My Take:When Stefan Salvatore's first love turned him into a vampire, his world—and his soul—were destroyed. Now he and his brother, Damon, must flee their hometown, where they risk being discovered . . . and killed.
The brothers head to New Orleans, looking for safe haven. But the city is more dangerous than they ever imagined, full of other vampires—and vampire hunters. Will Stefan's eternal life be forever damned?
Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan's Diaries reveals the truth about what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine—and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began.
While reading I referenced a lot of the show and pinpointed where the show was taking it and where the book was following the back story. It definitely different from he show in the sense that you get more of the bad Stefan and at the same time you get that he is realizing what he did and why he did those bad things. His brother is now hell bent on destroying him and you get the sense that he is now realizing that Stefan is to blame for why his feelings have magnified. It was cool because you get the bad Stefan and of course the Stefan you want to see the good Stefan. New town, new life basically here Stefan and Damon go there separate ways while everything is basically for the taking Stefan doesn't really care who he gets first as long as its warm. What's cool is that Lexie comes into the picture and you see a different side of her than the show has done for her character. She gives Stefan good advice and I loved that she basically told him that he is lucky to be living and still have his human emotions. Damon is very like himself or season 1 and he just wants Stefan to suffer and to quote him, "Forever is a long time brother." With the third one out already and of course the 3rd season out in the fall I wonder what other troubles Stefan can come across. Oh Damon how you make me smile whenever I hear your wisecracks.
