one of my favorite book series when i was younger. just bought the whole series so i could reread it. :)
“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars – points of light and reason ... And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”

The cover suggests a central moment in the story, which I can’t give away here!
