Category: Books, The Vampire Diaries TV

We got the publication dates for the new Vampire Diaries TV series tie-in books a couple of days ago, and now we have the synopses up for for all three books in the Stefan’s Diaries series. The information comes from the UK publishers, Hodder & Stoughton, via Amazon UK. The first book (Origins) looks to be a novelization of what we know from flashbacks from season one, hopefully with some more tidbits thrown in. Books two and three (Bloodlust and The Craving) are all-new stories set in the past, and the synopses are behind a spoiler cut for those of you who’d prefer to wait to be surprised. The big question we have is whether these stories will be part of the official TV series canon or not.

Now, if we could just get some covers to ogle, we’d be happy bunnies.

EDIT: Amazon US listings are currently unavailable – hopefully Amazon will get it sorted soon.

Book One: Origins

Set during the Civil War, against a backdrop of grand estates, unimaginable riches, and deadly secrets, three teenagers in Mystic Falls, Virginia enter a torrid love triangle that will span eternity.

Brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore are inseparable until they meet Katherine, a stunning, mysterious woman who turns their world upside down. Siblings turned rivals, the Salvatores compete for Katherine’s affection, only to discover that her sumptuous silk dresses and glittering gems hide a terrible secret: Katherine is a vampire. And she is intent on turning them into vampires so they can live together—forever.

Don't say we didn't warn you!

Book Two: Bloodlust

Stefan and Damon Salvatore are now vampires, and must deal with the consequences of their fate. They escape their small hometown of Mystic Falls, which is overrun with vampire hunters, and travel to New Orleans. While Stefan revels in his powers, Damon continues to mourn the loss of Katherine, the beautiful vampire that turned them both. But New Orleans offers temptations and dangers. Stefan falls in love with another human, and his willpower is tested to the limit. Damon ends up captured by an evil, sadistic vampire hunter. Stefan knows that he must save his brother, but will it cost him his new love?

Book Three: The Craving

Stefan Salvatore has come to terms with being a vampire. The events of the past few months have sobered him, and the fog of his own blood lust has begun to lift. He travels to New York City to start a new life, one that does not require him to kill humans to survive. Instead he feeds off of animals in Central Park. But the quiet life he envisioned is jolted when he runs into his brother Damon, who has convinced New York high society that he is Italian royalty. While Stefan is regaining his humanity, Damon has completely lost his. Stefan will do whatever it takes to protect Damon from himself, but there is another villain present. A vampire that seeks revenge for a death the Salvatores are responsible for. Stefan and Damon will have to work together to fight the greatest evil yet.

    Actually, the writer of the series do a pretty good job portraying the characters. Why doing a split and have another author (even if she is the original author) write a parallel plot? I so hope the books will be good!

    I <3 The Vampire Diaries! But I'm not sure which is better the show OR the books but I'd say they both are!

    I think it’s going to be stupid and what about Damon?

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that the Amazon link for the US is not working, the first one said that it’s currently unavailable and the other two say the page is not functioning. Could they be pre-ordered before? The UK ones are still working. I was getting ready to post about these, should have a long time ago, and noticed the links weren’t working. Just giving you a heads up.

    Thanks – they could be pre-ordered before, looks like Amazon have removed them for the moment, most likely they’re being updated with new database entries.

    You know what is fun, these synopses were already on Amazon France by June the 25th… I had thought I was going to see them here first, guess I was wrong.
