Ok So it took me a few days to get back into these books i haven t read them for almost a year it didn t take long however, these booksit s just amazig how completely unique they are I always loved these I love the concept i love the characters i love everything about them , except for one small thing it is sooooooo overly descriptive i usually love that, but i found at one point in the book when she took like about 10 pages to explain something and it went on and on and on i absolutely love these books regardless, and this book wasnt my favorite of the series, but good.So this book was supposed to be the last of the series also, but from the ast chapter, you would think there was going to be another book I m not wanting to give anything away right now, but it that was how these books were supposed to end i was a little bit dissapointed, because something BIG happens Also, for some reason i just love reading about lady ulmas estate It s so FUN so read about how lush and perfect everything is there i love to read about the outfits, and jewelry, and events, and everything.Also, love the idea of damon and bonnie as a couple would that not be amazing it would be ah dorable D good book or matt and meredith D The vampire diaries book amazing. I HONESTLY CANNOT WAITSTEFAN BETTER BE WITH ELENA OR I WILL KILL SOMEONE SERIOUSLYDAMON ELENA stefan and elena are meant to be, why can t anyone see thatI personally think Damon should get with Bonnie, and I think Matt needs a girl I know this book will be 5 stars, I can t wait I m so sad that this is the final chapter of Stefan Elena s life, I m depressed now The Devil You KnowWith The Help Of Charming And Devious Damon, Elena Rescued Her Vampire Love, Stefan, From The Depths Of The Dark Dimension But Neither Brother Returned UnscathedStefan Is Weak From His Long Imprisonment And Needs Blood Than Elena Alone Can Give Him, While A Strange Magic Has Turned Damon Into A Human Savage And Desperate, Damon Will Do Anything To Become A Vampire Again, Even Travel Back To Hell But What Will Happen When He Accidentally Takes Bonnie With Him Stefan And Elena Hurry To Rescue Their Innocent Friend From The Dark Dimension, Leaving Matt And Meredith To Save Their Hometown From The Dangerous Spirits That Have Taken Hold Of Fell S Church One By One, Children Are Succumbing To Demonic Designs But Matt And Meredith Soon Discover That The Source Of The Evil Is Darker And Closer Than They Ever Could Have Imagined I think I hate all the characters in this book and I ve no idea why I even bought it and read it I don t even care that it ended on a giant cliffhanger, I will not read the next pile of shit trilogy to find out what happens I m sick of L.J Smith s shit.Spoilers galore in this review, because honestly, spoilers can t ruin this book for anyone, the book ruins itself.The POV swings in this book were utterly confusing and tiring, the plot was a pile of shit and the descriptions were fucking stupid You could really tell L.J loved the posh Dark Dimension shit because there was tons of description on Lady Ulma s mansion and the Celestial Court building, and a ridiculous amount of description on the barren wastelands that they travelled across, and she generally used ridiculous language that you never hear anyone use, let alone a 18 year old who doesn t seem all that smart, for all her perfect ness It was just tiring reading this book Truly tiring.Let s see why I hate all the characters Elena is an indecisive bitch who is perfect in every way, so much so that she is allowed to have two love interests and it s perfectly okay.The love square is truly ridiculous Stefan loves Elena, Elena loves Stefan and Damon, Damon loves Elena and Bonnie and Bonnie loves Damon Why not just have it going all the way around and have Bonnie and Stefan fall in love Then there could be foursomes every other weekend More seriously though, Elena gets hugely pissed off with Stefan for acting all, you know, JEALOUS and uncool stuff like that over her and Damon, yet when she notices Damon and Bonnie being flirty HELL HATH NO FURY Elena Gilbert, number one hypocrite, but it s okay because Elena is perfect in every way and has pretty hair Also, did I mention Elena killed her parents But that s okay because she s perfect and pretty and that.The fact that in the end they wave a magical wand and EVERYTHING FROM THE LAST 7 BOOKS HAS NOT HAPPENED is just great Why the fuck did I read any of these books then Except, of course, now Damon is dead Except, of course, the cliffhanger is that he isn t Oh, and Elena is probably going to be immortal because she has some magic water in an Evian bottle PRODUCT PLACEMENT Anyway, she ll probably drink that and live forever and apparently there s enough for maybe 4 or 5 people if I remember correctly, so that s Bonnie, Meredith, Matt and Mrs Flowers YAY, THIS SCOOBY DOO GANG CAN GO ON FOREVER, YAY Oh god, I can t imagine a world where that group of pricks exist for all of time and are