The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters: Moonsong - UK coverThe UK cover for the second volume of The Hunters, Moonsong, has now been revealed on Amazon.co.uk (click on the thumbnail for a larger version). White roses are symbols of innocence and purity, but also used as arrangements for rememberance. What do you guys think? Should we read anything into this, or is it just that white roses make the blood look more vivid?

Our book cover count for The Hunters is increasing, but we’d love to see other covers from around the world when they become available. If the books are being released in your country, why not let us know so we can share the covers and publication dates?

Amazon is also now listing the short synopses for both books. We’ve spoiler-blocked Moonsong as Phantom hasn’t been published yet. Mouseover or highlight the text to read it.

Phantom:

Since meeting 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 other-worldly threat sets its sights on Elena. And this time she can only count on one Salvatore brother to protect her.

Moonsong:

Life is better than ever, Elena and her friends can’t wait to attend Dalcrest College. But when students start to disappear from campus, suddenly every new acquaintance is a potential enemy.
Then Elena uncovers a long-hidden secret, one that shocks her to the core, she realises that darkness has followed her from Fell’s Church. But will it be Stefan or Damon who catches her when she falls?

Phantom is due to be released on October 25th in the US and November 3rd in the UK. Moonsong is due to be released on March 13th in the USA and March 1st in the 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.

Following up on news/rumors that exploded this past weekend, L.J. Smith has confirmed on her blog that she will no longer be writing The Vampire Diaries series. Below is her statement in full so there is no confusion:

First, I want to thank my readers for all their messages of support. I’ve gotten far too many emails to answer, and I really appreciate the kindness and emotional sustenance you’ve given to me at this difficult time.

Second, if you’ve asked me a question about the future books or the endgame of The Vampire Diaries and I’ve been vague about what’s in store, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize. I really wasn’t looking forward to the day when I would have to talk about this.

Third, and most importantly, I want to ask anyone who was thinking of it, not to boycott Harper’s or anyone. It just doesn’t make sense. Although I wanted and still want more than anything to be able to continue The Vampire Diaries series myself, there’s no point in not trying the new books. (And remember, for fans of Bonnie and Damon, and strict Stefan and Elena fans, the immediate dynamics may be more to your liking.) Besides which, Midnight, which is all mine, is coming out in March, and I believe there may be some of my writing in Phantom.

Thanks again to all the fans who have shown loving and loyal kindness to me.

The Vampire Diaries Book SeriesOn Thursday, L.J. Smith announced the title of the new Vampire Diaries trilogy on her blog, as well as the individual titles within said trilogy.

The New Name for the next Vampire Diaries Trilogy is . . .
. . . The Hunters. I suppose this is because the core group will be going to college together, where they will meet new characters and find mysteries to solve, both occult and otherwise.

LJS had previously stated that the first volume in the series would be called Phantom, and now we know the titles of the following two volumes as well: Moonsong and Eternity. She also states that readers can expect Phantom to hit the shelves Summer 2011.
