Eclipse (Twilight Saga #3 )by Stephenie Meyer
Synopses & Reviews
Readers captivated by Twilight and New Moon will eagerly devour Eclipse, the much anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's riveting vampire love saga.
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?
"The legions of readers who are hooked on the romantic struggles of Bella and the vampire Edward will ecstatically devour this third installment of the story begun in Twilight, but it's unlikely to win over any newcomers. Jake, the werewolf met in New Moon, pursues Bella with renewed vigilance. However, when repercussions from an episode in Twilight place Bella in the mortal danger that series fans have come to expect, Jake and Edward forge an uneasy alliance. The plot patterns have begun to show here, but Meyer's other strengths remain intact. The supernatural elements accentuate the ordinary human dramas of growing up. Jake and Edward's competition for Bella feels particularly authentic, especially in their apparent desire to best each other as much as to win Bella. Once again the author presents teenage love as an almost inhuman force: '[He] would have been my soul mate still,' says Bella, 'if his claim had not been overshadowed by something stronger, something so strong that it could not exist in a rational world.' According to Meyer, the fourth book should tie up at least the Edward story, if not the whole shebang. Ages 12-up. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Meyer's trilogy seethes with the archetypal tumult of star-crossed passions, in which the supernatural element serves as heady spice." New York Times Sunday Book Review
The author of the New York Times bestsellers Twilight and New Moon delivers the much-anticipated third novel in this engrossing series. As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella Swan once again finds herself surrounded by danger.
