DescriptionBella?' 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.

Reviews for Eclipse
Better Than New Moon But Not as Good as Twilight
Eclipse was a lot better than New Moon plot-wise, but I wish the whole Bella x Edward x Jacob didn't exist.
This is just about me, personally, but I hate love triangles. I know other people do, too. I don't believe a person can LOVE two people in the same time. Crush, be attracted to... yes. But not love.
Some books manage to make it in a way I don't mind the love triangle that much. Unfortunately, Eclipse is not one of these cases.
Considering the Twilight Saga deals with the supposedly ultimate love between Edward and Bella, it's even more aggravating that Meyer chose to push this series into a love triangle. How can you expect us to believe, as we did in Twilight, that these two truly have the purest and deepest love, if Bella herself doesn't seem so sure of that? In fact, she's so unsure she falls for another guy.
I didn't stomach this well, to say the least.
I also found Bella's behavior infuriating; for someone who basically gave up living the moment Edward was out of her life, she is very... fickle.
Also, this book just emphasizes how useless Bella is - the only thing she's good for is... bait?! I wish she was stronger, more meaningful.
As for Edward... I still love the guy--hard to erase the major crush I got on him the first book, despite everything he had done since--but he, too, could afford to be more headstrong. I mean, his girl kinda cheats on him and he's as calm about it as can be - because he 'brought it on himself'. I mean, yes - he did. But, dude, show some emotion about it!
With all me saying that, Eclipse still had one of my most favorite scenes in the whole book and I did enjoy this book.
Upon closer inspection, this book did have many things I disliked, but I enjoyed reading it regardless. by Nitzan Schwarz

Keeps you hooked!
I have read all Stephenie Meyer's books of the Twilight Saga series and they are all fantastic! I am so hooked on vampires and werewolves now that I just bought the True Blood book series. Keep in mind I'm no Twihard. I'm a 31 year old woman with 2 kids. I scoffed at all these people going crazy over vampires and werewolves...laughed at them,then got curious and started reading...I'm so glad I did as they were very addictive. I enjoyed all the books. I felt like a lovestruck teenager again. 10/10! by Karen
Possibly the most exciting so far in the Twilight series. Each character had been polished, developed and deepen.
Includes history of Jasper and Rosalie how they ended up and stayed with the Cullen's. In this book it tells about the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob. Having escaped near death experiences Bella is now faced and hunted by terrifying newborn vampires created by Victoria (who holds a grudge against Bella for being the cause James's death.)
A page turner, kept me up most of many nights I just can't put the book down. Much improved compared to New Moon, this book has it all excitement, romance, emotion, edge and action! I can't wait to read the next and the last book of the series! by R.D-Diaz
Wow, another page turner. A simple love story that's simply so surreal. I've never read any other romance novels and Meyer's seriously making me regret for not immersing myself more into romantic english literature 20 yrs ago at high school. This series is so good that i'm sad to be moving onto the final book next. If u've only read Twilight book 1, then u're missing out on more Twilighting. Btw, Meyer's writing skill improves with every book, and of course her storytelling style is as good as always. by Kim
This book is probably the most emotional of the series. With the lives of dozens of other vampires in danger (you'll definitely need the list provided at the back of the book to keep track of all the new characters), the stakes are higher than ever. It's easy to understand the motives for the sacrifices the characters are forced to make, and the plot twists and constant action will definitely keep you up late flipping all 756 pages. Besides, despite the danger, the book isn't always serious. Emmett has plenty of irritating-big-brother jokes at the newlyweds' expense, and it's fun to see Bella finally be able to kick some butt as a "newborn." Overall, reading Breaking Dawn was a pleasure. Stephenie Meyer is great at what she does, great at writing for her audience, and if you can recognize that, can see that this book is exactly what it is meant to be and not expect more from it, you'll love it. The instant cash that I used on this book was worth it. Now that it is on sale, many fans will try to grab copies. by Sylvia E.
