In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life. She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous. Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of. In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's bestselling authors.
Never underestimate the power of your dreams...this is what author, Stephenie Meyer learned when she had a dream in June of 2003 about characters who had a quality of being real, and who she could not get out of her head. She was a busy mother of three young sons at the time, and had so many daily needs to be met. She began by writing down her thoughts when she could and started thinking about plots through swim lessons, potty-training, and late at night when the house was quiet. Within three months, she completed her first written piece...ever...Twilight! After submitting the manuscript to several publishers, it was chosen out of a pile of manuscripts, and was published by Little, Brown, where all readers fell in love with the multi-layered story of the young lovers.
Of course, the new book received many, many awards and the anticipation was feverish for the second in the Saga to be released. In September of 2006, New Moon was released to raving reviews and more than 25 weeks as #1on the New York Times bestseller list. Eclipse was released in 2007, and in 2008, the final book in the Twilight Saga , Breaking Dawn, was released at 12:01 midnight on August 2. All books of the series were adapted to full feature films, with record breaking grosses.
Stephenie lives in Arizona with her husband and three sons...probably hoping for another really good dream!