indestructible Fuck.Bonnie Bonniebonniebonnie I fucking hate Bonnie She s terrified of everything, and everyone has to factor in Bonnie s reaction to stuff before they do anything and it s fucking absurd when lives are at stake or whatever Also, her jumping into that hole after Damon and then complaining when he left her somewhere safe was so mindblowingly stupid that I realised nothing could make me hate her because surely that should have made me explode with rage, but it didn t because I was past that point.Meredith Apparently Meredith has known she is a hunter slayer term only invented in this, the 7th book of the series all her life and it has influenced none of her actions for the past 6 books when there were vampires EVERYWHERE, most of them doing evil shit like killing her best friend, destroying her town, going on a mass murdering spree Also, apparently Meredith is part vampire She has kitten teeth And she has a twin brother who is a vampire and can age and that This so does not fuck with her story in the previous books So doesn t at all Also, another cliffhanger, Meredith declaring she has to find and kill her brother I DON T CARE I M NOT GOING TO BUY YOUR NEW TRILOGY.Stefan is a dick Stefan basically doesn t care about anything in the entire world except Elena despite having lived for like, 500 years or something with no Elena in his life His character in general is completely boring and it s actually impossible to imagine him without Elena giving him purpose , if you can call it that when he s basically only living as a romantic interest to someone who is in love with someone else as well as him He s a completely useless character.Damon What the fuck was the point in him becoming a human in the last book There was no point Also, his dying went on for far too long with that inner child and Elena shit, but that s really of a complaint about Elena, so Damon is possibly the only redeeming feature of this book because he s the only one with a vaguely interesting personality, but even he acts thinks like a twat sometimes It s probably L.J.Smithicitus.Shinichi died by saying something He s been the big evil bad guy for the past 2 books, and he dies just by saying I wish I didn t do this after absorbing his sister Fucking brilliant Ooh, he s so scary he can be killed with fucking regrets Great.Small aside I didn t understand Sage What was his purpose Who was his father Do I actually even care No, not really He was only introduced in the last book, you can t really use him as another cliffhanger for me to buy your shitty new trilogy centring around this dickwad set of characters.Another aside The wolf shit was fucking stupid A pack of wolves just completely accepting a DOG as their new alpha male without so much as a fight Realistic Also, someone pregnant with werewolf babies is now going to be a werewolf for the rest of their life What Why But don t the babies produced have to kill to trigger the werewolf gene Huh Anyway, all in all, I m glad this pile of shit trilogy is over and if I talk myself into buying the next book when it comes out somewhere along the line out of some OCD annoyance at not having read the full thing or something then you may punch me repeatedly in the face. I really, really, really, really, really can t wait for this book to come out Midnight s release date has been changed at least 6 times and I just want to read it I hope Elena s going to end up with Damon She really does belong with Damon and not Stefan If Damon doesn t change back into a vampire and Elena chooses Stefan in the end, I swear I ll cry harder than I ve ever cried in my life. Before Reading Okay, I know Elena isn t going to end up with Damon.but I want her to so bad This is what I think will happen Elena will turn into a vampire again and stay with Stefan and Bonnie is going to end up with Damon Yuck.How do I want it to happen Stefan will somehow trade with Damon and he will become human while Damon is transformed back into a vampire while fighting Stefan will make some huge sacrifice and die for Elena or Damon Bonnie will end up with Matt and Elena and Damon will finally be free to love eachother THE END.But it wont happen that way, L.J has already set the stage for Damon and has made him grow fond of Bonnie calling her his little bird it an earlyer book and now she s even got him human for BonnieGAH I don t want they to be together they aren t right for eachother pout all I can do is wait and find out, holding onto my tiny shred of hope for Elena and Damon After Reading SPEECHLESS OH MY GOD I can t wait for the next book to come out I still want Elena to be with Damon and now they have of a chance I will SHOOT someone if Bonnie gets Damon, she is SO NOT WORTH HIM She is such a oh i m helpless and always sweet and forgiving..LOVE ME Blech I bawled at the end and kept saying Damon Damon Damon Over and over He should get Elena, he NEEDS her Bonnie, well, she just needs to die She never will be good enough for Damon EVER