Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Smith has created a romantic series within the mysterious and intriguing world of vampires. The lead characters are Stefan and Damon. This latest story, set in Manhattan, revolves around Damon's determination never to hurt another human being. Manhattan is a city that never sleeps and it's easy for him to hide among all of the drama surrounding him. Thinking that he has escaped his brother, Damon and the Salvatore brothers unite and come to an agreement and then decide to team up and devour New York. Unfortunately, their escapades about the city put them in a spotlight, drawing more attention than they had planned. As a result, a new enemy seeks revenge of the pair. As the story unravels, Stefan's diaries enlighten readers about the relationships between him, Damon and Katherine. These stories unfold on the popular CW-channel TV show. This is a great series for any vampire fan or romantic. Part of "The Vampire Diaries" series, this is "Stefan's Diaries" volume 3. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard

    Little Confusing

    I love every Vampire Diaries series, but its alot of information to keep straight with the tv show, stefan diaries, and vampire diaries. I think they should have just kept everything true to the original vampire diaries books because there is so much to take in and alot of stuff is changed around. Its still a wonderful series just make sure yu are ready to keep some details straight.

    You must Check this out, I Highly recommend it.

    I recommend this book. It gives you a look into What Stefan is going through as he has now rediscovered his humanity and how Damon has gone out of his way to keep his promise to make Stefan's life miserable for making him a vampire. It also brings a new evil into the picture.

    Worth reading :)!

    First of all, I'm a huge fan of L.J.Smith and The Vampire Diaries show. I don't like Stefan that much but I thought it would be fair enough to hear the story from his point of view =).
    The first two books were great, really enjoyable, the only reason I give this sequel 4 stars because there were some really boring parts in it, in which he would keep reminding us of what happened in the previous volumes, it was really boring. After Damon got into the story, things got better of course.
    Overall, I really enjoyed it, especially at the end, it was worth reading and I would definitely read it again =).

    I recommend this book series, I LOVED IT!!!! :)

    I have read a lot of books over time, but none of them compare to the L.J. Smith books! I just love the Vampire Diaries! I was so excited when I heard that Stefan's Diaries series was coming out. So when the first book was released I jumped at the chance to get it!! Now I'm just waiting patiently for The Craving to be released so that I can read this one!! It's going to be great!!!

    Best Series On The Planet!!!

    I am a freaking huge Vampire Diaries fan. I absolutely love the show and the books!!!! And when I heard that there was a mini Vampire Diaries trilogoy coming out that was based mainly on the life of the Stefan from the show, I was soooooooooo excited!!! So I bought the first 2 books and fell in love with them!!! They made me become an even bogger fan than I already am!!!! I know that the last one is going to be amazing!!!! It would be cool if it mentioned something about Elena wouldn't it? I also really like the fact that the covers have the cast's faces on them. My favorite cover is the one with Paul on it!!!
