The #1 New York Times Bestseller By Stephenie Meyer
Notable works: Twilight, The Host
The series, charts a period in the life of Isabella "Bella" Swan, a teenage girl who moves to Forks, Washington, and falls in love with a 104-year-old vampire named Edward Cullen. The series is told primarily from Bella's point of view, with the epilogue of Eclipse and Part II of Breaking Dawn being told from the viewpoint of character Jacob Black, a werewolf.
Bree's friend, who eventually falls in love with her and is alluded to be her "mate." He was 18 when he was turned into a vampire. He was trapped in an alley when he killed the leader of a gang who killed his brother. He was rescued by Riley, who offered him a new life.
The leader of the newborns. He gets his orders from Victoria. He is responsible for finding troubled children and bringing them to Victoria so she can change them into vampires.
One of the leaders of a gang of newborns. Bree strongly dislikes him. He seems to have the power to attract people, although this power only seems to work on people who are dimwitted/dumb.
Develops friendship with Bree. Fred has the power to repel others by making them feel repulsed by him. This is an illusion and therefore would not affect Bella. He uses this to keep other newborns away from him. Because of this they call him Freaky Fred.
Victoria gives Riley orders to create an army to battle the Cullen clan plus Bella. She gives directions which includes telling lies to the newborns but she also lies to Riley which is exposed in Eclipse: Victoria pretends to love Riley when she truly loves someone else.
Why you would enjoy the book:
I personally loved the book because it was filled with adventure, it was partly funny and partly dramatic, really enjoyable, lively and amusing to read. The plot was great and entertaining, the characters were well described and the drama was endless.
The twilight series fall under the genre of young adult, fantasy, and romance. That doesn't stop it from being adventurous and lively. The book is well written and enjoyable for everyone to read, male and female.
Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood… life before she became a vampire.
All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don’t draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn’t know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.
Then Bree finds an unexpected friend named Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they only know as her. As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagined, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trust. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?
The story mostly takes place in the street, and the city of Seattle.
Now to read a passage from my book...
The passage tells us ....
Not Everything you are told is true because there is always a bigger story behind someones eyes.
Why this is the Message ...
Riley has told the group many things that aren't true. One of these few things includes burning in the sunlight. Later on however, Diego and Bree found out that is not true. " ' No burn?' ' None. Light doesn't burn, it just... reflects off us. " (48) This line clearly showed that Riley lied to the group to keep them from going out during the day.
We are now at the end of my presentation. I hoped that you enjoyed it and I hope that I made the book/ series sound interesting enough to convince you to read it. It is a great book filled with adventure. thank you for listening and good luck on your presentations.
Lets now get started ...
