The Twilight Saga6 books in series
Will the beautiful teenage mortal Bella Swan find eternal love with brooding vampire Edward Cullen? And will that mean leaving safety behind forever?
Seduction – tick. Suspense – tick. Supernatural forces – tick. If you missed the books that inspired the wildly popular Twilight films, it’s never too late to become a TwiHard.
The drama begins when Bella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks, Washington. Ignoring the nice boys, she falls for the ‘bizarre, beautiful’ one with porcelain skin and golden eyes. Edward Cullen is impossible to resist and impossible to decipher. Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret. But she doesn’t realise the closer she gets to him, the greater the risk...especially when the mysterious wolf-teen Jacob Black also falls for her.
Guiding us through this unearthly adolescent Bermuda love triangle is voice artist Ilyana Kadushin. She draws us into the flow of Bella’s internal conflict with a voice one Audible Australia reviewer describes as ‘angelic’.
Since the early 2000s, when writer Stephenie Meyer published the four young adult novels in the Twilight series, the books have sold over 100 million copies and won over passionate fans of all ages.
But it was the five Twilight films released between 2008 and 2012 that really turned Meyer’s story into an unstoppable cultural phenomenon. The film series grossed over $3.3 billion worldwide and made megastars of young actors – and real-life on and off couple – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Obsessive teen love stories don’t get any better than this.
