New York Times bestselling series

The Return: Shadow Souls is the sixth book in L.J. Smith’s New York Times bestselling Vampire Diaries series.

Elena Gilbert is once again at the center of magic and danger beyond her imagining. And this time, Stefan isn’t there to help. Stefan is held prisoner in the Dark Dimension—a world where vampires and demons roam free, and where humans are at the command of their supernatural betters. To save the man she loves, Elena is forced to trust her life to his handsome, but deadly brother Damon. Damon has never concealed his love for Elena, and as the tension between them rises, Elena must face a terrible decision: which brother does she really want to be with?

The Return: Shadow Souls is perfect for fans of the hit CW TV show The Vampire Diaries, as well as fans of the original New York Times bestselling series who can’t wait to see what happens next with Elena, Stefan, and Damon.

    " It's off to the Dark Dimension for Elena, Meredith, Bonnie, and Damon so they can rescue Stefan. The cover, with Damon on the cover, I suppose, is one of the bad covers in the series. Though I still like the logo. But it didn't stop me from enjoying the book. The plot. The characters. The writing. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 11/27/2013

    " Honestly, the quality of the writing and the story line has gone down significantly with these books. The first few were fast-moving, fun reads. The last few have been boring, sluggish, and borderline bad, but I can't leave the series unfinished, so I'll slog through the new few I suppose. "

    " Wow, the author was really eating her Crazy-Flakes when she wrote this book. I suspect that she was also eating some Bad-Writing-Flakes. "

    " Shadow Souls brings back characters Stefan, Elena, and Damon for yet another round of trying to save Fells Church from being taken over by demons. This book will be best understood by The Vampire Diaries readers who have seen the characters progress. "
