Something I do think the ghost writer should do, is go back and read all the books again. Did anyone else notice that apparently she thinks Meredith's last name is Suarez? Haha she changed Meredith's name from Sulez to Suarez....yeah major oops there. It would be great if she could manage to get all the characters a little more spot on. I think that L.J. Smith certainly messed up some things in The Return series, with the whole love quadrangle, and the dynamic in the relationship between Elena, Stefan, and Damon...but as far as all the individual characters go, in my opinion L.J. Smith wrote them a little better.
Also, in the last book officially written by L.J. Smith, the readers learn that Meredith is a human-vampire hybrid (officially sired by Klaus), and that she requires doses of blood to live (blood sausage, blood pudding, etc). In the last two books of The Hunters trilogy there is NO mention of this-- it's as if the entire matter never was mentioned.
The one bright spot in the entire book was Bonnie meeting Zander and finally having her own boyfriend. So many people were hoping Damon and Bonnie would end up together, but that simply would have never worked out-- their characters don't fit together in that way. According to L.J. Smith's blog writing, she had intended for this (Bonnie and Zander) to happen.
If the ghost-writer continues in this vein, it will require (undoubtedly) more than one book to conclude The Vampire Diaries series. I seriously hope he or she does not disappoint readers further by ending the series without substantial closure on most (if not all) fronts.
