Well I read the books before I watched the T.V series, but I'll talk about the television series tomorrow or later today since it's 1A.M. Anyways, what can I say. First off, in my opinion, I actually enjoyed this more then twilight. It is different from Twilight and I don't want to start a argument, but after hearing that Stephenie Meyer got sued I must say that if I were to pick who should of sued Stephenie Meyer (this sounds totally mean, I know, but it's not intended to) I would pick L.J Smith. But anyways this book is very fast paced and doesn't drag on. Well Damon is kept out of it for a while, but that's all. It's not boring. I didn't really find any scenes that I thought should've been cut. This book is two books in the series in one. I liked the second book the best and the first book was good but the second one was better. The first one was fast paced but it didn't have enough action and the ending wasn't so good in my opinion. The Second book ending made up for that because I think it had the best ending I've ever read. Also L.J Smith does a fantastic job of creating a world that is very vivid to the mind. She also lets her readers see a super natural world that is to good to resist. With a hot, good-guyVampire and bad-boy vampire who are brothers. At first you'll hate Elena (protagonist) but after a while you'll begin to see her point of view and understand her pain and suffering. I must say that the emotions are well described and it defiently is a amazing book. The only thing I would suggest is that it weren't a cliffhanger in every book because if you don't have the next book you'll be sad. I suggest for any future buyers to buy the first volume and second volume. So you'll have the first four books in your hand.
