Bella's human life is quickly coming to a close, but with so many outside forces clambering to stop her heart, she may not make it to graduation alive. Somehow she must find a way to reconcile the two parts of her heart and life before her time runs out.
Eclipse is a much more interesting story than the prior two, as it deals largely with the interactions between the vampire and werewolf worlds. However, parents should be aware that the main plot is focused on a love triangle between admittedly selfish individuals that repeatedly cause emotional pain to one another. This behavior is largely excused in the book. While the characters do technically remain virgins, sexual attraction, desire, and lust are a main focus of the story and there are multiple would be seduction scenes. The story also contains slightly more graphic images of dismemberment and fighting than seen in Twilight or New Moon. Sexual morality, infidelity, and selfish love are all dealt with in some capacity in this story.
