Twilight & History

For those who are interested in the period aspects of the vampires in Twilight you might want to checkout 'Twilight and History' by Nancy Reagin.

I stumbled across it when I was searching for the name of Maria's sire and what little I read looked interesting if only for the fac that there's a big old chunk devoted to our favourite Major. I make no claims whatever about the accuracy of any of the content. I do intend to read the chapter about 'Jasper Hale; The Oldest Living Confederate Veteran' though, if only to see if they can shed any light on the 'age & date of change' connundrum.

It's available for partial reading on Google books online. I will be checking to see if it's in my local library.

Incidentally, the 'look inside' versions on Amazon have a timeline comparison of human -vs- Twilight history from the creation of the Volturi onwards.


  1. that looks to be an interesting book, alright. Though I'll venture to say there are more ways to interpret Jasper's rise in ranks.

  2. Yes, I would venture to say that a good looking young man like that with so much 'charisma' could probably move up the ranks pretty fast if he 'knew' the right people.
