So, he had been listening to Angela's and Jessica's thoughts to keep tabs on her. When she left them, he lost her for a while, but managed to find her by scent just in time. Hearing the would-be-rapists' thoughts about Bella nearly sent him over the edge.
He needed Bella to distract him so that he could stop himself from hunting them down and killing them all. Still driving home, Bella freaks out at how fast he is driving, and he tells her not to worry because he is a "built-in radar detector".
Sufficiently soothed, Bella continues to ask questions. She asks if her assumption that when his eyes are golden he is full, and when his eyes are black he is thirsty is right.
Surprised at her observance, he comfirms that's correct. Then Bella learns about Edward's family.
His "parents" are Carlisle and Esme. His brothers are Emmett and Jasper, and his sisters are Rosalie and Alice. Emmett and Rosalie are in love, so are Jasper and Alice. Jasper can both feel and manipulate the emotions of those around him. Alice has premonitions, and can hazily see pieces of the future.
Bella also learns that unlike the Cullen coven, vampires are usually nomads. The Cullens are one of only two covens that they know of that do not feed on humans. They jokingly call themselves "vegetarians".
Edward also dispels the myths that they sleep in coffins and have no reflections. However, he says that they truly can't go out in sunlight the Forks area is almost always rainy. However, that is not because the sun harms them. Edward refuses to tell Bella what happens when he goes out in sunlight, but promises to show her someday. Now that they are being completely truthful with each other, their relationship begins to turn to romance as the two find they have deep feelings for each other, rather obsessive.
However, they never so much as touch hands, Edward makes sure of that.
One day, Edward tells her that the sun will be coming out that weekend, and he wanted to show her a place he loves up in the mountains.
Enthusiastically, she agrees to go with him, though she doesn't know where. However, as the appointed day nears, Edward tells her to reconsider going with him, warning her of the danger of being alone with him far from help - from witnesses.
Undaunted, Bella tells Charlie and her friends that she is going shopping in Seattle that day. After Edward comes to pick her up this news infuriates him. He makes it clear that he does not trust himself to not harm her. However, Bella wants to prove her faith in him, and they continue. In Bella's slow-moving truck as she insisted they drive to the base of a trail, and they hike for three hours until they reach the edge of the most beautiful meadow Bella has ever seen.
Bella runs out into the measow, and turns to watch him enter the sunlight. When he does, his skin sparkles as if millions of tiny diamonds were embedded in his skin. They lie down next to each other, and for the first time try touching faces, holding hands, etc.
Edward always seems to be concentrating on self-control. At one point Bella leans too close, and he leaps up and runs to the edge of the clearing. Slowly coming back, he explains that it is hard for him to stave off his animal instincts, though he loves her, he is always tempted to kill her. The day that they first met, his expression was not disgust, but rather thirst. Her blood smelled better to him than any other.
Then taunting her, proclaimng the fact that he is the perfect predator his looks, his smell, his inate charm, everything draws humans into their doom , he demonstrates his vampire strength and speed by circling the meadow in the blink of an eye, and snapping a giant limb from a tree and throwing it. Seeing her fear, his face falls. Apologizing sadly for his rudeness he lies back down beside her, and tries to describe what it's like to be near her.
Explaining how maddeningly intoxicating and irrisistably delicious she smells to him and he has super senses , he says the iconic line: "You are exactly my brand of heroin", and lies his head on her chest, listening to her heart.
The sun begins to set, and they reluctantly head for home. Edward suddenly enthusiastically throws her on his back and runs down the mountain at a blinding speed, reaching the road in minutes. This so dizzies Bella that back at the truck she falls over and has to sit for a while to avoid being sick. Edward laughs and apologizes, sitting beside her. When she has recovered herself, he leans in and kisses her for the first time.
She responds wildly and kisses him back passionately. He hastily pushes her away, and then it is her turn to apologize. So, in a bittersweet mood, they fire up the old red truck and head back to town. Not wanting to part just yet, Bella asks Edward to stay. After Charlie goes to bed, he sneaks in her window.
They lie on her bed holding each other. Embarrassed and sheepish, she asks if he finds her sexually attractive. He laughs and replies "I may not be human, but I am a man. Edward tells her that vampires cannot sleep, but that he will stay with her as she sleeps. In the morning, he takes her to meet his family. He is amazed when she tells him that despite the fact she is about to walk into a house full of vampires, she is scared they won't like her, not afraid for her life.
