The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide is here!

I just picked up my copy of The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide and I’ll be sharing my thoughts about it as I read. Here are my initial reactions today as I flip through the book. If you haven’t picked it up yet, you can get it here on Amazon for a lot less than at the store. I got my copy at Meijer for $17.49 and it is only $13.22 on Amazon. Click here to go to the site: The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide.

In the first section, Stephanie Meyer gives you every detail you ever wanted to know about vampires, what they look like, what they can do, transformation, history, etc. Next she discusses each of the different Covens in detail: the Cullen’s, Volturi, Amazon, Denali, Egyptian, Irish, James’s, Mexican, Riley’s, Romanian, Nomads, and Joham with the other Vampire Hybrids.

Section two goes into details about the werewolves, including comparing the Children of the Moon and the differences between them and the Shape-shifters (Quileute). It goes into the Black Pack, the Uley Pack, and the Tribe.

The third section of The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide goes into details about the humans in Bella’s life, her family and friends, teachers, other students at Forks High School, other residents of Forks, as well as residents of Seattle and even two humans who we meet in Brazil (do you remember who they were? Hint: they cleaned up feathers!).

The fourth section deals with timelines, plot, cars (oh yeah, I want that yellow Porche) and the music that inspired Stephanie as she was writing each of the books. The book closes with some Fan Art, photos of International Covers, Outtakes (scenes that were cut from the books because of time/space constraints, like watching deleted scenes from a movie as part of the Special Features on a DVD) and frequently asked questions. One of the questions deals with a question I’ve had for a long time: What do the cover photos represent? Other questions involve vampires eating pizza, a heart-shaped crystal that is anything but, and how Bella fell in love with Jacob.

If you don’t already have a copy of The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, you can get it here on Amazon or go to your local book store.
