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.

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.

I really enjoyed this book in the context of the series, but it is the only one of the four that cannot stand alone as a great piece. It is well written and interesting, but it is very obvious that its just filling in some blanks between New Moon and Breaking Dawn, you keep waiting for things to happen and most of them don't occur till Breaking Dawn. Definitly worth the read in context of the other books, definitly needed for them to flow well, just don't expect it to be as exciting as the other three novels.

I really liked the 3rd installment of the Twilight Saga. you really get to see the other charaters ie Jasper come alive, and the story shows that any two persons can come together and forget their differences and prejudices when they have a common enemy or goal. such is the case for Edward and Jake in their quest to protect Bella above all else. All in all it was a good read.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-08-20 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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
