I have to say that this book is marginally better than the first, but the difference is pretty slight. Elena has shifted her obsession about herself to an obsession toward Stefan, which is probably even less healthy. Plus Damon just isn't the Damon from the television show; I miss his snarkiness and the easy banter he can do. I don't feel like writing much about this book, but let me just reiterate - the television show is SO MUCH BETTER than the book series. ( )

i loved it not because its about vampires but because its quite descriptive an makes you feel like you're a part of the story yourself an you feel what they feel an imagine what they see ( )

This author has a gift when it comes to cliffhanger endings, that is for sure. This is the second installment in the series and the second cliffhanger.

As an observation, this is not a series of books that can be read out of order. Having not read them in order would leave a reader confused and missing too many pieces of the puzzle.

The mystery that is Damon just grows more and more as this story progresses. He has yet to display a single redeeming quality and so far I just really do not like him.

I am amazed at the differences in the abilities that the vampires have when comparing the book to the television show. The crow thing just gives me chills and almost makes me shiver every time I see a black bird.

There are a few editing mishaps one would not expect in a traditionally published book, but not so many as to make it unreadable.

Overall, this is another quick read and a page-turner. I cannot wait to see what is next for these characters. ( )
