A Backside of Success


The series that falls on the genre of young adult, fantasy, romance, and a vampire based by American author Stephenie Meyer. However, she states that she considers her books as "romance more than anything else".

Here is the abridgment of each movie
TWILIGHT
The Idea for Twilight came to Meyer's mind in a dream on June 2, 2003. The dream was about a human girl, and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood. Despite having very little writing experience, in a matter of three months she had transformed that dream into a completed novel. Eventually, the book has been made into a series of motion pictures by Summit Entertainment and was released as the film adaptation in 2008.

Synopsis:
Bella Swan moves from Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in Forks, Washington to allow her mother to travel with her new husband, a minor league baseball player. She eventually learns that he is a member of a vampire family who drinks animal blood rather than human. Edward and Bella fall in love, but James, a sadistic vampire from another vampire coven, is drawn to hunt down Bella. Edward and the other Cullens defend Bella. She escapes to Phoenix, Arizona, where she is tricked into confronting James, who tries to kill her. She is seriously wounded, but Edward rescues her and they return to Forks, having killed James.
NEW MOON
Following the success of twilight, Meyer expanded the book into a series of books. New Moon is the 2nd novel that tells about Bella Swan's own point of view. The novel had its first released on November 20, 2009.
Synopsis:
Edward and his family leave Forks because he believes he is endangering Bella's life. Bella falls into a deep depression, until she develops a strong friendship with Jacob Black, who she discovers can shape shift into a wolf. Jacob and the other wolves in his tribe must protect her from Victoria, a vampire seeking to avenge the death of her mate James, by killing Bella. A misunderstanding occurs, and Edward believes Bella is dead. Edward decides to commit suicide in Volterra, Italy, but he is stopped by Bella, who is accompanied by Edward's sister, Alice. They meet with the Volturi, a powerful vampire coven, and are released only on the condition that Bella be turned into a vampire in the near future. Bella and Edward are reunited, and she and the Cullens return to Forks.
ECLIPSE
June 30, 2010 had recently released a film adaptation of the 3rd novel – eclipse; still adapted by Bella Swan's standpoint.
Synopsis:
The vampire Victoria (James' mate from Twilight) has created an army of "newborn" vampires to battle the Cullen family and murder Bella for revenge. Meanwhile, Bella is compelled to choose between her relationship with Edward and her friendship with Jacob. Edward's vampire family and Jacob's werewolf pack join forces to successfully destroy Victoria and her vampire army. In the end, Bella chooses Edward's love over Jacob's and agrees to marry him.
BREAKING DAWN
Meyer indicated that breaking dawn would be the final novel to be told by Bella Swan's perspective. The production will begin later this year, and the films will be shot back to back with the original Cullen cast. Production is expected to last 4-5 months according to E! Television. Breaking Dawn Part 1 is set to premiere on November 18, 2011, and Breaking Dawn Part 2's release date has not yet been announced.
Synopsis:
Bella and Edward are married, but their honeymoon is cut short when Bella discovers that she is pregnant. Her pregnancy progresses rapidly, severely weakening her. She nearly dies giving birth to her and Edward's half-vampire-half-human daughter, Renesmee, but Edward injects Bella with his venom to save her life and turns her into a vampire. A vampire from another coven sees Renesmee and mistakes her for an "immortal child". She informs the Volturi, as the existence of such beings violates vampire law. The Cullens gather vampire witnesses who can verify that Renesmee is not an immortal child. After an intense confrontation, the Cullens and their witnesses convince the Volturi that the child poses no danger to vampires or their secret, and they are left in peace by the Volturi.
MIDNIGHT SUN
It would be the retelling of the events of Twilight, but written from the perspective of Edward Cullen as opposed to that of Bella Swan. Meyer has stated that Twilight is the only book from the series that she plans to rewrite from Edward's perspective. She also said that her goal was to go for around two years without hearing about Midnight Sun, and she thought that she would begin working on the novel again once she was sure that "everyone's forgotten about it"

So, think that you've known the whole story? Nuh-oh.. Cos here's the last one..
The Short, Second Life of Bree Tanner"
On June 5, 2010, Meyer released The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner which tells Bree's story of her final moments of being a vampire. The book picks up a couple of days before her appearance in Eclipse.
According to Meyer: "This story was something that I worked on off and on for a while, just for fun, in between the times I was writing or editing other TwilightThe Twilight Saga: The Official Guide came up, I thought that might be a good place for Bree. Her story is a nice complement to Eclipse; it explains a lot of the things that Bella never knew. So I dusted it off and finished it up for placement in the Guide yet the story became too long to be included so it became a stand-alone book.


The story tells Bree Tanner’s life and the new born vampires turned by Victoria in order to kill Bella. Bree makes friends, with sort of love interest with Diego, another vampire of the group, since both of them feel that have been used and have doubts about the real intentions of his leader, plus: her vision is different and bloodless than other newborn vampires. Diego mysteriously disappears, leaving Bree even more confused and disconcert. Through the road, Bree makes friends with Riley, a relegated vampire because of his power of releasing a terrible smell which upsets other newborns. He convince her to participate into the battle, leading her to a terrible end in hands of Volturi.
