Stefan's Diaries - Origins

Set during the Civil War, against a backdrop of grand estates, unimaginable riches, and deadly secrets, three teenagers in Mystic Falls, Virginia enter a torrid love triangle that will span eternity.

Brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore are inseparable until they meet Katherine, a stunning, mysterious woman who turns their world upside down. Siblings turned rivals, the Salvatores compete for Katherine's affection, only to discover that her sumptuous silk dresses and glittering gems hide a terrible secret: Katherine is a vampire. And she is intent on turning them into vampires so they can live together-forever.

The Review:

My opinion on this book has not changed since the last time that I reviewed it. I think that it is great that they are writing about the tv show Stefan and Damon - because it shows how it has veered from the original L.J. Smith books. I will also commend these books for providing reading material for the fans of the show - promoting reading among those who are not such keen readers! - and giving us the backgrounds of Stefan and Damon as portrayed by Paul Wesley and the gorgeous Ian Somerhalder.

It is great to see the early relationship between Damon and Stefan and you really dislike Katherine for ruining the good relationship that Damon and Stefan had. You see how selfish Katherine was. It would actually be nice to see an account of this story from the perspective of Emily or even Katherine so that we can get a more rounded idea.
