Some of you may say that the vampire trend has died. After all, we now have books about supernatural creatures such as zombies, angels, and fairies. I say the vampire trend is still around, at least for a little while longer. The Vampire Diaries series by L.J. Smith is incredibly popular. It is so popular that a hit television show was created based on the book and now a new series of books has been created based on the tv show.
The new series is called Stefan’s Diaries. The first in the series is called Origins. The setting is Mystic Falls, West Virginia during the Civil War. Damon and Stefan Salvatore are brothers from an elite family in Mystic Falls. Mystic Falls is rumored to be the home of supernatural creatures including vampires. Katherine Pierce, a teenage girl, comes to live with the Salvatores after her family was killed in a disastrous fire in Atlanta. Both brothers fall madly in love with Katherine instantly. She is mysterious and harboring a secret that will change the Salvatore brothers’ lives forever.
This series chronicles the Salvatore brothes lives after they turn into vampires. There are currently six books in this series including Bloodlust, The Craving, The Ripper, The Asylum, and The Compelled. Fans of the tv show will adore this series because it tells the story of the Salvatore brothers before they come back to modern day Mystic Falls. It is co-written by the writers of the show, Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson.
Check out this new series and be sure to watch the Season 4 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on the CW on October 11!
