  • Love Bites: The Unofficial Saga of Twilight is a Twilighter essential. With beautiful full color pages, this book takes you from the beginnings of Stephenie Meyer to the future release of Breaking Dawn on the big screen. Bottom line, if it is Twilight, it is in this book. . . . I think it is safe to say that the Twilight Saga books are the Twilighter's bible, and Love Bites is the study guide.” — Cullen Brothers Anonymous

    With over 42 million copies sold and translations in close to forty languages, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels – Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn – have captured the hearts of a generation of readers. At the centre of the saga is the epic love story of Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen (not to mention werewolf Jacob Black), star-crossed lovers the likes of which haven’t been seen since Romeo and Juliet. The film adaptation of this beloved supernatural romance was a huge success, and as the ravenous Twilight fans embraced the movies, relative-newcomers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart transformed into international superstars.

    Love Bites: The Unofficial Saga of Twilight features:

    • the story of Stephenie Meyer and her publishing sensation
    • a guide to each novel outlining the symbolism and literary allusions
    • bios of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and the rest of the Twilight Saga cast
    • the “making of” the Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse films
    • fascinating tales of other famous vampires and werewolves
    • a chapter dedicated to the “Twihards,” the Twilight fans who have made the books and movies such an unprecedented success

    Love Bites: The Unofficial Saga of Twilight is a full-colour tribute to all the pieces of the Twilight phenomenon.

Love Bites the Unofficial Saga of Twilight is a Twilighter essential.

Bottom line, if it is Twilight, it is in this book. . . .

“The text is smoothly written and sure to please readers looking to consume every possible tidbit. For those who want to dig a little deeper, Spencer does a good job of relating Meyer's themes to the literary works that inspired her, making comparisons between Bella and Edward's story and Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, and Wuthering Heights that just might inspire readers to pursue these classics. . . . Handsome full-color, often full-page, photos appear throughout, glamorously showcasing cast members and adding visual twinkle.” — School Library Journal

“The glut of Twilight-related merchandise is indeed overwhelming, so it's worthwhile noting when quality products come along. Case in point: the recently published primer from ECW Press entitled Love Bites: The Unofficial Saga of Twilight. Written by Liv Spencer, this beautifully assembled book is filled with dozens of colour pictures and enough information to sate even the most rabid vampire fan out there. . . . Written in simple, unadorned prose and presented in a slick visually-appealing package, Love Bites is a must-buy for the Twifan in your life.” — Scene Magazine
