New York Times bestselling series

The Return: Nightfall is the fifth book in L.J. Smith's New York Times bestselling Vampire Diaries series.

Elena Gilbert is back from the dead, but she's come back changed--with newfound powers and blood that is irresistible to vampires, including Stefan and Damon Salvatore, the two vampire brothers who love her. Unfortunately, it's not just vampires who are drawn to her. Darkness is infiltrating her hometown of Fell's Church and is taking over the minds of young girls. Even worse, a demon has taken possession of Damon, causing him to turn on his brother, Elena's friends, and even on Elena herself.

The Return: Nightfall is perfect for fans of the hit CW TV show The Vampire Diaries, as well as fans of the original New York Times bestselling series who can't wait to see what happens next with Elena, Stefan, and Damon.

This book was very uninteresting. The plot was not very good, and at some parts it was just plain creepy. Definitely not as good as the first four.

I could barely get through this book. These books are really weird but this one ugh. I almost stopped reading the series but decided to go ahead and read Shadow Souls. I am glad I did it was much better.

This Book is great...but there is not much of a story in it! Very disappointed but over all I liked the Book and enjoyed reading it in my spare times.

So uninteresting! I only just read a third of this book and found it hard to continue. Fragmented and the story line is just broken. Enela is pictured like a saint or something ... with a wing? seriously...

There is a 6th book, it's called "The Return: Shadow Souls", and the 7th one, "The Return: Midnight", comes out on Match 15th. And the author's website states that she is writing 8-10 at the moment too.

ayesha96, no this is the fifth book. The Fury is the third book in the series, the new editions are 2 in 1 the first 4, but Nightfall is the fifth book in the Vampire diaries series.
