Summary

When Edward came back in the 2nd book of the series, everything started going downhill with Jacob and Bella's relationship. Bella had to choose between Jacob and Edward. Bella of course chose Edward, leaving Jacob upset. Victoria has been trying to come back and kill Bella for quite some time now. But this time she has "given up", and we don't hear much about her for a while until a mysterious visitor goes into Bella's room and takes stuff that has her scent on it. Victoria seems to be behind the whole thing, but no one can tell not even Alice. The mysterious vampires are messing with the holes in Alice's vision. Alice sees a large number of vampires coming into town on their territory over the mountains. This vision causes the vampires and werewolves to work together. Will they be able to work as a team or will their differences and hate for each other mess everything up?

Main Characters

Conflicts

Man vs. Man

The first conflict is between Bella and Victoria. Victoria keeps coming back to Forks, Washington to try and kill Bella. Victoria still hasn't gotten over the fact that Edward killed James. Mate for Mate that's Victoria's motto. When she realized she couldn't get to Bella on her own, she created an army to help her. She used the holes in Alice's vision to go unseen. She went to extremes creating an army, but she knew that in order to get to Bella she would have to get threw the Cullens and the werewolves.

Another conflict is between Edward and Jacob. Jacob wants Bella to love him and not Edward, but Bella loves Edward and Jacob is her best friend, she doesn't like him like that. Jacob said that he wouldn't stop fighting for Bella. Edward said he would fight twice as hard for her, even though Bella is already his.

Stand out quotes


pg. 1 "Black eyes, wild with their fierce craving for my death, watching for the moment when my protector's attention would be diverted. The moment when I would surely die."

Theme

This is a story of sacrifice and love. Bella has to sacrifice some things to keep Jacob and Edward both in her life. The story is also about love, Bella and Edward love each other and the Cullens love Bella and they want her to be apart of her family. They are willing to sacrifice themselves to keep her safe.

Symbolism

Bracelet: The wolf carving and crystal heart on the bracelet.

These stand for Jacob and Edward. The wolf stands for Jacob because he can turn into a werewolf. The crystal heart stands for Edward, it's cold, hard, and shiny in the sun, just like Edward.


Setting


The setting mostly takes place at Bella's house or somewhere with Edward.
