I read The Vampire Diaries ages ago and watched the television adaptation off and on over the seasons. I was most intrigued about a spin off for Elijah, Klaus, Rebekah and meeting Vivianne. So I did a quick binge of The Originals and detoured to New Orleans. This story did not disappoint. If you aren't familiar with any of the characters, this story does a nice job of catching you up on the characters but you might get a bit lost at certain points. So you have all of the guilty pleasure of the Mikaelson family.

Elijah always had my heart but this features more of Klaus and I found that very interesting as he thinks he finds his true love with Vivianne, a half-witch, werewolf hybrid. As paranormal historical fiction, this is a winner and I really enjoyed the writing style of Plec. You can tell she can set a scene and the dialogue sings. It is a quick read and best suited for teens. Overall, it is a must read for fans of the shows.
