Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret...

I so wanted to LOVE this book but alast I did not. I liked it some but I found a LOT of things that bugged me. 

One: Most of the story was told WAY out of order. 

Two: It's was like, BOOM. Bella moves to forks. Boom. She meets new friends and Edward. BOOM, guess what? Edward is a vampire. BOOM. I am in love after knowing him for a week.... BOOM! Watch me sparkle and run fast. So very cheesey. I totally loved the twilight books, but this one was a bad take on the series.

Three: You barely get to know the rest of Cullen family besides Edward and poor Jacob is in like in TWO scenes throughout the novel. :( I felt this graphic novel was very rushed and makes the story lose it's "SPARKLE". 

[ Yeah, just not in this novel. ]

Other than that I did love the graphics and most scenes were true to the original story. Would I read the next one? Yes, because I am hoping the series will improve as it goes along. 

I liked it a lot. Would recommend. Or would I? Hmm... 0_o
