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, and kissed me again. His 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 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.
The legions of readers who are hooked on the romantic struggles of Bella and the vampire Edward will ecstatically devour this third installment of the story begun in Twilight, but it's unlikely to win over any newcomers. Jake, the werewolf met in New Moon, pursues Bella with renewed vigilance. However, when repercussions from an episode in Twilight place Bella in the mortal danger that series fans have come to expect, Jake and Edward forge an uneasy alliance. The plot patterns have begun to show here, but Meyer's other strengths remain intact. The supernatural elements accentuate the ordinary human dramas of growing up. Jake and Edward's competition for Bella feels particularly authentic, especially in their apparent desire to best each other as much as to win Bella. Once again the author presents teenage love as an almost inhuman force: " would have been my soul mate still," says Bella, "if his claim had not been overshadowed by something stronger, something so strong that it could not exist in a rational world." According to Meyer, the fourth book should tie up at least the Edward story, if not the whole shebang. Ages 12-up.
I think Stephenie Meyer's twilight series - best books I have ever read.
If you love vampires etc, read this!!!
LOVE THIS BOOK
This is the best book ever I just couldn’t put it down!!! If Stephanie Meyer was not born I would be depressed. These books I read again and again and are what got me through lockdown. Don’t look at comments and say to yourself after seeing one bad comment that it is bad, read the other books, give it a shot. POSITIVELY RECOMMEND!!!! Please read it.
This is the best book ever!!!! I am so glad that Bella picked Edward over Jacob Edward was always the best choice. I loved reading the book on iBooks it was so much easier! I didn’t need to carry around a massive book everywhere. But when I am home I loved to read it as a book slowly taking every word in I cannot wait for the next book!! I just wanted to say thank you Stephanie Meyer for making me feel that I wasn’t alone even when I thought I was. So thank you!!!🙂
