The vampires are not only presented sympathetically, but with their amazing superhero-ish powers, spectacular looks, and hipster style, they also make vampirism seem like a sensible and appealing lifestyle choice -- though they would certainly fit in better in Soho than in Forks, Washington.
When Bella asks why he is around, Laurent reveals that he came on a errand for Victoria. He leaves looking hurt and angry, and Bella gets the feeling that he now counts her among his enemies.
The pain that Bella feels when Edward abandons her is extremely well written and is really what this story is about. Twilight had an almost dreamy, fairytale quality to the writing, which this story lacks.
Bella and Jacob begin to spend more and more time together. The book shows the trials of sacrifice and the tragedy of love, especially love that is star-crossed. The villains of the book are Victoria, a revengeful vampire, and the ancient Volturi vampire family who uphold law and order among their immortal clan.
Trying to save Jacob from the gang, Bella discovers that Jacob has instead morphed into a werewolf. As her condition gradually worsens, Charlie begins to worry. They know what their target-audience is. Alice foresees this however, and in a panic she and Bella hasten to stop him.
She described it as "a very lovely ruffled tulip that means nothing at all".

Bella is still living in rainy Forks, Washington with her dad, Charlie. Desperate to hear him, she purposely places herself in dangerous situations. Bella is horrified, but Laurent tells her that he is thirsty and plans to kill her himself, insisting that he shall make her death less painful compared the torture Victoria plans for her.
Bella is surprised to see that Jacob has grown into a handsome young man. It turns out that Victoria has decided to avenge her fallen mate by killing Bella; a mate for a mate, so that Edward will be grief stricken.
She forgives him, and the Cullens vote in favor of Bella being transformed into a vampire, to Rosalie and Edward's dismay. While Bella dismisses the Jasper incident as a minor family quarrel, Edward is visibly shaken and withdraws emotionally from Bella.
