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.
This was great in the sense you the reader was able to find out what happened back than and how Damon acted and how the two brother had a very different relationship than the one we are used too. Being inside his head for a change felt real like I was reading an actual diary learning things that was different or told different because of the perspectives. This is the one where they first meet Katherine and how Stefan really falls for her. He accepted her for her and didn't really care about what she was just so that she can be with him. Its until the show meets the real time of the book and since the show came first you get the sense that something big will bug the hell out of you and this one did but I enjoyed reading it showed a different side of Damon so I loved those parts alot. If you want to know what really happened back than and you enjoy the show pick this one up because it feels like your right there with them and telling him that something will happen.
