✻ [BOOKS] ✯ The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters: Moonsong By L.J. Smith ❅ – Peakpopa.info
Oh my GOD, this cover is hideous How does anyone think that would make the book sell For one, the guy is hideous, and for two, the way they put that shade of red in the background makes him look devoid of all natural skin tone ness In fact, he looks unnaturally pale, like he s been dead for five days and someone just propped his eyes open for this shot.One way or another, since LJ isn t writing this, I m not reading it buying it donating to its cause. Life Is Better Than Ever, Elena And Her Friends Can T Wait To Attend Dalcrest College But When Students Start To Disappear From Campus, Suddenly Every New Acquaintance Is A Potential Enemy Then Elena Uncovers A Long Hidden Secret, One That Shocks Her To The Core, She Realises That Darkness Has Followed Her From Fell S Church But Will It Be Stefan Or Damon Who Catches Her When She Falls I give this book zero ratings Seriously, ghost writer, you suck And I don t say this often about books or writers, but you do Maybe LJ Smith s writing wasn t always up to par but you CAN T write Why the publisher ever decided to hire a ghostwriter for The Hunters series is beyond me The characters are as lifeless as ever, if not even They have no soul, no personality I ve always considered Elena as a vain, ignorant, selfish, spoiled brat, but now she s not even that any Heck, I rather have characters I HATE than characters who make Bella Swan look like the best character since the invention of writing And what s worse is that, when LJ Smith still wrote these books, I at least got to enjoy the other characters Damon with his intriguing personality, bad boy persona and seductive looks and Stefan with his brooding, careful personality Now Don t make me get started Stefan is boring Even if I still liked him somewhat before, at this point I hate him He s even boring than spending three days watching reruns of the same TV shows He has no personality, the words to describe him are even generic than before, and his love for Elena Oh my god Seriously Does anyone still believe love can be like that He s not in love with Elena, at least not according to this book It s worse It s like love is the sole reason for his existence Elena cheats on him with Damon Who cares She s the woman of his life He LOVES her Oh for crying out loud Oh sure, he s upset at first, but this soon changes, and he forgives both Damon and Elena And meanwhile, Damon just stands there doing nothing and being totally UNLIKE Damon Even if he slightly changed in the later books, that doesn t mean that he would just stand there and do nothing if his one chance at being together with Elena was ripped straight from under his nose Why would ANYONE just stand there and do nothing Usually Damon makes these books for me Cocky, arrogant, but oh so very charming, he s the ultimate bad boy gone good But in this book He s just as clueless as the rest of them Everyone knows that one of Damon s personality traits is that he figures out stuff before all the others do Well, not in this case Although the mystery is BLOODY obvious from page one, our main characters only figure it out by the end of the book because they re STUPID, IGNORANT and ANNOYING Seriously Pick up the book Tell me at exactly what point you figured out who was behind the campus kidnappings and disappearings That s right VERY, VERY SOON You d probably have to be high on coke not to notice the villains as soon as they re introduced The only good news is that Bonnie gets a boyfriend But something s off about him, go figure Try to think of what could possible be wrong with Bonnie s boyfriend Spoiler alert for those who don t want to know.Did you guesswerewolf You re RIGHT I guessed it right from the start as well Bonnie s new boyfriend is a werewolf Wow I really didn t see that one coming eyeroll The plot itself is non existent Elena and her gang of puppies go to university for some reason unbeknown to me Considering they spend all their time fighting the supernatural, I was thinking they could put that as career path Or they could just die In any case, they end up at university Elena, Meredith and Bonnie share a room because they re BFFs and Elena s boyfriend knows some tricks such as mind control Unfortunately though, people start disappearing from campus, or getting terribly hurt.Note that this happens on day one A person is attacked on the very FIRST day our idiots arrive at campus How very convenient to get into the action right away Matt ends up sharing a room with a guy whocan you guess it Nope, he s not gay HeSPOILER ALERTdies Yep That was my second guess as well, but trust me, once you ve started on the book, you ll notice this from the first chapter you meet Matt s room mate.Damon, whose too cool to hang around campus, gets an appartment, where he spends virtually no time whatsoever except one very awkward date with Elena And if I say awkward, then I mean that these characters have no chemistry whatsoever left, courtesy of our infamous ghostwriter Way to grab two characters, turn them upside down and beat them until they have the personality of a cardboard figure.Meredith misses Alaric, Stefan is brooding and moody and does absolutely nothing besides that Bonnie hangs out with her boyfriend and his awkward and way too touchy friends Elena contemplates whether she should date Stefan or Damon So