The next article comprises SPOILERS for Stephenie Meyer’s Midnight Solar. You’ve been warned – quench your thirst for the e-book’s particulars beneath at your individual danger!
It’s lastly right here. Stephenie Meyer’s Midnight Solar has hit bookshelves over a decade after we first anticipated the novel’s launch and the Twilight fandom remains to be pulsating with heat blood in our veins.

With the fifth e-book out, we lastly have lots of our questions on Edward Cullen’s perspective of the enduring teen romance answered.

Nonetheless a bit creepy? Sure, (we’ll get to that in a while) however there’s additionally a ton of latest perception we study in regards to the vampire’s affections to Bella.

Edward Cullen has entry to a breadth of excessive schooler minds all through his day. As his incapability to learn Bella’s thoughts perplexes him, he additionally begins to develop a craving respect for her selflessness, darkish humorousness and tenaciousness. She by no means says the “proper factor” or notably suits into the teenage woman field he’s undoubtedly been finding out and bored of for many years. And regardless of his incessant self-loathing about his monstrous nature, she at all times makes him really feel comfy in his personal pores and skin. These particulars construct upon their relationship in a major means that helped us admire Stephenie Meyer’s idea extra completely.
Edward Actually, Actually Does Not Like Mike Newton
The character of Mike Newton has at all times been a little bit of a nuisance within the Twilight franchise as he perpetually makes an attempt to supply Bella a standard high-school boyfriend expertise and she or he clearly reveals her disinterest. However, wow does Edward Cullen not like Mike.
All through the e-book, he evidently grows in his distaste for the excessive schooler as he continues to ask her out and such. And others strive, together with Eric, Tyler and Jacob, however Edward particularly hates his guts. There’s total excerpts detailing his fantasies to backhand him throughout the room, imagining the sound of his bones breaking and the very best one his craving to “pulverize his cranium with my fist.” Think about how Jacob Black would ship these ideas later into the collection, particularly when he kisses Bella in Eclipse? Dude is intense.
Bella Becoming a member of The Household Was Talked About From The Starting
Edward could seem like an adolescent, however we’ve at all times been inquisitive about simply how teen-like he dealt with his Bella drawback together with his household within the first e-book. Midnight Solar particulars that the remainder of the Cullens have been in on the continuing dialogue about the place he was particularly at with Bella fairly early on. Early within the e-book, Alice shares a imaginative and prescient she has of Bella as a vampire and the remainder of the household (besides Rosalie) readily settle for the concept that Bella may quickly be part of their vampire clan. It’s really actually candy how a lot they belief Edward together with his relationship with Bella, regardless of his personal ongoing fears on the predicament. Esme is particularly on board, and extra motherly than you may need realized as Edward reads her ideas on Bella.
Alice Loves Folks Lengthy Earlier than She Meets Them
It’s an undisputed indisputable fact that Alice Cullen is the very best, proper? The character is especially attention-grabbing in Midnight Solar as a result of readers get to see Edward and Alice’s cute brother-sister relationship. It is particularly attention-grabbing on this context as a result of he can share her visions of the longer term and sense her timeless enthusiasm for Bella.
Within the new novel, we learn the way authentically keen Alice is to fulfill Bella, always asking her brother if she will be able to introduce herself. And the way a lot she really loves her, having seen forward to the connection they’d sometime have. And likewise that this has occurred earlier than when Jasper got here into the image. She’d seen their future lengthy earlier than it occurred. She was in love with him earlier than they even met and made certain to select the very best model of their first assembly by measure of her visions.
A Lot Of Edward’s Choices Hinge On Alice’s Visions
Alice Cullen can be of significance to Midnight Solar as a result of we study that her visions of Bella and Edward inform his selections about what to do as their love story unfolds. In direction of the start of the e-book, Alice sees the aforementioned sight of Bella as a vampire that scares Edward into desirous to run away. Later within the e-book, Alice informs Edward of quite a few conflicting visions she has about him and Bella. One entails him murdering her within the meadow and one other together with her as an grownup human nonetheless with Edward. She calls this cluster of doable eventualities a “knot” that Edward makes an attempt to untie by bringing her to the meadow (famously) and exhibiting her who he actually is. What would we do with out her?
