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 quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?
I have a feeling my review for Eclipse is going to be similar for my review to New Moon. I still adore Twilight, but my love for this franchise is being lowered by the pure length of these books. Honestly, I kind of understand why they’re so long – the movies are obvious evidence of what happens when they are shortened…but there does appear to be a lot of back and forth.
In the end, Bella seems very confused. I know that’s the point of the book, but it can get a little drawn out and frustrating when she simply can’t decide in her own head what even SHE wants to happen.
The thing I’ve always admired about these books is the ability for the reader to feel close to Bella – and I still did in this book…just not quite as much as I have before. So unfortunately, I’m going to have to give this book…
