Midnight Sun

Midnight Sun is Twilight from Edward’s point of view. It all started when Stephenie Meyer had inspiration to write the first chapter of Twilight from Edward’s perspective. While standing in line at the post office, she jotted down things he would say or was thinking. Midnight Sun is a peak into the mind of Edward Cullen, his thoughts, feelings and insight during the events of Twilight. More about the Cullen family is provided during Edward’s narrative. It is a pleasurable read, and an in depth description of the story of Twilight. Stephenie Meyer may never finish Midnight Sun. Unfortunately when she gave the draft too people producing the Twilight film, it was leaked and the unfinished draft was posted on the internet. Stephenie Meyer was disappointed and the project was shelved. The chapters can be found on Stephenie Meyer’s website along with the story that inspired the creation of Midnight Sun. It may be finished and published someday. We can wait until then!

Life and Death

Life and Death is Twilight told from the point of view of a boy. Life and Death was the inclusion of the 10th anniversary edition of Twilight, instead of a book forward, Stephenie Meyer gave fans Life and Death. It has become known as a gender swap.

The plot is nearly exactly the same as Twilight, except this time it is told from Beau’s point of view, instead of Bella’s. Stephenie Meyer was questioned at book signings, that Bella’s character sounded like a damsel in distress. The result! She wrote a boy heroine. Not that much unlike twilight, yet different indeed.

A pleasure to read and fans can experience the world of Twilight told from a male’s perspective. What would happen if a boy fell in love with a female vampire in the world of Twilight? Experience the romance between a female vampire and a human boy.
