Imagine waking up after drowning. You should be dead. Why are you here? This happened to Elena Gilbert. She wakes up disoriented, not knowing what is going on. She feels beckoned to a certain part of the woods, so instead of just lying under the tree were she first reopened her eyes, she travels to see what is going on. Quickly she realizes that Damon, the vampire whose blood she drank that must have to turned her into what she now is, is in trouble. A man is attacking him and she feels like she needs to help, but what can she do?

As Stefan and Damon try to figure out the new Elena situation, they partly restore their bond. Both brothers are in love with Elena which makes them both care for her well-being. Ever since Elena became a vampire, without either of them anticipating her to, things have become more complicated. What are they supposed to do when the whole town thinks that Elena is dead and Stefan is a murderer? Why can’t Elena remember Stefan either? Elena, Stefan, Damon, and their friends learn that even when times are hard, you have to stand by the people that you care about.

In my opinion, this book was average, but not as good as the first two books in the series. Personally, I prefer the television show (but that might just be because you get to admire the actors). Anyone who likes books that deal with teen drama, the supernatural, and romance may like this novel. Although I was not the biggest fan of this book, it does give readers a great message. Sometimes you’re going to feel like your problems are too difficult to solve, but if you try hard and have others backing you up, you can accomplish anything.
