Dear SciFi Horror Readers,
I have a vampire book review for you. The Vampire Diaries: The Struggle, by writer L. J. Smith, is an easy read about a group of teenage vampire friends in high school.
The book begins with a verbal fight in a cemetery between the mortal, Elena and Damon, the very powerful vampire. During the strong conversation on November first; Damon informs Elena that he killed his vampire brother, Stefan the previous night.
We learn later in the book that a teacher, Mr. Tanner was also murdered recently. His body was found without any blood.
Throughout the book, Elena enjoys writing in her diary. We learn about her feelings for Stefan in her writings.
My favorite scenes in this book were the creepy scenes at the cemeteries and the old Francher place. I also like the very powerful vampire, Damon.
The ending was both thrilling and typical for a vampire book.
If you like scifi horror, like me, The Vampire Diaries is a fun series. They only take a couple of hours each to read and enjoy.
I hope you have enjoyed my review of The Vampire Diaries: The Struggle. This is one of my favorite vampire series’.
Until we chat again.
May good fortune guide your path.
