Publisher's Summary

On the run....
Elena Gilbert's love, the vampire Stefan Salvatore, has been captured and imprisoned by demonic spirits who are wreaking havoc in Fell's Church. While her friends Bonnie and Meredith explore the evil that has taken over their town, Elena goes in search of Stefan.
In order to find him, she entrusts her life to Stefan's brother, Damon Salvatore, the handsome but deadly vampire who wants Elena, body and soul. Along with her childhood friend Matt, they set out for the slums of the Dark Dimension, where Stefan is being held captive. It is rumored to be a world where vampires and demons roam free, but humans must live enslaved to their supernatural masters.
Elena will stop at nothing to free Stefan. Yet with each passing day the tension between Elena and Damon grows, and she is faced with a terrible decision: Which brother does she really want?
Back in Fell's Church, Bonnie and Meredith have made some dire discoveries. They hastily try to follow Elena and warn her - only to be caught up in Elena's most dangerous adventure yet.

Shadow Souls

In this, the second volume in the new vampire diaries trilogy, the author continues to lead readers down the slightly obscure path she started us on in Nightfall. The first four books, written over ten years ago had a certain something of power about them which this new trilogy doesn't quite have. There really is something special about the original series. That said, it could be that, unlike many readers, Damon never held any charms for me. Stefan was always my champion and he is missing from a good part of both this book and Nightfall. This is just my personal preference rather than a criticism against the author, which is why I've still given it the top rating. Shadow Souls still has the same vivid descriptions and fascinating characters that first captivated me, and the writing only improves with each book. Also, the very unexpected ending will leave readers quite literally begging for the final instalment. I can only hope that Stefan gets the happy ending he deserves.
