The Twilight Series: Untangled
3 of 11
So far, the young-adult vampire-romance series consists of four books: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.
Although Meyer admits that titling the first book was a struggle, her choice seems appropriate. Twilight is the time right before the sun sets and the moon rises — the time vampires feel the safest.
The second book, New Moon, is about losing love. The title refers to the darkest stage of the lunar cycle, which represents the darkest time in Bella's life.
The title Eclipse focuses on Bella comprehending the price she will pay for becoming a vampire, which she had not given any prior serious thought. Many aspects and relationships that revolve around Bella are uprooted once she makes her decision.
Breaking Dawn refers to the beginning of Bella's life as a vampire. The cover represents Bella's progress from the weakest character in the saga (human) to the most powerful (the queen).
