    Blah, blah, blah... thats mostly what I felt during the entire reading experience of this book. Between the two books, the Fury and the Reunion I actually can't decide which I preferred. Actually it might be better to say which one I disliked the least. The characters are dismally boring most of the time, the only one thats halfway interesting is Damon and unfortunately we don't see a whole lot of him in either book. Both revolve around Stefan and Elena, and Bonnie in the Reunion. The characters are the worst thing about the books. If they improved on this, plotwise, setting-wise and atmosphere-wise the books are stronger.

    Now that I've my rant of my chest there were some things I liked. I liked the plot in both books with Elena as a vampire in the first one and the whole Klaus mystery in the second one. Both plots could have been even better with better written characters of course. The setting of Fell's Church, like the forest in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series and Forks in the Twilight Saga, is very atmospheric and adds to the drama of every scene. The end of the Reunion was my favourite part of the whole series so far actually and Fell's Church and its history is a big reason why. This may sound like a compliment but considering the content of the series so far its really not...

    Nonsense

    I was too optimistic thinking that the first two books would be the worst I had to expect from dear L.J. Smith..

    I was too optimistic thinking that the first two books would be the worst I had to expect from dear L.J. Smith..
    I'll admit that Elena isn't as bad a person as in the first two books, but her actions/reactions along with the ones of all the others are still terrible.
    The plot, in addition, doesn't make much sense on his own, leaving "some" important questions unanswered (if you aren't too concentrated on Stefan's gorgeousness and don't even bother to ask them yourself).

    Sure thing: reading these books was a waste of my time.

    Never thought that TV could have been better than books

    I began watching the TV series on the Internet and I felt in love with the characters (God saves Damon). Hence, I decided to read the books in order to get to the end before the Tv drama since I cannot wait week after week to know the developments of my favourite vampire- human affair. I struggle during a travel in Canada to find a library which displayed all books and I read it all during my flight back home (the guy near me was really concerned about my mental sanity).
    Well, forget the books: if you like the TV adaptation, you’ll hate these books where people are flat and emotionless (Elena – above all – is hateful while Damon is just a nasty boys and not the gourgoues-villan-deeply-evil-but-heart-broken played on TV).
    I know that after the fourth book there are others but I am not keen to waste my time this way: better waiting for torrent release on the Internet.

    ***Quotes***

    "Dark reunion":

    “[…] I thought we might want a few minutes without him.”
    “We want a few decades without him.”

    “Elena’s ring. Stefan had given it to her in the first place, and after she died he’d taken it to wear on a chain around his neck. So that part of her would be with him always. He’d said.”

    “Frightened, he’d felt his defenses tear away. All his secrets, all his resistance, all the tricks he used to keep other people at arm’s length. Elena had ripped through them all, exposing his vulnerability.
    Exposing his soul.
    And in the end, he found that it was what he wanted. He wanted Elena to see him without defenses, without walls. He wanted her to know him for what he was.”

    “No matter how much time passed, no matter what he did, he would never truly heal. Without Elena he would always be half himself, only half alive.”

    Freaky as hell. Graveyards, ouija boards, ghosts and spirits, dead girlfriends, and this is supposed to be a TEEN book?? First off, I hate any kind of horror-related things, the idea of ghosts and spirits terrify me. Second, I hate the idea of walking around in a graveyard in the middle of the night. Seriously, who does that?? Interesting story, fantastical for sure, but I just wanted to get to the end so that I could leave the book on a happy note.
