Stephanie Meyer's is truly an exceptional writer. I could not put down any of the Twilight books and was given this book to read as it was the same quality as twilight but geared for adults. As the other reviewers have said I was told it took a wee bit to get into, which i agree with, but once you get over this, (even though I didnt think it took very long) I could not put the book down. Stephanie Meyers does not write for the teenage girls only, this is truly an adult book with lots of twists and turns. Stephanie's imagination and the way she describes details is fantastic, you actually feel that you are there.
I recommend this book 100%, you will not be disappointed.
