Little, Brown & Co., hardback, 629 p.
Twilight series, Book 3
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?What can I say about this book that hasn’t already been said? I’m not nearly as creative as Kim so I’ll keep it short. Guilty pleasure maybe but it was a lot of fun to return to Forks, Washington and the uneasy balance of vampires, werewolves and humans. In this book, the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob took centre stage and I have to admit I really enjoyed the scenes in which Edward and Jacob were verbally sparring with each other. I loved the tent scene!
“You know, Jacob, if it weren’t for the fact that we’re natural enemies and that you’re also trying to steal away the reason for my existence, I might actually like you.”It was certainly cheesy in places but it was such an addictive read! I couldn’t stop turning the pages and flew through all 600 of them in a couple of days. These may not be the kind of books to win any literary awards but it was still a very satisfying story to get lost in for awhile.
