Series: Book 4 of The Vampire Diaries

The Final Conflict...The Last Deadly Kiss

Now she rises from the dead to recreate the powerful vampire trio.

Summoned by Elena, he keeps a promise to her and fights the most terrifying evil he's ever faced.

Joining the brother he once called enemy, Damon battles this new horror with strength, cunning, and deadly charm.

I truly believe I would have loved Dark Reunion if it hadn't given me that "reunion special" feel. Everything was neatly wrapped up and finalized at the end of The Fury, but the cast of characters was brought back more because the fans wanted it rather than there actually being more of the story left to tell.

Nevertheless, I did enjoy Dark Reunion. The Tyler aspect of the story was a completely unexpected but welcome surprise. I love Bonnie's abilities, but I wasn't in love with how they were used in this specific book. It seemed to allow a lot of easy access to Elena for whenever the other characters didn't know what to do.

Overall, Dark Reunion was amazingly fast paced, but not the least bit confusing. It provided a great chance to revisit with the characters and was a decent addition to The Vampire Diaries series even if it did lack some of the deeply emotional thrills of The Fury.
