It’s been 6 years since the stand off in the clearing and communication between the Volturi and the Cullen’s has been scarce. Since the moment the Volturi returned home their rules had never been more strict, their executions were happening daily and they wanted everyone to know who was in charge. If a clan got too large or too powerful they would strike – killing a majority and taking the most valuable for themselves, gaining in numbers. And vampires all over the world have noticed this and feared for their own safety and the safety of the ones they love. Which is why they turned to the Cullen’s – in hopes that one day, the Cullen’s could take the Volturi’s place.
