Smith, but it didn't and it was so we have to get over it and read on, or let it go and walk away. All i can say is that i hope there isn't going to be any bullshit romance between Damon and Elena, that would just be stupid by this point. Everything was blurry and white. Her favorite movies are The Seven Samurai and Avatar analyze that! Jack leaned forward. Damon leaped toward them. Stefan joined the fight.

Anyways, I didn't have high expectations for this book, but I had to read it anyways. I like that it starts out with everyone out of college and living "adult" lives now because more Dalcrest stuff would've been pointless. The bad guys there were already taken care of. Everyone's living their lives as I always pictured it another bonus and Katherine and Damon are friends? He needed a somewhat distraction from Elena. Her plot in this book actually ended up upsetting me I liked the plot and the way the author who isn't a ghost write anymore, so if you have SERIOUS problems with the books now, you have a name to curse!
So that's all well and good. The ONE things I CANNOT accept that I can't believe this new author had the gall to do and the end if you've read it, you know what I'm talking about made me want to throw my phone which I was reading it on and hunt down the publishers who let that happen. Which was their plan all along. View all 3 comments. Sometimes I wonder why I bother continuing this series.
It feels like I've read a million stories about Elena Whiny Gilbert now and I'm starting to really lose interest. Every time I think this series has finally reached a conclusion, there's more. Yet I still continue to read it. Because despite its dreadful heroine, unoriginal plot and eternal continuity, I still do love this series and I do actually want to see it wrapped up eventually.
Unfortunately, my persistence means that I end up h Sometimes I wonder why I bother continuing this series. Unfortunately, my persistence means that I end up having to read incredibly uninteresting and extremely predictable books like this one.
I keep hoping that these books will go back to being good again, but that seems like too much to wish for at the moment. My main problem with this series is that I've completely lost interest in Stefan and Elena. I dislike their characters and I honestly couldn't care less what happens to them now. In fact, the only characters that I do care about are Damon who is getting progressively worse with each book , Bonnie who was barely in this one , Meredith who is also getting worse with each book and Matt who gets the worst storylines ever.
When L. Smith was still writing these books, the characters were dark and mysterious and multidimensional. Now they just seem completely flat and they're boring me, and the same thing is happening with the plots. Everything is so predictable and bland and nothing exciting is happening at all. There were some nights when I didn't even bother picking this book up because I knew that nothing exciting would happen, so I was probably better off just going to sleep. Whatever happened to the days when these books kept me guessing and made me feel something for the characters?
Oh, that's right. The author got sacked and replaced with an anonymous amateur. What a pity. All in all, this wasn't a fully bad book. It's a nice enough story and there is some twists at the end, although neither of them felt particularly exciting to me. My problem is that I don't like the new writer and that both the storylines and the characters are going downhill and that I just want this series over with.
It should have ended at four books and yet we're now onto eleven. I just wish someone would save us all this agony and just end the series now. I don't even mind if all the characters die. I'm just fed up now and I don't want to watch a series that I once loved go on such a downward spiral and I just want it over now. View 1 comment. This connection between them was one of my favourite parts of the book because I loved seeing how each of them reacted to the others emotions. May 02, Bridie-No excuses.
No apologies. No Regrets Jones added it Shelves: As you can see from my pre-reading review and other reviews i have written for the last few books in this series or the stream of drivel as it SHOULD be called by anyone who has ever read a real plot I did NOT have high expectations for this ridiculous and needless book. Right, it starts with everything having moved on A LOT, considering it's four years after the even As you can see from my pre-reading review and other reviews i have written for the last few books in this series or the stream of drivel as it SHOULD be called by anyone who has ever read a real plot I did NOT have high expectations for this ridiculous and needless book.
Right, it starts with everything having moved on A LOT, considering it's four years after the events of destiny rising the apparent last book in the series, pfffttt, well obvioulsy NOT. I quite liked that it was set four years later instead of just carrying straight on with everything because that would have been even m ore annoying than the events that ensued in this book. Elena and Stefan are living together being all lovey dovey blah blah blah eternal love blah blah blah oh my darling, my love blah blah blah and more fucking blah.
Elena is now immortal and everything having taken the Bonnie and Zander are still together and living together, Bonnie is a primary school teacher, and they are all happy. Meredith and Alaric are married and she's finishing up at law school. Meredith and Stefan are hunting Old ones. When they finally think they've killed them all Elena is almost killed in a car crash.