The Cullen house is out in the woods, and dbeautiful. Edward explains that the reason that the Cullens are rich is because Alice is so good at predicting the stock market. The entire family is waiting for her inside, and hey all love her at once, and she is welcomed as practically a member of the family.
Esme is especially delighted that Edward has found someboddy to love, she being very motherly. Only Rosalie doesn't like her which is unexplained until the sequal "New Moon". Jasper, though friendly, stays far from her because he still has trouble staying on the "vegitarian" diet. Edward plays a lullabye he wrote for her on the Cullen's grand piano. Edward gives Bella a short tour of the house, stopping by Carlisle's room more of an office since he doesn't sleep.
On the walls are many pictures from all different time periods. Edward asks Carlisle to tell his history, and Carlisle tells Edward to tell it, since he knows it as well as he. Pointing to a painting of old London, Edward tells of how Carlisle lived in the s in England, the son of a very self-righteous religious leader that busied himself hunting down "evil". Carlisle was a disapointment because he was slow to accuse people without solid proof.
One night while hunting down vampires that were actually real for once, he was cornered and attacked. However, the vampire being weak nearly to the point of being crippled, it couldn't finish the job before slinking away. Carlisle managed to hide from those who would have killed him upon finding he had been bitten. When the change was complete, he wandered the countryside, refusing his thirst out of the pure goodness of his heart. However, one day he realized he could feed on animals, and had been ever since.
Next, Edward pointed to a painting of Renaissance Italy. There were four figures, all looking like Gods, one very much like Carlisle. He explains that Carlisle stayed with these patrons of the arts for a while: Marcus, Caius, and Aros. These characters are intoduced in the next book in the series.
However, he left them because he couldn't stand their blood-soaked and ruthless lifestyles. Eventually, Carlisle ended up in America, and discovered his talent for being a doctor. Becoming extremely lonely over the years, he had been contemplating creating a companion.
During the Spanish Influenza epidemic in the s, Carlisle came across a dying 17 yr. His mother, also dying suddenly gripped Carlisle, and begged Carlisle to save her son - inexplicably insinuating that she knew what Carlisle could really do. When she died, Carlisle wheeled Edward to the morgue, and bit him.
From then on, Edward had been his son and closest friend. Edward also told of the other Cullen's histories. Esme jumped off a cliff after having lost a baby.
Carlisle fell in love with her, and changed her. Rosalie was bleeding to death in an alley when Edward and Carlisle came upon her explained in the third book. Later, Rosalie was out in the mountains and found Emmet mauled by a bear. Loving him at once, she carried him all the way back to Carlisle, afraid that she wouldn't be able to change him. Carlisle did not change Jasper or Alice. The pair wandered into the area one day, Alice said she had seen a vision of them, and they wanted to live the Cullen lifestyle.
Jasper was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War when he was made a vampire. Oddly, Alice has no recollection of when or where she came from, a total mystery to this day. Edward also ashamedly tells of a time when he went through a rebelious stage, and left Carlisle to hunt humans. He tried to feed on only "bad" people, like murderers, but one day he looked in the mirror, saw his dark, blood red eyes, and penitantly returned to his father. In Edward's room, Bella claims to Edward that she was not afraid of him.
Seeing through this, he teases "You really shouldn't have said that", and pounces on her, landing on top of her on his couch. Just then, Alice and Jasper burst in, and Alice announces that there will be a thunderstorm that evening, so the Cullens would be able to play baseball without the sound of their equally thunderous batting drawing attention.
Bella tags along. They take Emmett's jeep up a road until it ends, then the vampires run. Left behind by the others, Edward tells Bella to get on his back, but remembering how sick she felt last time, she refuses.
Leaning her agaisnt the jeep he kisses her softly until she agrees, then kisses her hard once, and like their first kiss he has to stave her off.
Making it clear that he is far from completely mastering his self-control around her, he exclaims she'll be the death of him, then slings her up, and they run to join the others in another clearing. Bella and Esme as referee watch the others play baseball, and all is well until suddenly Alice halts the game, warning that other vampires are on their way Three vampire nomads - Laurent, James, and Victoria - enter the clearing and are intrigued by the gathering.
