Book Review: The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Nightfall by L.J. Smith

Summary: Elena Gilbert is alive—again.
When Elena sacrificed herself to save the two vampire brothers who love her—the handsome, brooding Stefan and the sleek and dangerous Damon—she was consigned to a fate beyond death. Until a powerful supernatural force pulled her back.
Now Elena is not just human. She has powers and gifts that were bestowed on her in the afterlife. What's more, her blood pulses with an overwhelming and unique force that makes her irresistible to any vampire.
Stefan wants to find a way to keep Elena safe so that they can make a life together. Damon, however, is driven by an insatiable desire for power, and wants Elena to rule as his princess. When Stefan is lured away from Fell's Church, Damon seizes his chance to convince her that he is the brother she is meant to be with. . . .
But a darkness is infiltrating the town, and Damon, always the hunter, is now the hunted; he becomes the prey of a malevolent creature that can possess him at will, and who desires not just Elena's blood but her death.
My Review: What a freakin' disappointment! If you ever read the first two books of Vampire Diaries, you know their amazing...but what the hell is this? I hate writing bad reviews, but I have to be honest...this book bored me to death. I couldn't wait till it was over and it took me forever to finish. The storyline was weird and it didn't have the same substance as the other books. Blah..I don't recommend it to anyone...
My Rating: 3 out of 5

Hey Sweetie chops! :) That is a great review. I thank you for your honesty - it can be the hardest part of reviewing - that's for sure. But it's also honesty that brings readers back - it's a shame, but not all books are as great as we would hope them to be.

Now, for the other reason I am here -- I've been given an award and I am forwarding it onto you - because I feel you deserve it. You can pick up your award HERE.

Hmmmm I honestly was disappointed with the first 4 books, I can't imagine being disappointed MORE by this one. I think what's most disappointing is that the books SOUND good, the premise and the description, just the story it's self falls short. Thanks for the review, I'm curious what about it made you dislike it more then the first books...
