The Vampire Diaries - The Awakening and The Struggle

The Vampire Diaries - The Awakening and The Struggle, 1991, 253 pages The Awakening and 239 pages The Struggle, Young Adult, Books 1 and 2 of 4

A deadly love triangle involving Elena, the human golden girl; Stefan, the "good" vampire who loves Elena; Damon, the "evil" vampire who is determined to have Elena.

The Awakening starts off the series with a sense of foreboding and excitement. The character we seem to know the least about is Damon and he is the one I find the most intriguing. I love his dark, mysterious and macabre ways. He is the kind of "person" you are drawn to even though they are terrifying.

The character I like the least is Elena who is self-centered, spoiled and vain. She is the Queen bee in the first book but falls from grace in the second as she is now dating Stefan, who is a murder suspect. I find her more relatable in The Struggle as she has fallen from grace. There is plenty of high school drama and feuding and am sure that the intended audience - young adults, will find this series quite enjoyable.

Rating 3 out of 5
