The Vampire Diaries: The Struggle Review [spoilers]

The second book picks up where The Awakening‘s huge cliffhanger left off, and further develops Damon’s obsessive attempts to win Elena’s affections and Stefan’s struggle to survive. With Stefan missing, Elena seeks Damon and confronts him in the graveyard. Damon claims he killed Stefan the previous night. Bonnie tries to psychic Stefan’s location and manages to channel him. It takes them a good while to realise what the place might be, when it shouldn’t <.< and they set off to rescue him. They find Stefan in a well, near death. Matt, Bonnie and Meredith insist on getting a Doctor but neither Elena or Stefan agree, claiming he’s afraid of doctors. Bonnie’s sister who’s a nurse is suggested by Elena who manages that way to send her friends away so she can rejuvenate Stefan with her blood. (Oh yeah, that’s a major difference with the TV show. Stefan DOES human blood. It is also implied that sharing blood is part of the vampire intimacy.)

Anyway, there’s the Founder’s Day set in this book and all the mishap and chaos that ensue (very different from the show) and the book ends with another huge cliffhanger: (highlight for spoiler) Elena drowns.
Overall, the series is not the “True Blood” kind of story, instead it has early teen target audience. However, it’s still a good read for fun. Don’t expect it to change your life 😉
