*REVIEW* The Vampire Diaries, The Return: Shadow Souls


On the run . . .

Elena Gilbert's love, the vampire Stefan Salvatore, has been captured and imprisoned by demonic spirits who are wreaking havoc in Fell's Church. While her friends Bonnie and Meredith explore the evil that has taken over their town, Elena goes in search of Stefan.

In order to find him, she entrusts her life to Stefan's brother, Damon Salvatore, the handsome but deadly vampire who wants Elena, body and soul. Along with her childhood friend Matt, they set out for the slums of the Dark Dimension, where Stefan is being held captive. It is rumored to be a world where vampires and demons roam free, but humans must live enslaved to their supernatural masters. . . .

Elena will stop at nothing to free Stefan. Yet with each passing day the tension between Elena and Damon grows, and she is faced with a terrible decision: Which brother does she really want?

Back in Fell's Church, Bonnie and Meredith have made some dire discoveries. They hastily try to follow Elena and warn her—only to be caught up in Elena's most dangerous adventure yet.

Finally! L.J. Smith is back on top of her game with the latest installment in the popular Vampire Diaries series. This volumes picks up and follows the adventures of Elena, Damon and Matt as they travel to Arizona to enter the Dark Dimension where Stefan is being held prisoner. Predictably, Damon and Matt don't get along so well with each other and Matt ends up abandoning the mission and returning to Fell's Church to handle the mischief that is still brewing there, sending Bonnie and Meredith in his place to assist Elena in her desperate attempt to save Stefan.

This book is packed with action, drama, and romance. The chemistry between Elena and Damon sizzles and keeps you turning the page to read more and more. The characters face a multitude of challenges as they navigate the dangerous domain of the Dark Dimension. New characters are introduced and sacrifices are made. Will it be enough to safe Stefan from the true death?

I highly recommend this book to fans of the series. This volume far surpassed the last volume, in my opinion. And a jaw-dropping cliffhanger at the end will leave you dying to read more. So, if you made it through the last book, which was admittedly not the best, you should definitely give this volume a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Happy reading! *XOXO*