Okay, So Edward Spied On Bella A LOT
Essentially the most troubling new data in Stephenie Meyer’s Midnight Solar is simply how a lot Edward Cullen stalks Bella all through the e-book. Not solely does he hearken to the encompassing ideas of everybody she comes into contact with, he visits her room each evening and watches her sleep.
At one level, each chapter begins with Edward gazing her sleeping patterns. The boy’s obtained quite a lot of time on his fingers since he can’t sleep, however it’s incessant! Edward, boundaries! Bella wants them. His spying has to do together with his fear about her following the automobile incident. He sincerely doesn’t assume she will be able to make it by a day with out moving into some kind of accident or fall. Although one entertaining element is type of enjoyable. Edward spends quite a lot of his time inside Bella’s room killing spiders for her and even fixes her window so it may open and shut extra effortlessly.
Edward And Carlisle Went Again For That Creepy Predator In Port Angeles
One level of Edward’s creeping that truly is sensible now’s throughout Bella’s go to to Port Angeles. We study in Midnight Solar that Edward was particularly frightened about his vampire relations Peter and Charlotte visiting on that day catching wind of her scent whereas she was there. After he saves her from the sexual predators, outdated Eddie was actually about able to tear these guys aside. He used to kill dangerous guys at one level in his vampire life, so the incident springs up an outdated thirst for horrible males. After the occasions in Port Angeles, Edward confronts Carlisle together with his fear in regards to the sexual predator preying on extra poor ladies like Bella they usually went again to seek out him later and “take care” of it. (They do not kill him, simply get him arrested)
Angela Is The Finest… And Jessica Is Form Of The Worst
Right here’s an surprising improvement. Edward turns into fairly keen on Angela all through Midnight Solar. Her thoughts is a chilled presence to him to take a break from the opposite excessive schoolers. She doesn’t concern herself with the drama of the common teen and Edward a lot prefers her to Jessica’s mind, who’s at all times jealous and gossip-y.
After they confront Angela and Jessica in Port Angeles after the predator incident, Angela excuses them so Bella can have some alone time with Edward. The vampire very a lot appreciates this gesture and later returns the favor by manipulating her crush, Ben, into asking her to promenade. He and Emmett orchestrate a dialog that makes Ben conscious that Angela is into him. It’s a brilliant cute side of Midnight Solar, however however Jessica proves to be an particularly shallow and poisonous member of Bella’s associates.
Bella Is A Lot Extra Like Charlie Than We Thought
One other charming element Midnight Solar dazzles us with is extra perception into Bella’s connections to her considerably estranged father, Charlie. Early on, when Edward first enters Charlie’s thoughts when he first sees him on the hospital, we curiously study that he can’t actually utterly learn his thoughts as simply as everybody else. He can solely sense the tone in his ideas, not particular phrases.
That is tremendous attention-grabbing as a result of it means Bella type of inherited her protect talents. On the finish of Midnight Solar, we additionally discover connections between Bella and Charlie when Edward is studying Renee’s thoughts on the hospital. Amidst her fear for Bella to remain in Forks, she compares her daughter’s infatuation with Edward as “an excessive amount of like Charlie.” Feels like her ex was one to take up roots too quickly and Renee was the free chook.
How Edward Will get Comfy With Bella’s Odor
One last essential side of Midnight Solar to the touch on contemporary off my learn of the e-book is Edward coming to phrases with being with Bella and her oh-so scrumptious scent that first has the vampire considering homicide. The primary time Edward catches wind of it, we actually do get the sensation that he had motivations to neglect the whole lot he stands for and kill her proper there, however because the e-book progresses he turns into extra comfy with being round her. His selections to push himself to the touch her, kiss her after which save her life as soon as James bites her are attributable to his intense love for her as an individual.
