The darkness of the cave allows Gyre to flex her senses of taste, touch, and smell, when sight fails her. The use of all senses – even smell – to explore the cave makes an unknown world feel terrifyingly close.
The story picks up moments after Stefan attacks his brother Damon after Elena is found dead under Wickery Bridge. Elena is “woken” by the noise of Damon getting hurt by Stefan because he believed Damon killed Elena.
A fascinating meditation of leadership and culture.
The Struggle picks up in the same moment The Awakening leaves off. Elena is PISSED of at Damon because she figures it was him that took Stefan when he disappeared. The police were already looking for him in regards to Mr. Tanner’s death because Tyler started the high school kids thinking that Stefan was the murderer.
Stefan thinks if he stays away from her she will be safe. She reminds him of his own first and only love Katherine. Katherine is the one who made Stefan who he is.
I have been reading the Vampire Diaries books, well the first four anyway, since they came out in 1991 and have loved them. Even as an adult I still go back and visit Elena, Stefan, Damon, Meredith and Bonnie once in a while. I have wore out more than fifteen copies of each of the four original books. When I hear that the Vampire Diaries was being made into a TV series I was so excited until I saw the cast.
It’s important when reading this book to keep one hand turning the pages, and the other on your smartphone, because you will want to look up all these artists on Spotify and crank the volume.
