I hate Elena but I love Nina Dobrev and Katherine, which means, when I look at this cover, I say to myself that this is Katherine and not Elena, or else I’ll dislike the cover. Just a point of view. Anyways, I love all TVD: Stefan’s Diaries’ covers, for some reason, I’m a huge fan of The Vampire Diaries font style *____*.
I got used to L. J.’s writing style. When reading her books, I embrace myself for a very slow paced beginning, a somehow intriguing middle and a very captivating end. I wish she would change that, but, well, I still love her books!
(p.s: I haven’t read neither The Vampire Diaries nor her new trilogy, The Hunters, books. I’ve heard mostly negative things about them but I’m going to read it anyway because I need to have my own opinion and I also need to read where my favorite TV show came from Smile).
What I loved:
The title perfectly fits the story!
The Prologue and the Epilogue are very good. One of the best things about L. J.’s writing style.
The non-stop fighting between Damon and Stefan is crazy good. I can see why they act like that now in 2012. They’ve been thru a lot.
Cora, the female protagonist, is amazing. I loved everything about her.
I liked how every now and then, we get to have a glimpse of Katherine. I really like her character because she’s unique and mysterious.
The ending was breathtaking, as usual, and now I’m going to start the sequel immediately!
What I disliked:
If there was one thing I would change about the book (all of the books in the series actually), it would be the pacing at first. It always gets boring that I wish I could stop reading it all at once. What keeps me reading is knowing that the best is yet to come.
Stefan is sweet and nice but too naïve. I used to dislike him before reading his Diaries, but now, I actually respect him. He’s been trying his best at everything but for some reason, he always fails miserably :s.
Damon is the impulsive, seductive and arrogant brother. Sometimes he gets on my nerves, the other times he’s just bad charming. Just imagine Ian Somerhalder reading his sentences and acting him and you’ll know what I mean Winking smile.
Cora is Violet’s sister from the previous book, The Ripper. She is very courageous and amazingly understanding. She kept the Salvatore brothers united and organized. A good friend to them.
Samuel is definitely Klaus <3. I don’t hate him at all, in fact, I’m liking him even more. He’s rich, mysterious, very well positioned, a blond vampire and Katherine’s running from him… Does that remind you of anything?! Yep! I’m like 75% sure he’s Klaus.
Henry is Samuel’s younger brother. He’s impulsive and dead at the end of the book, which sparks the anger of Samuel. But it makes me wonder, if Samuel is Klaus, then who is Henry? Could he be the mysteriously dead younger brother?
Violet was human at first, but now she’s a hungry and immoral vampire. She was turned by Samuel and he keeps her around like a pet and she likes it.
James is a new character introduced in this book. He sells witchy stuff to anyone who pays. He helps Damon, Stefan and Cora thru the story and has a very good since of logic.
This is definitely a favorite book of mine. It has action, friendship, family, horror and vampires!
If you love the TV show, I really do recommend this one, but you’ll have to start with the first book, Origins, first or you’ll be in the unknown in this one Smile.

Who calls you the gore master? The kidnergarters because you said "weiner"? Yeah, i thought so. Take that into consideration, you cocky, proud dumb<_>ass!
