In Dead Until Dark, Vampires seem to be attracted to the Bon Temps area because it is a place where they are acknowledged and protected. In Twilight, vampires are more of a fable; however, they still blend with human beings and only a select few know that they exist. Dead until Dark and Twilight are two suspenseful, romantic novels that is about a young girl who falls in love with a dangerous vampire. Bella and Edward’s relationship shows similar characteristics to that of Sookie and Bills. In Twilight, Bella and Edward gives the impression that they have a healthier relationship than Sookie and Bill. Both of their relationships share comparisons and contrasts that make the books analogous.
First, when comparing the relationships, it is significant to know where the girls came from and how they met their vampire lover. In Twilight, Bella moved from Phoenix Arizona to the small, quiet town of Folks Washington to live with her father, Charlie. On Bella’s first day at her new school, she met Edward in the science class they happen to have together. It was ideal how there had coincidentally been an empty seat next to Edward, which left Bella to be paired up with him for the lab assignment. Since the moment Bella noticed Edward, she thought he was the most beautiful guy she had ever seen. During the lessons of the lab assignment, Edward seemed to become more and more repulsed by Bella, which made him want to switch out of the class and get far away from her. Edward had given Bella the ‘cold shoulder’ for a while and had disappeared for a few days -which infuriated her.

In Dead until Dark, the vampires could only come out at night which is why Bill always seemed to show up at Sookie’s work around the same time of night.

Sookie knew from the beginning that Bill was a vampire and she was still attracted to him, although Bella had gotten to know Edward before discovering his secret. Similar to Edward and Bella, Sookie too had become enthralled by Bill’s superior looks and charm; however, other than a few occasional glances, Bill did not appear too attracted to Sookie.
