More About the Author
Lisa knew that she wanted to be a writer since she was about six, when a teacher praised a poem she'd written. She wrote her first book in high school, finishing it in her first year of college. Then she became a special education teacher before she was able to become a writer full-time.
The drama and intrigue continues for the Salvatore brothers in the fourth book of the heart-stopping Stefan's Diaries series, inspired by events on the hit television show The Vampire Diaries!

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!!
This book carries on with the story of Damon and Stefan Salvatore, two brothers whom are both vampires. It has been a while since the brothers have seen each other, twenty years in fact. But they are never that far away from each other. We follow them from human to vampire.
Stefan is living in England and suspects the work of a brutal killer is his brother. When he travels to London he looks Damon up. He assures Stefan he is not the ripper. So they work together finding out who it is. Then a twist is thrown in and an original may be after them. The showdown is one you don't want to miss. I don't want to spoil it but you won't see it coming.
My only disappointment is that they didn't follow along in a similar story to the tv show, I know it's based on the show, but the time frame differences do make a difference. We meet the characters from the show and get to fill in some gaps along the way. It is a really enjoyable and fun read.
I am a huge fan of L.J Smith books, I always have been. I know these aren't written by her anymore and that is disappointing, but they have tried and it is excellent writing. It is a fast paced and compelling read, one you will not want to put down. I would highly recommend this for all vampire fans, Vampire Diaries fans and urban fantasy fans.