Zeroing in on Bella, they ask if the Cullens will share their "snack". When Edward moves protectively to sheild Bella, James, the Tracker, notices. Now it is too late, this is what James loves: a challenge.
To save Bella, the Cullens split up. Jasper and Alice will take Bella to Phoenix the idea being that James would not expect her to go where she said she was going , Esme changes clothes with Bella and along with Rosalie will try to draw James off, and Emmett, Edward, and Carlisle will hunt James down - though Carlisle abhors violence he sees no other way.
Bella stops by home, Edward telling her she only has moments to grab some things, and make an excuse to Charlie why she must leave so that he won't worry and search for her. It breaks her heart, but she must break his heart. She shreiks at him that she hates it here, and is going back to her true home, even throwing in the last words her mother had said to him before he left him.
Sobbing on Alice's shoulder, she falls asleep as Jasper drives the three of them to Pheonix. I'm just gonna go ahead and let Stephen King take this one: Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend. She is aware of the hero the teenage girl wants and the heroine the teenage girl wants to pretend she is. When I first re As do most of the other girls on the planet, I imagine. Hell - even grown women.
She is still the antichrist though. Aug 12, R. Kitt rated it really liked it. When this first came out, I was young youngER, anyway and easily influenced. Okay, so it wasn't like I immediately jumped the vampire bandwagon and started sticking posters of a shirtless Taylor Lautner all over my bedroom walls, but I DID think that it was a great series. Well, it's not a BAD series either. It's good the first time around; then you read it again and you realize how annoying all the characters are.
The best thing I can say about it is that the action scenes the very, very mini When this first came out, I was young youngER, anyway and easily influenced.
The best thing I can say about it is that the action scenes the very, very minimal action scenes weren't all that bad. In all honesty, it could have been a good story if it wasn't Meyer who wrote it. Bella really grated on my nerves. She spends the majority of the first few chapters whining about living in Forks if she sent HERSELF there I don't know why she's complaining so much, she can only blame herself , and describing herself as "non-athletic, slender but soft, with clear and translucent skin".
That's kind of ridiculous; don't get me started on the fact that ALL human skin is technically translucent. Bella insists she's not pretty, yet no less than three guys immediately jump in to flirt with her in awkward high school ways, and from what Edward said, "that's not what every single male in the school was thinking". If that isn't a shout-out to all Mary Sue traits, then I don't know what is.
Bella spends half of every book swooning and gushing over his goregeous, angel-like model looks, worrying over how plain she is next to him, and how he's so rich and it makes her feel awkward. Yet she reacts with hostility towards Jacob when he mentions this and says she loves him , not his looks or money.
Right, Bella. Edward himself is an unlikeable hero. He is so perfect, he doesn't even react negatively when Bella admits she loves another man. I'm sorry, but Just no. I have no words for this. Besides the outrageously perfect characters, you would think a series filled with bloodlusting vampires and tension between werewolves would be full of action or at LEAST a punch or two somewhere.
Meyer gave us several hundred pages of suspense in the last book, only to completely destroy our expectations when the heroes solve their problems with the Volturi At several points in the series Meyer attempted to use long, difficult words to make the book more adult, probably with the hope that tween girls would skip them rather than run to the dictionary, because most of those words were used incorrectly and in the wrong context.
This itself is one problem I cannot ignore. All authors should have this unspoken rule: This series is, while perfectly for fine for girls wanting PGlevel sexual tension and an entire cast of sexy, gorgeous, shirtless people, go ahead.
But when the story destroys all vampire cliches in the worst way possible sparkles? Jun 27, Bethany Lois rated it really liked it. Book 1: Keeping in mind the target audience and not expecting great literary depth, I highly enjoyed the book. The depth of love between the main characters is a bit unsupported and unbelievable in the first book, but it is a fantasy after all.
My least favorite of the 4 books. I felt like Bella was slow to come to conclusions I'd come to early on in the book. It was a Book 1: It was a bit frustrating to wait out. If this book disappoints, hang in there, the 4th is by far the best.
The next chapter, a lot more action in this one. This book had a few more twists and turns and is able to go into so much more depth due to the background knowledge of the first 2 books. Book 4: By far the best of the 4 books.
Felt more lengthy compared to the first 3 with so much more story packed into the book. This book could easily have been split into two. Probably why the movie was split into two parts.