basically, it s the usual business Except all characters have been stripped of every interesting trait they ever had, and Elena is now the dumbest cow in the entire universe Now hear me out Elena tells Stefan that she s breaking up with him so that she can explore her feelings for both of them, and then decide whether she loves Stefan or Damon Meanwhile she stops seeing Stefan, but she does occassionally hang out with Damon, which makes Stefan angry Then she makes out with Damon a couple of times, but ends up choosing Stefan because he s her true love When she does so, Damon just stands there and Stefan takes her back because hey true love survives everything, including cheating on you with your own brother The plot itself is laughable The reason why people disappear or end up dead is simple Some wacko idiot has decided toSPOILER ALERTresurrect Klaus What NO O OH MY GOD Yes Stupidest plot ever I saw this one coming from miles away I could go on And on But please save yourself these two or precious hours on your life and DON T read this book These books weren t high standing quality material when LJ Smith still wrote them, but now they re being written by a ghost writer, they re terrilbe 0 stars You stole 2 hours of my life which I will never get back, you stupid, inspirationless, plotless book Seriously, either find a better ghostwriter or just stop wasting time on these books. Be prepared for ranting and some spoilers here peopleOk im about 4 chapters in and i already think the book is getting on my nerves, and by the book i really mean Elena, bloody hell she is irritating, and i looked in the back of the book to see how it ended i know u shouldnt but its something i just had to do for this one and the ending from what i could tell was that Elena has chosen Stefen Which wouldn t be so bad as i am a Damon and Bonnie fan anyway, but now Bonnie is going out with this other boy i guess she met in college who is a werewolf i think Its all gotten radiculous I mean the vampire diaries has never been my favourite series, sorry for the rant by the way but these things need to be bloody well said.At first i didnt really care that LJ got fired as she isnt the best author, no offense meant.Firing LJ was a stupid idea though, i would have liked to see where she went with the story if im honest But my advice to people if you are a Bonnie and Damon fan is to stay away, and also definitely stay away if you are a Damon and Elena fan because this book will crush your dreams ok, well rant over Hell maybe the last book will save this series, i doubt it but you never know xOk update just read a little of this book and i am now officially pissed off, after reading the part that i did i actually wanted to set fire to the book, or at the very least get it OUT of my life somewhere very far away In fact i was thinking of sending it to the same remote island i plan on sending justin bieber to once i raise enough mone for the kid fucktard napping I mean come ON, for fuck sake you have got to be mental in the bad way to think this book is good, the way Elena talks and is in this book is soooooo annoying The way Stefen acts like a right twat, i mean seriously if Edward hadn t already claimed the book boy with no personality prize for life then i think stefen would be a serious contender And DAMON dont even get me started on his character, i liked his bad boy side, i like it in the books and i like it on the show, good boy just doesnt suit him, i mean yeah ok he doesnt have to be a complete arsehol but he still needs that knife edge wit and seductive charm to make it just well DAMON There is honestly something wrong with the person who wrote this, hell maybe a person didnt even write this maybe a monkey did, no wait a brain damaged monkey with no concept of personality or interesting plot development I have to admit when i started reading moonsong i wasnt exactly expecting it to be good, i only read phantom because i wanted to know what would happen with Damon, i knew he couldnt be dead I hate to say this but, when Damon died i couldnt believe it i wanted so badly for another book so he would come back to life because really what is the vampire diaries without Damon , but now i am actually wishing he had stayed dead and that book seven had been the last I know i cant even believe im saying it but thats just the way i feel, the book is that..justoh there arent WORDS, i may have to invent a new word for how bad this book is hmm how about shapucktastic, yep thats the word right there Right im going now before i really say something i ll regret, well i wont regret it, but probably should I think i can sum up Elena with this xxx This is an abomination Another Vampire Diaries book not written by L J Smith There is no way I would support this book All Alloy cares about is money, not making good books and not giving the fans what they want Not only am I not reading this book, I ll never read any book packaged by Alloy. I am not a fan of this ghostwriter Like the previous book to this, I am not impressed The way this and the previous book is writen is just a little boring, and she he focuses WAY too much on dear, sweet, beautiful Stefan Oh, sweet Stefan, my only love And EVERY time Damon opens his mouth to Elena it s princess or darling or my love This writer is not focused enough on the actual storyline When Elena kissed Damon and was caught by Stefan Stefan s reaction was WAY out of character