Publisher's 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.

Night Fall: The Vampire Diaries

I couldn't put it down. This 5th installment of the Vampire Diaries is proof that books are always better than movies or tv. L. J. Smith writes magic with her words and gives new meaning to vampirism and its relationship to life and death. She also shows readers why it's a bad idea to gossip by raising some hell with twin Japanese supernatural fox creatures. Now that Elena is back, she has to relearn everything and possesses the gift of white power like Bonny. It seems as if though the rivalry with Caroline will never end, and now, Caroline is taking her anger out on Matt and wants the others dead. Although Steffen is abscent for the second half of the book, the reader learns much more about his brother Damon and may even fall in love with him like I did. Mrs. Flowers reveals a few secrets about herself as well. The narrator is stunning and gives the perfect touch to the words of L. J. Smith by artfully designating voices to each character. Her Italian accent for the vampire brothers is spot on making this listen totally sexy from start to finish.

Elena is back!!

I loved this book. It is so awsom to have all the characters in a new book. I can't wait for a new one to come.
Some times it is so scary and you sit there totally tense, because you wonder what's to come. In the next moment it's very sad etc.
The monologue is more straight forward then the previous novels. The characters are more rude, Caroline for example, is showing more how much she loathes Elena. Stefan is more cuddly towards Elena in the beginning. But that's because Elena is part angel and doesn't seem to remember things such as words and what to wear.
I really recommend you to read this next installment in the Vampire Diaries series.

Brilliant and Not like Twilight I'm happy to say.

Don't confuse this with Twilight because it's not.

I got this after listening to my daughters audio book the awakening and I have to say I was hooked so I now have all the Vampire Diaries books 1 to 7 and then I followed on with the series The hunters phantom book 8 -12 now eagerly awaiting the next one in the series book 13.
It would be nice if Audible provided The Hunters books in audio that follow on from the Vampire Diaries

Just when you think these characters have been through enough, L. J. Smith proves that she is by no means done with them. This fifth installment of the Vampire Diaries sees our band of heros once more pitted against supernatural enemies that threaten all they hold dear. Gripping and intense as its four preddasessors, and with two more books promised, this story is far from over.