They read my mind. More character development and some twists and turns. Jan 23, Ivana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nothing beats the amazing franchise that is The Twilight Saga. Though we all have an image of what Edward and Bella look like if we were to read it now but it still doesn't take away from the glorious vampiric world that Stephenie Meyer created. However there are a select group out there who read this before the big film adaptations came along.
Before the days of Pattinson and Stewart and Lautner. Before Team Edward and Team Jacob though that was around in its own way. The beauty of reading it b Nothing beats the amazing franchise that is The Twilight Saga. The beauty of reading it before the casting was you had your own idea of what the characters looked like and that is the great thing about books. You have your imagination to take you into these worlds.
For me, I was entranced from Page of 1 of the first Twilight book about this meek, clumsy girl named Bella told in first perspective so I immediately projected myself into Bella and saw the world through her eyes and the day she encountered that mysterious and charming man that would change her life forever. The beautiful Edward Cullen. The journey of these two through four books and the supporting characters is just phenomenal and I loved it.
Not a bad word about any of the books. Though I was greatly saddened to see the end and to read the last ever page. It was like taking a long awaited breath and seeing the rollarcoaster ride you took. It was sad to end but it was time. So if you haven't read it, shame on you. Though these days I think they are a rare breed ; particularly if you happen to be a fan of Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart or Taylor Lautner.
My brain has been a bit burnt out recently, so I felt like reading something a bit lighter, and I was curious about the Twilight Saga having heard a great deal about the sexual connotations of the vampire narratives and the link to preservation of virginity movements in the USA. The books were jolly good page turners. I initially thought that it was interesting how Bella was presented as just an ordinary teenage girl with nothing really special about her.
The best bits of the books were linked t My brain has been a bit burnt out recently, so I felt like reading something a bit lighter, and I was curious about the Twilight Saga having heard a great deal about the sexual connotations of the vampire narratives and the link to preservation of virginity movements in the USA. The best bits of the books were linked to mythology and Native American legends; these stories were very compelling. Edward is the gallant hero who must exercise self-control, an old fashioned figure from another age, but there is something rather disturbing about the potential that he always has to hurt Bella.
This is a little reminiscent of the old myth about domestic violence - "he never meant to hurt me" - which is brought out disturbingly when Bella and Edward finally have sex in the final book, Breaking Dawn. There are many examples like this throughout the saga, e. Bella punches Jacob and breaks her hand. The threat of violence and violation seems to crop up a great deal in the books from the first novel where Bella is nearly raped by a group of human men, to the rape revenge story of the vampire Rosalie's origins.
Oct 09, Shawna Scott rated it liked it. The Twilight Saga is undeniably one of my guilty pleasures. I know there are many people out there who have called the entire saga stupid, and there are many parts of each of these books and especially the movies where I could see where they were coming from.
But it is entertaining, and kind of romantic. I think Breaking Dawn is the very best of the four volumes, and Renesmee, the daughter of The Twilight Saga is undeniably one of my guilty pleasures. I think Breaking Dawn is the very best of the four volumes, and Renesmee, the daughter of Edward and Bella, is a cute little half-human, half vampire kid. Vampire Bella, as opposed to human Bella is also pretty intense.
The Twilight Saga, while not a thing to be taken seriously and will never be as good a fantasy tale as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or the Chronicles of Narnia , is still an entertaining wish fulfillment saga with a supernatural twist, which is just what it's supposed to be. Mar 14, Nyanya rated it did not like it. I tore through this series in sixth grade, ignoring awful aspects, so I could squeal about how great it was. I reread afterwards and felt incredibly stupid.
Her writing is not nearly at the level I appreciate most and I felt guilty for calling her amazing.

The love-sick fans will probably get all pissy at me, others may or may not understand until they read it themselves, and I can't force people to change their opinions.
Because after all, all these reviews are opinions and those should be respected even if one disagrees. Apr 18, Lulu Obaditch rated it really liked it Shelves: Set in rainy Forks, Washington, this book is all but boring. Stephenie Meyer paints a beautiful scene for the reader throughout these amazing four books.
While some may think that the idea of a vampire, human, werewolf love story is ridiculous, this is worth reading. Meyer has created a wonderful and thrilling love story, while also making it interesting and original. After you Set in rainy Forks, Washington, this book is all but boring. After you start reading the first book, you want to know more about Bella, Edward, Jacob, and the Cullen family. I love the way Meyer introduces the characters their backstories, gifts, and personalities.