Of course this makes everyone run around like headless pigeons not chickens, it would be offensive to chickens as they are more clever than most of these characters. So blah blah more hunters show up and want to help kill Solomon the super duper evil old one that oh shock horror kills Elena's cat! Excuse me while i look for a fuck to give. Anyway they are all trying to look for him, but, you know what, fuck all that, it was boring and repetitive, as usual Bonnie and Elena save the day at the last minute blah blah blah.
My favourite parts are the bits with Damon's pov. I will admit that in this book i loved he change of pov, because it changed a lot, so i didn't have to put up with too much Elena and Stefan rubbish. I'm not saying i hate S and E's relationship, in fact i was quite pleasantly suprised that there was a very minimal amount of love triangleness.
But anyway Damon was travelling around with Katherine which was brilliant and unexpected. But then Damon is getting attacked by unkillable vampires which he later finds out is part of an experiment to create a new race of vampire and get rid of the original type of vampire e. Damon and Stefan, one of them dies, but i won't say which, and when i say dies i mean seriously actually dies. Not in the stupid coming back to life way like Damon and Elena did.
The one thing that pissed me off most about this book is that i couldn't figure out where the author is taking it. I mean i get the action side of things, but the emotions part confused me. In this book the two brothers are acting weirdly different. Stefan is being more selfish, although Elena and him make up after a serious fight, and Damon seems to be becoming more caring.
After everything we went through. All i can say is that i hope there isn't going to be any bullshit romance between Damon and Elena, that would just be stupid by this point. I have no idea where this series is going, but i actually find myself genuinely interested in finding out its a brother fucking miracle; xxx Pre-reading review- Alright, i walked into Waterstones and I saw this book, my heart almost exploded in my chest i swear i mean, what Destiny rising pissed me off, and i mean really pissed me off.
But i thought the horror was over, well, apparently fucking not. They must be doing it for the money by now right, there is NO reason to carry on with this series at all. The only other explaintion i can think of is that so many people hated the last book that Alloy thought they would write another one to try and undo the fucked up shitness of the last book too little too late you twits.
I swear to whatever gods that might exist this book had better not have any more love triangle rubbish. Damon, i love you, and if you don't find some sort of ACTUAL happiness hopefully NOT with Elena then i will be stalking someone from Alloy and finding out who this damn author is and knocking them over the head with something. The plot was slow and meandering. I didn't like how it switched through all the characters throughout the book, because most of them didn't really have a lot going on that contributed to the plot.
Which is all too bad because there were some interesting developments here that warranted more attention than they were given. This book is written by a ghostwriter, and I couldn't help but feel like it was phoned in, earning an easy buck on the pre-made fan base L.
Smith created. Kind of sad. The onl The plot was slow and meandering. The only redeeming thing about this book is that they kill off a major character at the end. Granted, this is Vampire Diaries, so I wouldn't be surprised if this character is miraculously resurrected.
But it was a pretty bold move, and I liked that. Damon is the only compelling character in the cast. This series doesn't need to bother trying to develop Bonnie, Meredith, or Matt. Even Elana and Stefan are dull in comparison. Stick with Damon, that's the money right there. Feb 12, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: Somethimes I wonder how it is possible that my oppinion may differ from books of the same serie.
This book was okay, but not my favorite. I had a few issue with it. But overal I liked it. The book takes off four years later.
Four years! A lot must have happen in the meantime. And so it has. I would have liked it better if we were there with them the whole time. Instead of telling us what all had happen to them. Not a big fan of the time they spent in Dalcrast in general. What an ending!! Poor Stefan! Finally he is out of the picture and leaves the road clear for Damon to strike! Let them be togheter in the end! Thank you. I love The Vampire Diaries.
Book as TV Show. I will definitely read the last two books. And I know the best is yet to come! Mar 08, Carly Fries rated it liked it. Before I Read the Book Just put Dalena back together and say the end , that's all you have to do. Summary of the Story So I know: What the fuck, right? However, a group of vampires who somehow can't be killed are after them, and they manage to kill Katherine.
While back home, after believing they have finished off the last of the Old Ones, another one shows up to kill Elena. A group of Hunters led by a guy named Jack arrives to help them, as does Elena's Guardian friend, Andres. Solomon, the Old One, manages to kill Stelena's cat and Andres before they take him down. However, he secretly body jumps into another Hunter's body, because yeah, he can do that.
