it was amazing
Read in October, 2008

Wow. This book, the first in a juvenile fiction series about a coven of human-friendly vampires, was amazing. The main character, Bella, is a human teenager who moves to Forks, Washington to be with her father. While there, she spies the handsome, though standoffish, Edward and is immediately attracted. In time, she learns his secret and is swept into danger.

Meyer has created deep characters and portrays them well. She has added new details to vampire mythology, such as the real reason they stay out of the sun. The danger scenario feels real and has surprises, including a resolution that wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Not a true twist, but with a vampire love story, there is always going to be the question of whether or not she'll give up her humanity.

I can't wait to read the next one!