The writer just needed something to push Elena back to Stefan For me, I could put this book down in mid sentance at any part of this book and not pick it back up The calibur is NO WHERE NEAR LJ Smith I m finishing the book because I want to know what happens and see how everything turns out but I know it will be different than what LJ Smith had planned for the end of the series It doesn t matter to me who Elena ends up with But I just FEEL like she is a better match with Damon LJ Smith wanted to write the end of the series with Elena and Damon together and I don t know why Harper Collins is so intent on keeping Stefan and Elena together Do they think people will not continue to read the series if she ends up with Damon That is a stupid assumption, they obviously don t know their fan base.Anyway, I am going to finish the series with a bitter taste in my mouth with what this UNTALENTED ghostwriter has done with LJ s beloved characters. I won t read any of the ghostwritten books for The Secret Circle series or The Hunters series By giving a 1 star to these books, I m showing my dislike for Alloy Entertainment HarperCollins for firing L.J Smith They are not allowing her to write her books the way she wanted, because they only care about what sells and don t have any respect for story telling at all I personally am a Stelena fan, but just cause I want a story to be one way doesn t mean it should be They re not mine or anyone other than L.J Smith s stories to tell anyways. For those who don t know what I m talking about, here s the letter L.J Smith wrote herself to her fans regarding the issueHi Thank you so very much for your kind words about Midnight I m so gladyou re enjoying it, and if you already know that Damon says those threelittle words to Elena, then I expect you know what she does for himafterwards I can t say how much I appreciate your understanding of thebook, but at the same time my heart is so heavy that I just can t keeppretending about what s in the future for Delena fans.You see, I ve been fired from The Vampire Diaries mainly because instead of giving my publishers the strict Stelana they demanded, I went ahead and wrote what my heart told me to do They wanted Elena to realize that she was fond of or physically attracted to Damon, but that her one true love was Stefan But I didn t see the series that way And so Midnight is the last Vampire Diaries book you ll see by L J Smith.You re probably wondering how this can happen, since I write the series and have done so since 1990 But the truth is simple When I got a call asking me to write a vampire trilogy for Harper, it wasn t Harper who was calling me It was a book packager, now called Alloy Entertainment, calling on Harper s behalf Their job was to take authors work, put blurbs and covers on it, and sell it to a publisher When I wrote the first Vampire Diaries trilogy it was called work for hire By the time I found out what that meant it was too late.What it means is that the book packager, Alloy Entertainment, owns thebooks, not me Even though they are copyrighted to me, I still can t write them without Alloy s permission And they really hated any Delenacontent as well as the many scenes I had given to Bonnie, which they wanted to cut They demanded only Stelena And now they ve gotten an anonymous ghostwriter to do the books, the way a ghostwriter does Stefan s Diaries.The first book out after Midnight will probably sound something like mywriting, since I wrote Phantom for them But instead of edits, what I got back after I wrote it was a letter addressed to the ghostwriter by name, telling her to completely rewrite the book.I have been fighting, coaxing, and pleading with the people at both Alloy and Harper, as I already had the next two books after Phantom mapped out But there is nothing to be done They simply didn t like the way the series was going, and unlike most writers who work with book packagers, I was not submissive, meek, and eager to please them Instead, I had my own vision of the books But you can kiss any truly meaningful Delena moments goodbye, because I m afraid it just isn t the view of Harper or Alloy.Meanwhile, I am devastated Of course I have other series done directlywith a publisher The Forbidden Game, Dark Visions, and the Night Worldbooks But I put so much of myself into the Vampire Diaries books thatright now I m devastated I never imagined anything like this could happen But still, I can t say that I regret having written Shadow Souls or Midnight the way I did I wrote what I did because that was the vision I saw of the characters.I m just sorry that from now on Delena readers will have no hope of anything other than a Stelena endgame, and that written by someone who will do exactly what she is told.LisaL J Smith This series is just like a family It drives me crazy, it annoys me, I see all its faults, and I still LOVE it I could write either a mean review of Moonsong, or go all fangirlish Or I can do both.Read full review on my blog, Beyond Strange New Words.Moonsong is a typical middle book of a trilogy, continuing where Phantom left off and laying an intriguing basis for Destiny Rising Even though this series seems to be getting long, it still interests me As long as there is Damon in it and he is relatively happy while staying true to his character I m going to keep reading it. This book is crushing my Delena hopes. This cover is SO crappy,oh pardon me,creepy.
