If you read the previous book, you know Elena dies in the end. This book starts with Bonnie who has dreams of Elena in the Other World. But the dreams turn into nightmares as a source of evil power has come to Fells Church, threatening all of its inhabitants in danger. Following instructions passed from dream Elena, Meredith, Matt, and Bonnie use a summoning spell to call Stefan back. Only Damon tags along. When schoolmates of the girls start getting killed, Stefan realises they have to deal with an ancient evil and is not sure whether they will make it.
This book, like its predecessor was very well written. L.J. Smith wasn’t much of a writer and the first two books came across a bit forced but she developed characters extremely well in this book. Bonnie, Meredith and Stefan all blossomed and got character of their own. Damon is a readcandy as always and although the ending seemed a bit rushed, it leaves you with a smile. I can’t wait to get my hands on the spinoff now 🙂
