I’m back to book blogging!
So I’ve literally just finished this book
Its the fifth book in the Vampire Diaries series and yeah okay this one was a little complicated….
So here’s the blurb for it
Elena Gilbert returns in a brand new, three part vampire diaries sequence….
She’s alive-but no longer just human!
When Elena’s beloved, Stefan, is lured away from Fell’s Church, Damon seizes his chance to convince her that he is the brother she is meant to be with…
But a darkness is infiltrating the town, and Damon always the hunter, is now the hunted; he becomes prey to a malevolent creature that can possess him at will, and who desires Elena just as much, but for what purposes?
Okay so that sounds good right?
But the story was a bit higgildy piggildy… hahaha (I have no idea if that’s how it spelt!)
At the end of the third book Elena becomes a vampire and then dies. In the fourth she’s dead but comes back on the summer solstice when Bonnie summons her to help them defeat Klaus. Then at the end of the fourth shed granted life again…
Okay confused yet?
At the start of the fifth book she’s a repressed version of herself. She has to learn how to, speak, write, walk etc all over again… and yet she knows how to kiss and the knows to give stefan her blood.
Also she floats alot and she’s come back with this ‘White Power’.
Then she wakes one morning and is Elena again. Her and Stefan are lovey dovey for a while and then
Stefan gets lured away by someone claiming they can make him human (which would be perfect for him)
Enter Damon. At first you don’t know he’s possessed and to be perfectly honest I got a little confused when LJ Smith tried to explain it in the book…
So there are these evil Kitsune who possess Caroline with a Malach and she basically goes on a rampage transferring this Malach to other girls in Fell’s….
Damon is possessed and harms Matt and Elena…
And then they end up in a ‘bubble’ version of there world where Damon tells everything to Elena and there is this magic key that can let you go anywhere in the ‘bubble’ (Confused?)
Then they manage to get out and there are these evil trees (Yes tree’s!) Who try to sacrifice Bonnie. (They have previously tried to kill Matt, Bonnie and Meredith in a car!)
Turns out the tree’s are under the spell of the Kitsune twins Shinichi and Miaso who are also kissing and caressing each other (insest!)
Yeah and Elena can summon wings which helps her save her friends and what not. She cures Damon by using Wings Of Redemption and all that but he goes back to normal Damon after making a deal with Shinichi to free Stefan from where ever he is!!
So that’s it!
There is a good fight scene but other than that the book didn’t really capture me… the first like 20 chapters were a little slow and yet after that they got a little better and towards the last 5 chapters I was hooked!
Technically it should have grabbed me from the first few lines at the beginning and its a shame really because if you haven’t seen the TV show they would be good books but like I’ve said before I’ve been spoiled by the TV show. Although Damon does have his sweet side in this book and out of all the characters on there he’s the only one with real oomph!
And you can so tell Elena wants Damon just as much as Stefan and I got so frustrated in the TV show when they just wouldn’t kiss (although now I’m happy because she chose Damon.. do feel a little sad for Stefan though haha) and that frustration is happening all over again in the book between them too! (Just get it on all ready!!)
Even though I haven’t really given these books great reviews I really do want to finish them because they do hook you in at the end.
I’m going to give them just a small break cos I do have a book that an author has asked me review for her (The Lightbearers by Nora M Garcia) and I have some other books to read.
But I will come back to them. I want to read them. I don’t just want to stop them on book 8 and not know what happened. I hope book six will be better and I’ll pick it up after The Lightbearers…
Until now i’m going to leave you with pictures of the TV show (Again!) Lol
So *DRUM ROLL* here’s the TV version of the three main characters 🙂
But there is something I want to ask you…
Whose better together?
Stefan and Elena?
Damon and Elena
