The Fury (Vampire Diaries, No 3) - L. J. Smith Because the second book in the series was better I decided to read the third book. I have to admit the story line has gotten better and more interesting. This one had more action which made the story fast past. Elena was also more likeable in this one…way less snobby. However, I’m still not sold on the idea of her and Stefan’s love. The plus side for me was learning more about Damon. I think for me he is the more crushworthy one of the brothers because of his mysterious and dangerous background.
