Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer’s cryptic countdown keeps fans spinning


dusk author Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the four hugely popular books, posted a mysterious countdown until May 4 on his website,

He threw diehard supernatural fans into a whirlwind, with theories suggesting that Meyer would finally publish the dusk partner book, Midnight Sun.

Midnight Sun is told from the perspective of vampire Edward Cullen, who was played by British actor Robert Pattinson in all five films.

The original books, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Twilight, were told from the perspective of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart).

In a blog post on his website, Meyer said there was “much more” in Edward’s story.

“There is so much more to her version of the story than that of Bella in this first chapter,” she wrote in the undated post.

“After all, Bella only knows that an incredibly gorgeous boy is looking at her in a funny way. Meanwhile, Edward suffers through one of the most important days of his very long life.

“First there is the shock and frustration of not being able to hear Bella’s thoughts, then the savage and monstrous reaction to her scent, followed by the incredible expense of self-control it takes to avoid it.” kill … Her side of Bella’s first day at Forks High School is a hundred times more exciting than hers.

“Even though I didn’t have time to work on it right away, the idea of ​​letting Edward have a chance to speak stuck with me.”

It would be a long time coming if this is the case, with a draft of the novel which fled in 2008, when the first film was created and became an instant cultural phenomenon.

Meyer abandoned the project at the time, and it has yet to be released.

The 46-year-old author, who is worth $ 125 million, is also co-owner of the production company Fickle Fish, which suggests to others that the countdown could be linked to the film.

The five films in the franchise brought in an astronomical $ 3.346 billion at the world box office, with the sequel New Moon breaking box office records at the time as the largest screening and opening day at midnight in history, with an estimated total of $ 72.7 million.

It was not only the majestic story of vampires and werewolves that captivated the world, but its three little-known stars. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were young actors with fresh faces when they were cast in the first low-budget film in 2007.

They then became the three most famous actors in Hollywood at the time dusk fever has exploded worldwide.

The original book was published in 2005 with a circulation of 75,000 copies. He debuted at number five on the New York Times best sellers list within a month of his release, then peaked at number one.
