If I haven't mentioned this before, let me mention it again. I'm a HUGE fan of the Vampire Diaries book series. I have a big kitsune tattooed on my side based on it.
I was overjoyed that LJ Smith finally got to write within her world again. I love the episodic stories. They are different but have a fresh feel to them and make me first I had a new one to read every week. As a Team Damon member, I'm happy to see Smith's take on him again. I want Elena to be his Dark Princess so bad.
Another thing I loved about this book was all the literary mentions. Marlowe is my favorite play writer so seeing his work and how it reflects the Vampire Diaries world is awesome. The William Blake stuff was enjoyable as well.
There was a few typos in my version but they were easy to look past. Can't wait to see what Smith throws us next!
