"Unique Twist on the Vampire Premise"

Isabella (Bella) Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her dad. She's not thrilled with the gloomy small town where everyone knows each other. She makes friends easily enough, but one boy, Edward Cullen has caught her attention. She notices Edward and his family are different from the other students: they're the most beautiful people she's ever seen. Their eyes change colors from golden color to black, and they move at an incredible speed. Though Edward is moody and acts as if he doesn't like her, Bella wants to know him better.

Edward tries to stay away from Bella, but finds he can't. Bella's blood calls to him and the allure doesn't stop there. Along with his many other talents, Edward reads minds, but he cannot read Bella's mind. She fascinates him.

Edward reveals his secret to Bella. He and his family are vampires, who feed on animals only. They do not befriend humans so not to be tempted, but for Edward's sake, his family makes an exception with Bella.

Then another Vampire clan shows up and they want Bella for themselves---for a meal that is. Edward and his family will do whatever it takes to keep Bella safe.

This isn't just for young adults. I loved this story. Ms. Meyer has written a believable romance with tension and passion in each kiss, touch and glance. The unique twist on the vampire premise is intriguing, making you want to know more. Don't miss this seductive tale of true love.

*Paperback Reprint*

Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balance precariously on the point of a knife -- between desire and danger. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
