Series: Twilight Saga (Book 3)
Synopsis: '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, 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?
Review: My favourite book of the series, it has a bit of everything - love, hate, drama, action, and lots of angst. With Bella having to sneak off to see Jake due to Edwards disapproval, things are tense in Forks, which of course is not helped by Victoria's continuing desire to murder Bella in revenge. Things come to a head when Bella is forced to chose, does she want vampire Edward, or werewolf Jacob?
I like how this book is mainly about indecision. Does Bella want to be vampire or human, with Edward or Jake? You really feel how torn Bella feels throughout the book, and you feel her pain once the decision is made. This tends to be the book that divides fans, half want Bella to be with Edward and half with Jake. Whilst I can see how cute Bella and Jake are, I'm definitely in the Bella and Edward camp, they are a great couple.
