume was a good read, but lacked explanation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good... These two were really different from the first two. The first two are really good vampire books but in these two it was really different, more paranormal than anything, I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great book Elena is a great character and there is always some kind of trouble around the corner for her. With Damon and Stefan who both love Elena, will the brother's kill each other just so one of them can have her, or will Elena die and the brother's will have history repeat itself? But love is not the only thing they have to deal with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from W-O-W! This series is just really amazing. I found the characters to be so well done, interesting, and well thought out. My favorite characters are Bonnie and Matt, but I can't think of one character that wasn't well thought out and planned. W-O-W!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Fury & The Dark Reunion The Fury: I really really like this book, though the begining was weird and there is no explication for Elena weird behavior.The ending was perfect but sad and it should have been the end of the series. For this book I give five stars. The Dark Reunion: It was a little weird reading this book because for me The Fury was the end of the series and I feel like this book didn't have its utility. However this book was good and interesting but the end of it was weird and maybe it was too much of a happily ever after and it just destroy the awesome ending of The Fury.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Conclusion This is book 3 and 4 of the Series. The Fury and The Dark Reunion. This book was packed with action and excitement. A lot is explained from the first book. Things come together in full force. The Dark Reunion was a action-packed, emotional story. I strongly recommend The Vampire Diaries Series to anyone who loves Romance books with a paranormal twist. But like i said before, Don't go into this series expectiing something like the Twilight Saga, although the books do share similaries, The Vampire Diaries is whole differen't series in itself. So Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shocking! WOW. Shocking! it was really good. I throughly enjoyed it. So much surprises and shockers. I can't believe i waited a whole year to start this one. I should of started it, as soon as i finished the first book. Now im excited because, there is a third one, and a television series coming out. So far they have Elana, Stefan and Damon wrong in the series,(i believe). But it was a really good book all in all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Even better then the first I jumped right into this one after reading the first two volumes. It kept its momentum for me. I started to more and more like Damon. Who doesn't like the sexy sarcastic bad guy. It takes some good twists and turns and keeps you sucked in. It is climbing up on my favorite series list.

I for one thought that these books foramazing! I loved the fury andhow it ended was a bit upsetting...But when it came to The dark reunion, at first i thought it was way to weird, and there really isn't apoint but it didnt stop me from reading it and im glad i did. I really enjoyed it! I would recommend it! All there isnow is to wait for the 5thbook!! =)!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fabulous! WOW, I loved the ending to this saga. I just am not sure if the next novel called "Vampire Diaries: The Return Volume I: Nightfall" is part of this saga but if so I am SO glad because I REALLY want to know what happens to Damon, Stephen, Ellena Bonnie, Meredith and just pretty much all of them. However, even if it's not part of the series GOD I can't wait. L. J. Smith is a REALLY amazing author. Anyways, I would recommend this novel to any Twilight Lovers and pretty much anyone that loves a happy read :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT!!!! I dont know why I waited so long to buy this series. I must have looked at it and read reviews for about two months then I finally decided to just buy it.....I am soooo glad I did! After reading the first book I was so excited to read this one. It was amazing, IMO 100% better than Twilight, because it wasnt so drawn out and had way more action. It was quick paced and just plain good. The plot was excellent and the characters are amazing. Im already reading another book by this author (and so far its pretty good!) While I was reading other reviews I read that some people think that the second part of the book was useless, well without giving away any spoilers I have to tell you that its not! If it didnt have the second part I would have been very disappointed with the ending and as a result probably would have hated the entire series. I dont quite understand how everything happened at the very end but I am so glad it did, it was the perfect conclusion to an amazing story!!! I would totaly recommend this series to anybody!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Follow-up and Ending The Fury The third book in the series offers several great twists and a great ending. I've always really liked novels that make you think twice about a character and where bad guys become good guys or vice versa. That's a great switch up on Damon here, though I feel like there was much more alluded to him that wasn't really explained. There's a lot more going on under the surface that I was hoping we'd get to see, but maybe will be addressed in the next one. The other thing I have noticed in these novels is the sex... or, you know, lack thereof. It's a big thing these days and even teen novels can't escape the mentions, insinuations, or youthful tension regarding the subject. But in The Vampire Diaries it doesn't come up even once. It sort of got me wondering if that was a sign of the decades, where in the early nineties that was a no-no for youth reading, whereas nowadays it's quite acceptable and often expected. Stefan and Elena never even think about it, let alone discuss the subject. It actually made for quite refreshing reading. Because the subject was never broached at all, there weren't any moral issues regarding "should they or shouldn't they" and the characters didn't spend tons of pages agonizing over it. With the way The Fury ended, it really makes you wonder where the fourth will pick up. You get so used to the cliffhangers, but at the end of this one, it all seems to be tied up in a nice little bow. Makes you wonder if this was not originally meant to be a trilogy. Dark Reunion Wow! This fourth and final part of the series takes a decidedly more serious and much darker turn. There's a lot of imagery in here emphasizing Bonnie's fear and creating a great atmosphere for the whole story. This story really brought together all the parts and tied up most of the loose ends. I say most if only because the whole Mrs. Flowers issue isn't truly resolved. I would have really been interested in finding out more about her and why she wasn't at all surprised by anything that the kids did. Aside from that, we find out a bit more about Caroline and Tyler... while Damon's character is revealed in pieces, letting us know that he was never as he appeared from the beginning. Matt's fears and hesitations are also addressed and it's interesting to see how far he goes and who brings him back. This was all so much fun and it was nice to see that after all this time the whole series is still so much fun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pointless This series should have stopped at Fury, the last book Dark Reunion was completely pointless, as if the story ended then the author came up with a random story just to tack on, and of which I found was completely bogus... I don't know how that happy ending is suppose to work, there was absolutely no explanation for it. Just like the first volume I thought this dragged on.
Date published: 2008-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Along with the first book, I thought this series was amazing. I felt so bad for Stephan when Elena was first turned into a vampire and told Damon he was the one she loved. Stephen seems so sweet, but Damon showed he can be sweet too. Later on in the book that is. I especially like the ending. I can't say why because I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read it yet. But overall this was an amazing series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good book i really enjoyed reading this book. There were times when i wanted to cry but there was also times i laughed out loud. Although the ending was open it was happy. I'm really happy that Elena didn't stay a vampire because i didn't like her as much when she was. Actually i didn't like the whole book at that point in the story but ya like i said I'm happy she did not stay that way!! I would recommend this book to anyone who can read it. PS Don't miss the first book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another Sequel... I'm actually going to give this book a 3 1/2, but the stars don't show that. Now, as far as sequals go, this isn't terrible. I found that characters developed a lot in this 2 in 1 book. However, I did feel like everything was really rushed. At times I felt there should have been more description, more details, or just more. Sometimes it felt like everything was happening way too fast. Nonetheless, it is a good book, and if you've read the first two you have to read the last two. And another thing I found was that at the end you were left with more questions than answers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing This is one of my favorite vampire love stories. Its about Elena, a popular girl who gets everything she wants!! Until Stefan, the new mysterious (not to mention gorgeous) boy moves into town. But he doesn't seem to be interested at all in Elena. She becomes obsessed to know everything about him! But will his dark past turn her away or make her love him more!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I didn't like the ending I really liked this book! The only think I found wrong with it was the ending. It was really depressing and i thought she could have beena little more creative. Other than that i would definetly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good vampire novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This was the last book in the vampire diaries and I loved it. A lot of it was really sad. Like what happens to Elena, Stefan, and Damon. But over all it was a wonderful and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good vampire novel.
