Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a little bit different. Not one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarried and Bella decided to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she didn't expect much of anything to change. But they do when she meets the mysterious Edward Cullen (Robert Pattison). For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met.
He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. But he doesn't have fangs -- that's just in the movies. And he doesn't drink human blood, though Edward and his family are unique among vampires in that lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is that soulmate he has waited 90 years for.
But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy.
Somehow, they will have to make their unorthodox romance work. But what will they do when Laurent and James, the Cullens' mortal vampire enemies, come to town, looking for Bella?
