Elena Gilbert is used to getting what she wants, and she wants mysterious new boy, Stefan. But Stefan is hiding a deadly secret - a secret that will change Elena’s life forever…
Elena is torn between her boyfriend, Stefan, and his brother, Damon. But these brothers hide dark secrets and a tragic past that threatens them all. Damon wants to lead Elena astray - and he’d rather kill Stefan than let him possess her.
Faced with an ancient evil, Stefan and Damon must stop their feuding and join forces with Elena to confront it. But in so doing, they are unwittingly sealing her fate…
Elena summons the vampire trio once more to unite and challenge their fate. Together they will be called to face the most terrifying evil Fell’s Church has ever known.
Elena Gilbert is alive - again.
When Elena sacrificed herself to save the two vampire brothers who loved her, she was consigned to a fate beyond death. Until a powerful supernatural force pulled her back.
Now Elena is not just human. She has powers. What’s more, her blood pulses with a unique force that makes her irresistible to any vampire.
Both brothers still want Elena to be theirs, but something bigger and more powerful than all of them may want her more.
Elena Gilbert is once again at the centre of magic and danger beyond her imagining. And once more, Stefan isn’t there to help! Elena is forced to trust her life to Damon, the handsome but deadly vampire who wants Elena, body and soul. They must journey to the slums of the Dark Dimension, a world where vampires and demons roam free, but humans must live as slaves of their supernatural masters. Damon’s brother, the brooding vampire Stefan whom Elena loves, is imprisoned here. Elena can only free him by finding the two hidden halves of the key to his cell.
Meanwhile, the tension between Elena and Damon mounts until Elena is faced with a terrible decision: which brother does she really want to be with?
The drama, danger and star-crossed love that fills each Vampire Diaries book is in full effect here, with Elena Gilbert once again filled with supernatural powers.
In Midnight, golden girl Elena Gilbert is back from the Dark Dimension, having successfully freed her vampire boyfriend, Stefan Salvatore, from imprisonment. Saving Stefan had an unlikely consequence: his vampire brother Damon Salvatore has become a mortal. While the trio reels from this latest twist, they must still deal with the demons that have taken over Elena's hometown, Fell's Church.
Since meeting vampire brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore, Elena Gilbert has been to hell and back. Now that she and her friends have saved their hometown from a demonic spirit, everything can finally go back to normal.
But Elena should know better than anyone that Fell’s Church will never be normal. In PHANTOM, a dangerous new other-worldly threat sets its sights on Elena. And this time, she can only count on one Salvatore brother to protect her.
Life is better than ever. Elena and her friends can’t wait to attend Dalcrest College. But when students start to disappear from campus, suddenly, every new acquaintance is a potential enemy.
Then Elena uncovers a long-hidden secret, one that shocks her to the core. She realises that darkness has followed her from Fell’s Church. But will it be Stefan or Damon who catches her when she falls?
Elena Gilbert has never been an ordinary teenager. After falling in love with the irresistible vampires Stefan and Damon Salvatore, she became a vampire, died, returned from the dead, and journeyed to hell and back to save Stefan. Now in college, Elena faces a terrifying new danger and discovers her destiny.
Now that the lethal properties of Elena’s blood have been discovered, Stefan has been risking it all to destroy the almighty Old Ones. But when Elena is almost killed in a car accident–one that was very clearly not an accident at all–she realizes that the most deadly Old One is determined to take her down. And he just might be powerful enough to do it…
Since her true love Stefan was staked through the heart, everything has changed for Elena. Stefan was hunted down by a scientist who has created a new race of genetically-engineered vampires to take over the paranormal world. Intent on eliminating all the natural vampires left on earth, Damon is the scientist’s next target. It’s a race against time to find the kryptonite of these strange creatures, before they hurt everyone Elena loves.
Ruthless scientist and vampire creator Jack Daltry is dead, killed by Damon and Elena. But now Elena is dying, and the Guardians have given her one chance to save both herself and Damon. She must go back into the past, back to before she met the Salvatore brothers and the point everything started.
Elena must ensure the destruction that was started with Stefan and Damon’s obsession with her will never begin. But she doesn’t know the Damon she first met all those years ago, and he doesn’t know her. He’s dangerous. And can she bear to create a future where she’s not with Damon or Stefan?
