Both of them together, but more specifically, Dark Reunion. Its just a coincidence Elena isnt in that one. Its not because she is gone that I like it. I like Elena, but Dark Reunion is the most intense so far. It has the most going on and it is very exciting. Meeting the original Klaus. I tried to picture Joseph Morgan, but it was difficult. This Klaus is very different from the Klaus I am used to. But both are crazy and evil, and that is essential. :P
But these books are not developed as much as they could be. They dont really explain a lot, including character motives. There were several things that ppl did and I dont know why, which is kinda bugging me. And then at the end, wtf happened? I'm not complaining, but it was kind of a big deal and they didnt explain how it happened at all. ...more
I liked this one as much as the first. It was really good with lots more Damon. Getting to know him more as a character rather than just a large crow.I liked this one as much as the first. It was really good with lots more Damon. Getting to know him more as a character rather than just a large crow. It went by very fast though. The story wasnt very complex at all. It felt like something that could have been covered in one episode of the show. But I cant wait to find out what happens next. The ending is sure to lead to an interesting turn of events in the next book, even though it seemed too convenient. Just a way to continue the drama. But continue the drama it will, so why should I complain? :P...more

This was so much better than I expected it to be! I read it in one sitting! I love the TV show but this rivals it. Stefan is so much cooler than in the show. I wasnt a huge Stefan fan, but in the book he is just as awesomely romantic and smoldering as so many other YA vampires.
Of the 3 leads, the only one who I pictured as the actor from the show is Damon. Ian Somerhalder sounds like a perfect description of Damon, except way older. Elena actually referred to Damon as a boy more than once, whereas Ian Somerhalder is clearly not a boy. But still, I didnt really picture Paul Wesley as Stefan, and definitely didnt picture Nina Dobrev as Elena.
Her character is also very different. The Elena here starts out very snobby and high and mighty, but that changes in time. It makes sense that Stefan would bring out the best in her. Although, I dont really get why Stefan would fall in love with her in the first place, the way she was in the beginning. It also happened way too quickly. After two conversations Elena tells him she loves him. Pretty ridiculous really, but besides that its great. The romance between Stefan and Elena is awesome, and the added creepiness of Damon stalking her is perfect. Cant wait to find out what happens next!...more
