The U.S. and U.K. covers of Phantom, the first volume in the new Vampire Diaries trilogy The Hunters, have turned up – and do our eyes deceive us or is that Meredith making her first appearance on a TVD U.S. book cover? Or is it a darker-than-usual Elena? You can check out bigger versions in the Gallery. Phantom hits shelves on October 25, 2011. Pre-Order: [Amazon US] [Amazon UK].

As for The Hunters trilogy itself – since L.J. Smith is no longer writing The Vampire Diaries series, we’re not sure how much of the original concept (as alluded to in her blog) remains intact. Here’s the official release from HarperCollins:

A regular on national bestseller lists, having sold well over three million copies, The Vampire Diaries series is a classic of thrilling paranormal romance. The Vampire Diaries series has captured the hearts and imaginations of readers—and the CW network TV show that it inspired has introduced millions more to the chills, thrills, and heart-stopping romance. Phantom begins a new trilogy in this breathtaking saga of love among vampires.

Since meeting the irresistible vampire brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore, Elena Gilbert has been to hell and back. Now that she and her friends have saved their hometown from a demonic spirit, everything can finally go back to normal. But Elena should know better than anyone that Fell’s Church will never be normal. In Phantom, a dangerous new threat sets its sights on Elena. And this time she can only count on one Salvatore brother to protect her.

    Dude seriously why would you write a spoiler like that? Keep book details out for people who haven’t read and might come across this site.

    I am a Stelena fan all the way but I do not think that a publishing house should fire an author she should never have sold her writes to Harper Collins.  I would have accepted whatever she decided to write in the end even if it went against my own personal preference because it is HER story and she should be able to write it the way she wants and not have the right stripped from her.  It is her story she created it so Harper Collins is totally wrong.  I will continue to read the books but I think that what happened to her is a lesson to all other writers never sell yourself out to the point that a publishing house fires you! It should be the other way around if the publisher disagrees you fire them!
