Ive read this book countless times.
Its one of the few vampire stories I can truely say I loved. This is one of Smiths great ones.It's a love triangle of unspeakable horror...
ELENA is Searching for the ultimate thrill, she vowed to have Stefan.
STEFAN is haunted by his tragic past, he struggled to resist her passion.
DAMON is driven by revenge, he hunted the brother who betrayed him.
Well thats the quicky. Really Elena falls madly in love with Stefan and then when she meets Damon he influences her and she's intrested in him. It is truelly an amazing book.
I give it 9/10
Book's 3 and 4
