1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
Completely shocked! Here they are suppose to be protectors and Paul just about kills Bella. I understand how upset he could be but.. it surprised me.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I wasn't expecting Emily to be half messed up. It's very sad and tragic that such a thing would happen to her because of who she loved. I did like her a lot. She felt very warm and nice and motherly. Of course her and Bella would get along! I think after their "you're the vampire/werewolf girl" thing happened they knew it too.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
I'm still worried about them fighting vampires! As much as I know they are tough and made to fight them.. it just seems uncompareable!

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I feel they are in more than a friendship. They're not dating but they both love each other and act almost as if they are dating.. just minus the kisses and whatnot.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
"Love is irrational." It's true. When she first found out he was a vampire, she didn't even know then that he wasn't off killing innocent people everyday.. she loved him.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
I was as scared as Bella first, but when the others weren't, I calmed down.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I don't know... I didn't like her, but didn't dislike her either. At first she was kinda mean to Bella, but later I kinda like her when she worried about Bella.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
I guessed they wouldn't be weak or something like that, that they'd have special abilities. And I was surprised, because at that point I believed that nothing at all could kill a vampire.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I was glad that there weren't secrets anymore, but I was sure that Jacob'd try to hit on her again, and that I didn't like as much.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
I understand her. She loves him, and nothing would change that. I mean, she could tell him to stay away from her if he were killing people or doing bad stuff, but she wouldn't stop loving him. Ever.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

Honestly, I wasn't all that worried. I don't know why. Just saw it as guys being guys -- just in wolf form.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?


Didn't really have a reaction to her, but I began to like her more when I saw that she worried as much as she did.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

I wasn't really surprised that they had some sort of abilities. They have to be able to match up or exceed a vampire's strength, so why not?

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?


I wasn't sure how it could continue. I knew they couldn't go back to before the wolf thing got in the way. And with her knowledge of this legend coming true, how to proceed. Just a lot of questions.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?


Sounded just like Bella.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
I was a little scared for Bella and then Jacob, but then the others just shrugged it off and I calmed down and realised that Paul does this sort of thing all the time (Y) Amazing Paul :D

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I liked Emily, the way that she interacted with the wolves was nice, like they really were her family. I didnt think that this would be the sort of person Bella would get along with as she hangs with the vamps and all that. Then again, Emily was nothing but nice.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
I think that the healing and the reflexes evolved with them over time to make them a better match for the vampires. I like the fact that its more even, as they wouldn't really be doing a good job if they didnt have anything to fight them with.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I was glad that there were no more secrets, and that Bella could finally know the whole of who Jacob was. I think it took a whole lot of weight off both of their shoulders, as Jake was doing nothing wrong (that he could help) and Bella knew who he was without all the lies.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
I understand that whatever Edward did, Bella would still love him. Nothing could change that, ever.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
I hope Jake doesn't get hurt!

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
First I thought she was mean and wasn't going to like Bella at all. Two lines later I realized Bella and she would get along.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
No, I wasn't worried. By the way Laurent responded, I figured he knew he was no match for the wolves. So why would I feel worried now?

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I still thought that Victoria was going to be the only 'problem' in this book. So, I figured they would come together even more, maybe even have a relationship at some point.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
I could totally understand it. When you're in love, you're in love.

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?

It was pretty violent... An interesting scene to read.

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?

I liked her, and yes, I thought they would get along.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?

I thought they had really cool abilities, and I wans't concerned about them fighting vampires at all -- they seemed pretty capable.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?

I like their relationship, honestly. I think that Jacob is really good for her.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?

Odd... It doesn't make much sense, but then again, she said that love is irrational. Still, I think it's kind of unfair that she was so angry at Jacob when she thought he was responsible for it, yet she would continue to love Edward if he was...

1. What was your reaction to Jacob and Paul fighting as wolves?
Typical males!

2. What was your first reaction to Emily? Did you instantly like her? Did you think she and Bella would get along?
I thought she was obnoxious at first, actually. Her comment to Bella about her being the "vampire girl", especially given werewolf opinions on vampires, seemed rude and an attempt at stereotyping. But she turned out to be nice.

3. What was your reaction to the abilities that the wolves seemed to possess that were uncovered in this chapter - accelerated healing and quick reflexes? Where you worried about them fighting a vampire?
No. They obviously knew how to beat one, or they wouldn't have beaten Laurent.

4. How did you feel about Jacob and Bella's relationship at this point?
I thought they were getting a little too cozy for my liking.

5. What are your thoughts and feelings on Bella's conclusion that she would love Edward even if he was the vampire who was killing innocent hikers/people?
I think one of the reasons Bella loved Edward is because she knew from the start that he wasn't like this. However, she is so deeply in love with him that she can't imagine any scenario where she wouldn't love him. She is also such a caring person that her love covers over sins like this, although I don't think she would ever have loved Edward as deeply if he was like this.
