Description

It's here! #1 bestselling author Stephenie Meyer makes a triumphant return to the world of Twilight with this highly anticipated companion: the iconic love story of Bella and Edward told from the vampire's point of view.
When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella's side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward's version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun.
This unforgettable tale as told through Edward's eyes takes on a new and decidedly dark twist. Meeting Bella is both the most unnerving and intriguing event he has experienced in all his years as a vampire. As we learn more fascinating details about Edward's past and the complexity of his inner thoughts, we understand why this is the defining struggle of his life. How can he justify following his heart if it means leading Bella into danger?
In Midnight Sun, Stephenie Meyer transports us back to a world that has captivated millions of readers and brings us an epic novel about the profound pleasures and devastating consequences of immortal love.

"People do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there." -- Time

  • It’s so good!

    I have been holding off buying it because it’s been so long. The first few movies were super uncomfortable, unlike the books, and I wasn’t sure I’d like it. But I should have known I’d love it. After reading the Twilight series and The Host multiple times, you’d think I’d know that I’d love anything Stephanie wrote! Lesson learned. Just buy it! You’ll love it if you liked her other books!
  • Great POV

    This answered all of the questions I had, plus some. Several “Ah-Ha” moments that, for me, are priceless. I highly recommend this book for anyone who’s read the remainder of the series. My favorite part of the book is how the writing style stays the same but reflects Edward so entirely. It’s accurate. It’s necessary. It’s one of the few good things 2020 has brought us. I’m so grateful she finished this book and I hope she intends to continue with another.
  • Loved!!

    Loved it. I have been waiting for this book to come out for years!! And I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been wondering this after finishing the book, if there will be another to correlate and go along with the original twilight saga books, all in Edward’s point of view.
  • Long but goof

    As an avid twilight saga reader, I knew I would be reading midnight sun the moment it came out. I think a majority of the reason I was able to finish it was due to my preexisting adoration of twilight. It was a bit too long, likely due to the never sleeping bit, and very repetitive. I love Bella, I have to leave Bella, I love Bella too much to leave her, but I love her so much that I have to, I hate that I am what I am, I hate that Bella loves me, I love Bella, ect. This much is to be expected, though, and I will say I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves this series the way I do. It was interesting and gave such a new perspective on Edward and his mind and experience.

    I cannot get through this. We are in Edward’s head too much. Maybe that is the point? I’m just not that into it. Disappointed.
  • Oh, Edward.

    I’m sorry, but I still love the Twilight books after all these years and I am SO glad Stephenie Meyer finished this book; I always hoped that she would and I was not disappointed. I now hope she’ll continue all the way through the rest of the series from Edward’s perspective.

    I was always annoyed at the original stories making Bella out to be a suicidal manic depressive teenager and now they add to the equally insane Edward. His entire story is self hate and no way could I finish. There was no true back story or love story. Just two co-dependent immature teenagers who are good looking so naturally fall for each other.
  • Loved hearing Edward’s views

    I loved rereading the story through Edward’s eyes! I wish it covered the whole series! A few of the passages were a little long to get to the point,but I enjoyed the book.
