The Vampire Diaries: The Fury and Dark Reunion
In The Fury (the 3rd book in The Vampire Diaries), odd things are happening around town. Stefan, Damon and Elena call it the "Other Power" that is causing it, but they don't know what that Other Power is. They are trying to figure it out and stop it before people get hurt.
This one was pretty much action, start to finish, but somehow for me, things almost went too quickly, and I can't even explain why I didn't like that things went as quickly as they did; normally, past-paced appeals to me. Some people's secrets are revealed, and there is a bit of a surprise at the end of The Fury.
Dark Reunion (The Vampire Diaries, book 4) is told primarily from Bonnie's viewpoint. When someone in their group of friends in murdered, they have to find out who did it/what happened and stop it before someone else gets hurt.
I thought Dark Reunion was different from the other books and I liked the change, although I thought the end was unrealistic (yes, I know it's all supernatural, and therefore all unrealistic, but for the tone of the books, I just didn't think the ending fit).
Because of the tv show, some of the things that might have been a surprise weren't, but because there are also so many things different from the tv show, there were still some surprises. I actually wish I had known about these books when they were first published in the early 90s. I'm sure I would have liked them even more back then.
