The sixth book in The Vampire Diaries series, and the second in The Return trilogy.

Dear Diary,Edit

'A lot of boys have called me the most angelic girl in the world. I'll be honest. I considered them to be toys or trophies. None of my scheming or playing ever really touched my heart...until one very special boy came along. His name is Stefan.

And he turned out not to be what he looked like--a normal high school senior with rumpled dark hair and leaf-green eyes.

Stefan turned out to be a vampire.

So did his older brother, Damon.

A girl involved with two vampires is bound to be trouble.' ---Elena(back of book)


Stefan has been imprisoned by the evil kitsune, Shinichi and Misao. While her friends, Bonnie and Meredith watch over the evil that has taken over Fell's Church, Elena goes in search of Stefan. Damon helps Elena through the Dark Dimension, with help from Matt, who doesn't dare trust Elena in the hands of Damon. Each day, the tension grows between Elena and Damon, which comes to the impossible question. Does she want Damon or Stefan? Elena will go through anything to get Stefan back, and Damon is certain she doesn't want him... back in Fell's Church, Bonnie and Meredith try their hardest to cure the evil in all the teenage girls, but they end up getting caught in Elena's most dangerous adventure yet.