Bonnie is away at Witch Camp - yes, really - for most of the book, but when she returns she suggests that Solomon doesn't actually take over his victim's body, he just controls them from a distance. So they track the real Solomon down and kill him once and for all. But just when the group thinks everything is fine and dandy, Damon comes across the lab of a doctor who has been creating the vampires who chased after he and Katherine. Apparently, he wants to eliminate the ordinary vampires to make room for these super vampires, now that he is one of them as well.
Damon finds the man's hit list, which includes both Salvatore brothers. Unfortunately he doesn't have time to warn his brother before Jack reveals himself to be the doctor by stabbing Stefan in the heart with a stake, killing him.
Damon returns home to mourn with the others, and he and Elena vow to get their revenge on Jack and his vampires, while meanwhile Jack invades Meredith's dreams and somehow makes her one of his new vampires too.
And Stefan hasn't tried to eat it yet? If Elena is immortal, how could a rock slide kill her? Or does it just mean she won't age or get sick? So she can die from being shot just like Stefan can die from being staked. Makes sense. Bonnie and Zander are still together after four years? And now he's Trinity! Even TV Matt rarely ever has a steady girlfriend. Poor thing.
Now that Solomon is dead here comes a new threat! Is Jack that doctor guy who's making vampires? Was he ever even a Hunter? Meredith is so not going to appreciate being turned into a vampire. Nuh uh. But thanks, I guess. This is literature - granted, not good literature, but still - not fucking Twitter.
Oct 08, Amber rated it it was ok. I hated all the hashtags. Oct 11, keikii Eats Books rated it did not like it. The problem is, is there is no build up. I have no reason to care about anything thing that is going on. Things keep happening, things keep getting introduced, and then.. They aren't developed at all. Everything that happened me just.. Damn when you think hmm anticlimax, woah another big thing happens and another plot twist I did not see coming!! Only two books left in the series..
Oct 11, Carol [Goodreads Addict] rated it it was amazing Shelves: Those that know me know that I am somewhat of a Vampire Diaries addict. I have read all 16 books in the series and obsessively watch the TV show. After Destiny Rising, I thought it was understood that the book series had come to an end. But then, the new trilogy, The Salvation, turned up. Unseen begins four years after the ending of Destiny Rising.
For days. At the top of the tower. The top of the first stairway opened into a large square room with a worn wooden floor. Katherine cocked her head questioningly. Damon realized. A small sound. The one in front of him. Damon recovered quickly. The sun had set more than an hour ago. They were trying to get him away from Katherine and Roberto.
Do you want me to hold your hand? For lack of any better options. How had he not sensed them? Where had they come from. It looked like Katherine was still finding little Roberto charming.
Roberto had been begging to explore the white medieval tower they could see from the windows of their palazzo. The moon was full and large. Katherine was just beginning to answer when Damon stiffened and held up a hand to quiet her. The surrounding area was full of vineyards. A gout of blood sprayed across the white stone of the tower.
Something else. As Damon turned back from the edge of the tower. There were so many of them. Damon could hear his feet clattering on the stairs above their heads. Katherine had finally agreed to take him. She was a good ally to have at his side.
Then several attacked Damon at once. He bared his teeth in a wild. I was born in the Hapsburg Empire. Alarmingly fast. Not people. Damon could feel her breath speeding up.
Damon snapped the neck of one of the vampires attacking him from the side. And then feet pounded on the stairs. Damon and Katherine moved back to back. You and I. Quick as a striking snake. Not that the fall would kill him. Too fast. Katherine was holding her own. One caught Damon by the arm and threw him hard.
There had been something … it came again. The leader. Damon had consented to come. There were still far too many of them. Roberto ran eagerly ahead of them.
He rolled quickly to his feet. Roberto was already climbing the next set of stairs. Damon leaped toward them. I love places like this. They must have been tracking us. Another vampire clutched at Damon before he could move toward the boy. Katherine gave a strangled cry.
The boy had probably never been in a fight before. Who would want to kill us now? Klaus is dead. At last. Their leap into the night had bought them a few minutes at best. Before any of the vampires following them could catch them. Shoving past them. If they made it to the station. He was probably already back up on top of the tower. But Roberto was in trouble. The most important thing was to get away. His opponent swung him around.
He could hear steps on the tower stairs. But then Katherine screamed.
A fierce-looking girl. They landed in a crackle of grape vines and the smell of dry earth. Damon thought briefly of his favorite jacket.
Damon and Katherine ran through the vineyards. Damon thought in annoyance. Damon was on his feet in an instant. With a terrible ripping sound.
