** spoiler alert ** I am appalled that this is a TV series. I can think of countless other books that would have been a much better choice. The only thing that this has going for it is Hollywood’s penchant for taking a script and twisting it into something that isn’t even close to what it was. Since I haven’t watched the show, I can only hope that this is was happened here because the books are PITIFUL. In the Fury, Elena wakes up as a vampire and tells the feuding brothers that there was some other dark force that killed her. They band together to discover what it was and find out that it was Katherine (who had faked her own death). Katherine captures Elena, Stefan and Damon with plans to kill them. Elena manages to thwart her plans and kills Katherine, but dies herself. (Yay, I thought. No more Elena means no more books right? Wrong.) In Dark Reunion, Elena’s friends are receiving messages from her spirit. (Sigh.) They summon Stefan to help them fight some new evil and Damon tags along as well. Enter werewolves. What kind of vampire series would this be without werewolves? (I’d like to see someone TRY to write about vampires without bringing werewolves into it at some point.) The new evil ends up being the vampire who made Katherine a vampire, so he’s extra old and powerful. The stage is set for a final battle and everyone involved is mortally wounded. Luckily, weird spirit Elena heals everyone; summons an undead army and then COMES BACK TO LIFE. Son of a…
I won’t be reading any more of this preposterous series.

Aylin What is wrong with you???????? How dare you disgrace a beautiful book such as the Vampire Diaries, I mean, if you ain't got anything good to say than don't say anything, jeez! *People these days*.
