This is the first book in a series of graphic novels portraying the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. The story of Twilight is widely known: Bella moves to Forks and is drawn to Edward. She becomes suspicious of him and investigates, only to find that he matches the description of a vampire. Their love blooms after Edward admits his true identity, yet they face obstacles which may cost them their lives.

Young Kim, the illustrator, did a fantastic job of bringing Twilight to life. Her drawings were detailed and very close to how I imagined the characters and situations while I was reading the original novel. Through gorgeous black and white illustrations, I found myself reliving one of my favourite vampire love stories.

This book stays quite true to the original story. There appeared to be a few minor differences, but nothing that affected the quality of this fantastic, artistic retelling.

I recommend this to Twilight fans and to those who enjoy graphic novels. If you're fond of beautiful illustrations and compelling romances, this book is for you.
