Genre: Fantasy, Drama
After his brother, Damon Salvatore, betrays him in New Orleans, Stefan starts over in Manhattan. Vowing never to harm another human, he roams the streets, trying to idsappear into the city's chaos. But just when he thinks he's left his past behind, Stefan discovers that he can never escape his brother.
Damon has grand plans for the vampire Salvatore brothers-whether Stefan likes it or not. Together, they take New York by the storm. When their exploits end up on the society pages, an old enemy resurfaces-one hell-bent on revenge.
In the show I absolutely love the flashback scenes but I'm not a big fan of Stefan's diaries. At most, I'd say that I like the first book the best even though it didn't live up to my expectations.
I can however say that this book did have quite a few exciting things going on but it was nothing special. Just the usual 'Damon-Salvatore-Master-Plan' and the 'What-Do-I-Do-Know?-Stefan'.
I really wish Damon would get over his and Stefan's issue and move on but of course that's not going to happen for another century or so.
Anyway it was a nice book but it sometimes felt like a drag to read this.
Likes: Stefan, Damon.
*I'm wondering why Nina Dobrev is on the cover because neither of her characters are in this book.
