Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella could care less about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarries and Bella decides to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn’t expect anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she’s ever met. He’s nothing like anyone she’s ever met, period. He’s intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Unorthodox because Edward really isn’t like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn’t aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he’s immortal.
That’s right, VAMPIRE. But he doesn’t have fangs; that’s just in the movies. And he doesn’t drink human blood…though Edward and his family are unique among vampires in that lifestyle choice.
For Edward, Bella is the soulmate he has waited ninety years for. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy.
Somehow, they will have to make their unorthodox romance work. But what will they do when Laurent, Victoria, and James (other vampires who aren’t like the Cullens) come to town, looking for trouble? Can they save Bella from certain death? Or will they be too late… [imdb]
