Vampires are hot right now, especially among teens, and The Vampire Diaries in a few short episodes became the CW’s most-watched show.
The Vampire Diaries brings together today’s best YA writers of the supernatural to talk about the show’s first season: the characters, the storyline, the magic, the town. From a history of the Salem’s witches from whom Bonnie is descended to family therapy for brothers Stefan and Damon, the anthology is guaranteed to keep Vampire Diaries viewers entertained—and make them see Mystic Falls, and the rest of the show, in a whole new way.
And the webmasters of, a popular fansite for both the books and show, also provide a primer on what viewers should know before picking up the books.

 Let’s face it…. Vampire Diaries is HOT HOT HOT! What better way to celebrate the books and the show by having the fans write about it!? The Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls is a compilation of essays on many different topics, ideas and themes behind the Vampire Diaries.  These essay focus on the first season of the show, offering unique background material that I found very informative and useful when re-watching the first season and starting the second season.  I loved how the characters and the history of Mystic Falls and Vampires were each explored in detail by YA authors.  A must read for any Vampire Diaries Fan!
