This book was much better than the last one. I almost gave up the series after Nightfall. That one was just extra weird. I liked that this one featured Damon. There is more insight into him.

IMO the best of all the vampire diaries books. Damon and Ellen just sizzle in this one.

The characters and plot in this book are cartoonish with ridiculous juvenile conversations, out-of-character phrasing/mannerisms/actions for almost every character, and a silly complicated COMPLETELY POINTLESS plotline to tie it all together. This book has gotten so far away from what the first few books were that it doesn't even slightly resemble the series. worst book I have ever read that was written by an author who used to write GOOD books!

Who am I? I am Elena Gilbert, age eighteen. I am beautiful with blond hair that falls in soft waves past my shoulders and blue eyes that some have said are like lapis lazuli: dark blue with splashes of gold. A lot of boys have called me the mosta angelic girl in the world.”

I'm kicking myself for actually looking forwrad to this book and putting the emotional investment into reading it. Shadow Souls is truly awful, and I thought nothing could be worse than Nightfall. I am embarrassed for LJ Smith and all of the readers (including myself) who held out hope that the story of the Vampire Diaries could be redeemed after her last mess of a novel.

Much like the previous book, Smith seems determined to cram a bunch of folklore and fairy tales clichés into Shadow Souls, and this time most of them fit into the messily-detailed dark-age other world she creates. Magical Auras, demon dogs, gate keepers, fierce falcons- ugh. The book meanders all over the place at times, and so slowly that I had to put the book down in frustrated boredom several times, eventually I just didn't bother picking it back up again. Very disappointing direction for a series (the first 4 books) that started off with so much promise.
