First there is Bella. She has just moved to Forks to live with her father Charlie, who is chief of police. Her mother Renee and stepdad Phil are travelling. She eventually finds a group of friends to sit with a t lunch they are; Jessica, Angela, Ben, Eric, Mike and Lauren. Bella eventually catches the eye of Edward Cullen. A sullen, yet gorgeous guy, who hides a dark secret he and the rest of the Cullen's are vampires. They consist of the local doctor Carlisle and his wife Esme. Then there is Rosalie (blond haired beauty) and Emmett (think the size of a bear). Then finally Alice and Jasper Cullen, they like Edward have special abilities. You also meet Jacob and Billy Black, who she has known since childhood. In this book the villains are James, Victoria and Laurent. James is a tracker who is partnered with Victoria the fiery red-head. Laurent looks like the leader of the group, but is not, he eventually leaves this coven.
I will try not to spoil it for anyone who has not read it yet, so here it goes. The book follows Bella as she stumbles her way around her new home town Forks. Here she meets the love of her life Edward. It turns out that his charm and good looks are all down to the fact that he and his family are Vampires. They welcome Bella into the family with open arms. But being in such close proximity with a large coven of vampires does have its drawbacks as Bella and Edward soon to find out.
I am a major fan of this book. You could even call me a Twihard fan, I am obsessed. I can read this book over and over and it still never gets boring. The thing is that Stephanie makes Bella so human that every young girl reading this book feels that they are similar to her in some way and they can totally relate to how she is feeling. I think the draw for me with this book is the love story. Boy meets girl. They fall in love. Edward is also painted to be the perfect guy; he is good looking, rich and willing to die for the girl he loves. All girls dream of finding their version of Edward and reading about it, sort or make the reality a bit more real for some girls. There are twists and turns throughout this book and it still is a book I can never put down once I begin to read. Well done Stephanie for bringing Edward into our lives.
