Time: Now, around the year of 2002

Important places: Forks Phoenix Port Angeles

7. Setting's impact

Time set in present days so that we feel more in common with the characters in the story, which makes the novel more attractive.

Forks is a small town with a small population, where is more likely to have something unusual to happen. It is also one of the most sunless places in the world, which is reasonable for vampires to live in. Its surroundings, trees and mountains, provide a proper environment for all the adventure going on.

Phoenix has a large population, which is one of the reasons Bella choose it to be a hiding place during runaway. Also, it's the place where Bella grew up. James knew that human beings always wanted to seek somewhere familiar, so he predicted that Bella would run to Phoenix. That's how he tricked Bella into danger.

Port Angeles is new to Bella so that she finally got lost in the streets and met some bad guys. This accident gave Edward a chance to save Bella again which led to Bella's confession to him. It's a turning point in their relationship.

8. Climax

The Cullens decided to protect Bella because James, the tracker, wanted to hunt for her. Jasper and Alice ran Bella south while others lead the enemies off. When Bella was resting in a hotel in Phoenix, she got a phone call from her home. Thinking that her mother was in the hand of James', she had no choice but to do what she was told to. She determined to end this all by herself so that she got away from Jasper and Alice in the airport then went to the ballet studio to meet James. She was then found tricked and bit on the hand by James. James recorded how Bella was attacked and the story of Alice about the reason why she couldn't remember how she became a vampire. Bella was tortured to death when the others came to rescue. Because of his love for Bella, Edward was strong enough to suck the venom back out without killing her.
