Books 3-4 in the series. Not the greatest books in the world, but not the worst! I have to say though, that for once, I prefer the TV show!

I think these ones were better than the previous two. It's such a guilty pleasure reading them, I admit. But they are fun.<br/><br/>I don't really have much to say about it. Predictable, ridiculous, fun. That's it!
Review by wyvernfriend
Not a terrible read but terrifically meh. In the Fury Elena is a vampire and in The Reunion she is dead and the heroes are dealing with the aftermath and an original. It's not terrible but I really didn't care for the characters, apart from occasionally Bonnie, which may be tainted by my liking for the character in the TV series. The ending of the second book here leaves a lot of questions about what is going to happen next....I'm not really pushed to really read more in this series but wouldn't stop myself if I happened on them.
Review by ArkhamReviews
I was really underwhelmed by both of these novels. They storyline was very flimsy, filled with purple prose and plot twists that come out of nowhere. The story had no tension - most action either occurred off page or the novel cut away while it was happening. All this just made me feel disconnected from the story so I didn't care when anything happened to the characters.The villain of both stories (the ancient evil and the ancienter evil) really came out of left field as they were only just hinted at earlier. There was really nothing to either of them beyond the fact that they were evil. While the villain of The Fury was at least defeated in an interesting way, the baddie from The Reunion faced a very over the top death by deus ex machina in one of the most ridiculous endings that I've ever read.Characters in this story are also very flat. Only Elena gets any kind of development, the others are flat and virtually interchangeable. They also seem very young - they're all supposed to be 17-18 years old but talk and act like 13 year olds. There is also suddenly a love triangle now which came out of nowhere. Why even bother with this tedious plot device when it's so obvious that Elena will stick with Stefan.
