Phantom - L.J. Smith I love L.J.Smith's writing but The Vampire Diaries is becoming too far-fetched and the characters are more and more despicable. She should end this series once and for all and write new books, like Dark Visions or Night World which I absolutely loved.* Ok I just learnt that L.J.Smith didn't write this one. Still doesn't change my opinion. Despicable characters, far-fetched story.
