Midnight Sun is Stephanie Meyer’s newest addition to her #1 bestselling Twilight Saga. This novel retells Twilight from Edward’s perspective, providing a better explanation for Edward’s actions in Twilight and the following book, New Moon. Edward’s character grew a lot throughout this novel as his thoughts provided explanation for his stalker-like actions and proved him to be flawed. Midnight Sun satisfies everything I wanted from Edward’s perspective, and while Midnight Sun and Twilight have been criticized for Edward and Bella’s seemingly instant romance, this new novel adds depth to their relationship. By no means is this a new story; it just provides more detail and adds development to the original.
Additionally, Meyer’s writing ability has grown immensely over the past decade. Gone are some of the generic descriptions, adding a better flow to the book. Midnight Sun sucked me back into the Twilight universe after five years and I was not disappointed; it might be time for another Twilight phase!
