Love beyond life


The Twilight Saga is a teenager phenomenon. There are 4 books which tells the story of a female human and a male vampire. They are in love. These are the titles of the novels:

- Twilight
- New Moon
- Eclipse
- Breaking Dawn

Bella Swan moves to Forks to live with his father. At high school she falls for Edward Cullen. He saves her from a car crash and after she is determined to find out why he is so fast and so strong and she realises he is a vamipre.

In these books there is a lot of action and love. There are vampires who are "vegetarian" (don't get fed with human blood), vampires who drink human blood, vampires who fight other vampires, werewolves who fight with vampires, werewolves who collaborate with vampires,... and Bella, who wants to be in peace and don't want her vampire boyfriend family and friends and the werewolves to get hurt.


Why are these novels so famous? Well, at first I didn't know about Twilight, Edward Cullen or Bella Swan, but I bought the first book and then I realised why people liked it: Stephenie Meyer knows how to describe emotions, characters and places.

The author began writing "Twilight" because she had a dream and she didn't want to forget it. She created a world of fantasy and she wrote it down. Then she thought it was long enough and could be a book. Her sister read the whole story and encouraged her to get published. So, Stephenie Meyer wrote 15 agents: she got 9 rejections, 5 no-answers and one person who was interested in the book.



"Twilight"


I like a lot this book. There are nice conversations and very good description of the characters. Bella is a normal human teenager and Edward is a very good looking vampire.

Synopsis:

About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him - and I didnt know how dominant that part might be - that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him

****

When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his vampire identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret.

What bella doesn't realize is that the closer she gets to him, the more she is putting herself and those around her at risk, and it might be too late to turn back....

Deeply seductive and irresistibly compelling, "Twilight" is an extraordinary love story that will stay with you long after you have turned the final page.



"New Moon"


This book is not as good as the previous one, but is okay. Edward breaks up with Bella and she feels depressed. Fortunately, Jacob tries to help her to get better.

Synopsis:


"Shoot," I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.

It all happened very quickly then.

"No!" Edward roared... Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm—into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.

****

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella could ever have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning...

Passionate, riveting and deeply moving, "New Moon", the compelling sequel to "Twilight", irresistibly combines romance and suspense with a supernatural twist.



"Eclipse"


This novel is better than "New Moon". There is a lot of action and some characters are developed.

Synopsis:

"Bella?"

Edward's soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again.

This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.

* * *

As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob—knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

Following the international bestsellers "Twilight" and "New Moon", "Eclipse" is the much-anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's captivating saga of vampire romance.



"Breaking Dawn"


I like this book though there are some parts which could be deleted.

Synopsis:



When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?

****

To be ireevocably in love with a vampite is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dagerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imment choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate of two tribes hangs.

Now that Bella has made her desicion, a startling chain of umpredicted events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life - first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse - seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed. . . forever?

The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Teilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