The whole book I was either really pissed at L.J because Damon was being sweet to Bonnie or really excited and happy because he was showing his interest and love for Elena It was always up and down, up and down Elena bonnie, Elena Bonnie I can tell you right now I will be thinking about this book non stop for about a week I really don t think I can wait for the next one to be published How could she do this to me I waited for this book for a year, and it left me than dissapointed The book before this one was one of the best, so I don t know how LJ Smith could go wrong with this one I just have oh so many problems with this book Let s start with the first ELENA Elena has been with Stefan, who loves her for everything she is, since the first book But in this book, she has become like Katherine than herself She WHINES about loving both brothers Yes, Damon is witty, and he is the bad boy who is reformed for only her, but that s about as far as it goes I would see him as of an ally than a love interest Stefan s world IS Elena, and they can even link souls I don t see where the confusion is Earlier in the series, when Elena was whisked away to Heaven or wherever she may have been , Stefan was on his knees screaming for her It s the one scene I ll never forget Damon surely was not doing that So please explain to me this hang up Also, in the last two books, Damon makes two references to Elena being a virgin, which, you know he can t wait to change At the end of this book Elena says Stefan will love her chastely This bothered me, because both she and Stefan alluded to wanting to be physical together in this book, but Elena told Stefan she was scared, therefore, he chose to wait for her to be ready Again, why the sudden allegiance to Damon In this book, Damon is dying, and Elena is kissing him in front of Stefan I just think that s tacky The book ends with Stefan thinking Elena loves Damon and not him Can we say heartbreaking I don t understand AT ALL the allure of Damon There is supposed to be another Trilogy coming, but LJ Smith is not supposed to be writing it Maybe that s a good thing, because I m about done with her Here s my second problem with the book The TV Series I ve been reading the book series since WAY BEFORE the TV Series came to be, but I do like the TV Series Here s my problem The characters in the books and in the series are two different sets of people Damon is mostly the same In the book series, Alaric is a college student Bonnie is a white with red hair Caroline is white with red hair and also a wolf, not a vampire Stefan and Elena are not as strong willed as their counterparts on the TV Show I find myself liking the Stefan and Elena on the TV Show, than the ones in the book I can t imagine the Elena on the TV Show saying some of the things Elena says in the books Darling And I can t imagine the Stefan from the TV show saying some of the things the Stefan in the book says lovely love While Stefan and Elena definitely have their strong moments in the book, they aren t as much as on the TV Show Those are my gripes with this book It makes me downright angry that I waited a year for this dissapointment. basically if you re too lazy to read this longggg letter, let me sum it up for you L.J Smith has been fired from writing her own books because the owners wanted Stelena, but she wanted Delena.Here s an email my not MY like ME Dana, but oh never mind friend received from L.J Smith Hi Emily Thank you for your beautiful email I completely understand why some fans get overeager and especially if they think there is bad news for them I hope that you will enjoy Midnight, as it is truly the story of Damon finding his deepest feelings for both Elena and Bonnie and his feelings are definitely not platonic In fact, to be blunt, without Bonnie and something that Bonnie does at the end, Damon would be permanently dead.But right now I have to tell you something that makes me so sad and devastated as bad, in fact, as I have ever felt except for when my mother died It s confidential, but it s been so long now that I just can t keep up a charade with good hearted readers like you.To put it briefly, I ve been fired from writing the Vampire Diaries And I ve been fighting and fighting this since last fall, but there is absolutely no recourse Midnight is the last L J Smith book in the Vampire Diaries series.It probably sounds completely impossible to say that I am fired from writing my own books But the truth is that they re not mine, even though I write every word When I was called by an agent and asked to write the vampire trilogy, that agent wasn t from a publisher, but from what is now Alloy Entertainment, Ltd And they are a book packager A book packager sells books, already made with covers and all, to publishers, like HarperCollins my publisher for The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle And both these series were written for hire which means that the book packager owns the books the author produces