5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible!
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - but a little disappointed.
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...

This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: 7: Midnight (Paperback)I encourage reading and these books keep my daughter doing it. Presumably a good read as she keeps adding to her collection - haven't read them myself as vampires are just not my area of interest.

This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: 7: Midnight: TV Tie In (Paperback)haven't started reading this book yet cuz i still have to read my other vampire diaries books but when it was delivered it was it great condition
5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking but awesome!,
This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: 7: Midnight (Paperback)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.
2.0 out of 5 stars Vampire Diaries - The Return:Midnight,
This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: 7: Midnight (Paperback)It was an ok purchase. Wasn't exactly excited after finishing reading the novel. I didn't like the way it was written and felt there was a lack of interest embedded within the novel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book,
This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: 7: Midnight (Paperback)Another in the Vampire Diary series. A good read for over 13's in my opinion. Makes you think about if vampires actually exist.
