Twilight is what you get when you put a drop-dead gorgeous blood-sucking vampire and other creatures of the night into the mixture of teenage drama. With fans swooning and everyone raving about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, the novel has been at par with the massive sales that the Harry Potter series is getting. If Stephanie Meyer is luckier, she might even surpass J.K. Rowling with more sales and movie profits from her vampire series…Or maybe not. 

Dominating the Young Adult Genre

Twilight, a hit teen vampire series has been regarded as one of the best-selling novels by the New York Times. With 17 million books in print, the vampire flick has everyone talking. Above anything else, the novel owes its popularity on its metaphorical take on teenage dilemmas and greatly developed characters that almost stay true to the turf of possibility. Like all other vampire stints seen on movies, Twilight capitalizes on people’s unwavering fascination about vampires and their immortal existence. But what really separates Twilight among so many vampire films and novels produced in the last century?

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s Love Affair

Twilight has a different take on the usual vampire-entangled love story that we are often bombarded with. It centers on the intriguing interaction between a normal teenager, Bella Swan, and a gorgeous vampire, Edward Cullen. Creatures of the night such as Edward are damned entities that are dangerous for any human to be acquainted with.

Love Collides with Playful Fate

Bella loves Edward and Edwards feels the same way about her. But the very nature of Edward as a vampire makes it difficult to suppress his blood lust over her. To make matters worse for both of them, Bella accepts the danger but not the thought of losing him. The danger of losing her by his own hands is more than he could bear, but as the old bards said, love becomes stronger in the face of danger.

Vampires in the World of Twilight

Vampires from Twilight have deviated a lot from characteristics that other literary vampires have. They are not harmed in any way by garlic, crucifix, water or sunlight. Vampires in the Twilight world don’t sleep in coffins (in fact, they don’t need to sleep at all), don’t die through wooden stakes and even show up in pictures and have reflections.

Instead of stereotyping these creatures of the night, Stephanie Meyer gave them distinct characteristics that include physical appearance, hunting styles and legends that truly set these creatures of the night one step ahead of all other fictional vampires we come to know.

Cullen and the rest of the creatures of the night from the novel are described to be extremely handsome and have angelic features despite being godforsaken souls. Their eyes, a noteworthy addition to their features, change colors according to how blood thirsty they are. When full, their eyes are golden and as bright as topaz but turn coal black when deprived of blood. Likewise, you can tell whether a vampire feeds on human blood or not through the eye color. Those who feast on human blood have a sinister red or burgundy color to their orbs.

Given that they have superhuman abilities which include superhuman talents, vampires from Twilight appear to be much more appealing and enticing to mortals like Bella Swan. Without the need to sleep nor breathe, these creatures of the night don’t age at all even with the constant flow of time around them.

Misadventures in the Fetish Trade

Quickly, I’ll say that PERMANENT OBSCURITY, the novel by Richard Perez, is a rough, lurid, and kinky story about two dysfunctional women who set out to stay afloat in New York City, artistically and financially, by involving themselves in sleazy Craigslist domination ads and the film/video end of the fetish scene. What makes it odd is that this book is actually intended to be a comedy. And what makes it even more strange is that it’s actually funny.
