Teenage vampire love saga continued
A previous post featuring Stephanie Meyer's Twilight made me want to comment upon the latest in Bella and Edward's teen vampire love saga, Eclipse. Edward and Bella have returned from Europe and stepped back into their lives. It seems that everything is going back to normal, but Bella's relationship with Jacob has changed forever due to the hatred between werewolves and vampires, in fact she has been forbidden to see him. Bella's strong desire to be Jacob's friend clashes with Edward's desire to keep Bella safe. She betrays his wishes and begins seeing Jacob. Bella's relationship with Jacob begins a powerful love triangle storyline. Who will Bella choose? Will she agree to marry Edward and be converted to a vampire?
Bella's love life is the main plot line, but Meyer also provides interesting backstory on Rosalie and the werewolves of La Push. This book does not have the action of the previous titles in the series, but the emotional struggles move the plot along at a quick pace. I was extremely upset by Bella's choice in the end, what did you think and how will this effect the next book in the series?
The wait for this book could be a little long, so if you need to satisify your teenage vampire love saga craving try Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith.
