My Reivew:

I was genuinely surprised at how much I liked this book.

Stephanie Meyer has certainly made me love Bella as Beau and Edward as Edythe more than the original characters. Don't get me wrong, I loved the original story, but these characters were developed so much more and were far more interesting. They had more backing, more bone, and more substance.

Well, you know the story of Twilight (well, I'm assuming you do, but then again one should never assume). It was a great love story and made for some great laughs with the whole gender bending. I highly recommend reading this if you are a fan of the Twilight series or vampires in general.

This book is a stand alone. Meyer isn't going to complete the series, so you will find the ending to this book different than the original, but QUITE interesting.

I rather enjoyed it.

5 out of 5!
