Blurb (from Goodreads):
Family is power. The Original vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together always and forever. But even when you're immortal, promises are hard to keep. Arriving in New Orleans in 1722, Original vampire siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson believe they've escaped their dangerous past. But the city is lawless, a haven for witches and werewolves unwilling to share territory. The siblings are at their mercy…especially after Klaus meets the beautiful and mysterious Vivianne. Her impending marriage is key to ending the war between the supernatural factions—and Klaus's attraction to her could destroy the uneasy alliance. As Elijah works toward securing a piece of the city for his family, and Rebekah fights her unexpected feelings for a French captain, will Klaus's volatile desires bring their world crashing down—and tear them apart for good?

This started off okay, but I lost interest.

First off, I obviously didn’t pay that much attention to the cover of this one, because I had no idea that this was anything to do with the Vampire Diaries until I started reading it. I haven’t read the Vampire Diaries series for years, and I only remember it being okay.

Anyway, I just got bored by this. I didn’t care what was happening or why. There were a couple of okay moments, and I did like the first couple of chapters, but after that it just all went downhill. I really don’t want to read any more books in this series.
4 out of 10
