So have you seen Twilight yet? I introduced the series here for Moonlight fans who were aching for their vampire fix. It is rumored that Moonlight was created with the Twilight books in mind…kind of an adult version of Twilight. There are some similarities and the most striking one is the name….aka Twilight and Moonlight.
Twilight is a love story between two teens…a vampire and human. Moonlight is a love story between a human and vampire and it throws them together in much the same way Bella and Edward are at school with Mick St. John being a detective and Beth being a reporter. They cross paths often when they work on the same cases.
Twilight’s Edward thinks of himself as a monster and he feeds on animals to be able to live with himself. Mick St. John also thinks of himself as a monster and he feeds on donated blood. Bella is inquisitive and discover Edward’s secret through investigation. Beth is an investigative reporter. Both Bella and Beth (see how similar the names are) learn of their friend’s vampirism and instead of being repulsed they are intrigued and it makes them closer.
I could probably list more similarities…but I am sure the screenwriters also tried to make them very different so they wouldn’t get into hot water…legally.
