    Not Safe for Vampires by William Frost (LostVampire)
    LostVampire: Thomas Watson becomes a vampire during the Civil War. The YA fantasy fiction novel NOT SAFE FOR VAMPIRES is a good read. It is only 128 pages, but it is not light reading, You really have to follow the beginning - once you understand the style of writing (there are flashback scenes) you will really enjoy the journey. The story is filled with history. For example, Africatown and the Clotilde ship are a real part of history (I googled it). Also, the character Captain Thomas Watson was really a soldier for the Union Army. I believe you will enjoy this book and add it to your library as well.… (more)

Estar irrevogavelmente apaixonada por um vampiro é tanto uma fantasia como um pesadelo, costurados em uma perigosa realidade para Bella Swan.

Empurrada em uma direção por sua intensa paixão por Edward Cullen, e em outra por sua profunda ligação com o lobisomem Jacob Black, ela resistiu a um tumultuado ano de tentação, perda e conflito até o momento da decisão definitiva. A escolha entre fazer parte do obscuro, mas sedutor, mundo dos imortais ou permanecer vivendo como humana se tornou o marco que poderá transformar o destino dos dois clãs: vampiros e lobisomens.

Agora que Bella tomou sua decisão, uma corrente de acontecimentos sem precedentes se desdobrará, com consequências devastadoras. No momento em que as feridas parecem prontas para ser cicatrizadas, e os desgastantes confrontos da vida de Bella, resolvidos, isso pode significar a destruição. Para todos. Para sempre.

I remember forcing myself to keep reading. I think I finished, but I don’t remember how it ended, probably because it was a struggle to finish it. ( )

I never read; I only watched the movie adaptation. ( )

the first "sex scene" I've ever read and made me terrified of getting pregnant ( )

And so the pabulum slips down, spoonful by spoonful, with every now and then a neat idea, an unspoken hint of untold perversity, an almost subliminal flash of something nasty.
 
Over 754 pages, the answers come almost too easily, but not quickly.
 
Certain elements of BREAKING DAWN are perplexing, even off-putting --- particularly the scenes of sex, pregnancy and childbirth.

But it's nearly impossible to please everyone --- especially when so much of the series' drama has relied on the tension of Bella's choice between two very different but desirable lovers. Readers who are able, eventually, to gain some perspective will find much to redeem BREAKING DAWN, particularly its new insights into Jacob's inner life as well as its neat resolution to several of the series' pressing conflicts and its realistic (or at least as realistic as a vampire romance can get) portrayal of the complexities and joys of married life.

Epigraph
Childhood is not from birth to a certain age and at a certain age. The child is grown, and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.
Edna St. Vincent Millay (Book 1: Bella)
And yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays.
>William Shakespeare "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Act III, Scene i (Book Two: Jacob)
Personal affection is a luxury you can have only after all your enemies are eliminated. Until then, everyone you love is a hostage, sapping your courage and corrumpting your judgment.
>Orson Scott Card "Empire" (Book Three: Bella)
Dedication
This book is dedicated to my ninja/agent, Jodi Reamer.
Thank you for keeping me off the ledge.

And thanks also to my favorite band,
the very aptly named Muse,
for providing a saga's worth of inspiration.
First words
I'd had more than my fair share of near-death experiences; it wasn't something you ever really got used to.
Quotations
The days were not long enough for me to get my fill of adoring my daughter; the nights did not have enough hours to satisfy my need for Edward.
