In this point in the saga, Bella is still being hunted by a vampire that's been seeking revenge on her since the first book, and she is still trying to choose between her love for vampire love, Edward, or her friendship with her werewolf friend, Jacob. Bella's decision could ultimately be that re-start of century long feud between the vampires and werewolves if she's not careful. She also continues to long becoming a vampire to join Edward and his family.

In conjunction with the other books in the series, this would be in my personal classroom library for older grades (5th-7th). ( )

Yet another Twilight nightmare. In this instalment, Edward ups the ante in terms of creepy, obsessive, controlling and downright abusive behaviour by dismantling her truck (!) and banning her from going to see her werewolf best friend, Jacob Black, because he's too "dangerous." (Hello Pot, meet Kettle.) Jacob even points out how bizarre this behaviour is and that it is a warning sign for domestic abuse. Not that Jacob is perfect. In one chapter, he expresses his love for Bella, and she tells him she doesn't see him that way. Instead of accepting it, he tells her he's going to fight for her and he basically assaults her by forcefully kissing her. In retaliation, she punches him good and hard, which only serves to get her wrist broken. Edward is furious. The whole book has just turned into this love triangle thing. Meanwhile, she tries to get him to sleep with her, but he refuses because of moral reasons. She, of course, doesn't respect that and so he promises her if she marries him, he'll not only make love to her, but he'll change her into a vampire. She agrees to marry him, not because she loves him, but because she wants to get laid and become a vampire.

More mediocre writing and flat characters. Bella agrees to marry Edward for lousy reasons. Edward is controlling and abusive. Jacob sexually assaults Bella. Wondeful masterpiece, clearly. ( )

I actually skipped this book by mistake while reading the series... and didn't even notice until I looked at the movies...
I thought she was just doing something different in the last book by advancing the plot faster... ( )

Book 3 in The Twilight Saga. Bella and Edward are back together, while Bella is struggling to hold on to her friendship with her very best friend, Jacob. There is also a new threat lurking on the horizon.

This was another very entertaining story in the series. Romance, action, and some great interplay and moments between the characters, especially Bella and Jacob. Jacob continues to grow on me more and more with each book. It was interesting to learn more about Rosalie and Jasper, and also the legends of the werewolves. Atmospheric as always in the small-town setting of Forks, Washington. I'm looking forward to the final book, Breaking Dawn. ( )

Though I really liked the two first books better I would really like to thank Stephenie for Jacob`s perspective that finishes the book. Especially since I didn`t like Jacob`s character development through this book. ( )

Ask any high school girl: boys can be a pain. Fall for one who seems appealing, and he turns out to be a monster. One moment he acts like you don’t exist, the next, he drives you crazy by playing it cool — while his brothers circle you with hungry eyes. If you take a break to cut the tension, and hang out “just friends”-style with a younger guy who’s puppy-dogging you, what happens? Wouldn’t you know, he turns out to be a nightmare too.

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

- Robert Frost
To my husband, Pancho,
for your patience, love, friendship, humor,
and willingness to eat out.

And also to my children, Gabe, Seth, and Eli,
for letting me experience the kind of love
that people freely die for.
