Official summary: "Love is the most powerful force of all... Elena Gilbert is dying. When Damon Salvatore avenged his brother Stefan’s death, he broke the sacred deal he’d made with the Guardians — and put Elena’s life at risk. She should be dead, but instead, the Guardians are offering Elena a once-in-a-lifetime chance: to start over. Ever since she met the Salvatore brothers, Elena’s love for them both has caused endless death and destruction. But if Elena can return to the beginning — her senior year of high school, when she first met Damon and Stefan — and prove that she can exist alongside them without either of them killing a human, then Elena can live. But the Damon of years ago is unpredictable, rash, and dangerous. The only way for Elena to save everyone — including herself — might be to give up the Salvatores forever. Will Elena be able to sacrifice her own desires for the greater good? Or is her path to tragic love already written in the stars?"
How I obtained the book: Pre-ordered for $8.26 from Amazon using a giftcard I got free through Plink.com
- I really hope this is the last book in this series. I thought the series was over a long time ago. This book was great, and I like this new author, but the story is just ready to be over. It's just time to be done.
- SPOILER ALERT: I'm really happy that Elena ended up with Damon in the end. I'm happy that everyone is more or less happy. I'm glad that Stefan's alive and safe. But having Elena go back in time and change history was just ridiculous. The Guardians had already changed history when they changed Elena's life making it where she had never died and become a vampire. So why did we need another history-changing storyline?

Reading Bingo: On the Reading Bingo Challenge I am going to mark this book off as "a book with a lion, a witch, or a wardrobe." Bonnie's a witch, so I think that one will work for it.
