The latest book about a love affair with a vampire comes out at midnight tonight, and bookstores across Utah are expecting large crowds of mostly women.

The movie "Twilight" hits theaters in December, but now fans can find out what happens next to Edward and Jacob in "Breaking Dawn."

Karina Kerr, with Barnes and Noble in Murray says it's a lot like the hype surrounding the Harry Potter series. She says, "Harry Potter was a little bit more gender balanced and went a little bit younger. These are starting a little bit older, and it is more women."

Karr says they are having a pajama party at the Murray store. Other stores will have different themes.

Frosts books in Sugar House expect 200 to 300 people to pick up a copy of "Breaking Dawn" when the clock strikes 12.
