The other main character on the Twilight series, Edward is described as a handsome and youthful vampire with ice-cold, impossibly pale skin, lustrous bronze hair and deep red eyes. He has been described as a modern version of a god-like Adonis. He struggles most with his relationship to Bella, as he sees himself endangering her in. Extremely sensitive and protective, he acts as a foil to the more stubborn and risk taking Bella, who, being still a teenager, has all the hallmarks and stubbornness of adolescence.
Introduced in the first novel, he becomes more and more important as the series continues, and in the second and third novels, New Moon and Eclipse, becomes central to the plot.
He is a werewolf, a descendant of the Quileute tribe, and as such can control the transformation of himself into a large wolf. He is described as being dark, with a darker complexion and dark brown eyes, and jet black hair.
Above average height and muscular, he transforms into a wolf and becomes a rusty colored wolf of abnormal size as well as strength. His relationship with Bella is a key plot point in both New Moon and Eclipse, with a romantic undercurrent felt very strongly by Jacob, but not reciprocated by Bella.
He Distrusts and dislikes Edward, whom he thinks is not good enough for Bella, and their relationship is another source of tension for the novels. The novels explore such lofty themes as eternal love, abandonment, and non-traditional relationships.
Stephanie Meyer has often stated that, while she did not specifically pen the books with the background of her own faith, that the message of non-sexual love and abstinence is there and in keeping with the doctrine of her church.
The novels have been overwhelmingly popular, with New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn all reaching number one on numerous bestseller list.
All four novel were also adapted in five movies, beginning with Twilight in , and finishing with Breaking Dawn Part 2 in The films were typically well received, with fans of the series exuberant about the adaptations and eagerly awaiting the next installment with bated breath.
While the story of Edward and Bella has been brought to a spectacular end with the at the ending of Breaking Dawn, there have been many rumors of the continuation of the series.
Stephanie Meyer has debunked these rumors on many occasions, with the reasoning behind the closure of the series being that the story has already been told, and that she wanted to concentrate on other projects.
Either way, the Twilight series is a modern romantic love story, with elements of wondrous fantasy and enchanting, muted horror. For instance, Twilight vampires have strong piercing teeth rather than fangs; they glitter in sunlight rather than burn; and they can drink animal as well as human blood. Meyer comments that her vampire mythology differs from that of other authors because she wasn't informed about the canon vampires, saying, It wasn't until I knew that Twilight would be published that I began to think about whether my vampires were too much the same or too much different from the others.
Of course, I was far too invested in my characters at that point to be making changes Montgomery 's Anne of Green Gables series are a big influence on her writing. It doesn't matter where you're stuck in life or what you think you have to do; you can always choose something else.
There's always a different path. In particular, she says that her characters "tend to think more about where they came from, and where they are going, than might be typical.
Meyer says that she does not consciously intend her novels to be Mormon-influenced, or to promote the virtues of sexual abstinence and spiritual purity, but admits that her writing is shaped by her values, saying, "I don't think my books are going to be really graphic or dark, because of who I am.
There's always going to be a lot of light in my stories. The dream was about a human girl, and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood. Based on this dream, Meyer wrote the transcript of what is now chapter 13 of the book.

In total, it spent over 50 weeks on the list. She stated that Twilight was the only book that she planned to rewrite from Edward's perspective. Meyer has since put these twelve chapters on her website so that her fans could read them for free,  but has put the project on hold indefinitely due to her feelings about the situation.
She stated, If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn't dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely. The reimagined novel has a more conclusive ending, seemingly precluding its continuation through the remaining three Twilight novels.
While the books have become immensely popular, they have also generated much controversy. Positive reception Twilight has gathered acclaim for its popularity with its target readers.

Rowling , Stephen King said, "the real difference [between Rowling and Meyer] is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer, and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good. It's exciting and it's thrilling and it's not particularly threatening because it's not overtly sexual.
