A malevolent being has infiltrated the town and is growing stronger. Able to possess Damon at will, the creature is also drawn to Elena and the new power she has acquired. But it's after more than Elena's power: It thirsts for her death.

Elena's story continues in shadow souls!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How is this all possible? Ok so at the end of the last book Elena was perfectly fine, although apparently brought back to life, now she isn't able to talk and floats around? How is this even possible? With no explanation and no heads up this book left me completely confused and felt like I was jumping into the middle of another story line. What happened? This book is completely confusing. The TV show is better and I don't know how much longer I can waste my time reading this series. L.J Smith either need to re-read her series and try again or re-think her writing and communication skills.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have no idea what's going on with this series. I started reading these books because I, like many other people, started watching the show and fell in love with it. That is a good piece of fiction. The original 4 books, aren't great writing, because LJ Smith is not a good writer, but at least the ideas were okay. In this book, the beginning of The Return trilogy, is horrendous. Anything that was slightly good about the first 4 is gone, and I'm not sure LJ Smith was thinking when she wrote this. I can't even begin to describe the things I disliked about this book, it was basically everything. Shinichi and Misao? Elena's wings of forgetfulness? What the heck was going on in this book? Elena at the beginning of the book was one of the most annoying characters I've ever read, much worse than her usual annoyingly obsessive self. Caroline and the other girls' subplot is almost interesting, but that is absolutely it. Skimming it to remind myself of the plot is just making me horrified that there is a book out there this bad. Do not pick this up, under any circumstances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantabulous I use to believe that Twilight was a good book until reading the Vampire diaries. I love this book so much that it took me 4 days to read it. I just couldn’t put it down. There was a comment that the book was slow. The person who made that comment is SLOW. I think that all the characters are all so different. It made the evolution of the plot even better. It took me two weeks to read the series and reading them back to back only enhanced my judgment. L.J. Smith is a fantastic writer and I can’t wait for more.
