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.
Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah Mikaelson had won it all, only to lose it again by 1788. Control of New Orleans is split between the vampires and the werewolves, much to Klaus's displeasure.
In a dangerous attempt to reclaim his home, Klaus decides to build a vampire army to take out the werewolves once and for all. If he can't have love, then he'll settle for power. Elijah lets his brother take the reins as he turns his attentions to a beautiful and mysterious witch. But Rebekah has had enough of her brothers' love of bloodshed and begins a journey to find her first home and the key to her family's immortality.

As the battles rages on, the siblings must come together and fight for what they believe in most: family.


About The Rise (Book 1):

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?


About The Loss (Book 2):

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.

After a hurricane destroyed their city, Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson have rebuilt New Orleans to even greater glory. The year is 1766. The witches live on the fringes in the bayou. The werewolves have fled. But still, Klaus isn't satisfied. He wants more. He wants power. But when Klaus finally finds a witch who will perform a spell to give him what he desires most, she secretly uses Klaus to unleash a curse—one that brings back hundreds of her ancestors—and begins a war to reclaim New Orleans. As the siblings fight off the attack, only one thing's for certain—the result will be a bloodbath.

Siblings in order from oldest to youngest: Freya, Finn, Niklaus (half-brother), Kol, Rebekah, Henrik


Why did I choose to spotlight Elijah? 

Well besides the fact that he's smoking hot lol he's my favorite character. 

He is a thinker and is extremely intelligent, is an honorable noble man, is intense, has a dry sense of humor that I adore, and he's the one who tries to remain as human as he can considering his circumstances.

Also he knows how to rock a suit!

He is truly a middle child trying to keep the peace between his older and younger siblings. He's also fiercely protective of them and will do anything to keep his family safe from harm so do not mess with this guy or you will find yourself very dead.

Elijah is also a romantic he's searching for that special someone and even though he's come close a few times "the one" still hasn't showed up in his life.

  4. Elijah is my favorite. Klaus has several issues. Can't blame him when he discovered he is a bastard son from his Mother's indiscretion. Rebekah is a bit spoiled but then it is difficult to forge her own destiny when she has two protective brothers.
