    The veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above.

    Bo Laughlin says: "Great Book - Almost ruined by the narrator"
    "The Journy Ends Here"
    Overall

    Because there is no way, I can put up with this narrator for a moment longer, and that is a first for me. I tried, I really did, becuase I was interested in the future adventures of Richard Cypher and crew, but the way this man talks reminds me of a computer generated voice, and I just can not get over it, and boy did I try. The sad thing is I am not a picky person. Hence why I got this even after all the warnings, in all the other reviews. I figured I could handle it... I just never figured on how bad it truly was.

    Story
    (3166)

    To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare, woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point.

    Angie says: "I couldn't wait for the audio book"
    "Never turn your nose up at Harlequin again"
    Overall

    -- if you liked any of these books. Because that is what they are, and not very good ones. And yet I will be the first to admit there is an element of addiction to them, but then a again, the same can be said of Harlequin novels... I do worry about the kind of roll model Bella is for young women, and the kind of messages this story as a whole sends out but that is for parents to decided.

    I do wish I could get my credits back for it, as it did not take me long, to remember why I never finished book 3... between Bella's martyr complex, and Edwards guilt complex and Jacobs irrationalities these books drove me nuts out of pure stupidity of them.

    In the end Steven King said it best

    "Stephanie Meyer can't write a darn. She's not very good."
