From the Back Cover
Set during the Civil War, against a backdrop of grand estates, unimaginable riches, and deadly secrets, three teenagers in Mystic Falls, Virginia enter a torrid love triangle that will span eternity.
Brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore are inseparable until they meet Katherine, a stunning, mysterious woman who turns their world upside down. Siblings turned rivals, the Salvatores compete for Katherine's affection, only to discover that her sumptuous silk dresses and glittering gems hide a terrible secret: Katherine is a vampire. And she is intent on turning them into vampires so they can live together-forever.
Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan's Diaries reveals the truth about what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine—and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began.

I think it did just that and it followed the show a bit also.I had heard the other v.d. Books were not as good as these. Glad I gave these a chance the only thing that I don't like is the price.I usually never pay this much for a book and less for a kindle book.Well maybe it could have been longer also cause I read it in one day.But through all of these faults I say if you are a fan of the show probably not a fan of the original books or read them at all then you will be pretty happy with this series.Now I'm off to read the next one with yummy Damon on the cover.
And if you are like me and love this type of book i can also recommend the Sookie Stackhouse books Definitely Dead: A Sookie Stackhouse Novelor really anything by Charlaine Harris.
As well as a great book about a young witch. the Magic withinThe Magic Within or anything by S.B. Stewart The Alchemist's Gift (Adventures of Rhonda Lewis)
Since it does say based on the novels and the TV series, I was hoping for more of the latter, since I have not read any of the L.J.Smith books and don't want to until the TV show has run its course. If you love the TV show, go ahead and get this book, most of it does follow the show.
I have no complaints with the writing and the book was entertaining enough. But like all the Vampire Diary books, it lacked a certain depth. For what it was, it was pretty good though. I have to say, if you are going to write a soap opera style book (a harlequin romance with vampires) - then price it accordingly.
