Book Description

5 Jan 2012 The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries (Book 4)

Twenty years have passed since Stefan Salvatore last saw his brother, Damon. Now, living in a remote town in England, Stefan is finally able to start over. But when news from London reaches Stefan of a brutal killer on the loose, who goes by Jack the Ripper, Stefan suspects that the murders are the work of a vampire...his brother.

Full of dark shadows and surprising twists, the fourth book in the Stefan's Diaries series raises the stakes for the Salvatore brothers as they face new loves, old treacheries, and unimaginable threats.

As a huge fan of the extremely popular Vampire Diaries television drama series, I was also keen to get `stuck-into' L.J Smith's book series (of the Vampire diaries and Stefan's diaries). Beautifully blending paranormal themes with a fresh, contemporary feel `The Vampire Diaries' books are current and classy within this highly competitive genre. If you enjoy Young Adult fiction with a darkly sinister, spinechilling twist then I highly recommend both the TV series and the books that began the world-wide love affair with Vampirism!

Volume four of Stefan's Diaries (the ripper) focuses on his relationship with his brother, whom he last saw over twenty-years ago along with haunting memories of mystic falls. However, when news from London reaches Stefan about a brutal killer on the loose (aka. Jack the Ripper), the only suspect in Stefan's mind is that of a Vampire...and one with a deadly bite and lust for blood...this is an intense, heartrending tale of brotherly bonds amid electric tension and heated conflict. It is certainly reminiscent of those family tensions and dramas, for as the saying goes...

"Blood runs thicker than water"

Full of shocking drama, unfolding secrets and suspense this has to be one of my favorites of Stefan's Diaries (Origins, Bloodlust & the craving). With a touch of the danger similar to that from Twilight Saga: in the form of Nomadic Vampires, with a creepy feeling of foreboding as the tension rises, this is a book that will have you glued to the pages with anticipation. I love how the books have covers of the television series and those actors whom we see as those distinctive characters within the books, which make it all the more striking.

The Vampire Diaries are an exceptional series and so I cannot praise them enough!!
