Fans of the New York Times bestselling Twilight Saga will treasure this official guide! This must-have hardcover edition is the definitive encyclopedic reference to the Twilight Saga and provides readers with everything they need to further explore the unforgettable world Stephenie Meyer created in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. With exclusive new material, character profiles, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and beautiful artwork, this comprehensive handbook is essential for every Twilight Saga fan.

~ My Review ~

So that was a whole lot of information to digest! Definitely not an easy read by any means, but for Twilight enthusiasts out there, there is a lot of extra info on all (yes ALL) of the characters, including back stories never seen before, and connections that may surprise you (Did you know that there was a Swan married into the Quileute tribe?)

I really loved finding out more about some of the minor characters and all of the vampires that showed up as witnesses in Breaking Dawn. My favourite part was the extensive backstory for Alice Cullen - it alone made the book worth the read for me.

Some of the deleted scenes are on Stephenie's website, but if I am not mistaken there were some new ones too. For the Twihards who can't get enough of Forks, this is a fun book to have on your shelf (Great Christmas gift idea)

My Rating: 4/5
