Book Description

The vampire love triangle that spawned hundreds of thousands of fans - and inspired a major new dramatisation shown on ITV2 - concludes in this powerful final volume of The Vampire Diaries. In Midnight, golden girl Elena Gilbert is back from the Dark Dimension, having successfully freed her vampire boyfriend Stefan Salvatore from imprisonment. Saving Stefan had an unlikely consequence: his vampire brother Damon Salvatore has become a mortal. While the trio reels from this latest twist, they must still deal with the demons that have taken over Elena's hometown, Fell's Church. Midnight takes Elena, Stefan, and Damon to their darkest moments yet... Danger, romance, and paranormal mystery will keep readers fascinated with this captivating finale to the New York Times bestselling series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - but a little disappointed. 21 Mar. 2011
By ROlly
Format:Paperback
I have absolutely loved the Vampire Diaries. The final installment in this latest trilogy left me a little disappointed and I really did not want to be as I have really enjoyed the story so far. I would highly recommended the entire series. I simply had to read it to see how everything ended but I felt the the storytelling was not quite as well executed as the other novels. It could be a little repetitive in parts and it felt like it lost direction at times. I still enjoyed the core story and was eager to know how all the characters fared in the end - Damon remains a fantastically entertaining character throughout. If you have started the the Vampire Diaries journey it is worth finishing it with 'The Return'....

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! 14 Mar. 2011
By Emjay
Format:Paperback
The final book, and I must say it took my breath away!
I sometimes find that books towards the end of a series tend to flail and go dry, but I can happily report that this was not one of those cases. It was the perfect harmony of romance, danger, mystery and intrigue!
With both the Salvatore brothers back in (relative) safety, Elena has to not only figure out which will become her Prince, but also how to save her beloved town before 'the last midnight', when the twin Kitsune will unleash their true terror.
'Midnight' was beautifully written from start to finish, fuelling our emotions, and our need for more. I couldn't put the book down for the sheer intensity of it. The ending was, though highly traumatic and extremely tearful (at least for me!) amazing, and I have to say I felt very sad to be finishing it.
Although, maybe with that little quirk at the end... Is there possibly another story on the horizon?

4.0 out of 5 stars Willing suspension of disbelief 20 Mar. 2011
By Scheherazade VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I've heard a lot of things said about The Return sequence of the Vampire Diaries. Some of it was even true. I don't agree with the people who say it's not worth reading, though. There is some silliness in these books, but I think Midnight restores the tone, and brings the series to an appropriate (if a little abrupt!) conclusion. I was gripped by this book from beginning to end -- like the others in the series, it's action-packed and unrelenting, combining heartbreak and euphoria in equal measure. Some of it is a little incredulous, but then, this *is* fantasy fiction -- willing suspension of disbelief is the name of the game, and this book does ultimately reward tolerance of its more outré moments.

Some of this book is (perhaps inevitably) a let down -- Damon's restored humanity was a wasted moment, I felt, but nevertheless in keeping with his character. After being set up as a formidable enemy, Shinichi's easy defeat was also a little grating, as was the miraculous restoration of the town. It's perhaps this that makes the ending seem slightly rushed, but it's still one of the most gut-wrenching I've read for a while.

If you're one of the people who wished they'd left Stefan and Elena at the end of Book 4, then Midnight might just restore your faith in the series. I won't say it's masterful, because it's not -- but it's definitely worth a read. On the other hand, if you're a fan of this series, or of vampire fiction in general, then don't miss Midnight -- it's certainly not as "final" as it might seem!

2.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm 1 April 2011
By Emma
Format:Paperback
While I got completely stuck into the first 6 books, this final book just dissapointed me. There is something about Elena I never really got in all the books, she's almost hard to relate to and in the final book I found that even more so. The book just didn't hold my interest, and I'm sad to say I ending up skim reading it and skipping bits that I just couldn't get into. SPOILER ALERT HERE, but what was the point in making Damon change into a human in the last book, if he's just going to change back again in the next?!
I have to say I love what their doing with the series on T.V more than the books.
On a good note, the bits I did read were done well, and I will always be team Damon. =]

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking but awesome! 20 Jun. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Chapter 38 of this book completely captivated me, blew me away and left me with tears streaming down my face. It was then that I realised just how immersed I've become in the Vampire Diaries especially as I've read the series back to back over the last few months. For that alone I have given this a 5 star rating, however, anyone reading Midnight without having read the previous 6, would probably disagree.

I refuse to give spoilers, but for me this was a shocking ending that I hadn't been expecting, but in true L J Smith style the final chapter has an unbelievable twist that lets you know that this is not the end, as far as she was concerned anyway.

L J Smith continued on from this book and wrote another Vampire Diaries installment called 'The Hunters: Phantom' but Alloy Entertainment didn't like it, gave it to a ghostwriter to completely rewrite and then fired her from writing any more Vampire Diaries books under the 'work for hire' clause in her contract. This is also the reason why her books are totally different to the TV Series; it was completely rewritten by someone else.

As far as I am concerned, due to the above reasoning, Midnight will for me, be the last Vampire Diaries book in the series. What happens to the characters I will leave to my own imagination. I would prefer to keep it that way than read something that was written by a ghostwriter as I feel it would be nothing more than reading fan fiction. I will not support Alloy Entertainment's decision, will not purchase or even read any further installments of Vampire Diaries, and wish there was some way L J Smith could publish the 'real' continuation to the story on her own.
