Overview

I fan della saga di Twilight rimarranno affascinati dall’avvincente storia di Bree Tanner, un personaggio incontrato per la prima volta in eclipse, e dal lato più oscuro del mondo dei vampiri neonati che lei abita.

Bree Tanner ricorda appena come fosse la sua vita prima di acquisire dei riflessi sovrumani e un’inesauribile forza fisica. Prima che una sete insaziabile di sangue si impossessasse di lei… prima che qualcuno decidesse di trasformarla in un vampiro.

Tutto quello che Bree sa è che vivere tra i suoi simili comporta poche certezze e ancor meno regole: guardati alle spalle, non attirare l’attenzione e, soprattutto, torna a casa prima dell’alba o morirai. Quel che non sa è che il suo tempo da immortale sta velocemente per scadere.

Ma Bree trova un inaspettato amico in Diego, un vampiro neonato che desidera quanto lei scoprire l’identità della loro creatrice: un essere misterioso che tutti chiamano “lei”. Quando realizzano che i neonati sono semplici pedine su una scacchiera più vasta di quanto non possano immaginare, i due giovani si trovano a dover decidere con chi schierarsi e di chi fidarsi. Ma se tutto ciò che sanno si basa sulla menzogna, sarà realmente possibile giungere alla verità?

In questo irresistibile mix di mystery, suspense e amore, Stephenie Meyer ricostruisce il viaggio dell’esercito che si prepara ad attaccare Bella Swan e i Cullen, fino all’indimenticabile scontro finale che sconvolgerà per sempre le regole degli umani e degli immortali.

Meet the Author

Stephenie Meyer: figlia della borghesia americana degli stati dell’Ovest, Stephenie Meyer si considera una nativa dell’Arizona. Da adolescente frequenta il liceo a Scottsdale (Arizona, appunto), un luogo, afferma lei, in cui le ragazzine si fanno la plastica al naso e nel parcheggio della scuola si trovano per lo più delle Porsche. Si laurea in inglese e ci tiene a sottolineare che il suo interesse si è sempre concentrato sulla letteratura più che sulla scrittura creativa, soprattutto perché ha sempre ritenuto leggere libri un “non lavoro”! Oggi si ricorda di tutte le frasi ironiche che si dicevano a chi si laureava in Inglese, cui si prediceva un futuro nell’industria alimentare dei fast food e, da autrice di bestseller quale oggi è, rinvia una risata beffarda. Stephenie Meyer è sposata da oltre dieci anni e ha tre figli maschi: Gabe, Seth e Eli. Nella formazione letteraria di Stephenie gli autori che hanno avuto su di lei maggiore influenza sono stati, tra gli altri: Orson Scott Card, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, Maeve Binchy, Charlotte Bronte, Daphne DuMaurier, L.M. Montgomery, Louisa May Alcott, Eva Ibbotson, William Goldman, Douglas Adams, Janet Evanovich. Ma oltre agli scrittori, un altra fondamentale fonte d’ispirazione è la musica, “non posso scrivere senza” dice Stephenie, e la musa preferita è il gruppo dei Muse. Oltre a loro, altre band molto amate sono i Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Coldplay, The All American Rejects, Travis, The Strokes, Brand New, U2, Kasabian, Jimmy Eat World, e i Weezer.
Twilight è il primo volume di una saga “vampiresca” dedicata all’amore impossibile e folgorante tra Bella, ragazzina come tante ma dalla sensibilità fuori dal comune e Edward, un vampiro bello come un eroe dell’antichità classica…
Twilight e New Moon hanno scalato le classifiche di Stati Uniti, Spagna e Germania. In Italia Fazi Editore sta pubblicando l’intera saga.

Biography

According to Stephenie Meyer, the idea for her sensational debut novel, Twilight, came to her in a vividly detailed dream in 2003. Over the course of three months, writing at night when her children were in bed, the young Mormon mother of three developed that dream into the spellbinding story of 17-year-old Bella Swan, who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to the tiny town of Forks, Washington, and falls in love with a beautiful, mysterious vampire named Edward Cullen. After feverish writing, painstaking editing, and a brief but frustrating round of queries, submissions, and rejections, Meyer finally connected with an editor at Little, Brown who fell in love with the manuscript and signed her to a three-book deal.

Twilight debuted in October, 2005. An immediate sensation, it appeared on several year-end best books lists and earned its author a rabid cult following among teenage girls. Since then, Meyer has continued Bella and Edward's story in bestselling sequels that have proved equally successful. Young readers cannot get enough of these riveting novels -- a captivating blend of vampires, romance, and suspense -- and parents rest easy knowing the books do not contain the graphic language and sexually provocative material that pervades some YA series.

Whether or not the Twilight Saga proves to have "Harry Potter legs" remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Meyer continues writing. She forayed into adult fiction with 2008's The Host, a chilling science fiction tale about the end of humanity, told from the perspective of an alien invader. And she makes it clear the door is open for further installments in her vampire romance. Clearly, this talented author has many more stories to tell.

Good To Know

Here are some fun facts from Stephenie's "unofficial" biography on her website:
"The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen ( + ie = me ). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to google myself now."

" I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan, but no one calls him that—it's not a long story, but it is a stupid one, so I'll skip it), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts. In fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can't recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words.

This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first "hello" to the wedding."

" I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that has a huge influence on who I am and my perspective on the world, and therefore what I write (though I have been asked more than once, 'What's a nice Mormon girl like you doing writing about vampires?')."

"I can't write without music, and my biggest muse is the [British rock] band Muse."

A transcript of the dream that inspired Twilight appears in the book as Chapter 13, "Confessions."
