The Vampire Diaries: Fury and Dark Reunion by L.J Smith

BLURBS:
Elena: transformed, the golden girl has become what she once feared and desired.
Stefan: tormented by losing Elena, he's determined to end his feud with Damon once and for all—whatever the cost. But slowly he begins to realize that his brother is not his only enemy.
Damon: at last, he possesses Elena. But will his thirst for revenge against Stefan poison his triumph? Or can they come together to face one final battle?
Collected here in one edition are the third and fourth volumes of The Vampire Diaries, a riveting conclusion to the tale of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.
THOUGHTS:
Before I breakdown my likes and dislike about this 3rd and 4th take on this series. I'd like every one to know how spook I was with so many scenes in these book. So I wouldn't really recommend it for younger crowds. Something evil is at Fell's Church and Smith made sure I felt that too. My mind was catapulted into the dark realms that was described in the book. imagination overdrive, maybe, nonetheless consider yourselves warned.Also I have discovered that my 2nd fave character is Bonnie. Aside from her psychic abilities, she is also loyal, resourceful, trustworthy, and she certainly isn't self-absorbed. Elena is cool but Smith keeps saying how beautiful and popular she was even after death that it turns me off. Although I love her fighting spirit, strong will and commanding presence. I'd like to see more scenes from Matt too on the next series.
LIKES:
1. I like it because it was Bonnie's turn to make up a diary.
2. I told you guys, Damon is not of pure evil and it shows that little glimmer of what he is in this book.
3. The killings were absolutely what a vampire book should be.
4. Love it that the book did not really stall into anything stupid or disappointing.
5. There were interesting and new (to me) intake on supernatural fiction.
6. Page turner, action pack and an absolute thriller.
7. Bonnie's powers.
DISLIKES:
1. Stefan blaming everything on himself. He gives himself too much credit, it was somewhat exhausting.
2. The lack of lines for Damon.
3. Death of another girl. Seriously, is there a guy that is supposed to die in this series? (The death of Mr. Tanner, does not count, the feminist in me thinks it's hardly fair).
4. I had an uncanny guess on who were the villains. Not the books fault, but with that happening, the shock did not dawn on me.
5. The ending of The Dark Reunion was lame.
EXPECTATIONS:
1. I knew that the villains were Katherine and Klaus, and no, I DID NOT poke around for clues. I just knew from the succession of events.
2. I knew that there's going to be a werewolf involve.
3. All series has it's lame ending, and I have accepted that it is inevitable.
