Midnight Sun | Stephanie Meyer

Midnight Sun (Twilight Saga #5) by Stephanie Meyer published 04 August 2020

When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.

This unforgettable tale as told through Edward’s eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward’s past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger? 

How was it? Back in the day, when it was announced that Stephanie Meyer had abandoned this book someone sent me the leaked draft to read. I loved the draft, it was everything I had hoped it would be and more.

So I started this book in a very familiar place, it called up memories of the draft, the “Twilight” book, and the movie. I did not need nor did I want to revisit the saga to get back into it. This book was an easy entertaining read, kind of blast from the past. But I have to admit…it is a long ass book. I don’t know if it’s because of the movie but I would often remember my place in the overall story, think I’m close to the end but then a quick page check would let me know that I’m barely halfway through. Despite my perceived length of the book, and the amount of internal dialogue in it, it’s not a boring book.

Midnight Sun is chuck full of additional information and tidbits about Edward, the Cullens, and the Twilight Saga in general but it does make Edward look creepier than he did in the first book and movie. We had shades of it before but here it’s full on stalker.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
