Publisher Description

The third book in the New York Times bestselling series by L.J. Smith.

The Craving is the third book in L.J. Smith’s bestselling Stefan’s Diaries series, which reveals the backstory of brothers Stefan and Damon from The Vampire Diaries series. This paperback features cover artwork from the hit CW TV series The Vampire Diaries, starring Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, and Ian Somerhalder.

Stefan Salvatore has come to terms with being a vampire. The events of the past few months have sobered him, and the fog of his own blood lust has begun to lift. He travels to New York City to start a new life—one that does not require him to kill humans to survive. Instead he feeds off of animals in Central Park. But the quiet life he envisioned is jolted when he runs into his brother Damon, who has convinced New York high society that he is Italian royalty. While Stefan is regaining his humanity, Damon has completely lost his. Stefan will do whatever it takes to protect Damon from himself—but there is another villain present. A vampire that seeks revenge for a death the Salvatores are responsible for. Stefan and Damon will have to work together to fight the greatest evil yet.

Full of dark shadows and surprising twists, the third book in the New York Times bestselling Stefan’s Diaries series raises the stakes for the Salvatore brothers as they face new loves, old treacheries, and unimaginable threats. Fans of L. J. Smith’s New York Times bestselling Vampire Diaries series as well as the hit television show won’t be able to put the latest Salvatore adventure down.

    " Nowhere near as good as the original series. A reminder, Stefan's Diaries follows the TV series, not the original book series. The whole Damon forcing a double wedding and actually going through with the wedding seemed a little over the top to me. Was glad to see Lexi come back into the picture. The Italian references nearly make me gag considering that's what they're supposed to be from the original books anyways. At least they're finally getting some clue about the dangers from Klaus though. We all know he causes enough trouble in the TV series as is, far more than his brief spotlight in the fourth book of the original series. "

    " Interesting to know about Stefan's and Damon's time in New York City. Enjoyed the two brothers with two sisters. Don't really know where the book ended with the whole "Beast" thing. Guess I'll just have to read the Ripper. "

    " I think it's was a great book. It really explain how Stefan can never really escape the wrath of Katherine and how she keeps on following him where ever he goes. Same thing with Damon showing even though he damned his brother to hell he can't esape him in his life. "

    " It was okay, I guess, good for a quick read and not terribly frustrating except for some minor annoyances. But overall a rather mediocre trilogy at best. "

    " I love these novellas that explain how the Salvatore brothers came to be and their struggle to be good or evil, each switching roles at at least one point. Learning about their background and how they interact with one another is just a good read. I mean, come on, who doesn't love sibling rivalries? "
