If you have devoured every word of Twilight, the immensely popular vampire series by Stephenie Meyer, then get ready to dive back into the love story of Bella and Edward… but this time, you’ll be hearing from the vampire’s point of view.
In this long anticipated follow up, Midnight Sun is told through the eyes of Edward Cullen, the centenarian vampire with 17-year-old good looks whose love for the very human Bella is the most intriguing – and unnerving – event he has ever experienced in all his years as a vampire.
While Midnight Sun is still the Edward and Bella love story, we learn more of the fascinating details about Edwards past, the complexity of his inner thoughts, and how he deals with the extreme conflicts in his love for her.
The draw Edward feels towards Bella is so magnetic and his struggle against his feelings is palpable. He is both attracted to Bella for her desirable blood, but he also falls truly in love with this extraordinarily beautiful woman. Additionally, we get a glimpse of Bella we haven’t seen before, an outsider’s view of her character and intellect, and the true beauty of her innocent, pure kindness.
Meyer writes about Edwards struggles while building the tension in the kind of storytelling Twilight fans love. He continues to stalk Bella, and sneaks into her bedroom to watch her sleep. We also get a new look at his powerful relationship with his sister, Alice, who is also a vampire with a gift of seeing into the future. Alice shows Edward there are only two fates that lie before Bella. Either she will die by his hands or she will be changed into a vampire. But in Midnight Sun, it becomes clear that Bella is a woman who knows what she wants. And, even with Alice’s omniscience, Edward knows he must fight to keep Bella alive while he is with her.
Stephenie Meyer has written Midnight Sun with her biggest fans in mind! It’s an unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes, one that takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. One that you won’t be able to put down!
Twilight books have sold over 100 million copies worldwide and Midnight Sun sold more than 1 million copies in the first week of its release. It became an international bestseller immediately.
