The Reunion: Elena summons the vampire trio once more to unite and challenge their fate. Together they will be called to face the most terrifying evil Fell's Church has ever known.
I started reading the second bind-up of Vampire Diaries as soon as I finished the first one. I couldn't stop reading. Especially when The Struggle ends with Elena's death - theoretically. Because she actually transforms into a vampire. She was almost drown, and she kinda died, but she had enough of Stefan's blood in her veins to help her stay... un-dead. And.. whoa! She thinks Damon is her boyfriend. I still dunno why. Well, yeah, she finally remembered after about 4 chapters, but still... Anyway, it was a great story. The Fury means Elena's life as a vampire, trying to kill Katherine but, in the end, doing the most unselfish thing anyone could do, as Bonnie describes it at the end of book 3... she risks her life and slowly dies, transforming into ashes, but not before making Stefan and Damon promise they'll take care of each other.. Awww, how cute isn't it? And, finally, The Reunion is the part where Stefan, Damon, Bonnie, Meredith and Matt ally together to confront Klaus, an Old One (like original vamp, who never dies) and bring Elena back - yay! The Reunion is maybe the most thrilling book in the Vampire Diaries series (not talking about The Vampire Diaries: The Return series). When I finished this bind-up (after another week), I couldn't wait for The Return series - And now, as an introductory part, The Return series is awesome!
And, now really, what are you waiting for? Go. Read. It. At. Once! :)
So, I give this book 5/5 stars too, because it kept me breathless for 2 good weeks. Again, congratulations to L.J. Smith for her vampire story - the original one!