I felt that it was an easy read, while still having an exciting plot line. I'll be honest. I read these books because my daughter and my students were reading it and I like to be able to intelligently converse with them about things that are important to them. Remember,that Edward and the I'll be honest. Remember,that Edward and the Cullens are "good" and don't seek to harm humans at all.
Jun 08, Caitlin Jane rated it did not like it. Promotes domestic abuse: May 15, Alli rated it it was amazing. Excellent series!
One of my favorites. So much better than the movies. Jul 07, Joolissa rated it it was ok Shelves: I finally broke down and read the series If I hadn't seen the terrible movies first I probably would have read them sooner. The movies are sooooo much worse and I'll admit that I read it straight through and then promptly turned back to book 1 read the whole series again a second time.
I also read all of the extras and the unfinished bit of her re-write of the first book from Edwards perspective, which is better than the original! The books get progressively better Twilight The books get progressively better in quality from The first two generally drive me insane and the last two I like better, the writing does improve as well, but it isn't even as good as Rowling.
I think she's better than Paolini's first book or two, but his writing improved as well. Unfortunately the series ends feeling rather unfinished, kind of as if Rowling had ended HP on the 5th or 6th book and Meyer's is being a bit of a jerk about not finishing the rewrite of the first book ala Edward POV because it was leaked.
All her diehard fans are chomping at the bit to download it and she's whining about it being leaked! But I digress. The concepts in Twilight are interesting, well at least some of them. I enjoyed the different, species of vampires the Romanians vs. Jacob was nice when he wasn't being really annoying.
I enjoyed Renesme and all that. I like the conflict between the different powers in the vampire world, etc, but all of that is offset by horribly annoying things.
Myers has huge theory holes that bug the crap out of me, such as if they can't wear contacts very long because their tears dissolve the contacts and generally all bodily fluids have some sort of toxicity then how things like kissing, and That's only one example too.
I'd have to keep a running tally as I read to get them all down, but this is something I nit pick about when I read. As for the relationship betwteen Bella and Edwards, that's what really gets me because it's freaking ridiculous! And it's teaching young susuptible girls that, among other things, a guy who breaks into your room to watch you sleep is romantic. Really that's what bugs me about the series the most is that Edward's and Bella's and even Jacob's behavior is not only really annoying and unrealistic, but it's now what every Twilight Tweenie Bopper fan and some ladies too want.
I know some people disagree with me on that, heck I disagree with people that Harry Potter is going to turn the younger generation to Satanism, but it's a lot easier for someone to "fall in love" with a controlling stalker than it is for them to get into real black magic.
However, I don't think it'd be a problem for those who have a firm grasp on what is fantasy and how stupid, detrimental, and dangerous some of the behavior in this book would be in real life. Still, for all it's faults, the book plays straight to those deep dark or not so deep and dark fantasies and day dreams that girls have and perhaps some guys too and that makes the whole thing a lot like crack. That's what it really is, emotional crack. What girl hasn't thought herself the Plain Jane and dreamed of a handsom boy who has a dark side but is really sweet finding her and becoming utterly devoted to her?
That's what Twilight's basic premis is. It makes you feel warm and fuzzy when the vampires aren't ripping each other apart and it makes you sigh wistfully and cry a time or two when you're not laughing your head off because Meyers once again used the phrase "alabaster brow" which for me conjures up visions of Anne of Green Gable's ridiculous stories about Counts and Damsels! So in summary Twilight is crack and you're either an open addict, a closet addict, a recreational user, a guilty pleasure user, or a hater.

I fall somewhere between guilty pleasure and hater, but most times I play on the Team Wooden Steak side since most everybody drools over it and thinks it's so serious. I also have a bit of a grudge against it because it has forever ruined the names Edward and Jacob, both of which I adore and can no longer really use for any pets or kids or characters of my own.
Dec 25, Sally rated it really liked it. Phoenix girl Bella moves to Forks in Washington state to live with her divorced dad. Falls in love with Edward who she discovers is a vampire. I had a hard time with this book, it was easy to read, but I did not like the weak female lead Bella who had to be saved numerous times contrasted with the super-everything-vampire.