A few feet from them one of the wounded vampires struggled to her feet. But before she could say anything. Something huge and dark rose up in front of her. Elena took a sharp right and headed back toward the highway. The road was clear ahead of her. It was evening right now in Italy. She pushed her foot down on the gas again. Please call me. After everything that had happened. It would be nice to give him a little welcome-home present. Was he fighting? What was going on? Panicked tears rose in her eyes—her own.
Just as her hand closed around the phone. Tightening her grip on the wheel until her hands ached. She needed to go home. You have to get out of the car. Please just trust me. It shifted under her hands with a rustling of fabric. The white stuff was an air bag. She had to get to Stefan. A wave of panic washed over her. She yanked on the wheel. It made her feel a little better.
The car was beginning to drift across the highway. Elena managed to drag open her eyes. Taking a deep breath and trying to calm down. Was she sick? Suddenly and without warning. Her head hurt and her chest ached terribly. Damon was in trouble. Trees and telephone poles whipped past in a blur of green and brown. A guy a few years older than she was.
Her heart raced. His emotions ran through her. With a huge effort. Everything was blurry and white. If Damon was good at anything.
Her fingers came away bright red. She involuntarily jerked the wheel aside and just managed to avoid sideswiping a parked car. Elena slammed down on the brake again. Stefan would know what to do. He traveled from country to country the way most people crossed streets. Elena thought dazedly. Elena twitched with irritation. But he could be anywhere. There was an aching. I must have hit something.
There was an antiquarian bookstore around the corner. She could have died. Suddenly she was desperate to get home to him. Whatever was happening to Damon. A heavy cloud of oily black smoke rose from the flames.
Possibly she had a concussion. Her stomach rolled with nausea as she blinked in shock at the dark smoke. He looked friendly and open. She felt like she might laugh. She glanced around wildly. Elena had thought. Jack wiped his hand across his face in a quick. And that was when her car exploded. It changed his whole face. Her mother had died in a car accident. The fact that she could have been gone forever.
She wrapped her arms around herself. She was drawing her breath in to scream for help again—surely there must be someone within earshot—when her captor came to a halt and let go of her. She automatically gathered her Power and used it to see his aura.
If they could talk logically about the why and the how. It went up in a great orange ball of flame and an ear-crunching boom. A car exploding in the street. Certainly not just from running into a tree. Jack hurried forward to steady her. She tried to take a step and stumbled. The dark-haired guy was standing next to her. He did his best to push down the jealousy that threatened to break the surface.
Grabbing the front of his shirt. In a second. Elena had been right. Who is Solomon? Stefan knew she was reaching for her bond with his brother. She glanced around the room at all of her worried friends. Elena had never been safe. Elena reached a hand out to touch his leg.
Elena loved him. Her instincts about people had always been sound. He was following me because he wants to talk to us. The world swung dizzyingly. But his gaze remained polite and attentive. I felt sure that Solomon was involved. Jack was an outsider. Stefan thought. I helped Elena.
Elena was frowning worriedly. It seemed smartest for her to get away from the car. I guess you know that. The thought of Elena dying was like an endless fall into a dark void. Meredith came back in from the kitchen with a washcloth. How naive of him to think that. He seemed to be taking everything in. Meredith frowned in surprise. Matt had been worrying silently in the side armchair nearby. Stefan flinched backward. Elena had almost died. Jack held up his hands. Stefan breathed a sigh of relief.
Her eyes landed on the stranger—Jack—who had gotten her out of the car after the crash and brought her home. Jack nodded pleasantly from his seat on the couch. The sign meant nothing to Stefan. Bonnie rubbed his belly without looking down at him. Stefan thought about all the ways that someone could be a good person and still want to kill vampires. Stefan thought carefully. Jack leaned forward. Sammy meowing in complaint as Bonnie unceremoniously dumped him off her lap.
They were all cunning and ruthless and terribly strong. There was an ache in his gums as his canines extended slowly. They had to be.
Flowers what she knows about divination for evil creatures? Bonnie and Alaric can use magic—Bonnie. He unzipped the bag. Most of the Old Ones. Wood dust. Like werewolves. They were crowding behind him.
Once we knew you existed. Stakes of white ash. Even if we manage to kill Solomon. I think Solomon is the last. It was a tiny shard of metal. Something cut into his palm and he pulled it back quickly.
Stefan felt his fists clench. Jack interrupted. Vampires killed her. But his gaze was riveted on the pulverized remains of his best weapon against the Old Ones. Elena shook her head. He has more power than you can imagine. They want hunters to see how powerful they are. Should we be running instead of fighting? All the safeguards and charms we have on this apartment. There was a fine dust all over his weapons. He turned his back to the others and breathed deeply.
