Genre: Y/A, Fantasy, Romance
No. of pages: 240
Having uncovered the dark secret of her enigmatic classmate, Edward Cullen, Bella Swan embraces her feelings for him, trusting Edward to keep her safe despite the risks. When a rival clan of vampires makes its way into Forks, though, the danger to Bella has never been more real. Will she make the ultimate sacrifice to protect the people dearest to her?
Loving the artwork and new incarnation on the book that jumpstarted my reading and writing enthusiasm, I enjoyed ‘Twilight The Graphic Novel Volume 2’ more than the first volume.
My favourite scenes include the backstory of The Cullens (Carlisle and Edward) – the flashback was illustrated incredibly well. Also, I practically devoured the final fight scene and the parts of the original manuscript that were used, the reveal was done fantastically.
The use of colour in the fashbacks was a masterful touch, as to was the blur effect when Bella went under sedation. It is wonderful to explore ‘Twilight’ again in illustrated form.
Colour in the final scene felt a little washed out – I guess it was symbolising “twilight” but I wanted to be dazzled like I was in the meadow scene from Volume 1. This felt a little lack lustre for the climax of the story. Additionally, the tone this version of ‘Twilight’ ended on was a little cheesy.
But Volume 2 definitely captured more of the essence of ‘Twilight’ that was missing from Volume 1. We get the comedy and sarcasm, as well as some of the darker moments – and that was something I was praying for… thank heavens to betsy ;p
Again another fantastic addition to any twi-hard collection.
Overall feeling: Magical memories