To be fair, the idea of turning the vampire myths on its head was great! So while not the best book in the series, I didn't dislike it enough to make me stop 1 - Twilight. So while not the best book in the series, I didn't dislike it enough to make me stop reading!
Edward's vampire family puts Bella in danger so he decides to leave. Bella is befriended by Jacob who it turns out is a werewolf - the sworn enemy of vampires.
Conceptually the problem for me with this novel is two-fold. First, that someone has a secret and Bella has to use her wits to figure it out herself sort of like Book 1 but with Jacob instead of Edward. It felt like a repeat to me. Secondly, that she would put herself in danger just to "hear" Edwards voice, it was difficult to accept. I think the last section of the book with the Volturi was very entertaining and redeemed the book in my eyes.
Jacob and Edward team up to protect Bella against a common enemy - a vampire who wants to take revenge on Edward for killing her mate, by killing Bella.
I found this book entertaining because it showed up some of the rivalry between Jacob and Edward for Bella's affections and how they worked together for Bella. I enjoyed this book more than the first two, and by this time, I accepted the fact that Edward was so noble.
Bella also has a special ability as a vampire and is able to protect her family. I enjoyed the wrapup to the series immensely. However, the series had a happy ending.
The Twilight Saga
While no literary series, the story was very entertaining. In hindsight, adult me finds it hard to stomach a female protagonist who gets into trouble all the time and has to be saved.
And by the way, I don't how many ways there are to say someone is perfect Edward , but the author sure tried. May 03, Jana rated it did not like it Shelves: Anything that gets people to read more is a plus for me. This is my brief opinion over the four books, which I've combined here I could discuss them in more depth, but I'm behind on my reviews, so I'll keep it short.
This is just my opinion. This more or less applies to the series as a whole.
I had no idea what I was getting into when I picked up this plotless book full of stereotypes particularly the character that represents the author herself. If vampires are so good and sparkly, why wouldn't everyone that knows about them want to be turned into a vampire? Edward hints at a reason in the first book or two possible loss of soul but it's never followed through.
So what is the downside? Why not rid the world of the human race and all be sparkly vampires or werewolves or some type of bizarre hybrid. So unless you are of the werewolf tribe, why not be turned? Super strength, beauty, poise and grace, etc --Plus they get supernatural powers! Yes, I've read the entire series mainly to know what my students were reading, but also to see just how bad it would get.
The second one when Edward leaves over a papercut taught me I, a female, am nothing without a man, particularly one that sneaks in and just watches me sleep. After Nessie is born, it seems like Bella and Edward are too busy with, uhm, recreational activities to take care of her.
So I guess being a nanny is the sole point of Rosalie's character other than to be one more person that is jealous of special snowflake Bella and to be a mate for an irresistible Cullen. Let's gather everyone for a giant battle that, rather anticlimactically, never takes place. To show how special Bella is, I guess. That was certainly a unique way to solve a love triangle without any long term broken hearts.
I've read a lot, and I can't say I've seen that one used before. Sep 24, Megan rated it it was amazing. The entire Twilight Saga was a great series. My favorite was the first book because it is all about how they met and I just find it the most interesting.
I think the theme throughout all of the books was love and sacrafice. Of course in each book they have other small themes. In the first book one theme would be everlasting love, because Bella falls in love with Edward even though he is a vampire.
And in the third book a theme could be Good vs Bad because the Cullens try to kill all the bad vamp The entire Twilight Saga was a great series.
And in the third book a theme could be Good vs Bad because the Cullens try to kill all the bad vampires. I think the subject of the book was to show that anyone can fall in love.

I think that Stephanie Meyer wrote this book because she wanted to write a love story but with an unusual twist. It was mainly to entertain. These books were an overall success because they have been made into million dollar movies and are a household name. I think Stephanie Meyer is a great author. I don't believe she has written any other books but I know as a matter of fact that they would be good. She has great abilities as an author.
She uses great discription. She uses foreshadowing and she even leaves you hanging a couple of times. According to some reviews of her books people say that her books are highly entertaing and that it is very easy to become engrossed in them.
When you start reading them you completely forget about what's going on around you and just want to finish the book. It is also so intriguing because it is not your typical love story. It is between two different creatures. People also like how it is always in a first person point of view. All together I thouroly enjoyed this book series and would read anything like it again.
I most definitely reccomend it if your are the kind of person who likes a mix between love stories and a little something extra.
