I felt that this book was really cheesy, and that the author completely trapped herself for the next book. First off, you know quite near the beginning of the book that to vampires and the werewolves will have to "join together to defeat the enemy". Right when Bella finds out that the vampires were just about to catch Victoria, but their rivalry got in the way. Its just so, "we must stand together to succeed". It wasn't that bad when they actually did join forces, but you still got the feeling that that was the underlying tone. Also, I feel that Stephenie Meyer really trapped herself for the next book. The only solution that I would like would be for Edward to die, but I don't think anyone else would like that. There really is no good ending for the series that I can think of now. Also, Bella's "great discovery" that the vampire in her room, the killings in Seattle, and Victoria were all linked, was sadly obvious. The plot was quite simple, made more complicated by Bella's relationship with Jacob and Edward, but that just caused people to either hate Jacob, or hate Edward.
