Publisher's Summary

The devil you know....

With the help of charming and devious Damon, Elena rescued her vampire love, Stefan, from the depths of the Dark Dimension. But neither brother returned unscathed.

Stefan is weak from his long imprisonment and needs more blood than Elena alone can give him, while a strange magic has turned Damon into a human. Savage and desperate, Damon will do anything to become a vampire again - even travel back to hell. But what will happen when he accidentally takes Bonnie with him?

Stefan and Elena hurry to rescue their innocent friend from the Dark Dimension, leaving Matt and Meredith to save their hometown from the dangerous spirits that have taken hold of Fell's Church. One by one, children are succumbing to demonic designs. But Matt and Meredith soon discover that the source of the evil is darker - and closer - than they ever could have imagined....

I love this series. I think the midnight series is pretty much the best out of all of the series. butt it is infuriating that I cannot get the next three books on audiobook.

Good entertainment...

Okay listen (Damon is hot!) but too much focus on Elena. Would have wished for Bonnie (or anyone else really) to shine some more. Don't like that Elena takes up all the space and seems to take for granted that she is the center of them all.

It is sad that the next series are not in audio

If you could sum up The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Midnight in three words, what would they be?

Ok. I like the ending. The middle was kinda boring, but it was a great story nevertheless. I just love the dark dimension.

Another good book

What did you love best about The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Midnight?

I listened to all the books in the series nonstop during a roadtrip. It was the perfect entertainment it kept me interested and I was able to focus on the story rather than comparing it to the tv version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Damon love the bad boys

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Mozo – was your favorite?

Damon

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Put me out of my misery

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

A child who wouldn't be disappointed with the waffling, the horrible story line, or the utter and complete lack of sexual intimacy.

What could L. J. Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Star balls? Guardians? Wings of Destruction? This was just silly.

Did Rebecca Mozo do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, she alternated the tone of her voice to make all the voices sound different.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed in the book and angry that I'd paid so much for it. It was truly awful.

Any additional comments?

Read Stephan's Diaries. So much better than this train-wreck.

dragging on series

I have enjoyed the series, but it has really begun to drag. This book seemed to take forever to end. The story wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as the others either. With another trip into the dark dimension, the book seemed like a new story-line must have been beyond the author. I still like the narrator, but she can only do so much with a droning story.

Not great writing or voices for characters.

I am a big fan of the show the Vampire diaries on the CW which are based off of the books, and after watching the show for two seasons, I just can't stand the accent that is used for the voices of Damon and Stephan, or the annoying winey voice of Bonnie. The voices make me regret purchasing this book on audible. I recommend just getting it for free from the library. The writing and storyline itself is terrible! I am an English major, I know a good story when I read one, and this is not a good story! Trust me, pass on this one!

Losing its thrill

This book just wasn't as good as the others. Alana is starting to get on my nerves, love Bonnie though!

  • Overall

Disappointing....(Warning, spoilers ahead)

After listening to the other 5 books, I was of course anticipating the completion of the series...however, this particular installment was drawn out, boring, and left many loose ends and unanswered questions; such as....what the heck happened to the kitsunai who gave stephan the bouquet? We never heard anything else about him, and the whole subject of stephan becoming human was just forgotten...I did notice, that though this was to be the completion of the series, the door WAS left open for more books....

Any additional comments?

Although i love to read (and also own this book in paperback) the audiobook really brings the story to life for me! The ipad audible app is excellent, i can set a sleep timer if im listening to it in bed, with this book though i ofen had to set it again and again as it was so good it kept me awake!
