Yes, I am a huge Twilight fan. Good, I didn´t start reading the books while the hype was going on. But some years later, I fell in love with the books as much as I later started to love the movies. And it is still true. You either love the Twilight Saga or you don´t. There is no in-between.

"BELLA?"
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, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again. This 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 quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?
Story
Bella and Edward are together whenever possible, even if their father doesn't like it at all. But Bella uses her trump card that she is of legal age, and she also pushes through her wish to finally become a vampire herself. But Edward puts one condition on it. If she wants to be transformed by himself (and she does) then Bella must marry him first, he's old-fashioned and assertive. It's an impossible and terrifying thought for Bella, who grew up realizing that marriage isn't good, especially when you're so young. She is also in a dilemma with her friendship with Jacob and her love for Edward, since the two can't stand each other and are also natural enemies. But if Edward can't take care of Bella, then Jacob must take care of her because Bella is in danger.

Style
Stephenie Meyer understands perfectly how to combine an emotional atmosphere with tension and speed. The created atmosphere is captivating and absolutely enthralling. The love story about Bella and Edward continues with a foreword and the storytelling style from Bella's first-person perspective makes the plot very intense and impressive. The whole plot is easy to read, and although there are some very gory scenes, Stephenie Meyer has once again managed to portray these with feeling and style in a way that is child-friendly and still exciting.

Characters
Stephenie Meyer's characters have evolved in a very compelling and realistic way. They've matured and grown up without losing their individual character traits, and I think that's good. It makes the plot even more exciting and gives the imaginative story a wonderfully realistic touch.

Bella is more determined than ever in this volume, still just as messy and clumsy, and while she knows she can't live without Edward, her feelings for Jacob are a major sore point between her and Edward. She wants both her love for Edward and her deep friendship with Jacob, but that seems impossible. The fact that her father clearly prefers Jacob and expresses this very clearly doesn't help her one bit and when Bella must realize that Jacob knew how deep her feelings for him were long before she did, the pain is huge, and the tears flow Stream.


Conclusion
Eclipse is breathtakingly beautiful to read. Dangers, big feelings, and a lot of conflicts result in a soulful, captivating, and sometimes really dramatic story that is able to inspire young and old alike. The anticipation for the next volume is inevitable.



Happy reading