Although I didn t even understand what for hire meant back in 1990, when I agreed to write books for them, I found out eventually, to my horror and dismay It means that even though I have written the entire series, I don t own anything about The Vampire Diaries And from now on, the books will be written by an anonymous ghostwriter, just as Stefan s Diaries are It will say Created by L J Smith on the cover, but I am not allowed even to change a word in the ghostwriter s book.You might wonder why the book packager and Harper would do this to me I am not sure either, but usually a book packager gets very submissive, non assertive writers to write for them not to mention that most of them, writers or ghostwriters, have had a lot of publishers turn their books down Book packagers are used to do a lot of editing on their author s books because the books need intense editing.But I m not submissive, and I always fight editing In Midnight, I had to fight to keep many Bonnie scenes in the book I m not at all sure they liked the things I was doing with Bonnie and Damon they kept trying to cut such scenes And of course they didn t like Elena s behavior at all They want strictly Stelena books.So last fall when I gave them the book Phantom, they didn t bother to give me edits Instead, I was given a letter addressed to the ghostwriter by name, telling her to completely rewrite my book They wouldn t even listen when I pleaded and promised to do Phantom as they required The simply took the series and gave it to the ghostwriter to write not only The Hunters trilogy, but whatever comes after that.They have always tried to minimize my participation in The Vampire Diaries On the very first original books in 1990 my name was almost invisible on the cover And now they have my manuscript of Phantom, and the book the ghostwriter writes from it may even sound like I wrote it in places, because they have the right to use my work as they see fit But the book after that that will be pure ghostwriter I would guess that they think you readers won t see or care about the difference in writing styles and skills.I have said this to another Bamon fan, and I ll say it now I had so many plans for Bonnie in The Hunters trilogy.First of all, in Phantom, I had her showing a lot emotion, grieving right along side Elena because well, because Damon does something almost unbelievable for Bonnie in Midnight and he doesn t get out unscathed.I won t spoil it if you don t know But they wanted Bonnie to have just put it all behind her and with Bonnie s character, I don t think so She is always completely openhearted with her emotions even though she has matured so much in Midnight, she s still Bonnie, who says exactly what she thinks, even if she hasn t had a dose of Black Magic wine.I wanted to write Moonsong, and give Bonnie an admirer who is just as sweet and even na ve than she is a pure white wolf with radiant blue eyes, who happens to be a werewolf with moonlight colored hair and the same blue eyes when he s human I wanted to show Damon s surprising reaction to Xander the good werewolf not at all happy about it so much that he accidentally almost kills the poor innocent wolf.I also wanted to show how Damon rescues Bonnie from a vicious wolf pack attack, and then let her fly away with him And I wanted to show how Bonnie, who knows a little medicine from her sister Mary, helps Damon deliver Caroline s twin babies when she goes into labor deep in the woods But that s one scene that I would have had to fight tooth and nail for, because even the glow that Damon and Bonnie share at seeing new life come into the world wouldn t be enough for them to call it decent They would undoubtedly have tried to make me cut it But I still want to write it, so badly.I even had the last book in that trilogy plotted out, where Stefan s worst nightmare comes true and he takes so much blood from Elena that has to be taken to the hospital for a massive transfusion He then decides to Influence Elena so hat she will forget his existence, and he does so, to Damon and Bonnie and Meredith s consternation I wanted to show how this affected each one of the characters, and how Bonnie once again begins to write in her diary, since Elena s diary is also forgotten, along with Stefan I like to write things from Bonnie s point of view, as I did in Dark Reunion But none of these things will happen, beause I won t be around to write it And I just can t keep up the pretense any long with wonderful fans like you I can t pretend that Bonnie and Damon s relationship will continue to grow as Damon learns to respect her as well as to love her She has become his girl but I can t follow up on that I had to tell the ghostwriter that he would address Bonnie as little redbird when he speaks to her.Sorry for the long rant, but the charade is over for me I don t know how Phantom will turn out, with a blend of my manuscript and the complete rewriting of it by the ghostwriter But I dread it, and even