"Softly he brushed my
cheek, then held my face between his marble hands. "Be very still,"
he whispered, as if I wasn't already frozen. Slowly, never moving his eyes from
mine, he leaned toward me. Then abruptly, but very gently, he rested his cold
cheek against the hollow at the base of my throat." As Shakespeare knew,
love burns high when thwarted by obstacles. In "Twilight", an exquisite
fantasy by Stephenie Meyer, readers discover a pair of lovers who are supremely
star-crossed. Bella adores beautiful Edward, and he returns her love. But Edward
is having a hard time controlling the blood lust she arouses in him, because -
he's a vampire. At any moment, the intensity of their passion could drive him
to kill her, and he agonizes over the danger. But, Bella would rather be dead
than part from Edward, so she risks her life to stay near him, and the novel burns
with the erotic tension of their dangerous and necessarily chaste relationship.
Meyer has achieved quite a feat by making this scenario completely human and believable. She begins with a familiar YA premise (the new kid in school), and lulls us into
thinking this will be just another realistic young adult novel. Bella has come
to the small town of Forks on the gloomy Olympic Peninsula to be with her father.
At school, she wonders about a group of five remarkably beautiful teens, who sit
together in the cafeteria but never eat. As she grows to know, and then love,
Edward, she learns their secret. They are all rescued vampires, part of a family
headed by saintly Carlisle, who has inspired them to renounce human prey. For
Edward's sake they welcome Bella, but when a roving group of tracker vampires
fixates on her, the family is drawn into a desperate pursuit to protect the fragile
human in their midst.The precision and delicacy of Meyer's writing lifts this
wonderful novel beyond the limitations of the horror genre to a place among the
best of YA fiction.
