Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

Eclipse starts off with a series of killings in the city of Seattle. It turns out that these victims were being killed by newborns, which is a new vampire thirstier than ever for blood. These newborns were created for one purpose only, to kill Bella Swan. In the first book, Edward Cullen, Bella’s gorgeous vampire boyfriend, kills James, another vampire, because he was going after Bella. James’ girlfriend, Victoria, has been out to seek revenge for Edward’s mate ever since. This time Bella is in life threatening danger, so the Cullen family and her best friend’s, Jacob Black, wolf pack join together to form an army to kill these newborns. During the battle, Edward, Bella, and Jacob seek safety on the mountain top, away from danger. Here Jacob finds out that Edward has proposed to Bella and he becomes extremely jealous and threatens to put his life in danger by fighting the newborns. In the end, Edward kills Victoria and the newborns are all killed off. With an unexpected attack from a hidden newborn, Jacob is badly injured. Bella returned to Jacob’s house after everything had been settled only to find out about his extreme jealousy about her engagement. He then tells her that he will always be waiting for her. The book ends with Bella and Edward deciding to tell Charlie, her father, of the engagement plans.

1. If you were Jacob, how would you feel that the girl of your dreams is getting married to your enemy?

2. Do you think the feud between Edward and Jacob will ever stop?

1. If I were Jacob, I would feel very upset with the fact that the girl of my dreams is getting married to my enemy. I would feel almost betrayed by Bella because she was always a good friend to Jacob.

2. I do not think the fued between Jacob and Edward will stop. They must get along at times but they will still always have a little hatred towards each other.

1. I would be pretty heartbroken, but I don't know if it would have been such a sudden unexpected occurrence, considering they had been together for a while.
2. I think the feud over Bella will eventually stop. I get that Jacob wants to fight for Bella, but he's just a kid; at some point he'll mature enough to realize it may not be practical to give up everything for someone, when he could still be happy if he moved on and found someone who actually felt the same way. Otherwise, I suppose there will always be a sort of distrust between Edward and Jacob, since they are natural enemies.

1. If I were Jacob, I would feel very betrayed by Bella. I would be heatbroken and upset. Bella kind of led Jacob on when Edward was gone. Plus the tension between Edwawrd and Jacob is going to far worse now that Bella is marrying Jake's enemy.

1. I would be upset and heartbroken, but like Lisa said, he had to have seen it coming. Bella and Edward had been together for a while.

2. I think that they may become better friends, but the feud will never truely stop. Jacob will always be mad at Edward for what he did to Bella, and they are natural enemies already.

1. I would be really mad because if she was the one he really loved and she went behind his back and married someone else that would really upset me.

1. I think that even though he loved Bella, he had to get over her eventually, and he could move on with his life and maybe even be happy for her.
2. Yes, because Jacob will eventually meet someone else that he will care for more than his high school crush, and he and Edward would be able to move past their differences.

1.) If I were Jacob, I would feel betrayed (because she knows how Jacob feels about her), as well as sadden. Of course, this is due to jealousy and the thought that I can "never have her".

2.) I think with time, it will. The two might learn to get along for the sake of their relationship and fondness for Bella.

I agree with everyone. If I were Jacob I would feel betrayed and lied to. But I do think that in time the feud will come to an end for the sake of Bella.

1. I would feel hopeless because it would feel like there is nothing I could do
2. Since they are immortal, i believe it will eventually. Time heals all wounds and they will eventually forget about their feud.

1) I think that i would feel betrayed by Bella if she was marrying my enemy because she was my best friend.
2) I think that the feud will end because both families love Bella and will want her to be happy.

1. well obviously i would be upset, who wouldn't?
2. yeah Edward's immortal jake not so much. It's only a matter of time

2. I think Jacob will always hate Edward. But Jacob is probably not going to show his hate towards Edward so Bella will be happy, because Jacob loves her and just wants her to be happy.

If I were Jacob i would be furious. The thing that would kill me the most is to know that there is nothing I could do about it.

1.) I'd be pret-ty upset.

2.) Yeah, they have to do everything possible to make Bella happy. If it involves ending their feud, they'd do it.
