I listened to the audiobook for the last half, which was nice, definitely made me push through it quicker.
I'm glad the storyline is completely different than what I know now, but I'm not sure I'm gonna continue, thinking where it's going with it.
Rating: 1/5 stars

Book: "The Fury"
# In Series: 3
Continuing directly from "The Struggle" Elena finds herself being drawn to the brothers during their fight. She starts to notice changes in her bodies perceptions such as not feeling the cold from the storm, and a nocturnal sense of vision being able to focus in the dark. She could sense their anger and hostility. She felt drawn in, drawn by him to help and protect him.
The first chapter is intense. You feel the pull from the story and ...more
I'd forgotten how these books went and it didn't help that the TV show was very different to the books. I am glad I had read the books before the show and I think I will always think of the books and the show as separate stories; I enjoyed both of them in their own way.
I think I liked the Fury more than I liked Dark Reunion, because Elena was such a Mary Sue in the forth book I almost wanted to cry. (view spoiler)[ The woman was -dead- during almost the entire forth book and she still saves everyone. And then get back to life to be with her friends and the man she loved the most. So realistic (hide spoiler)].
In the Fury, Elena changes after some sort of dark force kills her. ...more
“Stay away from my little brother.”
With that said The Fury and Dark Reunion are no exception. Fans of the television series should look at this origin material (and that in The Awakening and The Struggle) as another adventure or a parallel universe. The plot is meticulously unveiled for the reader and the writing style is so contemporary and refreshing that I find ...more
As with the first two what I loved about the books is that there are things which are hinted at in the show but never really crop up. Getting to r ...more
In the 3rd book "The Fury", Elena died, came back as a vampire, and had all the narcissistic plots evolved around her... In the end, she died again. In the 4th book “The Dark Reunion”, the gang, sans Elena, battled the evil force. This time, the focus was on Stefan. The similar villainous plots ensued and the gang was losing to Klaus (the Original). Then, lo and behold, Elena the spirit materialized with the unqui ...more
Gah! My damned OCD will probably push me to complete the series. I hope the next book will redeem this series just so that I feel better about myself for wasting precious time reading these ridiculous books.
I'm a glutton for punishment.
