Always wanted to know that backround history of the other vampires and characters in the saga? Well this book has everything from Alice Cullen to Sam Uley. Never have I ever thought that you could know how each character came to be, Stephenie has spent alot of time on this book to come up with each characters history and backround, shes done an amazing job with it. Was awsome to read that the vampire James had something to do with Alice being changed into a vampire and what a scary upbringing she had even though she barely remembers her human life. An amazing book, an absolute must read for all Twilight fans.