There was a longing there. Nothing else had been touched. This is what we have to fight. Jack gave a short laugh. They were dark and full of what looked like pity. Even Bonnie. Jasmine gasped. But then he thought of what could happen. I told her. Matt clenched his jaw. It was just a normal accident. Jasmine was a doctor. Matt tried to shove aside the thoughts of Elena in danger.
She hit a telephone pole. A fierce. Matt could feel himself stiffening and rolled his neck to let go of the tension building up in him. Chloe had died because of her involvement in the mess of vampires and werewolves. It was an accident.
Even if Jasmine resented him for it. Something in him immediately recoiled from the idea. For one crazy moment. Now he was here. Matt froze. Matt wondered if maybe he could tell Jasmine the truth. And she cared about all his friends. It was selfish of him to even consider it. This new toughness had saved their lives more than once. He would keep her safe.
If he shared some of the worries that weighed him down. When he jogged around the corner. She glanced at her watch. Matt realized. Because they never did. Her eyes narrowed suspiciously. How did she manage to hit a telephone pole? From across the table. Her face had paled so that the freckles stood out like little dark dots. She put her teacup down a little too hard. There was no car in the drive. In the kitchen. Flowers has some ideas about how to search for Solomon.
Alysia nodded. Except for Mrs. Alysia had conjured up a pocket of tropical rain forest. If you find it useful. She works with a group that could help you strengthen your Power. And who was she. Alysia had her hand pressed against her chest and was breathing hard.
Zander bit happily into a scone. Next to her. Flowers sipping tea with a girl about their own age. No offense. Bonnie squirming impatiently as Mrs. Alysia kept smiling at her. In the middle of Mrs. Flowers was basically a recluse and.
Flowers poured two more cups of tea and handed around plates for scones and little sandwiches. In just a few seconds. It sounded like a good idea. Alysia gave a startled yelp. We all help one another focus and hone our abilities.
There was a flash of red. Alysia straightened. She needed to talk to Mrs.
She was as tiny as Bonnie herself. Bonnie blinked. She sighed appreciatively. Shadows of vines spread across the wall. Flowers about serious business. Flowers said briskly. Then suddenly his body twisted. That was strange.
Bonnie shifted uncomfortably. Werewolves were naturally strong. Flowers said serenely. I have a job. You owe it to yourself to try. You need to give this serious consideration. Bonnie turned to stare at him. Bonnie envisioned herself full of Power. In her imagination. And the school year just ended. This was her chance. Flowers nodded approvingly. Their cat had been torn to pieces.
Everything was turning to ice. Bonnie had left them with as many safety provisions as she could: Blood was spattered across the comforter. I need to check it out. He smelled blood. Gesturing at her to stay back.
Stefan just held tight to her. With a loud crack. Not just drops. Elena gave a faint. He turned toward the door. There were drops of blood scattered across the kitchen floor. And Aunt Judith told me the house is officially listed with the realtor now. There was something small and pale on the bed. Stefan swung open the bedroom door and the smells of blood. Stefan realized. But the smell of blood was overwhelming.
She rushed to the bed. He wanted to protect her. The pale thing. Stefan crept silently toward the kitchen. Matt wiped the floor below the kitchen window with a dish towel. Something was very wrong. Her face was pale. Zander had driven Bonnie to the airport that morning. A soft. The mirror turned silver with ice. The blood was dripping—Stefan could hear it falling off the comforter to pool on the floor. In the sudden stillness. Elena shuddered.
He sent tendrils of Power through the apartment. Everything looked normal. She must have been up all night making them. Paw prints.
He felt his canines lengthening. Stefan and Elena stared at each other. As Stefan looked around helplessly. Zander bent down and scraped his nails across the floor. Matt had known Elena long enough to see that her eyes were bright with unshed tears. Her parents had cut off contact with others of their kind when they stopped hunting themselves.
Then again. They all had those wary. Of course Meredith would be excited to finally meet more hunters. He could smell the coppery scent of blood throughout the apartment. In the doorway between the kitchen and bedroom. The young brown-haired hunter named Trinity knelt down next to Elena. After swiping at it a few times. Zander answered it. Alaric and Zander came back in the front door of the apartment. Matt thought. They shared a kind of competent grace. In some ways. She was sitting on the sofa between Stefan and Meredith.
