The third book in the twilight saga, and in my personal opinion the best.
Bella is re-united with Edward and looking forward to spending forever with him..as if that would ever be possible!! however, at the beginning her most pressing problem is convincing Edward to make her into a vampire and give her forever!
An array of complications stand in their way. 1. Her best friend Jacob is in love with her and none too pleased about her plans. 2. the Volturi (the vampire "royal family" who we met at the end of book 2) expect Bella to be changed very soon and if not there will be dire consequences.. and to add to all of this there have been a number of mysterious disappearances..could this be another vampire? And if so why have they been drawn to Forks? It appears that Bella has many problems to contend with and convincing her vampire boyfriend to make her immortal is just one of them!
Readers will benefit from reading the first two stories first to get the background but I do feel this was astrong novel on its own. It was great to get background on the Cullen family (what their lives were like before Vampire) and find out more about the Quilette (werewolves) tribe.
The story mixes romance with excitement..I couldnt put it down. The build towards the final battle really kept me on the edge of my seat and Steph
anie Meyer has really fleshed out her characters, I even ended up emphasising with Rosalie a bit!!
After finishing this book I had high expectations for book 4!
