Calhoun, Crissy

  • Go deep into the heart of Mystic Falls with this episode-by-episode look at the first season of The Vampire Diaries.

    Premiering in the thick of the vampire craze, The Vampire Diaries has proven itself to be much more than yet another addition to the overpopulated, undead pop-culture racket. Its mix of romance, horror, drama, and humor has won it great ratings for The CW, international acclaim, and a growing and devoted fan base.

    Love You to Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries is the essential guide to the show, featuring:

    • the story of L.J. Smith who first introduced Elena and the Salvatore brothers in her bestselling book series;
    • background on Kevin Williamson (Dawson’s Creek, Scream) and Julie Plec (Kyle XY), the masterminds behind the adaptation from page to screen;
    • biographies of the actors who bring Mystic Falls’ residents to life (. . . or afterlife);
    • insightful explorations of each episode with information on the rich history, supernatural mythology, film references, character development, and much more; and
    • exclusive interviews with TVDers, like the much-loved Malese Jow (Anna) and the fandom’s fearless leaders.

    With photos of the irresistible cast and of the show’s filming locations, Love You to Death captures the fun, fangs, and fear that make The Vampire Diaries so epic.
