Eclipse, Hardback Book
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


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? Following the international bestsellers Twilight and New Moon, Eclipse is the much-anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's captivating saga of vampire romance.

Review by

Twilight will always be my favorite book. However, with each book in the series the plot declines. I still enjoyed reading Eclipse, more so the climax to the end than any other part (last 150 pages or so). There wasn't any real action. Instead, the book spent the entire time talking about action that was to come. Then finally at the end of the book, the suspense ensues. And it is very good. Meyer does a wonderful job with the action scenes--it's heart stopping.Bella, the main character, didn't have a chance to develop in the book which is a shame. Sure, she was faced with a tough decision but the book made her more of a dependent boy-crazy teenager than anything else. The things she did with Jake I found absurd, and it really lowered her character...a lot. Edward was pushed to the side throughout this book just as he was in New Moon. In this book, he was more of the person to tell Bella how okay it was to be with Jake...he didn't serve a whole lot more of a purpose than that.Still a good book. Just a few minor issues that I had with it. Definitely worth the read and the ending will make you impatient for Breaking Dawn.
