This book was NOT written to go with the storyline of L.J. Smith's books. This is a prequel to the SERIES on the CW written by the authors of the SHOW... You feel silly now don'tcha? Excellent one at that too. Katherine is the ultimate villain but in the book you may find yourself seeing her in an unexpected light. It really fleshes out some of the things I was confused about in the flashbacks in the series. A wonderful companion to the TV show for any die hard TVD fan. Expertly written and very well done.

This book was great, love Damon. But I was disapointed it did not follow the books, but the tv show. I was hopping to hear of Stephans view of the books more.

I am a huge fan of the show, so I enjoy learning more details about Katherine and Stefan's past relationship. The flashbacks are always my favorite, so it was nice to read a more detailed story about how the main characters got to where they are today. It stays true to the tv series, and it clarified a lot of questions for me. It gave me a new take on the tragic love triangle between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine. If you love the show, this book is worth reading!
