Elena is back from the dead, but not completely. Her time on the Other Side has given her Powers that make her more than human. She and Stefan slowly adapt to her new abilities and their life together.
But a new evil quietly slides into Fells Church and begins infecting several young women. Damen, in the wrong place at the wrong time, also gets infected. Then Stefan disappears and Elena and her friends don't know where to start looking for him. Meanwhile, the Old Woods turn against everyone who enters.
Can Elena, Bonnie, Meredith, and Matt find the courage and strength to fight this new evil? Can they trust Damen? And for Elena's sake--can they find Stefan?
A great book, continuing the Vampire Diaries series.
