1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge? Yes I was a little worried as to why Alice felt like she needed to lie to Jasper.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi? Evil Royalty.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions? Not really.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that? A little but I knew Edward would be VERY UPSET

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life? A little but not much (again when I first read it Eclipse was out so I knew there was a still another book)

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Yes, because it made me realise that what they were doing was more dangerous than it seemed. I thought she'd go there and get Edward.. I didn't realise it was more difficult and complicated than that.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
That they are knowledgeable, unpredictable... and very dangerous. And you have to obey them.. Vampire royalty

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Not reaaalllyyyyy.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I knew Edward would go ballistic. But I think It might make him think it over again, because It might be a possibility that she does get turned into a vampire, and Edward knows that.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
No, because I know he would get stopped. I knew they would get there in time. You can't kill Edward off =[

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
..I was reading so fast now, I probably just thought, "Whatever, everything will be fine, EDWARD WILL BE BAAAACK NOOOOWWWW!!!!"
2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
I thought they were very formal and nice and fair, but you get the impression that under that they really are very...mm...greedy and envious and they only put on a good show..
3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Eclipse was out. There was still plenty of the book left. I am very loyal to Edward and Bella and have stubbornly never considered them dying.
4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
It makes me a little happier, I figured since Edward obviously still loves her, as I believed all along, he would be very mad and probably considering ripping Alice to pieces.
5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Not really. I always just keep believing that they will be fine. They have to end up alive, together and happy. I'm kind of 'psychic' so I just know things, and they usually just happen that way. I honestly wasn't worried about him.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
I was on edge..But I had to belive that they would make it.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Clearly, they are very dangerous, with a lot of power.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
No so much. I expected that she would not want to live anymore if Edward died, like he couldn't live without her.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I was counting on Bella becoming a vampire sooner or later, so it didn't really change my view on their future. Edward would be sooo mad.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
I was so stressed out. I hoped (and kind of knew) that everything would be alright, but still, it was very tense. I hardly breathed while she ran.

Yes

Lethal and dangerous are words for children compared to the Volturi

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Not really. She would've done all that she could have. She already said her goodbye when she drowned.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Optimistic-yes, Edward would NOT be happy.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
I was fiercely scared for their lives when she said this. At first, I was confused, and I had to re-read it to fully get the gist of it. And I realized she fully didn't know what was going to happen next, which puts everyone on edge.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Obviously, I was frightened by then. Especially when Alice had told Jacob before that "they are the substance of your nightmares". I would not be feeling too jolly about a group of vampires to being with, but add that to the mix, and my hair will be standing on edge, too, Jacob! Other than that, I tried to see them as vampires do; as protectors. But you get a sense as Alice continues that it is something more than just that. Which leaves me questioning their motives, not that I question vampire's motives often or anything...Haha.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It didn't frighten me at all. If I were to lose Edward, I would think my life would be over, as well, and my next thought process would be how I could get myself to be with him again, and somewhat relieved to know that I wouldn't be far behind him either. We learn from Alice that it would be a quick end for Bella, as she would smell too delicious to really punish. However, I would feel horrible for what would be coming for Alice, too. I can't just let myself drown in pity when I know my best friend is about to suffer, as well.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
My heart was racing when I first heard her say that she should just change Bella herself, and I oddly wanted her to bite her right there, too, when Bella asked her to. But Alice has a point, she'd be writhing in pain for too long. And I have a feeling it wouldn't be so easy for Bella to be changed because when does anything become easy for Bella in this series. My hopes aren't too high yet.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes, absolutely. Alice had no idea what was going to happen next, so all of us really did feel blind. I wish that he couldn't read minds so that Alice could really tell him what was really going on; that Bella was alive and that there was nothing to be done in Italy. She was save, and he needed to be, too. But there's no saying he wouldn't believe her anyways. Losing someone like that breaks one into pieces, and nothing makes sense from there on. So I understand why Edward was planning this. It was just so frightening.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
i was very very intimidated and i thought they wouldnt make it, taken alice's promise/lie...

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
i was like, "no bella! dont do it!!" once again, i was freaking out!!

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
i found it very funny that alice would seriously do something like that and be brave enough to stay in the same room with edward!

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi? grr they suck

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions? I couldn't blame her Life without Edward was not working for her. Dying trying to save him had it's plus sides

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that? I was so happy Alice decided this I think it was all really rediculous too. Why isn't she a vampire already?? I knew Edward would be upset

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life? Of course

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Even further on edge, yeah. I knew she'd save Edward in time, but I knew something would go wrong - and Alice saying that she'd lied to Jasper seemed like really bad foreboding to me.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Felix seemed like a sexist moron, and I despised Jane. I actually kinda liked Demetri, because he seemed more civil than the rest. Aro scared me, because I almost liked him, and that's clearly not a good idea. Caius needed to take a chill pill and Marcus intrigued me. Alec was creepy, with his boy features and old man personality. As a whole, I can understand completely why they were feared. I wouldn't want that lot in their colour coded cloaks approaching ME in a dark narrow Volterra alley.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It frightened me yeah, but not because of the Romeo and Juliet thing. I knew they'd make it out alive. But exactly how serious she was over this scared ten shades out of me. This was dramatic. Everything she'd lived through, and only now is she getting suicidal?

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I was glad that she had other options instead of waiting for Edward to come around to doing it. I knew he'd be mad, though, and stomp his foot a bit. I hoped he wouldn't cause arguments with it.

5) Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
I knew that Bella would save him, so not really. There was still some adrenaline urging Bella faster just in case, though.
'Out of nowhere, she was perched on Jasper's back, her lips at his neck.
Jasper chuckled, shaking his head.

Yeah I wondered what was so bad about what they were gonna face that Alice might not be able to get out.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
I was scared and fasinated.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Yeah, I thought she was still gonna die and then Edward would get himself killed :(

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I was so super happy that Bella was gonna be changed. He was Edward he over reacted like always.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
YES!