do I dread what the next books will be like I ve worked so hard to make Vampire Diaries a good series, only to have the unthinkable happen to me And I have no one but myself to blame for not being submissive enough.LisaL J Smith I can not wait to read this one Personally I hope it s better then the other two new ones I m personally rooting for the Damon Elena relationship because for one thing, they were a match made in heaven And for another, it s like forbidden love which makes it all the interesting I ve never liked Bonnie, but have always loved Damon and personally think they would make a horrible couple Bonnie and Matt have sparks I will seriously cry my eyes out if Damon and Bonnie end up together At the same time, Stefan would probably kill himself if Elena chooses Damon I say whatever though because Stefan has no sense of humor Unlike Damon who has tons and his little lovey love thing makes me gag He can have Meredith though because I d still hate to see Stefan die Also, if Damon stays human I m going to be mad Stefan should turn human, Damon should turn back into a vampire, and Elena should be a vampire so she could go live with Damon Not Bonnie though She can run off to college with Matt. Oh, by the way, this is a LONG review And i gave it four stars because everything is riding on this book for me, and if it doesn t fit the bill I so desperately hope it does, bad things will happen in my mind Hmm I absolutely adore these two series, and I say two series because, well, it in truth has to be two series In the first four books, Elena meets Stefan and Damon, falls for Stefan, becomes a vampire, dies whilest being a vampire, and is a ghost in the fourth book Then she s brought back to life somehow, still not quite sure how, at the end of the fourth book Okay Happy ending right there Then three books come out, clearly stating in their titles THE RETURN Why am I saying this Because, let s face it, everything is different for Elena now, and Stefan practically becomes a non entity while Damon steals the show And, you know what, I m happy in a way, because Stefan never really did it for me in the first four books, and I will put the Vampire DIaries in my Never Read Again Nor Recommend To Anyone Because the Ending was Plain Torture book series list, along with the Hunger Games series and maybe the Immortals series, if Elena does not end up with Damon In the first four books, fine, Damon wasn t just the bad boy, he wasn t even a consideration for Elena because of his You re mine attitude towards her That, I feel, was the only thing to hang on to in the first four books, as the relationship between Stefan and Elena was never fully developed and has rather been annoying for the entire series, both of them in fact In the Vampire Diaries published in the 1990s, Elena needed to love and be loved by someone who could show her the gentleness and beauty in the world Now, in the 2000s, Elena needs to show this to Damon, and, in a way, has already But when she gets Stefan back at the end of the sixth book, Stefan and Elena s emotional connection are, I feel, not only lacking, but inadequate You, even if you like the Stelena duo, don t feel the fire in their relationship any, as the Delena relationship now has that flare So my point is DAMON AND ELENA are the ones who belong together now, not Stefan and Elena or Damon and Bonnie Bonnie s character, I don t know, has never really interested me She reminds me of a faithful little chihuahua, not a potential love interest This is what I hope will happen yeah, Damon and Elena make the couple that should be made and yeah, umm, don t they kiss in the sixth book A lot Show deep feelings for each other that make you so freaking giddy you have to stop reading and squeal, even if three lines down the page they get into an argument Ummm, Alaric and Meredith eh I honestly don t care what happens to them Their relationship is kind of uninteresting Bonnie and Matt, sure, okay, have them end up together Not for any deep, emotional, I love you so much and I can never be without you way, but just because they both need a shoulder to cry on, I think Oh, Damon should become a vampire again, Elena maybe going to become a vampire, like, hint at it and not actually write it in , and Stefan I feel nuetral towards He wants to be human, well, okey dokey then He wants to stay a vampire to always and forever protect ELena, even though she isn t in love with him any Super I know Stefan is supposed to be a major character, but I lack all feeling towards him, and have lacked said feeling since the beginning of the Elena Stefan Damon story This being said, if Elena ends up with Stefan, or Bonnie with Damon blech , I will stare at the walls and mope for hours, maybe even days, because that feeling that you ve lost someone dear to you I d feel that in abundance And oh, I read the book synopsis on , and I have to say that I think it hints that Bonnie and Damon are going to end up together Ver, very sad.
