Don't confuse this with Twilight because it's not.
I got this after listening to my daughters audio book the awakening and I have to say I wa..Show More »s hooked so I now have all the Vampire Diaries books 1 to 7 and then I followed on with the series The hunters phantom book 8 -12 now eagerly awaiting the next one in the series book 13. It would be nice if Audible provided The Hunters books in audio that follow on from the Vampire Diaries
In this, the second volume in the new vampire diaries trilogy, the author continues to lead readers down the slightly obscure path she started us on i..Show More »n Nightfall. The first four books, written over ten years ago had a certain something of power about them which this new trilogy doesn't quite have. There really is something special about the original series. That said, it could be that, unlike many readers, Damon never held any charms for me. Stefan was always my champion and he is missing from a good part of both this book and Nightfall. This is just my personal preference rather than a criticism against the author, which is why I've still given it the top rating. Shadow Souls still has the same vivid descriptions and fascinating characters that first captivated me, and the writing only improves with each book. Also, the very unexpected ending will leave readers quite literally begging for the final instalment. I can only hope that Stefan gets the happy ending he deserves.
