The past is never far. . . .
Elena Gilbert and her friends saved Fell’s Church from evil spirits bent on destroying it, but the town’s freedom came at a price: Damon Salvatore’s life.
Damon’s death changes everything. He and his vampire brother, Stefan, had been locked in a vicious battle for Elena’s heart. Now that he’s gone, Elena and Stefan can finally be together. So wh...more
Because it was not written by L.J. Smith. I don't think a lot of people realize what this means -- after all, if the writing's good, why not like the story?
As a writer myself, I would be horrified -- as in Saw victims horrified -- if I was fired from my own books. Not only that, but if someone else wrote my characters in my place. It would infuriate me beyond belief.
All this said, I will not be reading this. I am very disap ...more
Thanks, and reply, if you agree. :)
BECAUSE MY FAVORITE AUTHOR L. J SMITH DID NOT WRITE THIS BOOK.
Whoever the low-life GHOSTWRITER is who wrote this should be ashamed of themselves. You will never ever live up to L.J Smith's expertise. It's sad to know your only reason for writing is to get money, and that because of you the rightful author of this book can no longer continue with this ser ...more
...."the gang goes to college"....
What is this? 90210?
I want to like this. Every single book I want to like it, but the thing is, I despise Elena. And I can't support Damon or Stephan, because she flat out says "I love both of you" and they're just like oh ok whatever.
I'm sorry, but that's not ok. If I were in that situation I'd be like pick one of us, stop leading the other on, and if you can't then we'll both move on.
No girl is THAT great. Not even Elena Gilb ...more
Here’s an email my friend received from L.J. Smith.
Thank you for your beautiful email. I completely understand why some fans get overeager—and especially if they think there is bad news for them. I hope that you will enjoy Midnight, as it is truly the story of Damon finding his deepest feelings for both Elena and Bonnie—and his feelings are definitely not platonic. In fact, to be blunt, without Bonnie and something that Bonnie does at the en ...more
Maybe, just MAYBE, the writers of the TV show will be nice and ...more
11/6/11: So I almost didn't read this book because of the rumors surrounding the author & book-series-rights. She was supposedly ...more
I... enjoyed Smith's Vampire Diaries books. After the first four ended, I thought come on. Are you serious?This is where the story is going to end?. Then, with the Return series, I kind of giggled a bit because... the story could continue. But you know... seven books (ten, actually, I think, with the Stefan's diaries thing) is... enough. Or it would have been, but there was a cliffhanger at the end o ...more
That being said I just can't leave it the way it was and be okay with that, I will be reading this, and I will be loving every second of it.
Side notes: I hope Elena dies, I'm tired of that slut. lol. Damo ...more
Though this book is marked as read, I have not read it and do not plan to- I will only read the books that L.J. Smith actually wrote. I have not read any of "The Vampire Diaries" book, but am a big fan of the show (which i probably should not be since one of the companies that creates the show helped fi ...more
And then Damon reappearing seemed to easy. We got him crawling out of the hole, walking towards the gate, being saved by Sage, and the ...more
I'll keep this short. Vampire Diaries ended with book 7. End of. Elena with no powers + Damon dead = SERIES OVER. And this isn't even written by LJ. Yes, I will be reading this, but only to justify the one star it's going to ...more
Finding out that there is going to be another VD book finds me with mixed feelings. On the one hand I always wanted a Delena end and I hoped that this book would maybe, just maybe, provide it. And well, I didn't like Damon dying and I knew that of there was another book, he would seriously resurface.
On the other hand, ghostwritting is just brutal.At the beginning I had no idea such ...more
I'll end up reading this anyway... Even though Elena has started to irritate me, how much more can the poor girl go through.
I finished the last trilogy mostly out of loyalty to the favorite author of my junior high years, but it was not good. This one's a small step back i ...more
Can I give this at least a half a star? The only reason I gave it one star is because it's the Vampire Diaries, my 2nd favorite series in the world. I haven't finished reading it yet, but from the portion I've even READ, it S-U-C-K-S. And not the good, Vampire-Diaries kind. It doesn't even deserve 1 star, because A) LJ Smith didn't write it, and she's the most AMAZING vampire author EVER, and you can't just pick up where she left off ...more