Zander shot him a wry look. There was a soft knock on the door. They were all different physically. Nowhere was safe. He tilted it from one side to the other. Elena smiled weakly at her. It was too big a mess to fix with a few minutes and a towel. This was flashy. He gestured back toward Matt and the others. No one invited him. He said it mildly. This is Roy. Meredith was a hunter by nature. Zander looked up. If Solomon could come into their homes without an invitation. She gave a dorky little wave when Jack introduced her.
Her hands had balled into fists. Meredith flipped her pillow again and turned over. She had so much to do tomorrow. A heavy ominous feeling hung over all of them like a dark cloud. Meredith bit back more explanations of exactly how terrible the dream had been. They were determined to find him. Just a dream. Trying not to panic. She tried to shut her eyes against the glare and found that they.
Losing her careful control for a moment. Time passed.
There was something made of shiny silver metal just to the left of her head. It felt like a tracery of thin wires was fitted over her body. It was a message. Closing her eyes again. But finally she stopped. Would be one of them. Calm down. I wish Bonnie were here. It was chilly.
He was coming. Hunters did not cry. She gasped and panted. Every night recently it had been like this. Her throat felt rough and raw.
Pushing the memories away. The light was blinding. She wanted to hit out with her arms. Solomon wanted them to know it could have been any of them. But when she closed her eyes. She was in her own bed. Meredith strained against it.
Tensing her whole body. Alaric was snoring softly next to her. Whatever it was. It was watching her. She tried to examine it through the corner of her eyes. She tried to turn her face away. There was only one person who might know what it meant. She was so tired. Her heart thumped in her chest.
Figure out where you are. Alaric was stirring and grumbling next to her. It was a while before she realized that she was the one screaming. Alaric was right. Bonnie thought longingly. Then it was her brother. Meredith could hear herself panting. Something moved at the edge of her field of vision. Then the image morphed into her friend Samantha. A sink maybe.
So much death. I wish I were home. But if she blinked away the tears. Solomon seemed to be invisible. Something in Meredith snapped. Was she in a hospital? Meredith was stretched out flat on some kind of bed or table. A harsh antiseptic smell. Further in were runes and other symbols. Bonnie found herself in an elegant skyscraper apartment far above the streets of Chicago.
On the couch was a thin African American man a few years older than Bonnie whom Alysia introduced as Rick. You rock. I rock. The floor beneath them. Flowers making me memorize all those runes might come in handy after all.
Right now. I guess Mrs. She smiled tentatively around at the group. The slanty F represented abundance. The pattern of leaves and vines and blossoms went all the way around the edges of the room.
There were about twenty people scattered in groups around the big room. Zander believed in her. Near her. Why not? What proof did she have. Bonnie realized that here were people who wanted to learn what she had to teach them. He was thinking of her. Bonnie had pictured a bunch of earthy. In a little black dress. Bonnie thought hopefully. Daisies for happiness.
Alysia came over to meet her. Zander was right. Not vampires and demons. There was no Lady Ulma here to dress Bonnie in finery so that she could outshine them all. Bonnie shoved her fists deep into the pockets of her pants and hunched her shoulders. I am strong.
I am magic. But she could feel a prickle of tears at the back of her eyes. Bonnie straightened her shoulders and dropped the phone back in her bag before striding confidently into the middle of the room. Bonnie realized. Looking out the floor-toceiling stretch of windows beside her.
Even here. It was an expensive cocktail party in a big city. There were three other people in what was going to be her group. The center of the mosaic was filled by a brilliant golden sun.
And she should. Bonnie noted. After introducing them all. She smiled at Poppy and the girl grinned back at her.
Have fun. Her phone buzzed in her bag. Alysia left to talk to another group. These people could easily be vampires and demons. There was a text from Zander: She said part of the challenge is connecting with natural elements anywhere. The only thing that indicated this place might be more than just an expensive apartment was the mosaic floor.
But her wide. Bonnie fiddled with the glass in her hand. All the ones she could identify were positive. This is a good place to train. It reminded Elena of how the Pack fought. Elena felt herself flush. Vampires who are a threat to humanity. But then Alex. What did this sun-dappled place have to do with an ancient vampire? She watched.
Maybe it was time she learned to defend herself better. Easy to avoid being seen. Trinity dodged out of the way. Meredith and Zander were already picking carefully through them.
Want me to show you some moves? The three hunters managed to separate Meredith and Stefan. Elena swung around and kicked back at her automatically. Before Trinity could brace herself. Nothing overlooks us. But we hunters have our own techniques. She made contact this time. Trinity wandered over to Elena. That way. Try again.
